Use the Lift Kit to raise the over­all height of your Caterpillar Tunnel 16 inch­es. Simply screw the addi­tion­al pipe lengths onto the bot­tom of your bows and, voila, your tun­nel is 16″ taller! It’s great for trel­lised crops like toma­toes or cucum­bers. It also makes your out­er beds more acces­si­ble. The kit uses the same rebar, anchor plates, and EZ-Clips that come with our stan­dard kit. It can actu­al­ly be retro­fit­ted on a stand­ing tun­nel as well! 

Note: The 28-ft or 32-ft wide plas­tic must be used with the Lift Kit in order for the plas­tic to reach the ground on both sides. The 28-ft or 32-ft wide plas­tic is now stan­dard on all tun­nels, but if you ordered your tun­nel before March 2018, you will like­ly need to order the wider plas­tic. Also, unless your tun­nel came with (2) 750-ft spools of rope, (100-ft tun­nel) or (1) 750-ft spool (50-ft tun­nel) you will need to pur­chase an addi­tion­al roll to accom­mo­date the extra height. 

Each kit includes self-tap­ping screws and:

  • 50-ft at 5‑ft spac­ing: 22 pieces
  • 50-ft at 4‑ft spac­ing: 26 pieces
  • 100-ft at 5‑ft spac­ing: 42 pieces
  • 100-ft at 4‑ft spac­ing: 52 pieces

Special Note: Correctly iden­ti­fy the gauge of the orig­i­nal tun­nel you pur­chased. Our 14-ft wide tun­nels are 17 AWG and our 16-ft wide tun­nels are 14 AWG. These gauges can­not be crossed over as they are not compatible.

We appreciate the quality product at an affordable price. Everything about the tunnel is so well thought out. The way the greenhouse is fastened to the ground as well as the side lifting mechanism is really easy to use on a daily basis. Thanks again!
