PRICE IS PER FOOT
From the guys at THG comes the latest in heat tape technology. This reptile heat tape is ideal for all snake racks or reptile cages. THG Heat Tape for reptiles operates at various watts per foot depending on the size you purchase and requires the use of rheostat or thermostat. We can cut the heat tape to fit any length rack or tank set up.
You will need to purchase a THG wire and clip set which we can install for you. The connection charge is $0.99 per connection, but we will connect it for free if you buy $100.00 or more of heating tape. You can connect it yourself if you have a hole punch and a crimper or you can go old school and solder the connections to the tape (please make sure you know what you are doing, we dont want you to burn your house down). Once connected heat tape can not be returned.
Place a mark on the copper strip of the heat tape about 1/4 of an inch in from the end.
Punch a hole through the copper strip where you have marked it. A regular old paper hole punch will work just fine.
Insert the eyelet BETWEEN the the plastic layers. It is important not to go on top of or underneath but actually get inside the and between the laminate.
Once inside line up the eyelet with the punched out hole and place the longer end of the rivet through the tape and eyelet.
Next, connect the smaller part of the rivet with the other end of the rivet.
Using a special crimping tool or a good pair of vice grips, crimp the rivet together completely. The rivet should not move at all if this is done properly.
Use the provided insulation pieces to sandwich the connection on both sides
Use electrical tape to cover the ends of the heat tape and you are done.
