Contacted PartsSelect online on Thursday. Saturday the parts arrived. My son and I pulled the old connectors off the wheels and snapped the new ones in place. Then he snapped all the wheels onto the rack. DONE. I still find myself wanting to lift the rack now but the wheels are on and I am happy. All around EXCELLENT. Thank you.

It only took 10 minutes and they had the right parts and I got them in 2 days. I am ashamed to say that I let this go for a couple of months and for about $20 and 10 minues, I was able to take care of the the issue. The3 wife is thrilled.
