It is recommended by RWAF that rabbits have constant access to both their hutch and run, allowing exercise and behavioral needs to be met but also allowing your rabbit to access its hutch if it felt insecure or the weather is bad.You can connect your existing hutch, shed or run together using our solid and sturdy Pipe Connector kits. See how these are fitted on the short video here
This pipe connector kit provides you with a choice of connectors s to allow you to connect between a hutch/shed and run, between two runs or between two hutch/sheds.*Please note our pipe connector kits are now made out of black plastic to increase strength and durability (not wood as pictured)
By using our supplied template and instructions, simply create an aperture in the mesh or cladding by cutting out a square and bolt the pipe connector to your run or hutch door using the supplied bolts and washers.
All you need to do then is choose the size of the pipe you need to make your set up complete(pipes sold separately). The pipe simply fits in the hole and the connector locks on to it all the way round the pipe, ensuring that it is secure. Disconnecting the pipe and reattaching it is simple, it only take a couple of turns of two wing nuts and it's done.
If you would like to remove the pipe and block the hole, please look at our 'solid door stop'. This can be used to cover the hole when the pipe is being removed or cleaned.
The pipe has a diameter of 160mm (6'' approx). This should be suitable for small to medium sized rabbits.
This connector should also fit most other 6'' corrugated pipes on the market. If you have any queries, please feel free to get in touch.
The pipe connector is protected with animal friendly preservative and weather proofed for the first year. It is recommended that additional weatherproofing should be applied after the first year to keep the product in good condition. Please see our product care section. Pack Contents
