Zinger 4500 Aluminum Crate – Now Shipp
We are excited to announce the newest addition to our Zinger lineup:
In the years since we started manufacturing dog crates, one common theme that has become apparent to us is that no standard crate exists to fit the unique shapes and sizes of many of today’s dog breeds.
While the Zinger 4000 Crate (24”W x 28”H x 36”L) will suit most medium to large breed requirements (like the Labrador Retriever), it will however not suit the taller and longer dogs (especially if the crate is to be used for airline travel).
The Zinger 5000 Crate (28”W x 32”H x 40”L) has addressed the “Extra Large” category (Sheppards, Rottweilers and Dobermans) but in many cases the size of this crate is just too large for most dogs or may not fit their owners’ unique needs (i.e. home and vehicle).
With the need for a size between the 4000 and the 5000, we are now proud to introduce the Zinger 4500 series. Measuring 24”W x 30”H x 38”D and weighing in at a mere 38.5 pounds, this newest addition has addressed the needs of those dog breeds that require a taller and longer crate. Having kept the full 24” width, you can still couple 2 these crates side by side in your vehicle while keeping the increased height of 30” and length of 38”. This size has a ton of room on the inside which will accommodate many of the taller, longer dog breeds.
Features of the Zinger 4500 include:
- Aluminum Construction
- Available in both Deluxe and Professional models
- Stainless Steel Hardware and Slam Latches
- Heavy-Duty Barred Door (also Reversible)
- Silver Hammertone Powder Coat Finish
- Light-weight with lots of Ventilation
- Airline Approved (with the addition of our Airline Rails or Travel Package)
On top of all these great features, you can even add to your Zinger Aluminum Dog Crate any accessory that we offer. The Drain-Thru Flooring, Grooming Top and Removable Caster Wheels setup make a great combination for anyone traveling with their pet to shows.
So check out our website and visit our Zinger Crates section for further information. Feel free to even give us a call at 1-800-351-8411 if you have any questions or would like to place your order over the phone.
My trusty assistant Andrew and the Zinger Winger van will be heading to the Lake Ontario HRC hunt test this coming Saturday. We will be bringing a full load of Holding Blinds, Zinger Wingers, E-Collars, Aluminum Crates and other accessories. On display will be our new folding aluminum dog crates so come take a look. If you have a special request let us know in advance and we’ll be sure to bring it. You can call the office toll free at 1-800-351-8411. We should arrive at the grounds around 9am and be there until 5pm. See you down at there.

If you just received your Zinger Aluminium Crate, this post will make the set-up process much easier for you. Setting up the Zinger Aluminium Crate is very easy and can be done in as little as 20 minutes with only person.
All the steps for installing the crate are outlined in your User Manual but if you are a visual learner then check out our set-up instruction video below.
We ship our crates knocked down in order to reduce shipping costs for you. As shown in the video, before setting up, find a clear, flat work space and remove all the panels from the box. All of the panels are labelled with a letter to guide you in the assembly process.
Place the bottom, Panel A, on the ground.
Using the machine screws, washers and locking nuts provided in the assembly kit, assemble the back panel, Panel B, to the bottom. Please note that at this point you should simple finger tighten the hardware.
Position the right side panel, Panel C, and hand tighten screws and nuts.
Repeat the same with the left side, Panel D.
Set the door frame, Panel E, into place, align holes and hand tighten nuts and screws. The door can be swung either left or right so now is the time to change the opening if you wish.
Finally, slide the front edge of the top, Panel F, into the upper door frame and adjust the top toward the back of the crate. The top edges should slide over the sides and the back. Align holes and insert screws and nuts.
At this point, tighten down the screws and nuts. An extra pair of hands here gets the job done faster.
EAch crate comes with a door striker plate to be installed on the door frame. This protects the paint finish and strengthens the door and lock system. Adjust this plate inward for a looser fit.
If your model comes with a back-up locking plate assemble it at the same time as the striker plate. These back up plates with keep the cleverest escape artists from unlocking the crate from inside.
Congratulations to Scott Adams and NAFTCH MJOLNIR BLUEBILL OF ALLANPORT for their win at the 2011 Canadian National Amateur Retriever Championships. I was fortunate enough to be in attendance to watch this great dog run the final series on his way to victory. As a sponsor for this year’s National all of us at Zinger Winger Company would like to tip our hats to the Mountain Valley Retriever Club and their tremendous efforts displayed in putting on this event. The high temperatures all week were nothing short of torturous but the volunteers who put on this event did a great job considering the extreme conditions. The following videos show a sampling of the finalists running the 10th series.
