Assembly Instructions:
  • Remove crate from packaging.
  • Release the side clips (2) used to keep the crate in the folded position.
  • Unzip top door opening.
  • Press down bottom bars into locked position. A “click” will indicate you have locked the bars in place. Check that both bottom bars have locked.
  • Stand to one side of the crate and grasp the two piece top bar with both hands. For protection during shipment, the top bars may be attached to the side bars with rubber bands and Styrofoam sleeves. Please remove and discard the rubber bands and Styrofoam sleeves.
  • Gradually pull the two bars upward so they join each other (be careful not to pinch your hand at the connection point).
  • Slide the closure sleeve over the connection until it is fully extended and frame is rigid (repeat the same process for the other side).
Break-down Directions:
  • Unzip top door opening.
  • Press in one of the large center release buttons located on each bottom bar and pull up. Repeat on other side.
  • Slide one of the top bar closures until connection is exposed and let bars drop. Repeat on other side.
  • Push front and back of crate together like an accordion.
  • Snap together the two side clips.
Washing Instructions:
  • Gently wipe with non-abrasive cloth or sponge to clean all materials.
  • Air or line dry.
  • DO NOT MACHINE WASH OR DRY
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't last a long time I bought this crate a 2 years ago and on average I used it about twice a year. I was going to give it 5 stars but the snap bars broke. When I called customer service about replacement she said we no longer make this crate so you are out of luck. You can buy one on amazon. The crate is great, material is like new. Its just the snap in place bars that need to be replace. It was not the answer I was hoping to hear. If you are going to use this crate only a few times it a great buy. I can't recommend it. And I don't plan on buying replacement since it can't last no longer than 2 years with hardly any use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great features but not washable The collapsable feature of this product is great. Quality of the materials, pretty good. The problem is that materials are they are not breathable or washable. Nature's Miracle should redesign this product to include washable materials, or replacement materials and it would be a 5 star product. If your pet vomits, has diarrhea or other sort of soil say goodbye to your portable crate because it can't really be cleaned. That's the reason why I would not recommend this product. It has built in obsolescence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite cat carrier of all time I have had as many as four cats at a time, and I have tried a number of carriers for them. This one is the best. It has lots of entry points (top, side, and front) which is handy to get a spooked cat inside. There are snaps to keep the zippers from being pushed open by my sneaky cats. The frame is sturdy and doesn’t let the carrier collapse around them. I only have one cat now, and she likes it so much it is her preferred sleeping place. This carrier is 6-8 years old, and still going strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable - dog friendly and convenient We have use our 42 inch crates (x2) for both of our golden retrievers for 3+ years - we travel a lot and they have been a blessing. Recently we had the male go through TPLO surgery - stressful - and while traveling over the thanksgiving holiday while in a strange in environment with other dogs present he tore a hole in the font door screen - I have currently sewn this. For the pst 2 years I have not zipper contained them - just said "go to bed and they would stay there for the night. The crates have served us and the dogs well. If I did need to replace the front screen is that available. Or we have even spoken about buying upgrades if you make larger ones. Best product we have had for our furry family members - these are our 2 nd set of golden pairs and we love your product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is our vet's favorite carrier I've been using this carrier for my two cats for two years now. Our vet loves it because of all the openings, especially the one on the side. It's large enough so she can even do part of the exam through it. This is less stressful for the cats because they can stay in the carrier longer and feel more safe, which makes it easier to do the exam. She always comments about the great carrier we have. I find the top opening very useful for putting a cat into the carrier. Instead of trying to force my cat through the front, I can set him/her down through the top and quickly zip it up. I appreciate all the thoughtful touches such as the velcro to hold up the door flaps, the velcro flap to hold the handles together (this also provides some hand cushioning when carrying it), the zipper fasteners, and the fact that the zippers are "two-way" (this flexibility makes zipping faster if a cat is trying to escape). The only thing missing was a fastener for the zippers on the top, but I bought a small caribiner separately. The carrier has held up fine for two years of use by two cats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great portable crate We have owned one for over 4 years as adjunct to hard crate, which never moves. We have used it to acclimate new pets, traveled in our RV and the occasional guest pet has taken advantage. Never had any problems with mechanisms. Would not use it as permanent crate, but very good supplement.

Is there a warranty for the crate? The front liner has come apart. It's not that old. I don't have the receipt.

Asked by: JAYRZ
There is a warranty of one year, but you do need the receipt. Receipts can often be reprinted by stores or accessed through accounts. Petsmart, Petco, Walmart and online vendors can all provide receipts/invoices. BREX
