Frequently Asked Questions

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the Vision product line of racks, cages, tubs, bowls and hides. If you have questions that we have not answered here, you can contact our customer support team.

How much assembly is required for a breeding rack (Versa-Rack)?

A Versa-Rack can be assembled by one or two people quickly and easily. The only tool needed is a small wrench to tighten the tightening bolts. You can find complete written instructions and a video tutorial on our Assembly Instructions page.

Are heat cables included with a snake-breeding rack (Versa-Rack)?

One or two 52-foot heat cables are included with every Versa-Rack complete package, enough to supply each shelf with heat under one end of the tub. Additional heat cables are available for purchase.

Can I use plastic bins I buy at a discount store on a breeding rack?

The Versa-Rack Sterilite® series of breeding racks are designed to fit some of the most common Sterilite® plastic bins sold through many discount retailers. Vision Tubs are stronger and more durable than Sterilite® bins.

Should the flat side of the plastic shelves face up or down on my breeding rack?

For reptile racks, the flat side of the shelf should face down. This creates a smooth surface and tight seal with the top of the tub. The other side of the shelf with the heat cable clips should face up.

For rodent racks the flat side of the shelf should face up. The heat cable clips are not needed for rodent racks and this helps make the racks easier to keep clean.

Will the bottom feet of any cage fit the top grooves of any other cage?

No. The Vision Cages are designed to stack on top of each other, but the wide variety of shapes and sizes available make it impossible for all cages to fit together. The closer the cages are in size, the more likely that they will stack together. If you are looking for a new cage to fit on top of another, ask a customer service representative if they will fit together before making your purchase.

How can I seal the lip of my Vision Cage?

Vision Products enclosures are incredibly customizable! If you want to seal the inside lip of a cage, here’s one way to do it:

  1. Spray an insulating foam sealant
  2. Trim down the foam
    —easy as that!
