The brilliant new Zippi Rabbit Tunnel System from Omlet is a great way to connect your rabbit hutch to a rabbit run. Ideal for Guinea Pigs too!
To make it easy we have put together a few basic zippi tunnel kits for you to choose from.
The brilliant new Zippi Rabbit Tunnel System from Omlet is a great way to connect your rabbit hutch to a rabbit run. The modular burrow pipes allow you to add sections at any time to create a natural warren of tunnels for your rabbit to run around. Your bunny will love hopping along the activity tunnels to a rabbit run where they can nibble on fresh grass everyday. You can also easily connect an open playpen so your children can play with, watch and feed their pet bunnies. The burrow tubes are strong, secure and measure a spacious 180mm (7.1in) on the inside, which is large enough for any rabbits including the Continental Giant and Flemish Giant. With the Zippi system there are no limits to the size or shape of tunnel system you can build so let your imagination - and your bunny - run wild!
The most popular use of the Zippi rabbit tunnel system is to connect your existing rabbit hutch (including wooden hutches or Eglu Go rabbit hutches) to a large rabbit run which can be anywhere in your garden. It’s quick and simple to do, all fixings are supplied for you to attach a Zippi connection frame to the side of your rabbit hutch and then clip on lengths of the rabbit tunnel. The frame measures 31cm high by 25cm wide and is designed to fit any make and model of rabbit hutch.
Provide your Bunny with an Active Habitat
The Zippi Tunnel allows your rabbit to have safe and secure access to an exercise space whenever it wants through its very own Zippi burrow system. This is an amazingly convenient way for you to provide your pet with a habitat that promotes an active lifestyle, with the benefit of a more relaxed and healthier rabbit. Discover the amazing difference a Zippy tunnel system makes to you and your rabbit.
The Zippi rabbit tunnels come in 90 cm lengths and are easily joined together using Omlet’s specially designed connectors. You can quickly add and remove sections without any tools using the push button locking mechanism. There are no limits to the size or shape of tunnel system you can build and you can add T-Junctions, Corner Pieces, Look-Outs and Hay Racks. The flexible burrow pipes can run behind a flower bed, along a fence and bend around trees to allow your rabbit to safely access areas of the garden that would otherwise be out of reach. The Zippi tunnel system means you can keep the hutch close to your house (for easy food and water top ups) whilst giving your rabbits the run of the garden with fresh and free grass everyday! Start building your perfect system and discover the amazing difference a Zippi tunnel makes to you and your rabbits.
Having a fully enclosed run that your pet rabbit can access every day for play and exercise is ideal. Zippi has been designed to connect to any type of run including the new range of Zippi Pet Enclosures and Omlet’s Outdoor Pet Runs. By adding a T-Junction to a Zippi tunnel system you can provide access to a rabbit playpen for you and your children to use. Access to this area can be simply controlled with a door in the Zippi Frame which you just open when you want to allow your rabbit to access it.
"Rabbits love to run, hop and jump, so it's important that you provide your pets with enough space to play in every day."
The flexibility of the Zippi tunnels means you can easily move your rabbit’s run around the garden without having to move the hutch itself. This allows the hutch to stay close to the house for convenient access while you simply lift and move the attached Zippi Run to a new location. The connectors are so easy to use that you can continually change the setup and give your rabbit a fun and varied habitat. They are also really strong, durable and will give many years of use.
Maximize the Space Within Your Garden
Whatever size or shape of garden you have you can maximize the space available by using the Zippi tunnel system. Bend around flowerbeds, behind rockeries and over patios to give your rabbit access to areas previously well out of reach. Using Zippi to move a run you could even use your rabbits as an environmentally friendly and fun way to mow your law
The Zippi burrow pipes have been designed with children in mind. Children love watching their bunnies run down the tunnels and pop out to say hello! If your child is confident with their rabbit then they can operate the frame doors and even rearrange the tunnels themselves. It you don’t want your children to be able to undo the connectors then you can completely secure the connectors with the screw locks which come free with every Zippi connector.
