This Oasis Value Set consists of a genuine Oasis rigid plastic Bell Bottle (8 ounce size) and the Oasis Basic Hold-Guard® designed specifically to fit this bottle accurately and safely.
The Oasis Bell bottle is a very popular favorite. The rigid bottle construction retains water well (the bottle is made of breakage resistant crystal styrene.) The combination of the Bell Bottle’s plastic bottle and cap with the powder-coating of the guard allows for color-coordinated cages and accessories. The drinking tube size on this 8 ounce Bell bottle is correct for hamsters, gerbils, mice, fancy rats, sugar gliders and pygmy hedgehogs.
Benefits & Purposes
The Basic Hold-Guard included in this Value Set can be mounted either by hanging (using the adjustable metal hanging strap) or by securing it to a solid wooden wall or cage side with a screw (using the eyelet that attaches the mounting strap.) Either method gives versatility and a secure mount.
The Basic Hold-Guard protects the water bottle and cap from chewing, biting and gnawing damage. The sturdy metal construction is coated with long-lasting powder coating to both smooth the edges as well offer an attractive cage accessory solution.
Directions for Use
HANGING MOUNT: The Hanger-Guard’s adjustable metal hanging strap swings up into place ...hangs from top edge. The easy to adjust hanger strap fits many sizes of aquarium-type pet environments. Simply bend the strap to fit over the top edge of the aquarium. If the bottle needs to be lowered, re-bend the strap a bit closer to its end. If the bottle needs to be higher, re-bend the strap closer to its attachment to the Hold-Guard. The hanging strap may also be passed through cage wires of metal rabbit or guinea pig cages, or through vent-openings in plastic travel carriers.
SOLID WOOD WALL MOUNT: Leave strap in original folded position when attaching to a solid wall with screw or bolt. Using a wood screw that passes through the eyelet that attaches the metal hanging strap, simply attach the guard to the wooden wall or cage side so that the drinking tube of the mounted bottle is positioned at shoulder height to the pet. This option works well in solid sided rabbit hutches and similar cages or reptile habitats.
