There website also has many testimonials from satisfied customers talking about the high quality of their products. As a seasoned chinchilla owner myself I look for these types of companies when offering my customers products. First and foremost our loyalty is the Chinchilla themselves; they need to have a product that will not only be enjoyable for them but "SAFE."

When it comes to wheels, finding one for a chinchilla is the most difficult. Most common wheels are made of plastic. The problem with plastic is that chinchillas being the rodents that they are love to chew on everything and anything. They will chew on the plastic no matter what, and if a chinchilla swallows a piece of plastic it can cause a blockage. Since these animals do not have a gag reflex, it will end up making them ill, to the point where they can perish. The other problem with common wheels is that they usually have a piece in the center of the wheel that sticks out. They are not bearing based so this piece is what actually is connected to the wheel to have it spin around. This will make a chinchilla arch its back in an abnormal fashion, which will cause long term effects if this is the only wheel ever provided. Think of it this way, what if you were made to run full speed while facing straight up at the sky and arching your back, how uncomfortable would this be for you?
The Chin Spin avoids these downfalls from the common exercise wheel because the product is made from metal and wood, and is built with a bearing that allows the wheel to move with ease, and takes the piece in the middle out. They come in both 11 and 15 inch, and can accommodate any cage.

The following description is taking from the 15" wheel:
"The large-size, 15” Quality Cage Chin Spin™ is the chinchilla-tested exercise wheel -- they love ‘em! Chins need their exercise, but can hurt themselves on standard wire or spoked wheels. This open-wheel design is made of quality wood, dual ball bearings, and coated with a durable, silver-vein powder coated finish. The CS-15 is 15¼" tall, and needs to be mounted so the bottom of the wheel is 2" above the cage floor. It extends 8" from the wall of the cage, and has a 6¼" running surface. Easily, but sturdily, attaches to the side wall of your cage with supplied hardware. Comes with photo-illustrated installation instructions and an extra set of bearings."
