I have used these over the years and was confident in my purchase, but when I opened the packaging, I was quite upset.
These used to be a much higher quality. I literally received a colored chink of rough porous cut Styrofoam. This is a bacterial nightmare! There were holes in the foam itself that would only be able to be cleaned with a small brush. Right out of the box, one of the outter edges was already chipped and I can tell my terrapins are going to shred this with there nails.
This is can only be used temporarily, until I find a better dock.

Unfortunately the suction cups do not stick well and get worse with age. I adapted the old one which I replaced with metal washers as the foam wore away and replaced the suction cups. There are no other options for my 36 year old turtle so had to buy it again. A few small modifications that would not be costly to incorporate would make this 5 stars. This product will last two years.

This product is just the right size for a small turtle. The anchoring system also works very well. The problem is that the surface is too slick for the turtle to get traction to climb up the ramp. The surface seems like it should have some type of coating to make it "not so smooth". Mine came with what looked like the start of some type of coating. I wonder if a step was missed in the manufacturing process. The turtle needs a rougher surface to be able to climb out of the water. Anyway, just be aware that you might need to craft some way to let the turtle get traction on this turtle dock.
very nice/ worked well

So I ordered a turtle dock it says it comes with the bracket but when it came in it only had the suction cups and the dock but no bracket. I contacted someone about the issue and was sent another one free of charge but yet again it’s missing the bracket. Besides the missing bracket everything else has been fine I got fast shipping and the person who responded to my email was very kind and helpful but ended up with another one with the same issue

Just received my product, shipping was really fast and was looking forward to setting it up for my turtle HOWEVER MY PRODUCT DID NOT COME WITH ANY SUCTION CUPS ( the main reason I chose this platform was because of the suction cups). If suction cups aren't included then they should advertise NOT INCLUDED!

I recommend this product my paint turtle loves it and it brings me comfort knowing he has somewhere to rest that is sturdy now for when I can’t be home to watch him
tricky for turtle

my turtle has a hard time getting on it because it moves around too much. i’m going to try putting some rocks under it so it is easier for him. wish it was more stable tho
Turtles love it

Took them about 4 days before they would go on top of it. Loved it underneath for a hiding place. Suction good to a clean glass side and then holds well. After the 4th day they are up the slow grade ramp and live sunning on it. They even come up over the sides now.
