Can you just take the Tru Trak off when you're not using it, or is it too much of a PITA?

I'm at the point to where I just take my Velke off my Viking wb if I'm not going to use it for a small period of time.

I can take it off but I like the idea of hanging it when not using it then dropping it when I want to use it

Hanging= wheelie Off= Intended purpose. It's a PITA. Should look into a proslide.

so really the only point to hang them is to get them out of the way. But if there left on the machine they have to be used or it wont stay down

Yeah I hang mine when loading on the trailer for extra room. Rarely do I hang it up while in a yard. Only if I'm in a tight spot. Like I said, you may want to look at a pro slide. As soon as you step off of it, it automatically folds up and weighs nothing.

Proslide site states that you can only use a proslide on a 48" + sized deck and it has to be a hydro. They are quite pricey too. For a quick fix, just take the sulky off and walk it....Sucks I know.

I love the tru trak system, and I just added the two ropes to hang them but quickly realized the downfall
