rear wheels.
To release, press down on the left side of the
red brack lever with your foot.

channel
IMPORTANT: ALWAYS TEST THAT THE
WHEEL HAS SECURELY ENGAGED IN THE
CHANNEL BEFORE USE. ENGAGED THE

Press down firmly on the tab until it locks
into place.

Your SNAP stroller can stand unaided for
easy storage.
HINT: WHILE NOT NECESSARY FOR
FOLDING, MOVING THE SEAT BACK
FIRST TO THE MOST UPRIGHT POSITION
AND FORWARD THROUGH THE FRAME
WILL MAKE FOR THE MOST SIMPLE AND
COMPACT FOLDING.
6>BUMPER BAR

into the corresponding housing in the seat
frame until you hear it click into place.
The bumper bar can be opened as a “gate”
for easy access pressing on one of the

of the housing. For full removal, repeat this
process for the other side.
7>SEAT RECLINE
To recline: While squeezing the seat adjuster
tabs (l) together in a pincer like movement,
ease the seat down to the desired
position. Release the tabs and the seat will
automatically lock in that position
To incline: Place your hand in the centre of
the seat at the rear. Pull the incline strap (m)
while gently pushing the seat upward to the
desired position.
8>HARNESS
Your stroller harness is specifically designed
with many built in safety features.
This includes the requirement that, when
opened, all straps are released so that no
dangerous loops can be formed causing a
strangulation hazard.
WARNING: USE THIS HARNESS AT ALL
TIMES
Closing your harness:
Slide each of the shoulder strap bottom
guides (n) into the corresponding channel
(o) on the top of each side strap prong.
Insert each completed prong into the central
buckle housing (p).
Carefully adjust the harness straps to snugly
fit your child by adjusting the sliders (q)
located on each strap. The harness should
be fitted to your child’s body, tight enough
so that they cannot wriggle free of the straps
but, loose enough, so as not to cause any
discomfort.
IMPORTANT WARNING: WHEN NOT IN
USE, BE SURE THE SHOULDER AND WAIST
STRAPS ARE ALWAYS DISCONNECTED
FROM THE CENTRAL HOUSING AND EACH
OTHER.
9>EXPANDA HOOD
Your SNAP hood is designed to provide
maximum shade and comfort for your child
by incorporating our EXPANDA HOOD
section.
To increase/decrease the hood size
Open the EXPANDA HOOD section fully
using the zip (t)
Gently pull your hood forward; extending it
as far as is required.
When no longer needed, fold the EXPANDA
HOOD backward, allowing it to fold in on
itself.
Gently zip the section closed being mindful
not to catch any of the fabric in the zipper
teeth.
For even more flexibility, the height at which
your shoulder straps are fitted to the stroller
can be adjusted at 3 points. To change the
shoulder strap position:
Additional ventilation can be achieved by
rolling up the rear of the hood like a blind
and securing in the open position with the
toggle (u).
From the rear of the seat, thread the top of
the strap back through the harness slot (r)
by manoeuvring the locking ring so that it
fits through the slot.
10>TETHER STRAP
Rethread the strap back through the desired
slot from the front of the seat
Opening your harness:
Press the central housing button (s).
This will release both side prongs from the
central housing. The shoulder and waist
straps will release automatically from each
other.
If the shoulder and waist straps do not
automatically disengage from each other,
manually slide the guides of the waist
channels. Your harness will separate into 5
sections.
Your SNAP stroller is fitted with a handy
tether strap which helps keep your stroller
always within reach. Slip the tether cuff (v)
over your wrist and use the stroller normally.
