To be on the safe side, I would find a way to seal the gaps around the gutter pieces where they go through the floor/ceiling.

The space around the tube next to the upstairs cage would be the first thing my Sassy would head toward if she were playing out of the cage.

Sassy is my hazard finder. She once went under a pocket door, not into the other room, but through a metal bracket under the door that measures 3/4 inch high by 1 1/2 inch wide. She was inside the wall behind the pocket door. I was able to coax her back out the way she went in (lots of mealworms) but I was fully prepared to bash a hole through the drywall if necessary to get her out of the wall.

I like the idea of a solid large pipe with a fleece vine. It' sounds very safe and would be easy to clean.

I definitely checked that hole out and agree that somebody would try to squirm down there. We are going to seal it up. I already have had visions
of Meeko being brave and trying to get thru there.
I told my ex husband about it and he was like NO WAY could they, but I am with you and say we should close it up, especially cause the gliders play in my room supervised..... but it only takes one second, and I got a glider running around in my ceiling!

are you talking about the hardware pipe running across the room or the gutter pipe?

I will admit the whole thing makes me nervous. I am monitoring everything
closely and inspecting everything every day.
So far, there is not much action in the tubes, but I do fear a time when the gliders get BORED and maybe chew thru the hardware. They have showed no interest so far, and I never thought they would chew thru the hardware till
you guys put the idea into my head. But by that time I had opted not to use
the metal hardware because of what I read on the web, and the noise of the gliders climbing it, so I was kind of stuck on my options.
I will be be very upset out if I wake up one morning and I find a hole someplace with 2 escaped gliders. frown Either way, if they chew thru the hardware, I will be forced to put them back into the smaller cage into the kitchen and take the whole thing down.
