Slinkys are American made... you should be ashamed of yourself.

I made my son a protein feeder and the coons were just gorging on the stuff all day and night . Put Slinkys on the legs and not even any pictures of any on the ground under it , so for him it worked !

No proof on 2, 4 or 5. Just more proof that it doesn't work.

All i see is a few pics of coins on a feeder and some around one, hell thats every feeder in the USA. One would think with this odd obsession there would be more concrete evidence.

No sir. Like I said my last pic of a coon was in January. They can still eat it off the ground, but right now I only feed in the mornings. Most of the feed is gone before it gets dark. I think that combined with the fact that I have Slinky's on the legs the coons just moved on.

I have news on the slinky approach. I put mine on in October and fully believe that they kept the coons off the feeder. You can read in my post above that pre-slinky, coons were on the cage and you would see that the spinner had moved between feedings meaning something gave it a spin. Post slinky, you would not see the spinner moved and the number of coons near my feeder dropped significantly. I just went through 401 photos from March and found 1 with a single coon under the feeder. That's it. From 6-8 under it in the early season to 1 in 401 pics over a months timeframe.

Today, when I pulled up to the feeder, I noticed two of the four slinkies were stretched nearly to the ground. They had kinks about halfway up which made them tight on the feeder legs so they served as great ladders to the golden nugget dispensary. Sure enough, pics showed that on the morning of July 20, the *******s stretched out the slinkies and got to the feeder.

Given I have photos that showed my feeder not being accosted and then ultimately raped by the trash pandas...I believe the slinkies worked from October until earlier this month. I'll be putting new ones on.

I had one Slinky stretched out back around February I think. I replaced it and haven't had anymore issues. It's a cheap solution to help deter coons.

Seems to me that a 2 foot section of PVC pipe attached to the bottom of the slinky would be better. It springs toward the ground and the coon never gets on the slinky itself.

I don't have them listed on my website but if anyone needs some I still have a bunch. Maybe I need to run a promo and clear them out.
