Do It Yourself: Do Away with Flimsy Cuttlebone Clips!

A Budgie Place Original

You know those flimsy metal clips that come with the cuttlebones you buy at the pet store? You're supposed to bend them at different points in order to secure the cuttlebone to the cage bars. But for me they never seem to work well. So I came up with a better way!

What You'll Need:


Cuttle Clip Step 1

Cuttle Clip Step 3a
Cuttle Clip Step 3b
Cuttle Clip Step 3c

Cuttle Clip Step 4a
Cuttle Clip Step 4b

Cuttle Clip Step 5a
Cuttle Clip Step 5b

Cuttle Clip Final ResultSimple, easy, durable. Every once in a while, you may want to tighten the zip tie up a little bit as the cuttlebone shrinks in size.
