Title: Off-centered dual-purpose handle assembly for wheeled luggage

Abstract: A handle assembly for wheeled luggage is disclosed. The handle grip is off-centered from the center line of luggage in the longitudinal direction across the top of luggage within a predetermined limited distance. The handle assembly further comprises a locking mechanism mounted to the inner tube with locking pins facing each other for engaging three apertures provided in the outer tubes in the handle storage position, the handle for carrying position, or the handle for pulling position. This allows wheels to be away from the legs of user and thus provides a great convenience to user since luggage does not interfere with the user's movement.
