solution, double them up! get two and snap them together, this gives about an 8" diameter tube.

Step 3: Baffle Top

cut a circle out the diameter of the tube, then cut out the center for the bird feeder pole.

pop rivet 4 small brackets to hold the tip to the tube.

I added duct tape to the inside just as added insurance to keep the joints together.

Step 4: Baffle Hold Up

get our create two to four "L" brackets and a stainless steel house clamp sized for your reader pole.

clamp the brackets to the pole with the ss tube clamp at a height that the squirrels can't jump to.

Would love for this to work but I have stove pipes on my bird feeder pole & the squirrels do not have a problem jumping up 5' to reach the feeders. Let me know if this works for anyone. Thanks
