Default bucket wheel issues

hi everyone!
we have a tic tac bucket wheel (UK) which I believe is very similar to the CSW in the US. I’m not entirely sure if it’s the same quality though since the bucket on our wheel does not seem to be balancing at all - it is very wobbly and rocks back and forth quite a lot when our hedgie evie stops running (and it does not look very comfortable for her either). she loves loves LOVES running so she runs on it anyway. I’m just worried she’ll hurt herself when trying to get off/on and also am not sure if it’s okay for her to be swinging like that? it swings her halfway along the wheel 😕
I have tried tightening it by hand but it will only go too tight for her to run or so loose it’s swinging again ...
the wheel also suddenly stops spinning as if evie is tightening it by running? sometimes (but only sometimes) it goes back to normal if she changes direction
does anyone have any tips or experience with tic tac wheels?
thanks in advance!
