The Woodlink 16" Clear Plastic Baffle prevents squirrels and small raccoons from raiding your bird feeders and scaring away birds. Makes a great weather shield and is perfect for yard hangers and poles and will never block your view of feeding birds while it protects. When the baffle is pole mounted, it creates a rounded "wall" that blocks squirrels, raccoons or chipmunks from climbing up to the feeder. When hung above creates a weather shield to protect your seed as well as discourage squirrels from climbing down to the feeder. Durable heavy-duty plastic construction with steel hanger withstands the elements. Hang above any hanging feeder or install on any ½” to 1 3/8" diameter pole, for best results, pole mount at approximately 5' high, below the feeder or bird house. Suspend bird feeder from included dual hook hanger or remove the hook and use 3 thumb screws to attach to pole and rest baffle on top.

During the last big storm here, one of our baffles was broken and we needed to get a new one. We had been using deeper dome baffles and decided it might be better to have a flatter design so that it was easier to see the birds. That is why we ordered this product. Here is what we liked:
1. Simple design that is very easy to use. You just need to keep in mind that the threaded thumb screws are NOT used to secure the baffle to the hanger!! Their intended use is to secure the mount to a pole when you remove the hook. This way it is used as a baffle to keep squirrels away from the feeder when the baffle is mounted under the bird feeder. Otherwise, the baffle just rests on top of the plastic piece that the hook passes through.
2. The baffle is wide enough to provide rain protection from rain falling without a wind. If it is windy, all bets are off and the baffle acts like a sail to move the feeder around. Of course, it is always entertaining to watch birds still manage to land on the feeder while this is happening. Sort of like watching aircraft land on a carrier during a storm.
3. Easy to remove the feeder to fill from the hook.
What I did not like as much:
1. The flat design seems to be more of a sail than the bell shaped domes. If you have a light weight feeder, say thistle, then there is a very good chance that the feeder and baffle will separate from the pole and wind up in the yard somewhere with possible damage to your baffle.
Overall, it appears to be a good product and I would recommend it. Amazon does not allow 1/2 stars which is why this is a 4 star and not a 4.5 star rating.
Why? You have a hanging hook which adds distance between the dome protection and feeder ports. I want the dome to sit on top and as close to the top of my feeding tubes...to shorten that distance. It is okay, but there are bigger and better made domes out there.
If you are not using a feeder tube, then I guess you have to use something like this, but I found the tube designs work best and keep large morning doves AWAY while attracting the birds I really want.
I installed the baffle at the top of a five foot pole immediately below a pole mounted bird feeder. The baffle itself is attractive, easy to install (flexible mounting screws insure a secure fit on most any pole) and reasonably priced. Unfortunately, the clear plastic is a magnet for various kinds of waste which substantially diminishes the esthetic appearance.
The screw lock does not keep the baffle itself from shifting (a strong wind will usually tilt it a bit) but I actually figured that might be a good thing inasmuch as it would just make it that much hard for a squirrel to conquer it.
This would have gotten five stars except that the plastic weathers in the sun and heat of summer in the South. The first one lasted three years before a thump from a squirrel or the wind or something cracked it; this is my second. That comes out to about 70 cents a month for keeping squirrels out of the bird feeder.
