There is not much maintenance needed really, except to keep the rails as clean as possible. If you every get debris stuck to the wheels you can try laying a “wet nap” or any thin wet cloth over the rail and then roll the cart over it to clean the wheel. You can also try compressed air to blow it out. If you ever get a nick in the composite portion of the rail you can try to “lightly” sand the imperfection out with fine sand paper. If the cart ever becomes lose to the rail you can adjust it by following the instructions of this video.
