This is a two wheel cart that is made to mount on one end of a canoe or kayak. Two uprights have a wheel on one end, a semi-vee padded support for the canoe bottom in the middle and a cross bar with a shock cord at the top. To use the cart simply slide the bow between the two uprights until it rests on the padded support, then secure the shock cord, which has a hook on the free end, to a seat or thwart.
The device is remarkably effective and folds to a smaller size. I use it predominantly for launching and take out and it has handled some fairly steep banks and bumpy terrain well. As the wheels are solid and on the small side--rather like those of a power lawnmower--I'm not sure how it would do on an extended portage or over a rough trail. But, when your heavy canoe is a ways from your vehicle and up a river ban it is really nice to have.
