Excellent Product for Price

This cold frame was relatively easy to assemble, took 1 hour by myself. Tip 1 Download the instructions in advance of the delivery and print Tip 2 Pre drill holes for the screws as you assemble each corner Tip 3 The acrylic has protective film on both sides Tip 4 The acrylic glazing blocks are best positioned as the iinstructions not the advertised picture. Tip 5 if possible assemble in the warm of your house and carry outside.

A useful cold frame in need of some better assembly instructions

The cold frame looks as if it will do the job, though isn't high quality. The assembly would have been easier if it had been pre-drilled. The assembly instructions were poor: . They tell you to attach the ends by putting the screws through the wrong pieces. . It is unclear how the window supports are attached. . There are no instructions for putting the hinges on the lid. It is worth looking carefully at the photograph to see how the final product should look.

Alanna Asked:

Is the glass in the Large Cold Frame safe for children?

We Replied:

Dear Alanna Thank you for your question. I contacted the manufacturer regarding your question about the glass in this product and they have confirmed to me that the glass is safe for children as it is made from acrylic rather than real glass.
