Has anyone every converted a guillotine style cage door to one that opens? I can do it pretty easily with my current cage, my only concern is how to properly secure it to keep it closed. My birds aren't escape artists, but I would like something more than a clothes peg holding their door closed.

Tiny stainless steel quick links work well for shutting doors! :D That's great that you were able to convert them, well done ;)

We'd love to see pics if you have them!

Hmmm, not quite sure what you have in mind but I have a set of these:

...that I use to clip veggies and to clip doors open. The orange ends can easily be removed and they still work fine, so if you have a black cage then they might look less obtrusive than a normal clothes peg.
You could also secure it with a steel quick link (hanging toy fastener), but it would take a bit longer fastening/unfastening the screw.
I'm sure there must be a perfect little thing to do the job somewhere - maybe have a look around a large DIY store, just remember about safe/unsafe metals.
