About the connector:
about how to attack the pvc pipe with the base, I used the connector like this below, but so sorry , it is not avaiable for sale anymore, maybe you can take the pipe tube as instead which I find from amazon here:http://amzn.to/2aC8uav
Attach your kitty toys where you want them and cover the whole thing in catnip. We cut the black mat with a pair of shears. Once you got down to the base, it was not very thick and pretty easy to cut. For assembly, please refer to the picture. We found that we could cover most of the pieces with fabric beforehand and that helped greatly. It will take two people to wrap the sisal rope around the posts as one person needs to be able to staple while the other person holds the jute tight.
