It is quick and simple to do, all screws and bolts are supplied for you to attach a Zippi connection frame to the side of your hutch and then clip on lengths of the Zippi tunnel.

Connect to Multiple Playpens or Enclosures
Providing your guinea pig with a fully enclosed run that they can access every day for play and exercise is ideal. Zippi has been designed to connect to any type of enclosure including Omlet’s Outdoor Pet Runs. By adding a T-Junction to a Zippi tube system you can provide access to a guinea pig playpen for you and your children to use. Your pet's access to this area can be simply controlled with a door in the Zippi Frame which you just open when you want to allow your guinea pig to access it.
Move the Run - not the Hutch
You can easily move your guinea pig’s enclosure around the backyard without having to move the hutch itself thanks to the flexibility of the Zippi tunnels. This allows the hutch to stay close to the house for convenient access while you simply lift and move the attached Zippi Run to a new location. You can continually change the setup of the tubes as the connectors are so easy to use and give your guinea pig a fun and varied habitat. They are also really strong, durable and will last for many years.
Maximize the Space Within Your Backyard
Whatever size or shape of backyard you have you can maximize the space available by using the Zippi tunnel system. Bend around flower beds, behind rock gardens and over patios to give your guinea pig access to areas previously well out of reach. Using Zippi to move a run. You could even use your pets as an environmentally friendly and fun way to mow your lawn!
Both Guinea Pigs and Children Love It!
Children of all ages love watching their guinea pigs run down the Zippi burrow pipes and pop out to say hello! The whole product has been designed with young ones in mind and if they are confident enough with their pet then they can operate the frame doors and even rearrange the tunnels themselves. It you do not want your children to be able to undo the connectors then you can completely secure the connectors with the screw locks which come free with every Zippi connector.
Add a Hay Station or Lookout
You can upgrade your Zippi T-section with a dual use Hay Station that doubles as a Look-Out tower. The Hay Station comes with a water bottle holder and kids can easily fill the container with hay or other fresh vegetable treats. By attaching the base of the Hay Rack to the top you can convert it into a Look-Out. This is a great alternative use and one you and your guinea pigs will enjoy. Children love waiting by the Look-Out to spot their pet as they explore their Zippi tunnel world!
Connect Your Eglu Go Hutch To A Larger Enclosure
The Zippi Tunnel system is designed so that it can be easily and securely connected to the enclosure of the Eglu Go Guinea Pig Hutch. The Zippi Frame can simply be attached directly to the run (all attachments are supplied). You can then connect to any type of run including Omlet’s Outdoor Pet Runs, giving your pets even more space to exercise.
Optional Lock Out Door
A really useful feature of the Zippi guinea pig tube system is the optional Lock Out Door that can be added to any Zippi Door Frame. It is a clever way to be able to temporarily control your pet’s access into the Zippi tunnel system.
Ideal for Cleaning Time
You can use it to keep your guinea pig in the run or playpen while you clean out the hutch - or vice versa - or while you change the layout of your Zippi system. It is important to note that the door should only be used to keep pets within a hutch or enclosure and not within the tunnel itself.
Raises Up From Your Lawn
The Zippi Guinea Pig Tunnel System can be lifted from the ground thanks to Omlet’s specially designed Zippi support hoops. This thoughtful detail will raise the tube up 3.5in off the ground allowing the grass under the tunnels to keep growing leaving your lawn in perfect condition. You can also use the strong steel support hoops to steer your guinea pig’s activity tunnels around a tight corner or tree.
Easy To Clean
As with all Omlet products, the Zippi tunnel has been designed to be easy to clean. Using the door in the Zippi frame, you can temporarily close the tube so your guinea pigs cannot access it. Then you simply open the connectors to release each section of tunnel. The burrow pipes can be washed out with water and a pet safe disinfectant, drainage and ventilation holes along the length mean you do not have to worry about drying the pipes.
"Even with a long system, cleaning the Zippi tunnel just takes a few minutes."
Safety every day of the year
The Zippi tunnels are designed to ensure your guinea pigs stays safe and protected when exploring.
The tunnels have a unique locking connector at each end which requires two buttons to be released to open it. In addition each connector can be further secured, if necessary, using the locking screw.
The tunnels have been temperature tested and can be used in hot and cold conditions, and each section of activity tunnel has ventilation and drainage holes throughout its entire length.
We recommend closing off the tunnels at night to keep your guinea pigs safe in their hutch.
How do I Connect Zippi to an Enclosure?
