I want to commend you on a quality product. We have utilized the cage since April (it is October 7th as I write this). It has handled the weather just fine here in the Louisville, KY area. We did leave the vertical legs loose and on a couple of occasions my wife and oldest son (11) and I lowered one side of the cage when some severe thunderstorms were forecast for the next day.
I am very pleased with the decision to purchase your cage system and would recommend it to anyone looking for a economical, easy to set up, seasonal cage.
Thanks again and best wishes.
