|The JMI large wheel upgrade allows you to easily roll your telescope case over rough surfaces. |
Add large 10-inch all-terrain pneumatic wheels to your telescope carrying case to improve travel over rough surfaces. The upgrade can be purchased at the time you purchase the case or at a later date. You will be required to drill six holes in the case if you are attaching an after-purchase upgrade.
The wheels can quickly and easily be removed from the axles on the bracket by pulling two spring clip pins. This will help reduce the overall size of the case for placing it in a small space such as a trunk. The whole assembly (wheels and bracket) can be removed in order to use the smaller standard wheels (on the 8 through 11 inch telescope cases).
When installed, the wheels add 2 inches of depth, measuring from the bottom of the case (not including the small standard wheels), and 10-1/2 to 11-1/2 inches of length, measuring from the end of the case where the bracket is attached. If the wheels are removed from the bracket, the above dimensions can be reduced by approximately 4-1/2 inches each. Due to the contoured shape of the carrying cases, actual changes in the overall length of the case will be less and will depend on the model.
