Glass Feeder/Waterer 6", holds 2.5 oz
water tube keeps water clean
This is great for my female cockatiel.she has arthritis.so when I make up one months medication in one liter of water,it lasts the whole month.I fill the tube less than half way because she doesn't drink a lot in a day.its not flimsy.I had a hard time getting metal holder on cage bars.just had to bend out and turn hard.my cage has horizontal bars and they're thick.just don't turn to hard,might break

Additional feeder and long lasting.
I put this feeder on the inside and the hook on the outside. If the bars are horizontal or vertical, I can use it, I just twist it around. That's what makes it easier , is to put the water feeder on the inside and the hook on the outside. If your bars are vertical, search around for a horizontal bar (near the bottom or doors), and place a perch there, and it can be used. Mine are horizontal and I just looked at it. I have one vertical bar on each side. I'm sure yours has a horizontal bar in your cage. It's great!

Good for horizontal bars
These are the best water tubes I've found for use on the horizontal bars of my budgies' cage. So many products that purport to work on horizontal bars just don't. These work well, are of good construction, and I like using glass where I can, rather than plastic. At least so far, they have also stood up to the skills of one of my budgies, who somehow manages to figure out how to tilt water tubes to drain all of the water onto the floor of the cage. That is, of course, great fun for the birds but becomes tiresome for mom. Anyway, I like these so much I'm here buying more.

Nice product, a bit difficult
I consider it more appropriate to use these instead of a water bottle with metal tip. The most difficult part is securing the mounting brackets to the cage. I have strong hands but I found it nearly impossible to turn them to fit 1/2 inch w. horizontal bars. Another issue is the tube staying secure in the holder; we have already had two incidents of it falling out, no matter which way the clasps are bent. Sometimes the water will not begin pooling in the cup automatically and I've found it necessary to poke the water so it will release from the tube. These should never be used for feed but they do work well enough for water.
