    Where do the big snake rack makers get their tubs made?

    Hey guys and gals,
    Im needing to get some custom made tubs for my rack. I bought it from someone who had it done by a local guy and it uses a standard Sterilite tub(23Lx16.25Wx6H) which is way to big for my juveniles. I put up a makeshift divider but I feel like I need to get them their own tubs. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to go? I was also wondering where the big dudes like vision and TGR get their tubs made. Any advice would help! Thanks!

    No one will make you custom tubs, tubs unlike racks need to go through molding process, that mean create a mold and than get the plastic and use the mold to create the tubs. No one will do that for 1 customer needing tubs once.

    When people build their own racks or have some made custom they use tubs that already exist either ARS, Freedom Breeder, Vision or Sterilite or Rubbermaid.

    So does companies like Freedom, Vision etc mold their own tubs? I see them coming out with all kinds of different tubs like dividers, water cup holders and stuff like that. Or they can do that because they put in giant orders for thousands of tubs? I see how that makes sense. Most of the tubs would work great its just the 6 inch height that makes it hard to find.

    Thanks for the response!

    They do and usually they are not interchangeable.

    Other companies like AP or CSerpents do not make their own tubs AP racks comes without tubs, C-Serpents comes with tubs made by vision.

    Empty is light. Full is heavy.
