I love this cage. I like to go on road trips with my sugar gliders but always worry about the what ifs. What if we get into an accident? What if we have to stay in the car overnight? The what if's continue, with this cage however I feel more at ease. The handle is good as an extra place to pull a seatbelt through. I use an addition belt to lock the cage into place. If we stop for a long time, the gliders get to come out of their pouch and get food/water with out a worry. I have also dropped it (No gliders inside) and the cage survived so I have hope for it if we got into a minor accident. The assembly was easy but I think with a single person it can be frustrating. Its a great product however and I think if you buy it, you will not be disappointed. I use flannel sheets to cover part of the bottom so that my gliders are not standing on the grate when we go on the car rides. It seems to work pretty good and washing them out/ drying them is a simple task in most hotels/ rest stops. My gliders really like the road trips and this is a good product for that end.
This a very sturdy carry cage. It's well made, a little heavy. It's better tha anything similar out there for the money. - Frank S.
Cage is exactly what I needed for a small temporary cage/travel cage. Very well made and has large access door to fit wheel and accessories. - Theresa W.
We just added a 4th travel cage for our growing critter family. These are very rugged & sturdy cages - they’re not lightweight junk like most small animal cages.
My only suggestion would be that during travel, the the spring-loaded tab that holds the pan & cage bottom in place can rotate out of the way. This potentially could allow the cage bottom to fall out if not noticed, allowing smaller animals to escape. I simply bent the end of the tab over, so it now locks under the tray handle, and we’ve not experienced any further issues. -Pete G.
I assembled the cage in about 20 minutes. All the parts were there and the plans were easy to read. Being a Travel Cage, I can understand why there are no platforms with the unit. The plastic trays are too easy to tip over with my rambunctious animal so I bought several red aluminum cups & wing nut holders and that does the trick. Heavy and strong cage. Very Happy! -Dik M.
