HARROD SLOT & LOCK® NATURAL ALUMINIUM STRAWBERRY CAGE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. Can footplates be used for these cages?
No. The footplates are designed for cages 2m high with 25mm diameter tubing. The uprights on this cage are 16mm diameter and due to the weight of the cage they are not necessary.
2. Can I order extra parts for my fruit cage e.g. spare connector
Yes. All component parts - connectors, tubing, netting and pegs - can be purchased sperately from the Optional Extras listed on this page or from our catalogue. If you can't find what you are looking for, please contact our Customer Services Team or call them on 0845 218 5301.
We also stock bracing (see Optional Extras again) which can be used to add rigidity to the structure but is usually recommended for taller cages.
3. If I order a standard cage, but then cut the bars to get exact sizes, does this affect my guarantee?
The aluminium horizontals of these cages are 16mm diameter and can be cut with a hacksaw fairly easily. The aluminium is resistant to corrosion, so as long as the structure is otherwise assembled as per our instructions the warranty is unaffected.
4. Can I swap the standard netting for another type?
Yes you may request alternate netting to what we supply with the cage as standard. Please contact our Customer Services Department or telephone us on 0845 218 5301 for full details of the netting we can supply.
5. Can I order a size that is not advertised on your website?
The components are all listed in the catalogue and online so you can pick and mix to make your own size of structure. Please contact our Customer Services Department or telephone us on 0845 218 5301 for help with this.
