VENDOR: Helping reduce the need for an assistant

I have designed and am marketing a bag that basically frees one up of needing an assistant. Now you can carry up to 4 lights in on bag, fully assembled and ready to go. The bag has a 'kickstand' for uneven surfaces or for the beach when you can't lay your bag down, and has wheels for easy mobility through churches and receptions. Check it out at www.thelightcaddy.com

    I like it; however, doing several beach shoots a year, I'd like to see a version that has oversized tires. the ones that are on there will quickly bog down in sand.

    It's a twist, but I don't know if it eliminates a whole assistant. Maybe just an arm or something.

    The price is very good too.

    Thanks everyone for your comments! Travis- I included a large shoulder strap to transport the bag over sand. I understand the large tire concept- but my target were photographers who work on many surfaces. Thanks,Rob

    You might consider making the large tire an option (special order). Here on the west coast, there are plenty of areas that would benefit from larger tires.

    It is a neat idea, good luck with it.

    my lightstands (2 for main lights) have permanently attached wheels about 3" in dia.......will they fit thru the provided holes?? but that isn't going to reduce the need for an assistant it will only possibly make the assistants job a bit easier.....possibly and as Travis pointed out a true need for larger tires not only for the sand but also for stair climbing.... a larger tire of approx 10" will make pulling up stairs a lot easier as the normal riser is 8" ( a problem with most hand trucks (2-wheelers) is that their tires are 6-8" and they get got on the lip of the stair.....with a 10" tire this will not happen and the tires really should be pneumatic....However it looks as if this is just a converted golf bag....to which they do not come with pneumatic tires or tires of 10" diameters.............

    Good Luck
