Questions for Clicgear owners

21 posts in this topic

I love everything about this cart. Yet heard it can be a hassle opening and closing it(5 idfferent movements)? What are you views? I would want this because it folds up so small, it would be perfect for the trunk of my Jetta. I currently have an old Bag Boy Express. It's a good cart, yet huge when folded. And the male connector on the bottom strap fell off, for the second time. I orderded the second one for $15 and can no longer find it. And don't want to buy another replacement. Yes, I can go out and get a bungee cord now, if I choose too. I golfed with a buddy having one of those Golfsmith Tour Treks. One button open and close. Half the price of the Clicgear. Yet still a large cart when folded.

I love mine, but to be honest it took some "training" to be able to open it ... even pinched my fingers a couple of times ... never claimed to be a smart man ... however, after a few trial runs I am an expert now.  Love the way it folds to nothing

Have too admit I am ready to upgrade to one with a built in seat ... I just need to rest these old legs on occasion.

The movements all blend into one. You just have to make sure it is facing the right way and that you have your foot on the front wheel.

I've got the 2.0.  It only takes a few seconds to open or close it.  (You can watch on the video on their website .)

They make a seat that can be installed on versions 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and 3.5+. You can order it from the accessories part of their website. I don't know how comfortable, how sturdy, or how easy to install it is, though.

(No, I don't work for them.  I happened to be looking at their website this weekend because I had to make a minor repair/adjustment to mine.)

I love my 3.0 and the more you open and close it the easier it gets.  Do a search on youtube as there are some very imformative videos on opening and closing it.  I will be adding a seat to mine next which will take time getting used to I am sure but this cart is so much fun the more you use it the more you appreciate how well it is made.  Mine was a Christmas present so I opened it and closed it while it sat in my living room waiting for Spring to arrive in Michigan so it is second nature for me to get out and open it up without much thought anymore.  I figure I have saved thirty or more dollars in cart fees already and the best part is I am having fun exercising and losing weight walking instead of riding.

I've had my Clicgear 3.5 for around 6 months now and I still think it's a great trolley. As far as opening and closing the trolley I would not worry about it, the handles you need to unluck are red so you can easily see them, after you have opened it 3-4 times it will be like tying your shoelaces.

Very good buy in my eyes, would recommend to others.

Cool. Thanks for your reviews. Can it, with the straps and all, hold cart bags? I have the Titleist lightweight cart bag and would like to eventually get the Sun Mountain Tour Series bag. Would this be a problem you think?

I have the 3.0.  Love it.  When I first got it it was a tad confusing about how to open/close it easily, but once you get it down it's fast and very easy.  Like @Shorty said, it's all about putting your foot on the wheel when opening it.  Closing it's super easy.  Just remember to close/shift the front wheel first.

As to the space, I replaced my carry bag with a cart bag when I got the 3.0.  It could easily fit a huge cart bag.  No issues there.

One tip, the cup holder is useful, but attach it to the top nob, not the lower nob (there are two along at least one side of the handle).  If it's on the lower nob it gets in the way of closing the bag too often.

You have to push and pull in the right places, but it's no hazzle to set up or pack down. Takes me 10-15 minutes each way. It doesn't spring out all by itself, but if you follow the instructions, it's no problem.

I love the cart. It's my first, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I'm very pleased with it. It feels sturdy, rolls well and gives me what I want from a pushcart.

No I have used it for both my cart bag and stand bag and it works great.  The clicgear has easy to use straps to hold the bag in place.  My bags do not have pockets where the carry strap is located so it they both fit snug into the nest of the cart.  Just got back from nine holes today and unless I am doing eighteen holes as I am 65 years old I'm happy I spent the money I did on the Clicgear.  Once you get one of these or the Sun Mountain three wheel cart is nice also you will wonder how you ever got along without it.  Just remember you get what you pay for...

For you techs out there that like to really study these carts (I know I did all winter) try taking two of them turn them upside down and spin the wheels at the same rate of speed to see what good bearings can do to help push your cart.  I did this with the Clicgear 3.0 and the Sun Mountain three wheel cart that looks similar.  Had the sales guy at Golfsmith turn them over so the front wheel was up in the air.  Took both wheels and spun them equally best as I could.  Did this two different times and the Sun Mountain was spinning twice as long after the Clickgear's wheel stopped spinning.  I have to believe that Sun Mountain spent a little more on the bearings they use but at the end of the day I bought the Clicgear 3.0 mainly because I could get mine for about forty dollars cheaper.  Both are excellent carts just wanted to share some of the work I did checking all these carts out before I made a decision on which one to buy.

? Type-o? Kind of quite some time to open and close a cart.

It takes me around 3 minutes top to get my gear out of my van set up my trolley with bag and get golf shoes on.

The folding of the trolley takes me around 15 seconds no kidding.

thought there must of been something wrong :D

I actually timed myself this morning took me 10 seconds and i got the top strap caught, so I think around 6-7 seconds to open it normally.

Just watched the YouTube vids for opening and closing it. As Spanky would say: "REMAAAAKABLE".  Very easy and quick, considering the 5 steps and levers to use.  SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Hopefully it should also weigh less than my BagBoy, which would be great for pushing up the freaking hills on my local courses. But now I will have more room in my trunk.

Its folds very compact and like we said the opening and closing is very easy once you have used it a couple of times. It does weight quite a bit though compared to normal push trolleys as its built with good materials but is still very easy to push.

If your looking at buying any of the addon's for your clicgear trolley I would recommend the umbrella angle adjuster one (linked below) paired with a good umbrella is a life saver.

One addon I would be a little sketchy about is the GPS holder, I found it did not fit my old Garmin G3 model. If it does fit the model you are using it may not be so bad but its not the greatest design.
