I went by Fred Meyer tonight and found a cool new product in the garden section. It's a Velcro Tree Tie. $5 gets you 18 feet of 2 inch wide velcro which has the hooks on one side and loops on the other. So you can easily wrap it around your cage and secure the lid tight!

Since I started keeping snakes, I've become a big fan of Rubbermaid and Velcro. :-)

I use about a two inch square of extra strength Velcro for each corner of small tanks. BTW what is Fred Meyer??

I sure that would work, but for aquariums with small snakes I find the Velcro to be quick and very inconspicious.

I've found it very effective to make a screen top with velcro sewn all around the edges and the stick the other side of the velcro around the entire perimeter of the outer top edge of the tank. Nothing gets out.

I've lost my grip on bungees too many times and smacked myself in the hand. :-/ Also, you need just the perfect length of cord!

Besides, Velco is cool. :-P

I took in a group of Tokays in a cage like that, and by the time I got part of the lid pulled up, they would be bouncing off the sides in a panic. :-/ It was a lot of work to get it on and off. But I admit, that would even keep lobster roaches in!
