How it works
Wire strength is just right
First, we use the same strong, custom Cagetopia wires that we use for reinforcing our cage ramps. These are COATED wires with a high degree of strength that hold the shape of their bend and yet are bendable by hand.
Wire coating is just right
Our COATED wires are the PERFECT gauge for inserting into Coroplast flutes. The special coating on them helps grip the Coroplast flute perfectly -- no slip-sliding around. And not all Coroplast flutes are identical in size and shape. Our coating provides just the right amount of flexibility to fit comfortably in all 4mm Coroplast flutes.
Insert Ramp Hooks (ONCE) in your best ramp flap location
You insert the ramp hook in the flap at the top of the ramp in the best flute position such that it fits perfectly in a grid-hole at the top of the ramp. People's setups can vary on how much wire there is at the top of a ramp landing. You can adapt to your setup with this system.
LIFT UP the Coro of the Loft, Patio or Upper Level
Lift up the Coroplast which is the floor of the upper level by a couple of inches. DROP in the ramp flap, and put the loft Coroplast back down.
The Engineering WORKS!
The placement and weight of the loft coroplast on top of the ramp flap very easily keeps the hook secure. It won't come loose. Try it and see.
WE SHIP THE WIRES FLAT
Please note that we ship you the wires in a "U-shape" and flat. We do NOT pre-bend them into the final 90-degree angle. Too much risk of it not showing up perfectly due to shipping, so we also send you great instructions for making the simple bend yourself before you insert them into your ramp flap. It's similar to how we ship the ramps themselves -- flat -- and you fold up the ramp walls into place.
Also please note that the wires may not be perfectly identical. We don't have a fancy machine to stamp them out identically, so they are hand-crafted. Thank you.
