    I used this wonderful thread to build my click clack yesterday, I put the photo frame (small) on top, I put fly wire and then the glass went back on, as I'm in perth, its too cold for it in winter, but in summer I will just lift the glass and let the air flow :) Cheers!!

    If your talking about your thermostat i find it best smack in the middle of one of the click clacks sides.

    Hope this helps

    Dunno if this helps, but when i did my babies click clack, to help stop the dowel moving, I used the soldering iron to make a hole just a bit smaller than the dowel itself, and as soon as the plastic was melting i pushed the dowel through. Once the plastic dried it was moulded tight to the dowel. i made sure i smoothed any sharp bits, and for good measure i hot glue gunned the join aswell. but if u get the plastic to mould to the dowel good, its really strong. (hatchie wise anyway). Thanx for this thread cos it only cost me like $15 to do and my baby loves his new enclosure! Awesome idea Em!
