You can't and don't ever want to put a heater IN a cage for crabs. This little heater sticks to the side of plastic heaters and keeps the temperatures up a little. It's very low wattage, so not very warm, but just enough to maintain a comfortable temp for your crabs.

I personally wouldn't recommend using ANY heating device with plastic. It's just not worth the risk. Though that depends greatly on the type of plastic used among other factors. I use a 10 gallon glass terrarium for my hermit crabs, and I highly suggest you do the same!

I have 4 crabs and heat them with a 40W day bulb and a 40W night bulb. I bought a double bulb hood from petco and, at the appropriate time, simply switch one on and the other bulb off. In my 10 gallon tank with screen lid, the tank is a constant 85%. I also bought a reptifogger to regulate humidity.

You could get an undertank heater pad or a heater emitter or just hang a lamp over the tank.

Yes, it does its job in regards to plastic cages. Difference is, do not leave it as long as plastic will heat faster than glass.
