Just a follow-up to my earlier review:
The black "scoop" holder does fit inside my 10" hatch openings. I put that in the front hatch compartment. The wheels, tiny axle, and fittings all go into my 7" day hatch opening. I stash them together inside a small/medium dry bag. Just make sure you securely keep the 2 cotter pins and 4 bushings; they are small and would be easy to drop or lose.
The cart worked well on a recent trip where I needed it to get to the water without driving, about a 15-minute haul on foot each way, each time. I may put in a very thin foam pad or shelf-liner to make softer contact between the "scoop" and the hull. But in stock form, it holds the kayak well (with straps).
