Use Instructions: 1. Remove the Repti Heat Cable from package and inspect for any damage to the cable or plug. If any damage is noticed, return the product to place of purchase. This product can be used inside or outside of terrariums.NOTE: The first 6’ of cable from the plug end is not heated to allow only the heated portion to be used in or on the terrarium. DO NOT allow the cable to cross itself as overheating could occur. Always maintain the minimum safe distance of 1 ¼” (3cm) between loops or runs of cable to avoid overheating and possible fire!2. Use a thermometer to monitor the temperature inside the terrarium. Be sure that the temperature is within the appropriate range for your species. Zoo Med’s ReptiTemp® Digital Infrared Thermometer (Item RT-1) is a good tool for measuring temperatures in different locations throughout the terrarium.3. If ambient temperatures outside the terrarium reach 80° F (26 C) or higher, then the heat cable should be used with an appropriate thermostat (like Zoo Med’s Hygrotherm (Item HT-10) or ReptiTemp 500R Thermostat (Item RT-500R).
