Grreat Choice® Dog Crate
Big and strong!
This is a huge crate. It definitely helps to have two people put it together. Quite a bit of floor space is needed, too, to spread out the side panels for connecting. When we first opened the box, we also thought all the pieces were forever tangled, but we noticed that the panels were being held together by the drop pins used to assemble the whole crate. Once we pulled those pins out, the pieces fell apart. The directions could be a little clearer, too. When hanging the back panel, we didn't know if the top hooks went over the top from the outside or were supposed to hook under from the inside. It seemed to fit better and easier on the outside. Our two 50-lb dogs sleep in there, a husky mix and a lab mix. They seem to love it, and they love being together. We were also pleased with the plastic pan - it seems quieter than the pans we've had before. That, plus the heavy gauge of the wires, is why we're giving it 5 stars. 4.5 would be more accurate, in our opinion.

All of the sections were hooked together but had to be separated before the crate could be assembled. To get them apart it was necessary to use pliers and bend the hooks. This took two people almost an hour. This item should be packed so each piece is separate and cannot become entangled during shipping. If we had known how difficult it was going to be, we would never have purchased this item. Once we got everything free, we were able to assemble according to the instructions without too much trouble. It appears to be fairly sturdy although the hooks may be weaker due to having been bent.

Good quality, pain to put together
Can't beat the price! Had to bend some of the parts back, and it's drop pin style, so you will need more than one person. Seems like quality stuff, I had a hard time rebending the wire so it's nice and thick.
