1 back panel with both the bottom grille and the tray holder attached
2 side pieces – 1 plastic tray - 2483BC – 4 feeders & 4 perches
Take the front piece with the top attached and set it upon its side with the top extended to the side.
Next take the back with the bottom grille and tray
holder and set it up on its side next to the front panel. Push the front
panel over to the back panel so the hooks on the top of the cage grab
the back panel and they can be squeezed closed.
Most ordinary pliers will fit in between the bars so
you can get a good tight squeeze on the hooks. Make sure you push the
hook as far as possible before squeezing it closed. Then slide the
bottom grill over to the front and attach the same way.
Now take one of the side pieces and
place it on top of what you have assembled with the handle to the
outside and the 3 half loops to the bottom, Once in place squeeze the 3
hooks at the top and then the hooks on each side. Now there is a hook
on the side of the bottom grill sticking out, it goes on top of the
second horizontal bar from the bottom for support and is squeezed as
Now take the tray holder and pull
it over the 3 half circles on the bottom of the side piece and squeeze
them up on the tray wire.
Now turn the cage over and install the other side the same way. For the bird cage just install the tray, feeders and perches.
The small animal cages now need the ladders and
platforms installed. The platforms have tabs that go over the vertical
bars on the front and back of the cage, once in place these need to be
squeezed to hold in place and adds even more stability to the cage.
We’re adding hooks on the side that fit against the side of the cage,
some of the 55" have them now but the 36" won’t have them until Feb,
The ladders are made long on purpose, once you have
the platforms in place and squeezed, set the ladder in place and you can
either just leave them the length they are or you can cut the bottom to
If you’re cutting them measure the ladder so it is a
little longer than you need, you can cut away any rungs that aren’t
needed and bend the ends around the platforms to give you the best fit.
When using this cage for small
animals we include cable ties to close the feeder doors not needed and
clips to use as locks for the large doors.
If you follow these instructions this is a very strong and safe cage for your small animals.
