Owen Dog Box DIY Kits – Build Your Own Dog Box Kit
The Owen’s aluminum dog boxes already offer a lot of convenience to dog parents, giving them the chance to make various choices with the wide range of products on ground. To then further cater to your needs, Owen’s aluminum dog boxes have now started to ship out special knockdown and ‘do it yourself’ kits that you could just easily assemble by yourself in your own backyard.
Opting for a do it yourself kit would mean that you won’t be paying full price for a regular aluminum dog compartment and you also get the freedom to experiment with your dog carrier. In this do it yourself series, Owen’s aluminum dog boxes have two products with model numbers #55046 and #55048.
The #55046 do-it-yourself it is a double dog carrier which has its overall dimensions set at 46’ x 48’ x 25’ (width by depth by height) and the dog compartment itself would have a dimension of 22’ x 46’ x 23’ upon successful build. Instead of the diamond plate used for construction, you would now need to provide wood to build your dog carrier.
You would also need paint and drywall screws to complement the purchased DIY kits. The #55048 model on the other hand measures an overall dimension of 38’ x 48’ x 25’ and has its dog compartment measured at 18’ x 46’ 23’. Although it looks slightly smaller than the first model, it can also hold two dogs at the same time.
The DIY kit you purchased would in both cases contain similar materials such as one front panel assembly, two side air vents, six 47’ angle plates, a further two 25’ angle plates, a pack of bolts and a set of keys for opening and locking the dog’s compartment. The front panel assembly is an aluminum plate measuring 46’ in width and has a rigid double door panel for keeping your box square and making it secure. The air vents measure 7’ x 10’ like most conventional Owen aluminum boxes you would see on the market and ensures maximum air flow. Both the 47’ and 25’ angle plates are made from heavy duty aluminum diamond plate, providing strength and toughness to your build.
To then construct your pet’s box, you would need tools such as a drill having one-eight inches’ drill bits, a tape measure, a screw driver to drive in the screws, a circular saw to cut your wood and metal components into size and last but not least, tin snips. You would also need materials such as plywood sheets (2-4’ x 8’), flat boards (4-2’ x 2’ x 8’), a box of drywall screws, latex paint of whatever color you desire and a silicon caulk. Note that these tools and materials do not come with the DIY kit.
Armed with the DIY kit and these materials, constructing your dog carrier would surely be one exciting backyard activity for you.
