The Chicco Activ3 is the ultimate travel system for your baby. The stroller includes a Chicco keyfit 30 infant car seat, making it easy to take your little one with you on all of life’s adventures. Assembling this stroller can be tricky though, so we’ve laid out how to assemble the Chicco Activ3 Stroller in 10 steps!
Steps on How to Assemble the Chicco Activ3 Stroller
Step 1. Lay the stroller out on a flat surface with the seat facing you. Place one foot under each side of the handlebar and lift to pull it from underneath.
Step 2. Push down on either side of the front wheel frame so that both wheels pop into place. Find left or right-hand strap: this is how you will carry your little one in, once they are older enough for their legs to reach around your waist (approximately 12 months).
If unable to find a belt clip, undo the bottom buckle and use the looped end as carrying handles instead! This can be done until the baby’s legs are long enough to fit inside the recessed area at top of the backrest when seated in the child tray/seat.
Step 3. With one hand, pull back on the footrest until it clicks into place.
Step 4. Push and hold the button at top of the canopy to open – allow a few seconds for canopy fabric to stretch outwards before releasing the button. If unable to release the button, find a red plastic loop located just under this area that can be pulled outward to push and release the button from outside.

Step three: Raise the seat backrest and tighten the strap around the headrest, continue to push on top of the canopy fabric until it is fully retracted under the stroller handlebar.
Step four: Push down on both sides of the front wheel while lifting at rear wheels simultaneously so that they are parallel with ground level. Continue pushing downwards until you hear a clicking sound and can’t feel any resistance from pedals or handles.
How to close a Chicco activ3 stroller
You should always clean and dry your Chicco Activ³ stroller before folding it.
Step one: After cleaning, leave the canopy open so that air can circulate the fabric to help with drying. Remove all items from the basket including any trays or cups on the tray bar in front of the seat unit.
Step Two: Open both sides of footrests fully by pulling straight outwards until they are as far away from each other as possible then push in towards the centre-line while pushing down to lock into place.
Step Three: Release the brake pedal and release tensioned straps holding seats together using fingers only so that you don’t damage them by dragging against a plastic clip nearby which holds wheel rods up in their slots when a folded position is reached (shown below).
Push handles downwards and towards the centreline, then pull back on the front edge of seats to release from slots.

How to fold a jogging stroller
Folding a jogging stroller is very similar to how you would fold most other types of baby gear. There are some important things to remember when folding any type of stroller, so following these steps will ensure your next use goes off without a hitch.
Step One: Check that the wheels are fully open for them not to get caught on anything and cause damage. Open both sides of footrests fully by pulling straight outwards until they are as far away from each other as possible then push in towards the centre-line while pushing down to lock into place.
Step Two: Release the brake pedal and release the tensioned strap under handlebars using fingertips only so that you don’t drag it against the metal hook. Pivot handlebars towards the back until you hear a click then swing up.
Step Three: With the frame in front of you, align both sides so that the side with pivot clip is on your right and left-hand side has footrests in place. Pull one strap from each side over either end of the metal hook to secure it into place.
If necessary, use the same step for the opposite handhold and pull straps over other ends of metal hooks to lock them securely into position as well.
Pull outwards on handles at the top and fold down until they are flat against the main seat bar underneath (keep away from the stroller).
How do you buckle a baby in a Chicco stroller?
Step one: open the seat-back by lifting on the red handle located at top of the backrest.
Step two: fold down and release both sides of footrests fully then push in towards the centerline while pushing down to lock into place.
Step three: position child’s feet through openings provided for them (these are usually near the lower edge of footrest) ensuring that they can’t slip out or kick off their shoes, secure little toes behind the metal bar with either side of buckle strap as shown below.
Place straps over shoulders so that you have enough length to comfortably reach buckles without straining your wrists when doing up under the baby’s bottom after inserting each arm through its respective opening.
