Customer Review

Reviewed in Canada on June 26, 2018
Bought this wheel for my hamster and the wheel is quieter than other ones I've owned. But like other reviewers have mentioned, there are gaps along the inside of the wheel (4 in total) where my hamster runs. Before buying the wheel, I had no idea how large the actual gaps were, but after receiving the wheel I've noticed that the gaps look large enough for my hamster's toes to catch on (I've put tape over the gaps to prevent this, as another reviewer suggested). There were also three small prickly pieces of plastic that stuck up on the inside of the wheel that I sanded down. Considering the price and cons of this wheel, I would not recommend it unless you keep your pet's living area close to your bedroom.
Update: My hamster peed in the wheel so I washed it, and washing it has rendered it no longer silent. It now squeaks. I guess the silencing mechanism isn't waterproof. Would no recommend.
