    Question Wheels / casters for C&C Cage stand?

    Has anyone been able to find the wheels/casters that they used to make for the cubes? I am trying to find them and can't seem too. I searched the forum and all the older links to products don't seem to work any longer. Any ideas?

    I am confused. What are wheels and casters? Do you mean an actual wheel so you can make certain parts or the whole thing movable?

    Sorry for the confusion. I mean wheels to make the C&C cage with stand movable so i can clean behind it. They used to make specific ones that attached to the grids. I cant seem to find them. Some of the sites i was looking at also referred to the small wheels as casters.

    Casters are the legs that hold the wheels. You might not be able to get casters specifically, but you might be able to get just a metal frame with wheels on the bottom to sit your cage on top?

    You can find them at lowes maybe even a walmart, the kind with screw holes and all you gotta do is zip tie them to the cage. I remember another post about it

    I will check out that discussion. I plan on heading to Lowe's also. I have tried Bed Bath and Beyond, both locations in my area don't carry the grids anymore and seem limited with a lot of items they carry. I am hoping after the holidays everything reappears. I love that store. Thanks for your help everyone! I'll let you know what i come up with!

    This is one that will work with grids but you have to buy the attachment and the casters (wheels) separately. Have not used them personally and doubt they would work if you use the grid connectors but who knows. Ill look on the other sites I have for wire grid accessories to see if I find anything else. I have TONS of sites i use that have neat baskets and stuff that are for wire grid displays that work great for hay racks etc in piggy cages too!

    Caster Attachment - Wire Grid - Chrome, Casters and Levelers at Carlson JPM Store Fixtures your ultimate retail resource.

    You could try like a metal trolley type thing you would use in an office?

    A caster (or "castor" down here) is a wheel set on a swivel. I've actually just bought some castors to make a new C&C cage moveable. I'm just going to construct a base from grids and zip tie the castors onto the base.

    This is what I used, just zip-tied to the bottom. It works but I wouldn't constantly move it. I plan to make one with a wood base in January.
