I was using zip ties and my little guys figured out that they can chew through them.

I am using binder rings for our other rat but the way i have the hammocks in the cage with two rats binder clips will not work. at least for one corner of each. I guess I could make a chain but that would be a bit cumbersome.

Any other ideas?
Thanks

Shower hooks! Best things, EVER. You can find them at Wal-Mart, hardware stores, dollar stores... Or, we sell them for 4/$1 (plus the cost of a stamp if how many you order fits into an envelope) if you want to support rescue. ;)

I'd never use anything else at this point!

I use paper clips too ^_^ But I would like some of those shower hook things... the paper clips get all bent and ugly looking ^^;

I just hook them to the cage. Sometimes I have to bend it out a little bit to fit around the wire (I have little paper clips), and sometimes they bend because of the weight of the rats.

I keep seeing hammocks with the rivet-looking things in the corners. Where do you get those and how is it done?

I have to sew loops into the corners of mine... :-(

you're in the states, you should be able to get a craft riveter at joannes or michaels or whatever craft supply stores you have in your part of california... just ask the assistants in the stores.

You can even get rivits at walmart. The best quality ones that I have found though are at REI.

I ended up using some paper clips till I can come up with something a little better.

The shower rings is a great idea I might use those. Right now I have binder rings and I dont like them all too much.

Although we hate it (wally world) we did go there and they have huge paper clips. They are probably about 6" long and work fantastically.
