Only a Philip's head screwdriver is needed. Everything is held together with industrial strength Velcro. The bottom is 1 piece that unfolds and has flaps around the edge. The wall unit is 1 piece that opens up and sits on top of the floor piece. The flaps then come up and Velcro to the sides. Then you insert the rails. 2 of the rails go directly through the walls and the other 2 fit between them. This is what frames and steadies the box. Detailed instructions are included with every box.
Please see Breed to Size Recommendations page.
