Features of The Clicgear Model 3.5 Push Cart
Well, we’ve put the Clicgear Model 3.5 push cart review together to help you find out!
Let’s start our Clicgear Model 3.5 push cart review with the heavy-duty frame, which is at the base of this golf push cart’s many other benefits.
Clicgear boasts that the frame of this push cart is made from aircraft-grade and scratch-resistant aluminum. Given the price that Clicgear asks for, you could expect a long life from this golf push cart.
Remarkably, the Model 3.5+ golf push cart is as light as many other push carts on the market – it weighs about 18 pounds. This is far from being the lightest on the market, but it’s very close to the weight of cheaper and less durable push carts.
Clicgear approached the foldability aspect of this golf push cart in a remarkable way. The company calls the folding system of this push cart “slide-to-close”. What the folding mechanism of this push cart allows is minimal input from you while the sliding parts do most of the job.
With that being said, the Model 3.5+’s folding mechanism requires some getting used to since it’s unlike what you may see in many other golf push carts on the market. But once you master it, this golf cart may turn out to be the most convenient golf cart you’ve ever used.
Adjustable bag mounts
Model 3.5+ has 2 bag straps – one supports your cart bag from the top and the other from the bottom.
The straps feature clips that should allow for effortless fixation of your cart bag in place. Not only that, but you can adjust the bag straps to accommodate for larger or smaller bags.
Clicgear claims that Model 3.5+ can take any bag size, which should be true since the Model 3.5+ is a full-size golf push cart, but it probably won’t be the best for small and short bags.
The Model 3.5+ golf cart also features handle angle adjustment, which should allow most people, if not anyone to operate the cart conveniently. Whether you are a short or tall golfer, this golf cart should be the right size for you.
When it comes to the easiness of use, the Model 3.5+ is solid, particularly thanks to its tires.
This push cart features 3 airless tires which don’t require any maintenance from you other than occasional cleaning. And, of course, having no air in them, the tires are puncture-proof.
The Model 3.5+ golf cart also has a convenient handbrake – when flipped to its upper position, the brake keeps the cart in place without user input. While handbrakes don’t functionally differ from footbrakes that are quite common in golf carts, many people prefer handbrakes to footbrakes, which may be true for you as well.
Great storage capacity
The Model 3.5+ golf push cart has solid storage capacity as well.
The centerpiece of the storage area in this golf cart is its console – it’s a full-size console with built-in scorecard, golf ball, tee, and pencil holders.
Beneath the console, the Model 3.5+ push cart has a small mesh pocket which allows you to keep the essentials close by.
And perhaps most importantly, this golf push cart has an umbrella mount and a standard cup holder out of the box.
For some people, the accessory mounts may be the most interesting feature in the Model 3.5+ golf push cart.
The 4 accessory tabs could allow you to make the Model 3.5+ the ideal golf push cart. Among the accessories that you could mount on this push cart are a seat, an XL cup holder, a steering knob, and a cooler bag.
With that being said, if you decide to buy additional accessories for this golf push cart, you’ll have to spend quite the money – the Model 3.5+ isn’t cheap to begin with, let alone with accessories.
But given all the other benefits we’ve covered on our Clicgear Model 3.5 push cart review, this golf cart is worth it if you need its conveniences.
- Durable yet rather light frame.
- Low-effort folding mechanism.
- Adjustable bag mounts
- Maintenance-free tires.
- Convenient handbrake.
- Great storage space.
- 4 accessory tabs.
- A bit expensive, especially with accessories.
- The folding mechanism requires some getting used to.

What’s the difference between Clicgear Model 3.0 and 3.5 push carts?
Model 3.5+ has a few improvements over the older 3.0 model. Among them are new bag straps, a storage net, a little bit deeper console, and a more durable braking system. The 3.0 cart is also discontinued, so you should go for the 3.5+ unless you have a specific reason not to.
Can you adjust the height of the bag straps to accommodate shorter bags?
No, you cannot adjust the height of the bag straps. The recommended bag height for this golf push cart is 33 inches and up. If you have a shorter bag, you may fix it with just the lower straps, but it won’t be stable.
What are the folded dimensions of this golf push cart?
13 x 15 x 24 inches when folded.
Does the front wheel in the Model 3.5+ push cart swivel?
No, it does not. However, the Model 3.5+ push cart still is a very maneuverable push cart, so the fixed position of the front wheel shouldn’t be an issue for you.

Is this golf push cart worth it in the end? Well, this depends on your needs.
We’ve outlined exactly what the benefits of this golf push cart are. If you don’t need them, there are many cheaper golf push carts out there that are better in some areas. Some have 4 wheels, others have a swiveling front wheel, or perhaps come with a cooler bag.
If you think that you will need them though, then the Model 3.5+ golf push cart may be an excellent choice.
