warning s for s af e u s e
B. CENTER OF BALANCE
Kid Kart mobility devices are designed for stability and performance. The point where this device
will tip forward, back, or to the side depends on its center of balance and stability. The center of
balance is also affected by:
• The distance between the rear wheels.
• The seat height and seat angle.
• Backrest angle.
• Changes in your child's body position, postures or weight distribution.
• Pushing the mobility device on a ramp or slope.
• The use of a backpack or other options, and the amount of added weight.
To maintain the proper center of gravity and balance:
• Consult your therapist and supplier when the mobility device is set up.
• Consult your authorized supplier or therapist BEFORE you modify or adjust the mobility device.
• Use anti-tip tubes.
C. DRESSING OR CHANGING CLOTHES
Your child's weight may shift if you dress or change your child's clothes while they are seated in the
mobility device. To reduce the risk of a fall or tip over while changing clothes or diapers:
• Rotate the front casters until they are as far forward as possible.
• Engage the wheel locks
• Ensure that anti-tip tubes are in the down position.
D. OBSTACLES
Obstacles and road hazards (such as potholes and broken pavement) can damage your mobility device
and may cause a fall, tip over or loss of control. To avoid these risks:
• Scan the area well ahead for danger as you push the mobility device.
• Make sure the floor areas ahead are level and free of obstacles.
• Install a ramp at entry or exit doors. Make sure there is not a drop off at the bottom of the ramp.
E. REACHING OR LEANING
If your child reaches or leans it will affect the center of balance of your mobility device. This may cause
a fall or tip over.
• NEVER allow your child to reach or lean if they must shift their weight sideways, forward, or
backward and rise up off the seat.
• If your child must reach, move the mobility device as close as you can to the object they wish to
reach and rotate the front casters until they are as far forward as possible.
Note: To do this: Move your mobility device past the object you want to reach, then back up
alongside it.

mkt3048
v.
warning s for s af e u s e
F. RAMPS, SLOPES & SIDE HILLS
Pushing the mobility device on a slope, including ramps or hills, will change the center of balance. A few
safety reminders include:
1.Do not push this product on a slope steeper than 10%. (A 10% slope means: one foot in elevation for
every ten feet of slope length.)
2.Do not turn or change direction on a slope or ramp.
3.For your child's safety, ramps at home and work must meet all legal requirements for your area.
4.Always stay in the CENTER of the ramp.
5.Use a ramp with guardrails (or raised borders at least 3" high).
6.Always go straight up and straight down on hills or ramps.
7. Do not stop on a steep slope.
8.Watch for a drop-off at the bottom of a slope or ramp.
9.Do not engage the wheel locks to slow or stop your mobility device.
10. Beware of wet or slippery surfaces.
11. Do not recline or tilt the shell while going up hills.
12. Ask for help any time you are in doubt.
G. TRANSFERS
1.Work with your health care advisor to learn safe transfer and lifting methods.
2.Have someone help you until you know how to do a safe transfer of your child on your own.
3.Engage the wheel locks before you transfer. This keeps the rear wheels from rolling.
4.Move your child's mobility device as close as you can to the seat you are transferring to.
5.Rotate the front casters until they are as far forward as possible.
6.Transfer your child as far back onto the seat surface as you can. This will reduce the risk that the
mobility device will tip or move away from you.
H. CURBS & STEPS
Follow the instructions below for descending or climbing a stair or curb. Do not try to climb a high curb
or step (more than 4 high) unless you have help. Doing so may cause your mobility device to exceed its
balance point and tip over.
To descend a curb or single step going BACKWARD:
1.Stay at the rear of the mobility device.
2.Several feet before you reach the edge of the curb or step, turn the mobility around and pull it
backward.
3.While looking over your shoulder, carefully step back until you are off the curb or stair and standing on
the lower level.
4.Pull your mobility device toward you until the rear wheels reach the edge of the curb or step. Then
allow the rear wheels to slowly roll down onto the lower level.
5.When the rear wheels are safely on the lower level, tilt the mobility device back to its balance point.
This will lift the front casters off the curb or step.
6.Keep the mobility device in balance and take small steps backward. Turn the mobility device around
and gently lower front casters to the ground.
13
mkt3048
9921700000 Rev C
v.
warning s for s af e u s e
To climb a step or curb going FORWARD:
1.Stay behind the mobility device.
2.Face the curb and tilt the mobility device up on the rear wheels so that the front casters clear the
curb or step.
3.Move forward, placing the front casters on the upper level as soon as you are sure they are past the
edge.
4.Continue forward until the rear wheels contact the face of the curb or step. Lift and roll the rear
wheels to the upper level.
I. CLIMBING STAIRS
1.Use at least two attendants to move this mobility device up stairs.
2.Move the mobility device and rider BACKWARD up the stairs.
3.The person at the rear is in control. He or she tilts the mobility device back to its balance point.
4.A second attendant at the front firmly grasps a non-detachable part of the front frame and lifts the
mobility device up and over one stair at a time. You may want to rotate the anti-tippers up so that
they do not interfere with steps.
5.The attendants move to the next stair up. Repeat for each stair, until you reach the landing.
J. DESCENDING STAIRS
1.Use at least two attendants to move an occupied mobility device down stairs.
2.Move the mobility device and rider FORWARD down the stairs.
3.The person at the rear is in control. He or she tilts the mobility device to the balance point of the rear
wheels and rolls it to the edge of the top step.
4.A second attendant stands on the third step from the top and grasps the frame. He or she lowers
the chair one step at a time by letting the rear wheels roll over the stair edge.
5.The attendants move to the next stair down. Repeat for each stair, until you reach the landing.
k.ESCALATORS
NEVER use this mobility device on an escalator, even with an attendant.

