Connect Your Hutch To A Larger Enclosure
The most popular use of the Zippi bunny tunnel system is to connect your existing rabbit hutch (including wooden hutches or Eglu Go rabbit hutches) to a large bunny enclosure which can be anywhere in your backyard. It is quick and simple to do, all extras are supplied for you to attach a Zippi connection frame to the side of your rabbit hutch and then clip on lengths of the bunny tunnel. The frame measures 12.2in high by 9.8in wide and is designed to fit any make and model of rabbit hutch.
Provide your Bunny with an Active Habitat
The Zippi Tunnel allows your bunny to have safe and secure access to an exercise space whenever it wants through its very own Zippi burrow system. This is an amazingly convenient way for you to provide your pet with a habitat that promotes an active lifestyle, with the benefit of a more relaxed and healthier rabbit. Discover the amazing difference a Zippy tunnel system makes for you and your rabbit.
Each tunnel section measures 35.4in in length and has an inner diameter of 7.1in
Build Your Dream Tunnel System
The Zippi bunny tunnels come in 35.4in lengths and are easily joined together using Omlet’s specially designed connectors. You can quickly add and remove sections without any tools using the push button locking mechanism. There are no limits to the size or shape of the tunnel system you can build and you can add T-Junctions, Corner Pieces, Look-Outs, and Hay Racks. The flexible burrow pipes can run behind a flower bed, along a fence, and bend around trees to allow your bunny to safely access areas of the backyard that would otherwise be out of reach. The Zippi tunnel system means you can keep the hutch close to your house (for easy food and water top offs) while giving your rabbits the run of the backyard with fresh and free grass everyday! Start building your perfect system and discover the amazing difference a Zippi tunnel makes for you and your rabbits.
Connect to Multiple Playpens or Enclosures
One of the main benefits with the Zippi Tunnels is that you can give your bunnies access to one or more runs that they can hop into whenever they want. Zippi has been designed to connect to any type of run, including the Zippi Rabbit Enclosures and Omlet’s Outdoor Rabbit Run. By adding corners and T-Junctions you can also lead your bunnies to a Zippi Playpen where you and your children can spend time with your pets. Access to these areas can be simply controlled with a door in the Zippi Frame which you can open and close at different times of the day.
"Rabbits love to run, hop, and jump, so it is important that you provide your pets with enough space to play in every day."
Move the Enclosure - not the Hutch
The flexibility of the Zippi tunnels means you can easily move your bunny's enclosure around the backyard without having to move the hutch itself. 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. The connectors are so easy to use that you can continually change the setup and give your rabbit a fun and varied habitat. They are also really strong, durable and will last throughout the 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 flowerbeds, behind rock gardens, and over patios to give your bunny access to areas previously well out of reach. Using Zippi to move a run you could even use your rabbits as an environmentally friendly and fun way to mow your lawn!
Your Children And Bunnies Will Love It!
The Zippi burrow pipes have been designed with children in mind. Children love watching their bunnies run down the tunnels and pop out to say hello! If your child is confident with their rabbit 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.
"Children love watching their bunnies run down the tunnels and pop out to say hello!"
Add a Hay Station or Lookout
You can upgrade the Zippi T-section with a dual use Hay Station that doubles as a Look-Out. 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 bunnies 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 Run
The Zippi Tunnel system is designed so that it can be easily and securely connected to the run of the Eglu Go Rabbit Hutch. The Zippi Frame can simply be attached directly to the run (all attachments are supplied). You can then connect to any type of enclosure including the new range of Zippi Playpens and Runs and Omlet’s Outdoor Pet Runs, giving your pets even more space to exercise.
"A play-pen is a popular way to allow your children to learn about their pet in a safe and relaxed environment."
Optional Lock Out Door
A really useful feature of the Zippi bunny tunnel 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 bunny 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
Omlet’s specially designed Zippi support hoops can be used to lift the burrow pipes by approximately 3.5in off the ground. This thoughtful detail will allow 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 bunny'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 tunnel so your bunnies cannot access it. Then you simply open the connectors to release each section of the 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 rabbit 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 rabbits safe in their hutch.
How do I Connect Zippi to a Run?
The Zippi door frame can be connected to any wire mesh fencing or to any solid surface, for example the wall of a wooden hutch.
Before attaching the Zippi door frame you will need to cut a square hole in the mesh or wood. All of the attachments are included, as are clear and complete instructions. You will receive cover strips to place over the cut edges so that you are left with a very neat finish.
