The case includes six latches (four lockable) for the removable cover (no hinge), two folding handle bars, four steel-reinforced handles and die-cut foam lining with compartments for telescope, eyepieces, finder scope (must be removed from the telescope and placed in a special vinyl cover included with the case) and accessories. The focuser does not need to be removed before installation. The top of the case is not hinged. It is removed completely to insert or remove the telescope. The case is designed to be maneuvered like a wheelbarrow with the two retractable handle bars and two 10" pneumatic wheels. Installation of the wheels and support rails is easy and requires two 7/16" wrenches (or two crescent wrenches). This case is compatible with Peterson ergonomic Get-A-Grip handles.
