Default C&C Cage Help

Hey guys!
So I am a new hedgie owner. I brought home by six week old hedgie on Sunday. I have a C&C cage. She keeps escaping. I have coroplast on the first 6 inches of the wall so I am not sure how she is doing it. Anyone have any advice for me. I am not really sure what to do. At this point she has not hurt herself, but I am worried that the drop from her cage to the floor will hurt her.

Do you have a lid for it? If not I'd advise you get one, also make sure she can't fit through the squares of the cage and that it's assembled correctly!

Since I have coroplast on the first 6 inches of the walls does it matter if she can fit through the squares? I do have a lid, but I didn't the first time she got out. I thought she was getting out from the top, but now with the lid I am not sure.

A six week hedgehog can climb up over 6 inch walls. I had a 7 week old female climb into a waste basket that was almost 12 inches high and Nancy had a just weaned baby escape from a 13 inch tall bin that only had food and water dishes in it and a snuggle sack. How many squares are there to each section of cube? You will have to make the coroplast go to the top of the walls to hopefully prevent her from climbing out.

I have a 2x3 cage. Each grid has 9 squares across and up.

Baby hedgehogs can squeeze through the squares. You need to make the sides go up the full height of the cage.

I will link a video for a woman who used a clear plastic along the inside walls of the cage between the coroplast and cubes to prevent escape. I hope this will help you as coroplast is sometimes a pain in the butt to alter (or maybe I'm just challenged).

As promised: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PKigu1llOKQ

Hope this will give you an idea of what I mean and how to set it up. This would be the easiest solution I think, I absolutely hate cutting and assembling coroplast, it takes me forever! Luckily my Hedgie is lazy and doesn't like to do any kind of extracurricular activity besides running on the wheel!
