Instructions are disappointing, too small to really understand how to put together the brace kit. The diagrams are very basic and difficult to follow and put together at the same time, once I had struggled to make up the first bracket it wasn't any easier to do the next 3. I am a DIY enthusiast however, this was frustrating and confusing and took more than 15 minutes to make one. I am not altogether happy to make what I order, I thought they would arrive made up as were the previous 4 I ordered 8 months ago, I guess Harrod have cut their staff duties and now leaving it up to the customer.
Many thanks for leaving a product review, we have checked out the problems you have found with our design team. They have said that these Corner Braces cannot be pre-made up as all parts are fitted to whatever size cage a customer purchases and needs to be fitted at point of assembly of the cage.
It looks stable. I'll see what happens when we get strong winds, as it is very exposed.
I bought two, when repairing two corner connectors, and was so impressed with the increased stability that I added two more. Hopefully I won't have to replace the 3-way connectors again, but next winter will be the big test. Cannot therefore score for product performance. Lessons learnt (1) put the fixing screws for the tube connectors in place before sliding the connectors onto the tubes; (2) use a larger screwdriver for the bolts.
