Hello,

I have a 4 x 2 cage with a 2 x 1 third floor. Both floors are sitting on grids for support. I would like to easily move the entire cage for cleaning the carpet when necessary. Has anyone used a specific set of wheels or rollers from Home Depot that will fit nicely under a grid?

Thanks

i'm building a 2X5, and I'm considering attaching a piece of plywood under the bottom using U-shaped nails or staples over the grid wires and attaching casters or wheels to the wood. Hopefully, that made some sense.

My floor grids are bottomless, so I would have to attach a piece of 1 x 4 on each corner to provide a mount for each of the casters.

Sorry for the confusion with my description. I forgot to mention that the 2X5 cage part is going to be on top of cubbies made of more grids to store supplies in. More or less, I'm using the grids for what they were originally designed for and putting a C&C as the second layer instead of more cubbies. It has a full grid bottom, so I can attach it to the piece of plywood.

Maybe you could attach the wheels to a piece of wood large enough to set the whole thing on like a cavy cage skateboard? I don't think you'd be moving it fast enough that it would actually need to be attached.
