With castors

Community Plaything's side-stacking cot cart is a back saver for teachers and ECE's.  This unique cart designed specifically for CP cots, stacks them on their sides, not flat on their legs. Locking castors makes the process even easier. Stacking them sideways means you can take advantage of gravity laying them on the floor without lifting or bending.    

It also means that if a student is away, you can pull out their labelled cot without having lift and re-stack any others.

In addition all four castors swivel, improving manoeuvrability in and out of tight spaces like closets without undue back and torso strain.

This side stacking design will significantly reduce the daily strain that commonly contributes to loss of work hours for ECE's and teachers.
