Kit Makes Wheelbarrow Easier To Dump
The kit consists of a pair of 1/4-in. wide metal straps that bolt between the underside of the cart and also attach to the wheelbarrow's wooden handles near the wheel. There's a U-channel on the bottom side of each strap. A pair of "stops" connect the straps to the middle part of the handles. As you raise the wheelbarrow handles to dump the load, the stops slide up the U-channels which allows the cart to pitch forward off the handles and dump its load.
"It lets you control the wheelbarrow instead of it controlling you, so that at the end of the day you're not nearly as tired," says the company.
The kit fits most wheelbarrows equipped with wooden handles.
Sells for $130 plus S&H.
