KATA insertrolley

Hi

Please someone tell me what is the pointed item in the attached picture on the KATA insertrolley. It moves up and down and I would like to know what do you use it for.

Turn it inside and push it down to fix the trolley.

It provides a contact with the ground when the trolley is laid down, preventing the handle from touching the ground.

Re: KATA insertrolley

Both these answers do not help very much. If you take out the trolley and put it on the ground, you can see what this stand does. It does not help protect the handle when laid down, but lifts the wheels slightly off the ground where the trolley stands on and then prevents it from rolling away from you. However, in practice it is of limited use, because it all too often does not 'fold out' completely to give you that extra security.

The other use is to turn it the other way as Mirko said and it prevents the trolley from collapsing.
