About

Where did the idea come from ?

Usually my traveling backpack sits waiting in my room to be packed for my next hiking, camping, or traveling. My product idea was born out of my love of traveling and was developed a few years ago during a layover in Madrid, Spain. After a lengthy flight from Dallas, Texas, the thought of carrying my bags to my connecting flight on sore shoulders and back was excruciating.


As I walked to my gate, I took notice that my wife seemed to have less of a struggle as she pulled her suitcase with built in rollers along. The idea of wheels was captivating but I didn't want to commit to a bag that could only be pulled. I wanted to be able to use my bag as intended. Slinging it across my back as I explored an ancient city or trekking through a forest. Later in my trip I realized that the bag on rollers which my wife was pulling was not practical to use on cobblestone streets or through narrow roads marked with steps and stairs.

It was upon my return that I began to develop the idea of a trolley that could be used when and where I needed it. Something that was compact and small enough to be stored, attached or detached easily from regular carry on luggage, duffel bags  or backpacks. The smallest trolley on the market is still too big, heavy and impractical to be attached to those bags.

DImension and Size
DImension and Size

W X  L = 6.5" x 14.5" =  16.5 cm x 36.8 cm

W1 X L1 = 12" x 22" = 30.5 cm x 55.9 cm

A product needed to be developed that was light weight and could easily fold and store in the bag being used. It had to be simple, easy to operate, and have parts that were easy to replace. It was with all this in mind that I created KwikT, a small compact trolley that is currently patent pending.

Risks and challenges

Bear in mind that all dimensions and specifications above are based on prototypes which have been measured and tested. Reliability and strength are some factors to be considered while designing a product, so there is a possibility in the future that there could be a few parts and dimensions which could be slightly modified to achieve better performance.

Although higher weight has been tested on this product, avoid loading over maximum capacity. When placing bags or other load on KwikT, make sure that all straps are secured tightly. In order to do this, take not that here are two sets of straps; one runs from the top handle to the center of the wheel support bar and another one runs from side to side.

If you don't secure the bag properly, you might drop or damage both your bag and KwikT!
Don't let children play with this product without supervision!
Don't use KwikT to carry humans, animals, or any other overweight materials!
