Detail Trolley

I've been and bought one of those cheap 3 shelf trolley's to put all my gear on rather than trudging back & too into the garage. When constructed, there are quite a lot of bolts exposed on the outside of the trolley.

So, my driveway is on an incline. I'm slightly worried that the trolley might roll into one of the cars (although on of the castors does have a brake), whilst I'm not paying attention at some point. My plan was to zip tie some cheap radiator hose over the corners, which might go some way to protect against mishaps.


Turns out that rubber hose is around £4 per meter, and I probably need about 5 meters (1m per corner + some for the handle). Going to cost about the same as the trolley was....


Other than the usual pipe foam lagging, anyone got any bright idea's?


Maybe cut up swimming noodles?

How about using something to chock the wheels so it wont move by its self? I'd rather have a couple of house bricks in the trolley to use as chocks when I was happy with where the trolley was at.

I'd just go with the pipe lagging TBH.

I'm another vote for the pipe lagging. I get that you may want form over function but if you want something to look the part and be the part then you need to pay the money. Nothing wrong with pipe lagging. It's cheap enough that you can throw it away next year when you have a spare few quid if you're not happy with it.

Okay, cheers guys. Pipe lagging it is then. Was just concerned it wasn't dense enough.

Wicks here I come

Clip a padlock to one of the wheels to stop it moving or put your wash bucket against it
