The premier Original Absolute Squirrel Resistant single-sided feeder is for the serious bird enthusiast. This attractive feeder will attract a wide array of birds to your yard, with a locking top and spring-activated perch that work together to keep squirrels away. This rugged, all-metal squirrel-resistant feeder has a counter balanced perch, adjustable to three positions to allow light, medium or heavy birds on the perch. The wrong bird or squirrel closes access to seed. Holding up to 15 lbs of birds favorite mixed seed, sunflower seeds, peanut halves or safflower, this extra large capacity requires less frequent filling. Stop birds from shoveling food out with the no waste seed saver baffle. Durable, chew-resistant green powder coated steel body with a zinc-plated steel hanger and black powder coated pole. Simply unlatch the squirrel resistant roof and lift for easy filling and cleaning, while seed level indicator window show when feeder is empty. The overhanging roof and hopper keeps the seed dry and protected from the elements and the all- steel body ensures it will withstand all types of weather and unwanted critters in your backyard for many seasons. Top locks down securely preventing squirrel access and when a squirrel steps onto the perch, a metal shield immediately covers the seed tray, shutting off the seed supply. Bird feeder is fully assembled, includes a steel hanging rod for hanging, and a 5 foot sectional pole kit with metal mounting bracket and ground socket for optional pole mounting. .

The food doesn't get wet. (This feeder is really low maintenance!)
The spring tension can be adjusted for the sizes of birds which frequent your feeder. (My visitors are chickadees, nuthatches, cardinals, finches, woodpeckers, bluejays and a few others, and only when there are multiples attempting concurrent access, does the tension close the lid.)
The feeders last for years. I think I have had mine for 20 years. Have had to replace the wooden perch - twice - and had to replace the plastic piece on the base of it which fits on the post. (Mine is on a pole.)
The squirrels come from below, and when they reach for the food, the spring closes the "lid" to the hopper. When they try from above (the "roof," they have to lean on the perch, and the same thing happens. Birds do "pick" and drop some seed to the ground, so the squirrels get theirs from the ground. All in all, I think everyone is happy.
I had a spring-loaded version previously, but found that chipmunks were light enough to only deflect the bar part-way, allowing them to sit there and chow down.
This feeder's counter-balance design closes completely once the balance weight is exceeded, shutting the chipmunks out completely!
I have some issues with the design. First, it seems just a little less well constructed than I would expect for a feeder in this price range. The steel case is just a little thin, the latching mechanism for cover is weak and, most importantly, the perch is too close to the seed trough for large birds, and can't be adjusted. That said, the larger birds (cardinals, jays, mourning doves) are able to use the feeder, but they have to twist their bodies parallel to the perch in order to do it.
The counter-weighted mechanism that closes a shutter to block access to the seed works well. When I received it, the bars were set to close at an indicated 2 ounces of weight on the perch. I tested the setting with some weights and found that it actually closed at 3 ounces. I changed it so that it closes at 4 ounces and that seems to work for any combination of birds and squirrels that I've seen. The squirrels have been relentless in their attempts to defeat the mechanism, but so far they have not succeeded. It's entertaining to watch their antics and the contortions they go through in their vain (so far) attempt to access the seed.
I have the feeder hanging from a tree branch, so I can't comment on the fixed stand that comes with the feeder.