"Children love watching their bunnies run down the tunnels and pop out to say hello!"
You can upgrade the Zippi T-section with a dual use Hay Station that doubles as a Look-Out. The Hay Station comes with a water bottle holder and kids can easily fill the container with hay or other fresh vegetable treats. By attaching the base of the Hay Rack to the top you can convert it into a Look-Out. This is a great alternative use and one you and your rabbits will enjoy. Children love waiting by the Look-Out to spot their pet as they explore their Zippi tunnel world!
The Zippi Tunnel system is designed so that it can be easily and securely connected to the run of the Eglu Go Rabbit Hutch. The Zippi Frame can simply be attached directly to the run (all fixings are supplied). You can then connect to any type of run including the new range of Zippi Playpens and Runs and Omlet’s Outdoor Pet Runs, giving your pets even more space to exercise.
"A play-pen is a popular way to allow your children to learn about their pet in a safe and relaxed environment."
A really useful feature of the Zippi rabbit tunnel system is the optional Lock Out Door that can be added to any Zippi Door Frame. It’s a brilliant way to be able to temporarily control your pet’s access into the Zippi tunnel system.
Ideal for Cleaning Time
You can use it to keep your rabbit in the run or playpen whilst you clean out the hutch - or vice versa - or while you change the layout of your Zippi system. It’s important to note that the door should only be used to keep pets within a hutch or run and not within the tunnel itself.
Omlet’s specially designed Zippi support hoops can be used to lift the burrow pipes off the ground. This thoughtful detail will allow the grass under the tunnels to keep growing leaving your lawn in perfect condition. You can also use the strong steel support hoops to steer your rabbit’s activity tunnels around a tight corner or tree.
As with all Omlet products the Zippi tunnel has been designed to be easy to clean. Using the door in the Zippi frame, you can temporarily close the tunnel so your rabbits can’t access it. Then you simply open the connectors to release each section of tunnel. The burrow pipes can be washed out with water and a pet safe disinfectant, drainage and ventilation holes along the length mean you don’t have to worry about drying the pipes.
"Even with a long system, cleaning the Zippi tunnel just takes a few minutes."
The Zippi tunnels are designed to be fully secure and predator proof to ensure your rabbit stays safe and protected during use. The tunnels have a unique locking connector at each end which requires two buttons to be released to open it. In addition each connector can be further secured, if necessary, using the locking screw. If you have a pet dog or cat, your rabbit can safely use the system whilst they are in the garden. The tunnels have been temperature tested and can be used in hot and cold conditions. Each section of activity tunnel has ventilation and drainage holes throughout its entire length. Your rabbits will love using their Zippi tunnels all year round in all weather conditions.
How do I Connect Zippi to a Run?
The Zippi door frame can be connected to any wire mesh run or to any solid surface, for example the wall of a wooden hutch.
Before attaching the Zippi door frame you will need to cut a square hole in the mesh or wood. All of the fittings are included, as are clear and complete instructions. You will receive cover strips to place over the cut edges so that you are left with a very neat finish.

Great product so far still putting it together as area for it not quite ready
Bunnikins is very happy with her new Zippi run & tunnel although she did try & make a break from her Eglu hutch thru a gap between the hutch & the underfloor! Thank you, Fionna & Gordon, for your service; fantastic as always!
I purchased an Eglu hutch with a 2m run about 12 months ago and while it’s great (fantastic even) it’s not the easiest thing to move around, and I wanted my bunnies to have a bit more space. I love love love the zippi concept and it’s perfect for my situation. I live on a hillside with uneven ground and my bunnies dig so with the clip in floor they can still dig and not escape, and with the tunnels I can position the second run wherever there is fresh grass. Appletons customer service is flawless, and delivery was fast and efficient.
By the way we love the zippi system.
