 Hamster balls for hermit crabs?

I read on the internet that hermit crabs will run around in those hamster balls. Is this safe? The website seemed trustworthy, and my larger crabs do seem to like running around in them.

No! It’s stressful for the hermit crab and they can get their legs caught in the little air slits. Please, no hamster balls!
