    HELP! I think I might be missing a part but cant find any good pics to see. Basically my drive wheels are free rolling. It looks like the ratchetting wire may be bent, even when I get it on the teeth it still can roll back pretty easy. Columbia's appear to have a round teflon end on it...

    Do any of you guys have a NorthStar extendable box handle? If so, is there a way to adjust it? You have to squeeze the handle almost all the way before it catches and it is catching less and less. To the point it doesn't much anymore. Any ideas?
