Hanging Rabbit Pens or Cages Part 2: Hooks, Bracing, and Hanging the Cages

Hanging Rabbit Cages or Hutches - Hooks, Bracing, and Hanging the Cages

Now we have the basic frames up - we need to add eye bolts to which we attach the cages via chains and s-hooks. We will also use eye bolts and 1/16" galvanized cable to provide support and help prevent the horizontal 2x4 braces from sagging under the weight of the cages. Turnbuckles are used to adjust the wire tension.

Note the use of small sections of 2x4 blocks as supports under the horizontal 2x4s we will be using as mounting braces for the cages.
