Strap is useless, will replace it and the pins for the wheels. Tires are a little small but should work fine. Light weight and sturdy. Should work nicely for carrying my sled and duck decoys.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JRNissley Good cart; bad strap
Cart is sturdy and well-priced. Strap is useless. I now use clamp straps or bungee. That made the cart work like a pro. If you buy it, just know going in that you'll need to account for the strap.
Once I made adjustments, cart worked great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Huckster Very good product
The thing I like the most about this cart is that it breaks down to a point where I can store it inside my kayak. The only negative to the cart is the springs on the pins that hold the wheels on. If you are not carefull you could lose them. I tethered mine to the pins with small tie wraps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Scarface Fine, with modifications!
The cart works well after two simple modifications. First: Replace the useless tie down strap with two heavy bungees.
Second: Replace the two spring loaded wheel retaining clips with 1/4X2 inch clevis pins each with 2, 1/4 inch hitch pins.
On a more serious note my cart arrived with a defective tube in one tire. There was a small split in a seam, around the valve stem, which defied patching or sealing. Several attempts to contact Attwood through the "contact us" link on the company web site to find out how to obtain a new tube garnerd no response at all. I called Bass Pro, explained the problem, and was immediately told a new tube would be shipped at no charge to me. The Bass Pro rep then told me in order save postage fees I shouldn't bother sending the defective tube back. HEY ATTWOOD! That's called great customer service. And that's why I shop Bass Pro.

In my Ascend FS12T, I can remove the wheels and fold up and stick it in the rear hold (where a crate could go). I don't use a crate, so I typically put the cart there when I hit the water. I haven't tried the front hatch, but it looks like it would be an awkward fit.
Yes. The wheels are 10-inches in diameter and are secured with a spring loaded clevis pin. Removal and installation is easy and they should fit in most kayak hatches.
You have to be careful when removing and installing the clevis pins, however, as they can easily slip from your fingers when the spring is compressed and get launched several feet. It would probably be a good idea to perform this function away from the water.
