Hay racks must be designed to allow ample access to hay -- the most important part of a guinea pig's diet. All metal hayracks do carry minimal risks for guinea pigs to get a tooth caught or a head or paw stuck.
Our hay racks are designed to prevent more than 99% of incidents from occurring; however, accidents can happen.
If you want complete safety and still want your guinea pigs to be able to access hay, please just put the hay on the ground. Even cloth hay bags have a specific hole size that could be wrong for a particular guinea pig. No one can guarantee complete safety from all circumstances.
Hay on the ground is actually the BEST alternative, and they love it! They love to run through it, eat it, lay on it and play in it! This allows you to provide LOTS and LOTS of hay!
Another super safe and highly recommended alternative is to re-cycle a paper grocery bag or empty tissue box. This is a fantastic technique if you have hay allergies as well. Loosely roll down the top of a grocery bag to make a large cuff and keep the opening stiff when you place the bag on its side in the cage. Cut a mouse hole in the side of one wall to provide an extra exit when you have multiple pigs. Stuff the bag with yummy grass hay. Lay it in the cage. It's a hidey and hay bin all in one. They'll munch on the paper. It's fine. When it gets yucky from being peed in, roll it up and toss it out. Put in a fresh one!
