If you have no idea how to use a kayak trolley, this is a good starting point. In order to get started, first put your kayak into the water and follow the instructions that come with the trolley. This step is pretty self explanatory. Next, attach the straps to your kayak in order to secure it in place. Next, pull the straps through the scupper holes and secure with the provided lock.

Next, you need to know how to operate the various controls on the kayak cart. On the handle bars are controls for steering and turning the kayak. In addition, there are buttons for lighting and pumping the boat. Another handy button is on the stabilizer bar which allows you to raise or lower the hull of your kayak. The last set of buttons are for powering both the motor and the emergency brake.

The next step is to take your kayak trolley to the open water and make several laps around an area that has a few rocks or other types of uneven terrain. Make sure to test out all four legs of the cart to ensure they work properly. Once you are happy that the legs are stable, attach them to the frame with the strap so that they can be held securely in place. Make sure that the four wheels spin freely as you drive in a straight line. If they do not, adjust them to the correct position before continuing.

The final step is to fill the kayak with water and plug in the battery. Start the motor and attach the rails. Now, sit back as the Kayak begins to travel along the rails and the tires on the flat surface begin to roll. When the wheels are near the middle of the path, begin to pull the kayak trolley towards the rail. Continue to pull the trolley until the kayak stops completely on the rail.

Once you have the kayak completely out of the water, attach the strapping again and set the kayak cart into position. Turn the power back on and add one or two more of the optional accessories that you have added to your kayak. Turn the knobs on and begin to enjoy your day on the lake. Your friends and family will be impressed with the effort that you have dedicated to making your kayak cart perfect!
