Top Customer Reviews
Size: HUGE. This cage is at MINIMUM the size stated above. The one I recieved when ordering this product stands as tall as I am at the playtop perch, and I am 6'1. The wings/seed guards add 6" to the dimensions on all sides so account for that when sizing your space for the cage.
Quality: Well, its a huge cage for $118. You get what you pay for, but in this case I was pleasantly surprised. The cage is made of tubular square stock steel, with solid 1/8" round stock welded bars. The finish is a hammertone enamel, it did flake where any of the parts were bent too far for the stretch of the paint, however my experience with this finish is generally pretty good. It is a durable and easy to clean attractive finish. The trays are a heavy duty solid steel sheet construction, they are hefty, and sturdy, they will not break...period. The wheels are cheap chinese plastic casters, I expect them to break the first time they catch on something while moving the cage, luckily the legs of the cage have standard caster post holes built into them and the casters should be able to be replaced with sturdier ones. The latch is handy, with a single button to push to unlock the 2nd stage, then slide open. To close, simply slide the latch over. Would I trust it to house a gorilla? No. Its for small birds, its flimsy in construction. I don't think I would trust it to the beak power of the larger breeds of birds. My conure has no chance of breaking or bending this lock. Hinges are integrated and strong. Overall, I give the quality of the cage 5 stars, as it is as best as I could expect for 1/3-1/4 the price of a retail cage of this size with no major let downs. The playtop perch is so strong it could hold a bald eagle let alone the conures and african grays that this cage is intended for.
Assembly: Well, this is probably the most lacking part of the whole thing. Step one is to take their instructions, and place it on the cage tray as that is about all its good for, cage liner. It is written in broken chringrish with little to no actual direction in either the written or graphic representations. I'll give a quick how to in this section. The front and back of the cage are joined together by two small sections at the bottom. Use the LONG screws to attach these to the front and back of the cage, with the WIDE track on the cage up, facing inward. The sides of the cage are designed so that when you want to unlatch the food cup doors, you flip the lever upside down, pull the latch out of the catch, then flip it back downward to open the door. If the latch stays so that you can just slide it out of the catch, you have the side installed upside down. The guides that the cage sides slot into were bent too far closed on my cage, a pair of pliers straightened that out for me. The top just sits down in the posts and captures the sides of the cage, it does not have fasteners to secure it down. Not a problem with a conure, but a big strong bird like a macaw might be able to push the top of the cage off with some effort and a sturdy perch. The wrench they give you WILL NOT handle being used to assemble the cage, just find an allen wrench of the same size from your tool kit to assemble it with, you wont regret it. If you must use the allen key they give you, then use it with the low leverage side of the key in your hand, so you cant strip it out in the screws. Once it strips you wont be able to tighten another screw with it. My cage included 1 extra of each type of hardware and a bell shaped plate, which many didn't know what it was for in other reviews, I discovered it is a latch to prevent the bottom grate from being slid out by the bird from inside the cage. There is a screw hole under the door on the frame for a screw and this plate. Don't tighten it all the way, so the plate swivels for grate removal.
Packaging: Sucked. Its all flat packed into a box with very little to no protection on the items that are touching. It is a 67 lb package, that is very heavy, and a package handler at UPS is not going to finesse this box around. Lets face it, its gonna get dropped, lugged, and tossed onto every surface it touches. The packaging could use some upgrading to better protect its heavy contents from shifting and banging around into one another.
My bird is quite happy with his home, in fact he jumped from his existing cage to the new one, while i was still bolting the individual pieces together. He hasnt left the cage willingly since in hours. He is tiny for the cage, but since were away 10 hrs a day, we wanted him to have plenty of room for lots of new toys and space to move around whilst in his cage. Im sure it will be a great home for him for years to come. The seed guards are a godsend, dont buy a cage without them. This cage is hands down best bang for your buck in the 18-24" wide range, and with the removable playtop assembly, its even better than most options. Don't hesitate to buy this product.
Overall it is a great cage for the money you spend on the cage: $119 GREAT PRICE! The instructions on how to put the cage together was more or less a pain in the bottom. The metal is thinner and depending on how it was handled while it was being shipping if it was bent a bit or not. If it was, a flat head screwdriver will help bend whatever piece back in its right place. It is a cute birdcage and George loves it and it is not too big for our house. I like the fact that when it is put together it looks great. I also like the fact George can not get out of the cage! That is, a blessing in itself because he is an escape artist.
The size of this cage will fit any Amazon, African Grey or smaller bird. It gives them enough play room and enough room to move around and spread their wings. The top of the cage has a play area that includes a ladder and a wooden perch for them to sit and do whatever a bird wants to do. You can add toys up there for them to play with and watch them get out and stretch.
The quality of the Giantex cage is ok in how it was made. The cage is made of tubular square stock steel, with solid 1/8" round stock welded bars. The finish is a hammertone enamel. It is easy to bend but is still a good cage to house your beloved pet. George has been sliding up and down the bars since he was put in this afternoon and they have not bent with his weight. The trays are a heavy duty solid steel sheet construction which they seem to be hefty and sturdy. The wheels are made of cheap like plastic that you do not want to be rough with them. Find a place for your cage and leave it there, in my opinion, or have someone help you move it around to where you desire it to go.
The assembly this cage is probably the most lacking part of the whole thing project. The instructions are horrid. It is written in broken gibberish with little to no actual direction in either the written or graphic representations. Just a little bit of information, the little “wrench” they provide really does not do a great job at tightening the bolts. I used my father's allen wrench of the same size to tighten the bolts they provided. I will provide instructions to help whoever decides to buy the cage so you will have any easier time assembling then I did. The front and back of the cage are joined together by two small sections at the bottom. Use the LONG screws to attach these to the front and back of the cage, with the WIDE track on the cage up, facing inward. The sides of the cage are designed so that when you want to unlatch the food cup doors, you flip the lever upside down, pull the latch out of the catch, then flip it back downward to open the door. If the latch stays so that you can just slide it out of the catch, you have the side installed upside down. The guides that the cage sides slot into were bent too far closed on my cage, a flat head screw driver straightened that out for me. The top just sits down in the posts and captures the sides of the cage, it does not have fasteners to secure it down. However, I did have some problems with the top not aligning like it was suppose to, so be careful, you might need another person to help with the top piece. My cage included 1 extra of each type of hardware and 2 bell shaped plates. I discovered it is a latch to prevent the bottom grate from being slid out by the bird from inside the cage. There is a screw hole under the door on the frame for a screw and this plate. Do not tighten it all the way, so the plate swivels for grate removal. Also The second on you can use for the main door to keep your bird locked in if he figures out how to escape.
All in all this cage is a good product after the minor hiccups that did occur. Do not hesitate to buy this product. My Amazon is in the living room watching television and playing around in his cage. He is a happy parrot for sure. For the money you spend, you will be happy with the end result!
I use this cage for an Indian Ringneck Parakeet (About 8 inch body 9 inch tail) and she loves it! The top is stable and an excellent place for a bird to sit back and watch the action of the room. All of the doors are impossible for a bird to open from the inside, so I never worry about my IRN escaping. The seed catcher is really a great added bonus and helps to keep the room a little cleaner. Do not assume you will have no seeds on the floor, I still vacuum once or twice a week to pick up rogue seeds.
All the trays slide out easily and are super easy to clean. I would order this cage again, its a great value!!
