Not easy to put together
I struggled to get the clips at the sldes to close and was close to giving up as I didn't want to break the clip and render the carrier useless. Fortunately by turning it upside down and pressing down on the base on either side of the join I was finally able to get them to clip in place.
I really hope it holds up for a few years occasional use as it's a good price. I have 2 other carriers I will use more often so only pull this out when I need to transport all 3 of my cats
