The Harmony Stowaway Beach Cart stows conveniently in your boat. It has a compact frame, making it easy to break down and stow handily in the hull of your boat. Extremely durable tires with tread travel well on paved or compacted surfaces. The tires have an airless, foam filling so they will never go flat. Features a blue anodized coated aluminum frame with kickstand for easy mounting. The Stowaway beach cart is designed to be mounted under the center of the boat it is carrying, and includes buckled straps to help secure the boat to the cart while rolling.

I recently purchased this item along with a Wilderness Systems Commander 120 from ACK. A great company to do business with by the way. The cart itself is well made, equipped with no-flat tires, light weight, and compact. It easily stows in your car or kayak. However, I ran into the following issues, the two included 10' tie down straps are to short for use on wide beam kayaks such as the Commander and will not pass around the yak and cart for attachment during transport. I tried using the cart at the extreme ends where the boat is narrower but cart constantly slipped off during transport. The second issue is not any fault of the cart but rather is unique to the tunnel hull design of the commander which does not lend itself to this style of cart. In summary, great cart for most kayaks with traditional hull designs. You will need longer straps (12') for wide beam fishing style kayaks.
It's made really well, but I would not buy one again. The straps that were provided do not come close fitting around my kayak (Prowler Big Game II). If you can balance your kayak on the cart, it rolls very easy, but good luck with that especially if you have all of your gear on the kayak. Buy the Seattle Sports Scupper Swift Kayak Cart.
Harmony Stowaway Beach Cart is compact, light and easy to handle. As syated in other reviews, the straps are too short. There's no way the standard straps will secure a kayak as shown in the ACK video. You have to use more straps to secure your boat properly. By the way, the video is very informative.
To beat a dead horse, the straps are not long enough. C'mon Harmony, fix this. I used the longer straps that came with my roof rack, and they worked fine. Once you have the proper straps, it worked great, even pulling through sand at the beach. I have an Ocean Kayak Frenzy
