Assembly InstructionsThe kennel consists of three parts: plastic top section, plastic bottom section, steel door.Separate two halves and place top half on bottom half.Hold top section as shown and place metal door in opening so ends of hinge and latch rods fit in holes. Lower top section so hinge and latch rod fit into holes.Secure the two halves together with the seven gray snap latches on the top half. It is advisable to check the latches periodically to ensure the halves remain secure especially if the kennel receives heavy use.CautionsPetco kennels are engineered to hold pets safely and securely under normal use for many years of service. Used properly, Petco kennels are an invaluable tool for travel safety and training. Please observe the following cautions and guidelines:When pet will travel by air, check with the airline at least two weeks in advance for their specific rules and requirements.Do not use Petco kennels in place of outdoor runs or long term holding cages. Young animals should be allowed out of their kennel well before the limits of their bladder and bowel control will tolerate. Many adult animals will tolerate kenneling during a normal workday, but a midday visit for airing and socializing with the animal is strongly encouraged.To avoid strangulation, never leave a pet unattended with a choker collar on, including inside a kennel.Do not allow children to play in, on, or around the kennel. Keep kennel door closed around children to eliminate the hazard of protruding hinge and latch pins.Periodically inspect the plastic shell for cracks, especially after exposing the kennel to severe shocks, changes in temperature, or other harsh or challenging conditions.Check and tighten latches and screws periodically, especially before moving your animal in the kennel.Discourage aggressive behavior in the kennel. Biting, chewing, licking, ramming, or pawing at either the plastic shell or metal wire parts may result in injury to the pet or damage to the kennel. These are excluded under the product's warranty.Exercise caution when closing and opening the kennel door to avoid catching pet's paws, tail, or snout in mechanism.Avoid heat injury or death. Never leave pets in a closed car on a hot day or in direct sun. Car windows have a greenhouse effect; temperatures can rise to well over 100 degrees (F) inside a closed car within minutes. Similarly, never leave a pet unattended in its kennel in direct sunlight.Avoid stacking multiple kennels with pets enclosed.
