  • Patent number: 10864933
    Abstract: A hand truck includes a frame that is supported by main wheels and a handle having two side members. Two handle brackets are pivotably mounted on opposite sides of the frame. The handle brackets are arranged for rotation in relation to the frame around a handle rotation axis. The handle brackets slidably receive the side members of the handle so that the handle is able to slide between a first retracted position and a second extended position. The handle is also able to rotate with the handle brackets between first and second rotational positions. A lock mechanism that is mechanically associated with the handle brackets and the handle is able to releasably lock the degree of extension of the handle in at least one position between the retracted and extended positions and is able to lock the rotational position of the handle in at least one rotational position.

    Abstract: A hand truck with main wheels and a toe plate also includes a handle assembly that is mounted to the frame of the hand truck so that the handle assembly is able to rotate and slide relative to the truck frame. The hand truck may be arranged in a first upright dolly position in which the handle assembly is generally aligned with the truck frame and a second cart position in which the truck frame is generally horizontal and the handle assembly is extended and rotated so that it is upright and normal relative to the truck frame. A latch assembly mounted to the truck frame is able to releasably receive and secure the handle assembly in the first upright dolly position.

  • Patent number: 10703397
    Abstract: A hand truck that includes frame assembly, wheels and a toe plate assembly. The frame assembly includes two side members and a base member extending between the lower ends of the side members. The toe plate assembly is rotatably mounted to the frame so that the toe plate is able to rotate between an operating position in which the toe portion extends forward for sliding under and lifting loads and the toe plate rests against the base member of the frame and a storage position in which the toe plate rests upon the wheel axle and an intermediate shipping position such that when the wheels are removed the hand truck may fit into a box having a minimum depth.
