A little tip for buyers of Carry Freedom Y-frame trailers.
Apparently a common theme to ownership is losing the small dust/water caps that cover the outer bearing
on the outside of the hub.
These caps also enclose the actuator that releases the wheel/axle from the trailer.
I came across a really simple solution somewhere but can no longer remember where the idea came
from except that I stole it - it wasnt my own.
Tis a couple of cable ties held by the spokes that seem to do the trick nicely.

Great tip Aidan and I'm stealing it from you so I don't loose mine not that they have ever come off but adding a zip tie means there never coming off so thanks.
