Driving the sleeve into the ground - cheap plastic
Just came from driving that sleeve into the ground ... even though I did use a block of wood (as suggested) the plastic sleeve kept breaking off in chunks both on top and in the ground (which was not even frozen) probably because it's made of cheap plastic! When there was about 2" of the sleeve still sticking out of the ground, I decided to place the pole into it and use that block of wood to drive the steel pole rather than continue to loose so much of the cheap plastic sleeve to continued breaks. Once that pole was placed into the sleeve it wouldn't come out again! This will prove annoying when the time comes to mow the lawn. Wanting the job done, I used that block of wood to pound on the pole to drive it in further in then finally managed to secure (what I assumed) was about the required 12" depth. The birds better come after this disappointing installation.

Does the job
I mounted this pole by first driving a 2 ft length of 3/4" copper pipe. Then this pole with the plastic sleeve slide over it. Worked like a charm. You're going to need a squirrel collier though as they will climb the pole easily.

Good but now need a squirrel guard
I like these very much. Bought and installed two of them thinking they would keep squirrels away from feeders but alas, no. Now searching for something for the poles to shield against the squirrels. P.S. I didnt use the plastic sleeves to install these in the ground and had no issues
