Cheap components, not the best
"Got one of these, thinking pay a little more, get a better product.
How wrong was I?
2 problems immediately cropped up.
Firstly the screws with a wing nut head are garbage. The pressed steel wing nuts don't really grip the actual screws, meaning they should have really used just normal screws. Also the screws are silvery (I presume they may be galvanised, but with the cheap components used I'm beginning to question this) These screws gould also have been made in black to blend in as opposed to standing out. Minor point I know but worth mentioning in a review.
Next comes the bigger problem, the tubes that make up the main upright pole. It comes in three sections, and screws together. But the metal used for the poles is far too thin on the bottom ground spike pole. So when you use a hammer to fix it into your garden, the top splays out. This in turn means the rest of the upright pole cant fit over. The only way to fit the rest of the feeder is to file down the splayed out head, and then fit. There are two ways this could be fixed: Include a small tool that fits over the ground spike so when hammering the spike in, the metal cant splay, or make the ground spike out of thicker metal, or even a solid spike.
For those wondering the ground it went into is really soft at the moment, so I'm not trying to batter into hard ground.
Over all this looks fine, and but for the defects in the materials, this would be great."
