    Small Cage Dimensions

    • Interior: 27" x 41" = about 7.5 Square Feet of cage space.
    • Exterior: 30" x 44" when assembled with grids (not included in this item) you will need a table space of about 2.5 feet by 3.75 feet to accommodate this cage.

    Coro Height Preference

    This refers to the HEIGHT of the COROPLAST on ONE long-side of the cage -- for the back wall.

    • 6" (inches) is standard. 6" sides all the way

      around maximizes ventilation and visibility, and it is generally high

      enough to keep in bedding for most guinea pigs. Also, a water bottle

      spout resting on the top of the 6" Coroplast is a good height for guinea

      pigs to drink from.

    • 12" (inches) is good if the long side of your cage

      is going up against a wall. This helps prevent hay (and in some cases

      bedding) from being kicked up and getting stuck against the wall. You

      can always cut it down later if you decide it doesn't work for you. The

      12" option is just to help you keep your floor and wall cleaner in some

      circumstances.


    NOTE: We do NOT offer 12" walls all the way around because we do NOT

    recommend it. It cuts off too much air circulation for the guinea pigs.

    In addition, even if you wanted it regardless of our advice, coroplast

    is only 48 inches wide and that would require 51 inches.

    Coroplast Base Includes

    • 4mm Coroplast bottom in your choice of 15 colors!

      27" x 41" x 6" sides for 2x3 Grid cage
      The base is cut and scored so you only have to secure the flaps.

      (Coroplast base is scored and folded for shipping, which makes an

      indented "crush" line, but it does not affect the function of the cage.

      It's barely noticeable when fully assembled.)

    • (16) Snap-in Plastic Rivets to fasten flaps.

    NEW! Rivets on the Flaps!

    • We've updated our cage design to make it even easier and more secure than ever! All of our Coroplast bases now come with nice, clean holes -- professionally punched in the appropriate locations. We include our new, easy-snap-in plastic rivets for securing the base. 
    • The rivets, while very secure when in place, can also be popped back open with a little separation pressure should you need to dissemble your cage and are generally reuseable.

    Our Cagetopia-brand Grids have stayed the same over the years as we have many hundreds of thousands of C&C cage owners (DIY and customers) that depend on the original sizes and the best quality grids and connectors.

    Supplying your OWN GRIDS?

    Or mixing in different grid sources or vendors? No 14" grids are the same anymore. Please review:

    • Many 14" grids are NO LONGER COMPATIBLE
    • Grid Vendors are now ALL DIFFERENT from each other
      Especially on Amazon, but also Bed, Bath & Beyond, Target, etc.
      • DIFFERENT CONNECTORS: gap spacing (space between grids) can be different (standard = 3/8") and that matters.
      • Grid Size: 14" exactly is required -- NOT 12" or anything else
      • Grid Wire Gauge (thickness): Grid vendors adapt their connectors to their wire gauge, which is typically thinner than ours (4mm = 3 pennies), so they won't work well together, if at all -- too tight or too loose.
      • Inner Grid-hole Size (safety-related):
        NO INNER HOLES BIGGER than 1.5" or you risk your guinea pig's head getting stuck and strangling. In a 14" grid, there should be 9 holes by 9 holes -- never less.
    • Using only Zip Ties (no connectors) is NOT RECOMMENDED.
      CAGETOPIA CONNECTORS WORK GREAT
      Some people complain about using the connectors. They are using NON-Cagetopia connectors. Ours work great and are easy to snap in, while being strong and stable.
      • Zip ties alone ARE NOT STRONGER as compared to using Connectors WITH zip ties (not opinion, engineering fact).
      • Many Cagetopia products will NOT be compatible for fit without using the connectors.
      • The fit of the coro inside the grids will be different.

    Trying to save a few dollars now on purchasing grids separately could be a frustrating, if not an expensive, decision later.

    All these things MATTER on CAGE BUILDING.

    If you buy one vendor's grids today and try to mix in a different vendor's grids from Amazon tomorrow, odds are high they may not be compatible with each other or our Cagetopia Grids.

    Second Awesome Purchase

    Product:
    Service:
    Replacing two year old cloroplast to freshen up the look of our girl's cage. Originally had a 2 x 4 but wanted something a little bit smaller. I was worried that our pigs wouldn't have enough room with the 2 x 3 with narrow loft but they still have plenty of room. Old base was all pink, this time I decided to go with all navy with pink Cavy Kitchen and I must say it is beautiful. Style of the chew gaurds have changed and are much thicker than old style which I love. Cloroplast is simple to put together and very great quality. I absolutely love this company and their products. Quick shipping and packaged nicely. Guinea Pig Cage Store has made me a life long customer!! Do not hesitate to buy, you or your piggies will not be disappointed.

    My boys couldn't be happier!

    I have two males who do not get along at all, but it is important to me, as well as them, that they be close to each other. I had more than enough grids to make two separate 2x3 cages, so I ordered two bases. Their cages are completely connected, but extra grids, down the middle, act as a barrier, so they both feel safe and comfortable, but can still interact when they want to. I love the coroplast colors I chose, but I also love the fact that I can order other colors when I want or need to, and it won't break the bank. Their room is so bright and cheery now! The bases are literally a simple snap to put together and everyone who meets my piglets or sees pictures compliments their home, the size, the uniqueness, and how happy they are. I love my boys and I love seeing them happy! :) Shipping was also super fast!

    Exactly what I have been trying to find! Large coroplastic is harder to find than I realized. This solved that problem and the pre-cut product is soooo convenient! Already had grids from a cage made by a friend but desperately needed a new bottom. Order came in efficient time and in great condition. Will definitely turn here the next time I need a new bottom!

    So Happy!

    Just this week I had ordered my two guinea pigs a 2x3 coroplast base. Having already had the grids from a previous 2x4 I only needed to purchase some zip ties to secure the cage even more. I ordered it on Tuesday and just received today on a Thursday, so shipping was incredibly fast. I am even considering buying a whole other level to add on for my piggies. So happy with this product!!! Recommend to everyone!

    So excited

    Rating:
    I just wanted to tell you how excited and happy both me and my piggies are with the awesome coroplast that you sent!!! They are so happy with all the extra space!! The youngest of the piggies loves to run laps. And I love that they're happy, and I can be organized with the storage underneath! Thank you so much!!!

    Two girls are in heaven

    Rating:
    I recently bought a sheet of coroplast from Sue. I had the grids, but I could not find corplast anywhere! My two girls are in heaven. They play tag several times a day and popcorn all the time. They are still babies so they get frightened easily, but I think the new cage will help them become more brave. I would recommend them to everyone. It saved me money and space!