warning s for com p on e nt s & o p tion s
Below are warnings for various standard and optional components for your Xpress. (Options may vary
based on your Kid Kart model.) If you fail to heed these warnings, you may cause damage to your Kid
Kart, a fall, tip over or a loss of control that may cause severe injury to the child, caregiver or others.
A. TRANSIT OPTION
1.Use only Wheelchair Tiedown and Occupant Restraint Systems (WTORS) which meet the
requirements of SAE J2249 Recommended Practice - Wheelchair Tiedown and Occupant Restraint
Systems for Use in Motor Vehicles. Do not use WTORS designed to rely on the stroller structure to
transfer occupant restraint loads to the vehicle. (See page 11)
2a. The positioning shell/mobility base unit has been dynamically tested with the occupant facing
forward mode for a 30 mph (48-km/h) frontal impact test. The occupant must be facing forward
during transport if the occupant is greater than 20 pounds in weight.
2b. For infants (20 pounds or less in weight) the positioning shell/mobility base combination must be
facing to the rear. This means the shell is placed in the mobility base so the footbed is positioned
away from the handle bar and the occupant is facing the rear of the vehicle.
3.To reduce the potential of injury to vehicle occupants, mobility device mounted accessories, such as
trays and respiratory equipment, should be removed and secured separately.
4.Postural supports and positioning devices should not be relied on for occupant restraint.
5.Do not alter or substitute mobility device frame parts, components or seating.
6.Sudden stops or impacts may structurally damage your stroller. Mobility devices involved in such
incidents should be replaced.
B. ANTI-TIP TUBES
Anti-tip tubes can help keep your mobility device from tipping. Do not remove the anti-tip tubes and
use in down position whenever the base is unfolded.
C.tray supports
1.Do not lift this product by its tray supports.
2.Do not rest drinks on tray supports.
D. CUSHIONS
This mobility device's seating was designed for comfort and postural support. If seating component modifications are necessary, consult your therapist or clinician.

VI.
warning s for com p on e nt s & o p tion s
E. FASTENERS
Many of the screws, screws and nuts on this product are special high-strength fasteners. ONLY use
fasteners provided by an authorized supplier (or ones of the same type and strength, as indicated
by the markings on the heads), do not over- or under-tightened fasteners, and If screws or screws
become loose, tighten them as soon as you can.
F. FOOTBEDS
1.At the lowest point, footbeds should be at least 2" off the ground. If set too low, footrest may
interfere with obstacles you may encounter during normal use.
2.Adjustment of the footbed may cause interference with the casters in some positions. This may
affect your ability to stear the Kart.
3.Avoid putting weight on the footbed. The mobility device may tip forward (or backward if shell has
been reversed).
4.Never lift this mobility device by the footbeds.
G. TIRES
Proper inflation extends the life of your tires and makes your mobility device easier to use. Do not
under- or over-inflate tires. Check weekly for proper inflation level, as listed on the tire side wall.
H.POSITIONING BELTS
Use positioning belts ONLY to help support the child's posture.
1.Make sure the rider does not slide down in the mobility device seat. The belts must be snug, but
must not be so tight that they interfere with breathing. You should be able to slide your open hand,
flat, between the belt and the rider.
2.Use positioning belts with a cooperative rider only. Make sure that you can remove the belts in an
emergency.
3.NEVER Use Positioning Belts:
•As a restraint.
•On a child who is comatose, agitated or is prone to seizures.
•As a motor vehicle restraint.

VI.
warning s for com p on e nt s & o p tion s
I.POWER DRIVE
Do not install a power drive on this product.
J. Attendant Handle
Your mobility device's attendant handle provides secure points for a caregiver to grasp the rear of this
Kart, to prevent a fall or tip over. Check to make sure handle is locked in place after adjusting height.
K. QUICK-RELEASE AXLES
If this product has quick-release axles, ensure that both quick-release rear axles are locked before
using this product. An axle is not locked until the quick-release button pops out fully. Quick-release
axles should be inspected for function and any signs of wear or bending.
L. WHEEL LOCKS
Never engage wheel locks to slow or stop this product when it is moving. To keep the rear wheels
from rolling, always engage both rear wheel locks when you transfer your child to or from this
mobility device. Make sure lock arms embed in tires at least 1/8" when locked.
M.MODIFIED SEATing SYSTEMS
Do not change the seating system of your Kart UNLESS you consult your health care professional.
N. UPHOLSTERY FABRIC
Replace worn or torn seating cover fabrics as soon as you can, and be aware that laundering or excess
moisture will reduce flame retardation of the fabric.

Use of any other types of lubricant tend to foul moving components
and may void warranty.
7. Check the wheel locks for proper operation. Rear wheels should skid rather than roll when pushed
with a child in the product.
8.If the release lever is not returning to its locked position or if the locking mechanisms are not
catching and locking the rear axil for transport, inspect them for any build up of dirt or grit. If dirt is
present, the parts may be washed with warm soapy water, dried thoroughly and then relubricated
with a teflon based lubricant from a bike shop or hardware store. Always check to assure this
procedure corrected the problem. If there is not a build up of dirt or grit, the lubricant will help
mechanisms function smoothly.
