In this photo, when collapsed, the handle part of the cart fits between the back wheels. Mine doesn't do this. I have to force it to fit this way. Does y'alls automatically collapse this way?

Yea. Mine folds easily without any force.

I was able to get mine to do this now. I don't know what I was doing wrong lol. Is the handle supposed to click in place when folded and placed between the wheels? Mine just folds down but doesn't lock into place I assume that's so it will unfold easily).

Also, is anyone else's push button really tight? I have to push hard when folding the cart.

Yea. Mine alos does not lock into place when folds down. Have to be careful take in and out from the trunk. Push button is kinda tight too.

Yeah, there is no locking mechanism when folded, i assume so folding and unfolding is quick. My push button is definitely firm, I assume so it doesn't accidentally get popped down and have the cart try to fold in on itself.

One of the tubes has a groove in the middle so that when you push the two parts in, the clip will go into the groove. It's not really a "lock" but it does keep the folding parts together. Also the push button starts off pretty firm but it wears in so it's easier to manage. A tip to getting the button the push in really easily is to put an upward pressure on the handlebar area and the button will push down easier.

I picked one up. My club charges $17 for cart rentals so I'm hoping to save some coin by walking and also get some exercise. Looks like we may get an extended season here in PA for at least another week so I'm hoping to get it and see how it goes.

I usually walk about 5 rounds a summer. This summer I walked about 20 due to the cart; enough to make a noticeable difference in physique. Great cart. Enjoy!

I used this cart all last season and find it works really well.  Hardest thing is remembering if I have the brake on or not.

Yeah, a handbrake would probably be a little better. I mostly try to just not even use the brake, just park it in ways it won't roll.

Handbrake kinda sucks. However, the umbrella holder has a knob to allow you to adjust the angle of the umbrella. Unfornately, Caddytek decided to use a cheap plastic as the pressure pin inside the knob. After about 3 rounds with the umbrella use on each round, the pin snapped internally. Therefore, no pressure to hold up the umbrella vertical - boom, down went the umbrella.

In the end I drilled out where the pin was in the turning knob and inserted a thick wire in its place. Still works today but the plastic pin inside the knob on the umbrella is definitely is a defect. And no, I tighten it enough not to hold it vertical, not some weird angle.

Buyer beware, especially if you use the umbrella on very very hot days like we had in Los Angeles. But hey, its a sub $100 push cart that is very versatile & value for money :)

Anybody used this with a Ping Pioneer?

I'm curious how the upper strap would work.  Pioneer routes golf cart straps underneath the magnetic pocket.  Are the straps on the push cart higher?

that might be a pain. on my nike cart bag I have a front pocket like that but it flips up for the straps to go under. Might have a hard time connecting the hooks on the straps with the pioneer.
