Intro: Squirrel Baffle
keep squirrels off of your Bird feeder.
Step 1: Didn't Work
the single 4" aluminum vent pipe was to skinny, the squirrels could still climb it.
Step 2: Double It Up
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.
Step 5: Put It All Together
slide the baffle over the pole and let it rest on the hold up brackets.
add your feeder accessories
tip off with house
Step 6: Finnished!
sit back and watch the birds eat and the squirrels be frustrated.
