Trailering Safety
Guidelines
or death.
1. Inspect and maintain your bicycle and trailer regularly. See
“Safety Checklists”.
2. This trailer is designed for one pet up to 75 lbs./27.9 kg.
Never carry a larger pet, as the extra weight and higher
center of gravity may cause the trailer to tip over.
3. 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 your pet in the trailer by
taking short trips in an uncongested area until you both are
accustomed to the trailer. Train your animal companion to
sit or lie when the trailer is in motion. Never tow an excitable
pet, as they may lunge or jump, causing the trailer to tip over.
To protect your pet from jumping from the moving trailer
always use your cover and never leave your pet unattended.
4. Observe recommended speeds: a maximum of 15
mph/24km/h on smooth, straight roads, and 5 mph/8km/h
or less when turning or on uneven roads.
5. Never use your pet trailer for transporting people.
6. Never pull your Burley trailer with a motorized vehicle.
7. Use only the factory-supplies wheels, with the tires inflated
to pressure recommended on tire sidewall. Check the tires
before each use.
8. Clamp the hitch securely to the bicycle frame, and check for
a tight attachment before each ride.

9. Never use the trailer if it is damaged in any way. Do not
make modifications, as alterations may result in a structurally
unsound and unstable trailer.

Safety Checklists
Maintenance and Storage
Before Each Ride:
Hitch and Tow Bar Maintenance
lWheels
Store trailer indoors if possible. Do not use or store trailer at
temperatures below 32˚F (0° C), as hitch flex connector can
become brittle and possibly break, causing accident resulting in
serious injury.
tightly attached

lLocked retaining pin for tow bar
lBicycle safety check, especially brakes and tires
lHelmet for cyclist
