55- on rotissery/rolls away

Iam looking for a way to prevent this from doing so. I just got my 55 up on this roto..for lack of a better word. the wheels are 6" and roll super easy, Have you ever know of this problem ,i sure haven't . i need ideas that will stop this . BEFORE my kar runs over me . last line joke

6 wheels and has nylon centers and Rubber tires .You could push this roto anywhere with almost anything on it. BUT me!! it just wants to throw me on my arse. thanks for any clue to this few pics ..if you need more i 'll get more pics thanks for any tip or clues that will work. Bob s

I usually tie a rag around the wheel. That is to say- I jam a rag under the wheel a little and wrap it around, at the floor. Works pretty good when the casters have no brake.

Maybe a couple of C-clamps tightened on the casters would work. Or cut out a wooden wedge that you can jam between the top of the caster wheel and the underside of the steel "fork" that the caster wheel fits into.

We use angle iron chocks on our race tire carts. We made them out of 1 1/2" L angle. They are three pieces welded into a "C" shape. Make the "C' long enough for the other two legs to capture the caster wheel. They work realy well and are easy to make.

drill a hole in the side of the bracket that holds the wheel. weld a nut centered over that hole so it intersects the side of the tire rubber area..

cut a piece of sheet metal into a V shape...punch a hole for the axle to slide thru at the bottom of the V.. . put some ears or bend it so it won't rotate away from the angles of the wheel bracket... install this on the inside of the bracket.. if you weld a washer to the head of a bolt. now you can lightly tighten the bolt and depress the V shaped with wings sheet metal piece in to LIGHTLY apply drag to the wheels..

if you do the same thing but make an UPSIDE DOWN U shape that is tack welded in place.. you can tighten the wing nut headed bolt that is at 45 degrees to it does not effect clearance of the wheel rotating directly into the middle of the tread.. locking your caster wheels in place.. you would probably only need to do two of them .. but you could do 4...

Put them on 2 diagonal corners and it'll stay put.

Has anybody here ever tried 3/4" bolts thru and adjusting ..welded to the Rotissery legs Basically lifting the " this outfit" up a tad off the floor. Dong 3 legs would be quicker job. Whats your take on this idea, i think personally it could be a good way to go. AS i sat looking this "monsrtosity"on both ends of the 55. It dawned on me. bob s ..............whats your thoughts I'll wait awhile for feedback bob s

that is a great idea.... welding on some coupling nuts to the sides of the legs and using all thread.. as a crank down to stop the movement. might stick a nut about an inch up from the bottom end and an inch and a quarter of 3/4 heater hose.. so it has a rubber to the concrete stopper or a crutch stopper if you want to get fancy...
