STEP 1: Lift the trailer back so the right side is up, and locate the right wheel.
STEP 2: Install the wheel axle by sliding the axle completely through the bracket
in the frame as shown.
STEP 3: Insert the Quick Release Pin (tethered to the trailer frame near the wheel bracket)
through the hole in the axle and lock the clip to secure the pin.
STEP 4: Repeat for the left wheel. When complete, give each of the wheels a tug to be sure
that they are secure.
NOTE:
Wheels must be properly installed with quick release pins closed and snapped shut. If QR pins are not correctly attached, wheels may fall off. Do not use if QR pins are missing, or if the closure is damaged or missing.
WARNING!:
Check wheels periodically during and before each use to be sure that they have not
become loose. Failure to do so could result in SERIOUS INJURY to you or trailer’s occupants.
ATTACHING THE FOUR SEASON COVER

Position the four-season cover over the trailer where roll-up window is facing towards the front side of the trailer. (Fig.12).
STEP 2: Wrap the Velcro backed fixing straps and secure the cover around the frame.

TRAILER MAINTENANCE
Your trailer will give you many years of service with minimal care. To ensure safe and dependable
operation, we recommend the following regular maintenance. Before each ride:
STEP 1:
Check all fasteners to make sure that they are tight, and tighten or replace as needed.
STEP 2: Make sure that wheels are fully secure on the frame. Wheels must be fully inserted to lock in place.
STEP 3: Check tires for wear and proper inflation as listed on the tire sidewall. Use only hand-operated
pump to avoid tire damage. Under- or over inflation can result in unsafe handling.
STEP 4: Double check hitch attachment, making sure that QR Pin is locked, and that safety strap is in place.
STEP 5: Check harness strap for wear, and made sure that buckles lock properly.
ANNUALLY: AS NEEDED: Once a year, or sooner if needed, have the trailer inspected by a qualified bicycle mechanic for signs of wear or needed adjustment.
Trailer can be cleaned with a mild detergent and water. Do not remove seat or cover for washing. Do not use harsh chemicals or water, as they may damage fabrics or the frame materials or surfaces.
