Add on seed guard?

Has anybody gotten a plastic add on seed guard? The ones that look similar to the metal ones on the nicer cages? I don't like the fabric bloomer style, and I figure once Shelby discovers it's chewy rope type thing, she will destroy it....
I found a couple on eBay, and one on fosters and smith.... Looking for some real users. Shelby makes such a mess with her pellets, at least the dog likes them... LOL. But it get tired if stepping on them in my bedroom where I have her quarantined right now. I even found one in my shoe one day! LOL

Have not tried any seed guards before. Too much of a hassle haha. I just sweep. A LOT.

Therein lies the problem for me, I have carpet everywhere the fids are. I did get a Shark rechargeable handheld last week at B3 with my 20% off coupon. Works great for all the feathers, especially now peeps is molting. The kitchen floor at the edge of the dining room and around the knuckleheads (Turk & Dobby) cage looked like a bird exploded when Dobby was in his molt a few weeks ago. I was sweeping every day... The regular vac is too much of a pain for every day. Plus everybody else is fairly clean with food, now poop with the knuckleheads is another story....
