Title: Dual hand truck

Abstract: A dual position hand truck includes a central frame having two side rails and a toe plate. Positioned at an upper end of the central frame is a U-shaped handle bar which has a hand gripping portion and two extended legs with castered wheels attached at their respective bottom ends. The handle bar is pivotally attached to the frame by a fixed shaft and a pair of support brackets. The support brackets also allow the extended legs to slide along their length. Attached to the support brackets is a spring biased locking bar which locks the handle bar against rotational movement relative to the frame.
