I use the slinkys to keep the squirrels off. Works pretty good. I did have a buck hook his antler in one though..... that was a wreck!!! A slinky is pretty long when it's stretch out at warp speed !

Forgive my ignorance but can someone explain the slinky method? I'm losing the war with the coons.

I use them. Just slip it over the feeder leg then zip tie it where it is hanging about halfway down the leg. Racoon starts up the leg and hits the slinky and zoom to the ground he goes and it makes a lot of noise. After a few tries they just leave it alone.
