I did mine today and decided against removing the band from the base in order to add the longer bolts on the outside hinge for the handle attachemnt. I found even though the bolt was short it still got enough bite to be firm and hold with some tightness.
Did anyone else skip this step? I wont be using the hadle to do much lifting just pulling around here and there. Also i noticed my nest already had the brace bar below, so i went ahead and attached the one provided so there are now 2 (front and back).
Locking casters are being used as the front of my egg.... i think in a search i saw that it didnt really matter which end was used as back or front.
