Fixing a Travel Bag.

We have a good bag for travelling however the two front wheels broke off. What a bummer!

Instead of buying a new bag, I fixed it. Read on for this cost effective repair.

Step 1: Wheels!

Using 2 caster wheels, I proceeded to replace the broken originals.

Step 2: Additional Hardware and Tools.

Using some short bolts with nuts and lock washers, together with my handy drill, I'm now ready for work!

Step 3: Fitting the Wheels On.

Using the drill I made one hole for the first wheel. I pushed the bolt through and tightened the nut with lock washer with my screwdriver and pliers.

Diagonally across and drilled and installed the other bolt.

Step 4: Completion!

With the both wheels installed the bag now can roll again! Not bad for a 30 minute job!
