View Full Version : Connecting playhouse and run. (Runaround system?)

I was going to buy the 10inch runaround tube but can't see how I could connect it. I've tried to contact runaround to ask, but haven't had a reply yet...and I really need the connector soon.

River is about 6.5kg at the moment. (and I'm hoping she'll put on a bit more "substance" for winter as she's quite lean under all that fur!)
She's too big for the 6inch tube.

Does anyone else have any ideas about what else to use, or a solution to the runaround tube problem. :wave:

Something like a runaround but to what you want.

Ali, could you get any builders tubing at all from ebay perhaps?

What kind of length are you looking for from Playhouse > Run?

Daniel - handy posts :lol:

Eg, something like this but 10" if you can find it?

Yes, tubing is an option, but I don't know how to attach it to the playhouse or run. (Hence the runaround being so good in theory.)

My wonderful daddy has offered to make me a wooden "tube" out of ply, which would be easier to attach to both ends securely, so if he can make that work it'd be good. :)

River is HUGE! She's still long and lean though, so who knows how big she'll be when she's bulked out. The puppy is only 2.65kg at the moment.:lol::lol:

How's Bruno doing in his retirement? :love::love: I check on LJ when I can.

Bruno is enjoying his retirement and is the soppiest, loveliest lump. He is :love: although I am very biased!

I've seen them set up a few times, don't you just cut out a hole on the run and playhouse (like you'd cut a hole out of a door for a cat flap) and the tubes are designed to be locked into place

How about the mesh tunnel connections , would they be acceptable ? They say even giants can fit down the 6 inc tube and har videos of it , they are happy to send you bits to test too !

Yeah what about the mesh tunnels from runaround ? Also we are making an 8 x 2 x 2 'run' to extend n and ts setup , what about a long thin run to connect ? Bit of a faff to make though x
