    Fold-able cart with removable wheels

The weight is supported by thebearings so the axle will not turn. Byusing this type of connection for the axle, you can always knock out the PVCconnectors to use the cargo carrier for its original purpose by re-installingthe receiver bar. With the plastic shims they can easily be replaced to make acart out of it again.
