How RollerFeeder Works & Rolls


how rollerfeeder works

Patented counter-balancing feature harmlessly ejects squirrels and helps to prevent loitering. The two-sided seed hopper stays upright while the exterior shell pivots around, keeping the seed intact and the squirrels at bay. Also, heavier birds will tilt the RollerFeeder just enough to prohibit them from feeding from the tray, this unique design is adjustable with weights provided

What is a RollerFeeder?  

A RollerFeeder is a bird feeder that fully spins in a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction.  The feeder allows small birds to feed while preventing squirrels and large birds from feeding.  The feeder typically hangs directly off a tree limb, tree trunk (or any horizontal extension) and is best for birds such as chickadees, finches, nuthatches, titmice, and other small birds.  When animals such as squirrels, raccoon’s, or large birds climb or land on the feeder, the outer shell, perch, and shaft sleeves spin. The fully rotational design prevents the unwanted visitor from resting or climbing about the feeder, and at the same time, closes off access to the feed ports.  Afterwards, the shell quickly rocks back into feeding position and is ready for the next chickadee to come along.  

How does a RollerFeeder work?

A seed container is bolted to a shaft.  The outer shell spins around the seed container in a clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation. How RollerFeeder Works The shell includes a perch platform, a counter-balance, and a window opening that permits access to the feed ports by small birds. When a rodent animal or large bird climbs or lands on the feeder, the rotating shell dislodges the unwanted visitor and closes access to the seed tray.  



Does it work?
