Safety Guidelines
Your Burley® trailer is the leading choice of refined bicycle trailer
owners worldwide. Every effort has been made to ensure your
purchase is of top quality and proven design, ready to provide
you with many years and miles of happy, safe trailering.
Please go to www.burley.com or contact us at
burley @ burley.com to register your warranty information.
IMPORTANT: IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF with your BURLEY by
reading this entire manual before use. If you have any questions, please
contact YOUR AUTHORIZED BURLEY DEALER.
Introduction
Once you’ve done the initial assembly and read the safety
guidelines, you’re ready to go! Before trailering, be sure you have
the safety harness, seat belt, tow bar, trailer wheels and hitch
securely attached.
Note : Any reference to left or right is made in direction of travel,
as if you were sitting inside the trailer, looking forward.
WARNING
Bicycling with a trailer, and bicycling in general, can be hazardous.
Failure to observe any of the safety guidelines in this manual could
result in accident and serious injury or death.
1. Inspect and maintain your bicycle and trailer regularly. See “Safety Checklists”.
2. Because of the trailer’s additional weight, a bicycle pulling a
trailer is heavier and less responsive. Avoid sudden swerving,
rocks and curbs. Experiment with the loaded trailer in an
uncongested area until you become familiar with it.
3. The minimum age for the cyclist is 16 years.
4. The maximum trailer load limit for children and/or cargo is
75 lbs (34 kg in Europe ) for single trailers and
100 lbs (40 kg in Europe) for double trailers. Secure
children and/or cargo in the center, forward of the axle and
as low as possible.
5. The trailer seat is intended for 1 or 2 children who are old
enough to wear helmets, sit upright and alone, and with
adequate neck strength to hold their heads upright while
trailering. A physician should evaluate anyone who is of
questionable developmental age for trailering.
6. The maximum age for passengers is 6 years. Never carry a
child whose sitting height (with helmet) is above the roll bar.
7. Fasten the seat belt and shoulder harnesses so that each
child is held securely. Seat a single child in the center.
Periodically check the placement of the shoulder straps,
especially on sleeping children.
BURLEY CHILD TRAILER OWNER’S INSTRUCTION AND SAFETY MANUAL
|
8. Make sure children cannot put a finger into the
wheel spokes.
9. Instruct children not to bounce or lean, as a weight shift
could cause the trailer to tip over.
10.To protect children from flying debris, always use your cover.
Open or close the window cover to keep your children
comfortable. Never leave children unattended. Check
children frequently, especially during hot or cold weather.
11.Observe recommended speeds: a maximum of
15 mph (24 km/h) on smooth, straight roads and
5 mph (8 km/h) or less when turning or on uneven roads. 12.Set your parking brake before removing your children
or cargo.
13.Never pull your trailer with a motorized vehicle.
14.Cyclist and passengers must wear helmets.
15.Only use factory-supplied wheels, with the tires inflated
to the pressure recommended on the tire side wall. Check
pressure before each use. Do not use higher-pressure or
knobby tires.
16.Clamp the hitch securely to the bicycle frame, and check for
a tight attachment before each ride.
17.Use the safety flag.
18.Do not make alterations to the trailer. Contact your
Authorized Burley Dealer for replacement of any damaged,
worn-out or missing parts.
19.Do not use your trailer on icy roads or when inclement
weather makes cycling hazardous.
20.The use of a mirror on your bicycle is recommended.
21.For emergencies, breakdowns or flat tires, pull completely off
the road and move your children to a safe area before doing repairs.
