FOLD / UNFOLD
TROUBLE SHOOTING
Trigger Release
WARNING: Care must be
taken when folding and unfolding the
stroller to prevent finger entrapment.
WHEEL ADJUSTMENT:
It should be noted that all three wheel vehicles can
be easily influenced to deviate from a straight line. In
most cases strollers can have a tendency to pull to the
right/left due to many factors. Including uneven tire
pressure, improper wheel installation, road conditions
and manufacturing tolerances. If you find your Baby
Trend stroller to significantly track or pull to the left or
right while use on flat terrain, follow the sequence of
the instructions on page 3 / page 5 to realign your front
wheel.
TO FOLD STROLLER
Fig. 22
Fig. 23
Close the canopy as described in the canopy
section. Recline seat by releasing buckle as
described in seatback positioning section.
The stroller is folded by simultaneously pulling
each trigger fold. (Fig. 22) When the fold latches
are released, the handle will begin to fall toward
the floor. Release the fold buttons and press
downward on the stroller handle until the stroller
is completely folded. Secure the stroller in the
folded position by hooking the fold latch, located
on the right side of the stroller, over the rivet that
protrudes from the frame.(Fig. 23)
FLAT TIRE:
The jogging stroller features bicycle tires to allow for
extended wear and ease of pushing. Just like a bicycle
tire, the jogging stroller can suffer from flat tires. If you
have a flat tire, you can use a standard bicycle tire repair
kit to repair the tire or you can take the tire to a bicycle
shop for repair. If you experience numerous flat tires,
you may want to purchase thorn proof inner tubes for
the jogging stroller. These can be purchased at bicycle
stores or at many national retail stores. The correct size
to purchase is shown on the sidewall of the tire.
WARNING: Care must be
taken when folding and unfolding the
stroller to prevent finger entrapment.

position. (Fig. 25) The stroller has spring-loaded
latches on both sides of the frame. Test that both
latches are fully engaged prior to placing your
child in the stroller.
