Tie Knots and Fasten Rope

Tie a knot in one end of a 16-inch length strand of 3/4-inch rope, then pull the opposite end of the rope through one of the holes from the inside of the crate. Pass the rope through the second hole; keep enough slack on the outside to put a hand through comfortably. Tie a knot on the end of the rope inside the crate.

Cut and Tie Rope

Cut any excess rope from the inside of the crate with heavy-duty scissors or utility knife. Repeat steps 7 and 8 to install a handle on the opposite side of the crate.

Position Casters

Turn the crate over so that the bottom is facing up, and then align one caster on each corner, marking the screw holes with a pencil. Be sure to keep the edges of the casters flush with the edges of the crate. Tip: For the best mobility, position the caster between 1/2 inch and 1 1/2 inches in from the corner of the crate.
