The 7007 Pk5 comes, you guessed it, in a pack of five (5) but is also available in pack sizes (10) and (15) This connector forms a half circle at either end, with one long uninterrupted side, and the opposite side having the opening, which quickly screws open and closed.

It is 2.5" (63.5mm) in length, 1.5" (38.1mm) in width, and has a 5mm thickness. Each quick link weighs .8 Oz. (22.6g).

Stainless steel is the preferred material for bird safe cages, metal toys, and dishes because it is non-porous and won't promote bacterial growth. It's also very strong, as we've already mentioned. Made in a very similar fashion to the 7007 Pk5 Nickel Plated 2.5 Inch Wide Mouth Toy Quick Link, the 7004 Pk3 looks sort of like a circle that you squished together on two sides, into an oblong shape. It has two (2) half-circle shaped ends with one long uninterrupted side, and the other long side having the screw open connector.

In addition, it's great for hanging treat holders and other bird paraphernalia quickly and easily. When pulled by your companion bird, it's bound to make some noise, which your pal will also find pleasing. Heck, they may. like the connector as much as they like what you hang with it!
The 7010 Nickel Plated 1 3/8 Inch Pear Toy Quick Link offered by M&M Union Bird Toys is a great, all-purpose connector. Where the prior two (2) entries were great for adding multiple items vertically, the 7010 Pear Toy Quick Link is excellent for adding multiple items horizontally. Its pear shape means that it can hang from the top of the cage nicely, and will afford plenty of space at the bottom to add wider items, or multiple thinner items in a horizontal hanging fashion.
Conversely, the large end of the connector can go at the top, hanging from inside the cage, with the small end toward the toy. In this way, the toy may swing about more, offering more excitement for your companion bird. However you choose to hang it, the 7010 Nickel Plated Pear Toy Quick Link is an excellent connector to keep around. It can be used to replace a broken connector on an existing toy, or to create your own new and unique toy options.
The 7010 Nickel Plated Pear Toy Quick Link is .66" (17mm) wide at the larger end. The long uninterrupted side is 1.39" (35.5mm) in length and the opening on the opposite side is .2" (5.2mm) wide. This quick link connector has a 2.5mm thickness. These connectors screw open and closed easily for quick hanging of items in your pet's cage or aviary. These connectors come in packs of 10, 15, or 20.
The 7001 Pk3 Stainless Steel Toy Quick Link is a premium pear shaped quick link connector. Stainless steel is preferred around pets, particularly birds, because it is safe, non-toxic, nearly impervious to damage, and its non-porous surface won't hold water, and therefore won't promote bacterial growth.
These quick link connectors are made from 304 grade stainless steel. They are 1.5" (38.1mm) long, .71" (18mm) wide, and are 2.6mm thick. Being pear shaped, they offer a couple of different ways that the connector can be used. It can hang with the narrow end up, and the wide end down. This will allow for more toys to dangle from the connector, and maybe some more oddly shaped toys such as sola or vine balls. It can also hang with the narrow end down toward the toy or toys. This may allow the toy to swing more freely, which can be extra exciting for your companion bird. It's also bound to be at least a little bit noisy, for those birds who are into that kind of thing.
All of the connectors mentioned above are 100% bird safe and non-toxic. These connectors aren't just for birds either. Often, other pets such as sugar gliders, guinea pigs, and other animals that live in a cage will enjoy playing with toys.
Remember, any companion animal that lives in a cage will benefit from enrichment, and should have ample opportunity to perform in captivity the same types of behaviors they would exhibit in the wild. This may be foraging, nesting, digging, and many other types of behavior.
