SAFETY GUIDELINES:
Think Safety First! Check the working condition of both bicycle and trailer before every use. If you discover broken
components, misalignments, or missing parts, correct the problem prior to use.
PLEASE FOLLOW THESE SAFETY GUIDELINES WHEN USING YOUR TRAILER:
•This trailer is intended only for transport of children and cargo in the manner as described in the following pages of the owners’ manual. Use of the trailer apart from these guidelines is not recommended, and may result in injury or damage to the trailer or the bicycle.
•Inspect the trailer and its parts before and after each use. Proper maintenance of the trailer is essential to safety.
•When assembling the trailer, make sure that wheels are correctly and securely installed as described in the
assembly instructions. If you are not familiar with the type of wheels used on this trailer, contact your place of
purchase or a reputable bicycle shop to receive instruction in the correct operation of these devices. Inflate tires to
35-40 PSI (between 2.5 and 3.5 bar) and check air pressure before each use. Over inflation may cause the trailer to bounce or turn over. Use only tires with street tread, and not with BMX or Knobby tread.
•Be sure that the bicycle used with the trailer is in good working condition, is appropriate in size and type to pull the cycle trailer, and has good brakes. Refer to the bicycle owners’ manual for any advice regarding use of the bicycle with a trailer. A bicycle shop can help you with the inspection to determine if your bike is of the correct type to use with the trailer, and with routine maintenance of the cycle and the trailer.
•Do not overload the trailer. The load limit for cargo and passengers is 100 LB. Position the load as low as possible
and center it within the trailer (front to rear, and left to right). Any extra gear should be placed towards the rear. All load should be secured so that it does not shift. Instruct children riding in the trailer not to bounce, rock or lean. Such movements may cause the trailer to lean or flip.
•When fully loaded, the Drawbar load measured at the hitch should be between 6-16 LB. This can be verified by lifting the tow bar of the loaded trailer before attaching the trailer to the bicycle.Make sure parking brakes are engaged when loading trailer.
•Do not attempt to install other seating systems in this trailer. It is not designed for car seats, stroller seats, infant beds, or any other type of seating. Use of any seating system other than the original equipment seat will void the warranty, and may result in damage to the trailer or injury to the passenger.
•Never take this trailer off-road. It is intended for use on paved road surfaces. Use in any other conditions may result in damage to the product or injury to the passengers.
Pulling this trailer alters the operation of the bicycle. Stopping, starting, and turning are affected, depending on the
weight of the cargo. To familiarize yourself with the changes, load the trailer to capacity and practice in a safe area. Do
not use your trailer until you have become accustomed to how it affects your bicycle handling. Further safety strategies
include the following:
•Never assume you will be given the right of way.
•Do not try to predict the actions of car drivers.
•Do not travel on highways, busy streets, or in areas unsafe for bicycling.
•Avoid riding at night. If you must ride at night, use lights and bright, reflective clothing. Do not ride at night with
children in the trailer. Before use, consult your local authorities to determine appropriate lighting and safety
requirements to conform to traffic code.
•To prevent overturning your trailer, do not pull over curbs or holes or hit obstacles in the roadway.
•Do not turn sharply, because trailer may turn over.
•Do not travel at high speeds.
•Do not exceed 15 MPH, slow for turns and rough road conditions. High speeds adversely affect your ability to control the bike and notice road irregularities. Braking distances are increased when pulling a trailer.
•Never take the trailer off road. It is designed for use on paved roadways. Off road use may result in damage to trailer or injury to passengers.
INSTRUCTIONAL
OWNER’S MANUAL
The safety of your child is of great concern. The trailer seat is intended for passengers older than 12 months and able
to wear an approved helmet. Your child must be able to hold his head upright. Check with your pediatrician to make
sure your child’s development makes him or her a suitable passenger in the trailer. Helmets are recommended for
all passengers, and may be required by law. Please check national and local laws regarding trailers and helmet use
prior to operation. Make sure that your child is seated securely and the harness is properly engaged. The child’s sitting
height should be below the upper crossbar, and the correct shoulder strap height must be used. Refer to the instructions to adjust. The four-season cover must be fitted when children are in the trailer. This protects the child from road
debris.
