How secure is the handle to carry? I have visions of it opening as I carry it and the cat running away.
Answer by ChewyOct 27, 2017
This product has a wire mesh top door that is securely locked with spring-loaded latches.

Do the larger carriers come with extra wing nuts and bolts, in case some are lost?
Answer by ChewyMar 27, 2019
Both the 19 inch and 24 inch kennels come with extra wing nuts and bolts.

I want to be sure how the top connects to the bottom. The photo shows wing nuts and bolts but the instructions say there are 7 snap latches and you should check them every time you use the carrier. I won't buy a carrier that uses latches.
Answer by ChewyMar 09, 2020
This kennel is held together using bolts and wing nuts. Insert the bolts from the underside of the rim, through the holes, and secure the bolts by screwing them into the wing nuts on the top side. Tighten by hand only and check before each use to make sure they are fully tightened and secure.

How does the latch for the top door work? Is it two separate rods that slide into holes with angled ends that you squeeze together to retract the ends from the holes, or something else?
Answer by ChewyJun 26, 2020
Similar to the front door of this kennel, the latch will be squeezed to bring the mechanism back in order to open the door. Feel free to see the attached image for reference.

Very Disappointed

I specifically chose this kennel because of the top-loading door. When I opened the box, the kennel was not wrapped in any way, and the "roof" had black marks in the plastic, making it look dirty. I eventually decided not to return it for that reason but was disappointed to get something that looked used. Next problem is that the top-loading lid does not stay open. Despite what is shown in the photo of the product online. There is no way to handle the cat and a lid that falls closed at the same time. Next, the first time I tried to pick up the kennel, the top-loading lid would not stay securely closed. One end of the lid would not latch. And lastly, the technician at the vet commented that the handle seemed off balance causing the kennel to tilt to one side when carrying the cat. I might just donate this kennel to a cat rescue and continue to use my really, really old one.

Excellent carrier for larger cats!

Like the title says, this is an excellent carrier for large cats like mine (16lbs). The colors look excellent, as I’ve already gotten a few compliments over it at the vets office. The materials are high quality, and the top load function is a great feature. Highly recommended! Oh, and if you’re wondering about the mat, it’s the Frisco Swirl Dog Crate Mat 18 (Chewy sells it). It has 2.25” of memory foam and is very soft. Plus the dimensions are 18x12, so it fits perfect in this crates’ 19x12 base.

Check that your door shuts properly!

This is my second carrier of this brand. The first one was smaller, and was perfect. This one, the door would not shut correctly. Had to push it to get the lock peg into the hole up top. Looked at the lid closely, and realized there was too much plastic surrounding the hole. It was preventing the door from shutting easily. I snipped off the excess plastic with a toenail clipper. Works fine now. Please check your locks before you place your pet inside.

Works for reluctant cat

I have a 15-lb muscly tomcat (ex-tomcat, I guess), who is a pretty mellow guy except for getting him into a carrier, when he turns into Taz. The top-load door came in handy, although I wish it would stay open instead of flopping shut. I had to bungee the handle around the pedestal of my half-bath sink, then undo it quickly once I got him in. The forearm-length animal handling gloves I had also were useful, so I could handle him firmly.

Poor Quality but

The construction is so-so as the holes where the screws go into are malformed and I had difficulty putting it together. One of the screws had to be placed upside down in the end. It's ugly, but it works. It's roomy for my girls (they are 9lb and 10lb), but it would be a good size for a larger male cat.

Miss Kitty loves it and so do I

Very easy to assemble. Top and front doors secure nicely. My baby is 10 to 12 lbs (big girl not fat) and this carrier was the perfect size. She has room to turn around and lay out fully. She takes naps and will just hang out inside. 4 PAWS

Nice Carrier

We have a hard time loading one Kitty into a front door carrier. We looker for a better solution and this was it. We like the screw together style as it is much stronger than other designs. It will disassemble easily for cleaning. The front door is fine for our other boy and they can walk out without assistance.

Easy set up and sturdy

The door latches can be a little hard to press open/closed if you have weaker hands or limited hand mobility, but other than that it's great! Very easy to clean and fits the midwest homes carrier bed perfectly. My 15 lb cat was very comfortable on our journey!

Great buy, at a great Price!

Fast delivery, well packaged, easy to put together. Once we got it put together one of my cats had to run inside and make sure it was kitty approved! Easily fits my 14 pound cat and he still has room to move around!

Love it

Needed a cat carrier with a top opening. Heavy duty and well made. Put it in the living room so they can go in and get used to it.
