Flat Top Squirrel Baffle / Squirrel Guard
Cylindrical squirrel baffle for poles 1/2" to 1-3/4" diameter. Baffle has flat top and is 14-1/2" long and 7" in diameter. To keep squirrels from getting onto your bird feeder, place your pole-mounted feeders 8-10' away from railings, roofs or trees. The top of the squirrel baffle should be a minimum of 4' from the ground to protect the bird feeder.

I really like the design of this. Having a wide base on the ring for the top to sit on means the baffle does not become a giant unwanted wind chime. It's so solidly made as well that I feel like this is a re-purposed industrial part of some sort :-).
It has an unexpected benefit as well - it's stable enough to provide a feeding platform for some smaller birds to eat the dropped seeds from the feeder. I put crushed peanuts on their on purpose now, and the nuthatches and chickadees seem to appreciate it (and they appreciate the lack of chipmunks even more, I'm sure).
This thing works like a champ. Love it!
