I bought an inexpensive beach cart from Walmart a while back and it
works fine except for one thing, the handle isn't long enough. Does
anyone have any ideas on how I might be able to extend the handle
another six or eight inches. I posted it here thinking that the answer
might involve wood in some way or fashion. Here's a picture of the
cart that I am describing.
Thanks very much.
Assuming you don't want to take the cart apart, I might suggest cobbling
up a U shaped handle out of 3 pieces of wood with two "arms" screwed to
the cross piece. Attach the new handle to the cart with hose clamps
binding the arms to the current handle. Kinda ugly but functional.
Exactly, last thing you should do is drill holes in those metal tubes, it
will start to turn into a pretzel on you after the first use.
Could do it out of wood but I suspect that for quick and dirty it
would be easier to use some plastic pipe and elbows. Be ugly but
that's the nature of quick and dirty.

Use a bungee cord or two to attach the beach chairs to the cart and
then just use the longest beach chair as a handle to pull the cart.
If you really are looking for an excuse to do some woodworking, make
the bungees out of wood. ;)
Yep... or at least the end hooks...
I think I'd but a $20 folding shopping/laundry cart at Wally-World and but the
chairs in it..
Or, use $50 worth of hardwood and extend the handle that way ;-]
