From the foregoing detailed description it will
be apparent that our invention provides an im
proved golf bag carrier which is simple, compact
and durable in construction, highly e?icient in
use, and ?exible in its adaptations. The im
proved cart may obviously be readily collapsed
for compact storage with the bag applied there
to, or distended for normal use; and while the
carriage is relatively light, it is still exceedingly
strong and rugged. The improved golf bag
transport may also be conveniently adjusted to
?t different styles and sizes of golf bags 29, and
besides being easy to transport, the assemblage
provides a stable base having widespread three
point contact. The improved bag transporting
device may obviously be manufactured and sold
at moderate cost because of its fabrication from
standard materials and parts, and has proven
highly satisfactory in actual use.
It should be understood that it is not desired
to limit this invention to the exact details of
