reptile heating pad
    #3362165 - 11/15/04 12:30 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

i've recently bought one of these and have been trying to think of a way to apply it some how to work inside a drawer (for stealth reasons) while still being safe. I know there is a way i just haven't thought it all through. Do you guys have any thoughts?

I am a reptile enthusiast, and have used undertank heaters for years. They are thought of as safe, but I have only used them on glass terrariums. I would think that as long as it is the very thin kind that has a sticky film so that you can stick it under something, it would be alright. Make sure you don't have anything touching the under side of it. Put it under your drawer, and you also may want to hook up a rheostat (sp?) to it so that you could adjust the temp. Be very careful though, make sure you follow directions on package. Like I said, i've had good sucess with these in the Reptile hobby, but YMMV.

I suppose reptile lamps wouldnt have a thermostat and the ongoing output of heat would be too much for a little draw, maybey you could set in on timer or something

i was trying to think of something for the design layout, like how could i install it for easy access, and safety, but keep it in a drawer. The timers and rheostats are good ideas :smile:. But what kind of set up would be efficient for using the pad?
