In Motion
Stroller Care
• Steering your stroller is simple: it’s balanced to
turn with just a light touch on the handlebar.
For tighter turns, push down on the handlebar
and raise the front wheel to steer.
• You can machine wash your stroller’s seat in cold water with a mild detergent.
To minimize shrinkage, simply reattach the seat to the frame to dry.
(Please do not put the seat in the dryer!)
• Be sure to remove the board from the back of the seat
before washing.
Wrist Strap
• Make sure wrist strap is around your wrist whenever
your baby is in the stroller. The Baby Jogger is
lightweight and ready to roll – with or without you – and
the wrist strap helps you gain control over your stroller.
• You may clean the stroller frame using a soft, dry cloth, and
an occasional spray of household wax will maintain its
healthy glow.
Wheel Care
In the Dark
• Since we are concerned about the safety of you and your
baby, we recommend that you not use your stroller at
night. However, if you choose to, please attach
reflective strips to the wheel spokes and the seat.
Bicycle lights can also be mounted on the handlebar.
• Moisture – especially from the beach – can rust the wheel bearing case.
Spraying regularly with a silicone lubricant will keep your wheels looking healthy.
• Also, if you jog massive amounts of miles, your stroller will benefit from a
yearly visit to the bike shop for wheel alignment. Refer to the number
on the tire wall for the optimum pressure for your tires.
• Sunshine can fade seat fabric and dry out tires, so storing
your stroller indoors will prolong its good looks. However,
if you do store it outside, using a tarp will protect against
weather wear.
