Ideas to attach a swivel wheel Solidworks!

    Hi everyone, I am newly registred here.

    I am a university student in mechanical engineering in Canada.


    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    I have to use Solidworks to build a cart that has a steel plate on the top mounted somehow to 4 swivel wheels assembly provided that has a pin to attach. *see swivel wheel assembly pic*


    The only contraint is the steel plate size on top must be a specific width and lenght, which is not a problem here.

    3. The attempt at a solution


    I tought about generating the steel plate then weldging some sides and their corners to which I would attach one wheel each.

    My problem comes to how I am supposed to attach the retaining pin to the corners ... All I could think about was to use a Beta pin to clip the pin... But there has to be another way much better.

    I am opened to any suggestions concerning the way to attach the wheel' retaining pin to the steel plate.

    Thanks .

    The idea I came up with..
