    Does it only have the two wheels? If you really are planning to use it in the store for shopping, it seems like it would be inconvient to always need to keep a hand on it to keep it balanced.

    Fantabulous.

    Very sweet, how did you atatch the forks to the basket?
    I saw a website using plastic zipties, which sure looked scary...

    Can't see how it's attached to the grocery cart. I would stay away from cable ties, more appropriate would be stainless hose clamps if welding the forks are not feasible.

    That is pure genius. I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for a pooched grocery cart. And I'd go with muffler u-clamps before using hose clamps. Much more robust.

    I think that welding them would probably be the best solution...
