Great weather shield and is perfect for yard hangers and poles and will never block your view of feeding birds while it protects. When 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 1/2" to 1 3/8" diameter pole. For best results, pole mount at approximately 5' high, below the feeder or bird house.
