The SquirrelStop® automatic spinning squirrel deterrent safely and harmlessly protects your hanging bird feeder from hungry squirrels.
When a squirrel climbs onto the feeder, the increased weight starts the SquirrelStop motor, which spins the feeder and causes the squirrel to jump off.
Squirrels soon learn to leave your feeder alone - and birds can enjoy their food undisturbed.

The SquirrelStop automatic spinning squirrel deterrent protects your hanging bird feeder from squirrels safely and efficiently. When a squirrel climbs onto the birdfeeder, the increased weight activates the SquirrelStop motor, which spins the feeder and causes the squirrel to jump off. Since birds weigh much less than squirrels, they don't activate the SquirrelStop.
Setting up the SquirrelStop is easy. Simply hang the device where both the SquirrelStop and your feeder will be at least 40 cm (16 inches) from the nearest object.
Fill the feeder with seed (ensuring the total weight of the feeder is less than 10lbs (4.5 kgs), hang the feeder from the SquirrelStop, and turn the device on. That's all there is to it.
When it's time to refill your feeder, switch off the SquirrelStop, remove the feeder, and fill it with seed. Then hang the full feeder from the SquirrelStop, and turn the SquirrelStop back on.
The weight of the squirrel on top of the feeder starts the SquirrelStop spinning for 20 seconds, which causes the squirrel to jump off.
Birds, being significantly lighter than squirrels, are unable to trigger the SquirrelStop, even if several birds are on the feeder at the same time.
Suitable for birdfeeders up to 10 lbs (4.5 kgs) total weight including birdseed.
Operates on three D-cell batteries.
