Anyone any experience of the "Pull-Over-Trolley" ? Would it handle a fully loaded Sea Kayak ?

I have this trolley and haven't used it successfully, it just will not stay in place. If I place it where the hull shape fits the cradle, there is nothing I can route the straps through to keep it there, if I use it where the deck line fittings prevent it moving it needs huge amounts of padding to prevent the boat wobbling like a mad shopping trolley. It does seem to be made reasonably well hut I think my boat is the wrong shape for it. I have a Nelo Inuk which is very light but also tapers significantly which I believe is what stops this trolley from fitting well. It's stated weight limit means it probably won't be suitable for a kayak loaded with anything other than a light day trip.

I've used one of these for a while now. Very easy to fix to my sea kayak. Just strap it tightly in place with the long strong provided, then run a rope from one axle forward and around the cockpit rim and back to the other axle end to keep it in place, and the end of the long strap forward to a towing eye or something similar. This keeps it firmly in place and even rough ground causes no problems. Very light, compact and cheap.
