Decent size run, fully folding but only with a few quick alterations
on 10 June 2014
Good size run with sheltered bit, easy to put together. However in order to make it fully folding, we made the following quick and easy modifications:
Firstly remove the 2 metal bits which are in place on the side panels and which would hold the side frame rigid if used. For the lid switch the hinges to the topside so that the lid now folds over on itself, this makes it easier to get your pets in and out without trying to hang onto the lid. Don't screw the lid down but use 4 suitcase style clips in each corner which can be purchased for approx. £1.50 and thus securely hold the lid in place to the frame, but which can be easily unclipped when you want to fold up the run. Move the love heart lock from middle of doors to bottom of doors which just allows for a neater folding of lid.
This might sound like a lot of modifications but really they only took 10mins max. To make. I don't know why the manufacturer has the lid folding the way it does currently as it is most impractical, if they just switched the hinges around it would be easier and more practical.
The real test will be in how long the run lasts through the seasons.
