I bought this also and it is great!!! It has a weighted base so your hams can't knock it over. I'm thrilled with it because I needed it for the playpen. I have the hamster Hide and Seek cubes and they can also be used to hold a water bottle. But the cube can be chewed, where the ceramic one can't. I bought it from Petco after I saw Kiki's post about it.

Thank you for all the additions to this thread! It's great to have a culmination of ideas and I'm sure at least one is doable to anyone struggling with how to have a water bottle in a bin cage as I was.

I actually tried this one out with the stand and a bottle holder with the curved part which fits around the bottle and the two sections on the back (one to go flat against the side of the cage and one thinner one to go between the bars and then fix there after twisting it). I basically forced the two 'sticky up' parts of the stand through the small space between the curved section and the first back section and it worked pretty well, I'll attach a picture! (Sideways again for some reason)

I didn't intend for this to be innovative, but I attached a former cage piece to the inside of my bin with drilled holes and zip ties and attached the water bottle to the cage piece. She can also climb up it but hasn't tried so far. I think cubes you buy in stores like what people use for custom guinea pig cages would work too.

I've been looking for a good idea for a bottle holder as I'm looking to make a bin cage!

This has been really helpful thanks (:

Bit hard to describe as I don't have pictures, but for Nicola's cage I just soldered a big hole through the side of the bin, big enough to snugly fit her waterbottle spout. Since it's a very snug fit, she can't get a grip to chew on it, which is a bonus.

I tried using suction cups to keep it there, but they just kept falling off (they were quite old and well used, though :P) so I made a few smaller holes to the side of the large one and used some wire to keep it upright, as you would with mesh. Hasn't failed me yet.

We use double sided velcro for both of ours.
