It assembles really fast using 6 plastic fasteners. It is really nice and modern looking. This makes a wonderful decorative crate for dogs who are WELL crate trained. Wouldn't recommend for dogs that try to destroy their crate. The only thing I didn't like about this crate was that there is no stopper for the door. It swings all the way inside the crate. I added a little wooden stopper myself, no biggie.
