View Full Version : Need Advice for Removable extension

06-14-08, 01:10 pm
As some of you may have read my other posts, and some of you haven't... I've got two frisky 4 month old boars. I want to expand their cage from a 2x4 to a 3x4.

I loosely put on the addition with just connectors, and that makes me unable to reach the far back corner (the cage is in a corner, so going around is impossible!). I started fiddling with it a little, and basically the easiest thing for me to do now, is to add an additional 1x2, so that it would be an L-shape.

It would be much easier for me with my disabilities to be able to remove the addition to clean it. I'm having to use the grids to support the bottom of the extension(the other part is on a table that puts it at a perfect height to line up with the support grids, which is awesome!).

Instead of using zip ties, do you think I could use the mini binder clips for added security and removability? I've got about 100 of them (and I've only got 10 zip ties left anyway!).

In addition, I have no excess coroplast at the moment, so I'm using peel-and-stick vinyl tiles to do this addition... which I'm thinking will be best used as a kitchen area so they have the rest of the cage to romp.

Does anyone have any advice on a removable addition like this?


[My cousin can get me extra coroplast, but she does live 100 miles away, and we don't have a good time to meet for at least a month]

I figured out a way around it all. :D

Here's the boys' new cage:
