inserted to lock in place, Attempt to pull the wheel out without pushing the release button. Wheel should not move.

operated pump to avoid tire damage. Underinflation or overinflation can result in unsafe handling.

in place.
e. Check harness straps for wear, and make sure buckles lock properly
STEP 2: Annual check-up
a. Once a year, or sooner if needed, have the trailer inspected by a qualified bicycle mechanic
for signs of wear or needed adjustment.
STEP 3: As needed
a. Trailer can be clean with mild detergent and water. Do not remove the seat or cover for
washing. Do not use harsh chemicals or cleaners, as they may damage the fabrics or the
frame materials or surfaces.
PARKING BREAK
Your trailer is equipped with combination wheel guard/parking brakes for added safety. When loading or unloading or parking your trailer, engage the parking brakes to prevent the trailer from moving.
STEP 1: Figure 6a shows the brake mechanism on the trailer in normal unlocked position. In this case, the
locking lever faces forward , parallel to frame. The brake housing also acts as a wheel guard to
protect the wheel from direct contact with objects that might stop the wheel.
