- 2 wooden frames, each approx. 60 x 60 cm
- 1 wooden frame approx. 60 x 100 cm
- 2 pieces of wire lattice, each approx. 60 x 60 cm
- 1 piece of wire lattice approx. 60 x 100 cm
- 8 block magnets Q-30-10-05-N
- Adhesive UHU MAX REPAIR
- 2 steel pipes, each approx. 50 cm long, diameter 10 mm
- Connector plates
AssemblyFirst, I had to mill a 10 mm deep notch in every corner of the square frame (60 x 60 cm). I did this with a 5 mm milling cutter. Then, I attached the wire lattice on the one side of all three wooden frames. At last, I used your adhesive UHU MAX REPAIR to glue two block magnets into the notches.
I screwed small connector plates on the cabinet in which the rabbit pen is located.
Now, I can connect the three wooden frames through magnetic force. The side pieces on the left and right adhere on the one side to the connector plates and on the other side to the steel pipes of the front side (see picture below). The advantage of this construction is that I can make the connection in various angles due to the radius of the pipe. The connection doesn't break even when you move the annex a little bit.
Note from the supermagnete Instead of the counter-sunk block magnets and the connector plates, you could also use screw-on magnets and fitting counterparts (see below).
