All metal hay racks have some very small degree of risk of getting a tooth caught or a head or paw stuck. Hay racks must be designed to allow ample access to hay -- the most important part of a guinea pig's diet.
Our hay racks are designed to safe for 99+% of the cavies and situations out there. 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 by far and away the BEST alternative! They love it! They love to run through it, eat it, lay in it, 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 grocery bag. This is a fantastic technique if you have hay allergies as well. Loosely roll down the top of a grocery bag to make a big cuff to keep the opening stiff when you lay the bag on it's big 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!
