Anyone know what I need to search to buy some of these?
Driving me bonkers!
Unfortunately these are no longer in production. They're ceiling protectors from Mother Pluckin Bird Toys.
Yes, Mother Pluckin' used to sell them. You can make your own ceiling protectors using a length of pvc pipe bought from a hardware store. You will need a pvc pipe cutter.
If you can't find anyone with backstock you could try checking out fishing tackle sites. Looks very much like a lure.
Or maybe someone here could make them?
That's true. Would be easy to cut from a thick sheet of clear perspex and then drill a hole in each end for hanging. I cut sheet perspex to fit the top of my fridge so stop Kobe from chewing the seal. It is easy to cut with a sharp Stanley knife against a metal ruler. You just lightly go over the same cut multiple times until it comes apart to get a smooth edge. The only difficult part is that the edges are rounded - you could just file them down. I have clear ones from Mother Pluckin'.
I have never seen these.. out of curiosity, how do they work? :0
There are a couple of alternatives like "feathersmart parrot bird ceiling guard protector w/hardware".
I have a few (5) of my own that I make and sell of Clear Acrylic, when they are gone, they are gone, not restocking them.
Clear Acrylic Ceiling Protectors
They stop a bird from climbing up the chain and picking at the ceiling. I tell a lie, the edges aren't rounded - they are cut square:
Yah those are neat too in clear from MPBT, I used to buy wholesale from them several years back and sell them as well as the ones I made up.
PVC pipe is so easy. The tool to cut it is like a giant pair of funky scissors. You just insert pipe, and slowly cut.
I normally don't use open hooks in the birdroom but I use this too transport Lola when he takes off. He is wild and won't step up and bites the living daylights out of me if I grab him. (granted I would too)
PVC and two end caps. I don't use any glue since I have littles and the caps are pretty snug.
@Fuzzy Ahhh I see, thank you!
