The Quinny Zapp Xtra is a popular stroller. The only downside to it is that attaching a carseat adapter can be tricky. In this blog post, we will show you how to attach a carseat adapter and then give some tips for using it with your Quinny Zapp Xtra.
Steps on How to Attach a Carseat Adapter to a Quinny Zapp Xtra
Step 1. Assemble the carseat adapter and attach it to your Quinny Zapp Xtra. Make sure that you have all of the pieces necessary for attaching a carseat, including shoulder straps, chest clips, LATCH connectors.
The angle should be around 45 degrees from horizontal if using an infant seat (this is about halfway up on most stroller handles). The bottom part of this post will show pictures so you can see what we mean by this.*
Step 2. Take off any safety belts or harnesses on the back of your child’s carseat first to keep them safe while they are being strapped into the adapter. Next, put both shoulders and then one clip behind their head as shown below:
The shoulder straps should be threaded through the car seat’s harness. The chest clip should go over their chest and under both arms as shown below:*
Step 3. Put the LATCH connectors in place on your stroller so that they are facing outwards, then snap them into each other.
Thread one of the two shoulder straps onto a metal hook before grabbing it with your hand and securing it to an eyelet on the adapter connector. Repeat for the second strap coming from the opposite side of the car seat or child, whichever is easier (for left-handed parents start with the right side; vice versa).
Step 4. Snap any clips together if necessary to secure everything tightly for when you load your baby up! This step can also apply by securing the straps to your stroller’s waist belt.
Step 5. Position car seat as needed for loading, then with one hand on each strap – typically left hand over right – pull evenly and firmly until you feel resistance from both sides of the adapter connector.
Step 6. Turn back towards the handles in a pusher position while still pulling steadily on both shoulder straps until they are snug against your chest and underarms, securing them tightly by rotating it 360 degrees counterclockwise.*
Note: This will lock down the LATCH system so that it cannot be disengaged or loosened accidentally during use.

How to remove the seat on a Quinny Zapp Flexx
To remove the seat, press down on both release buttons and unlatch them. You will then be able to lift on one side of the carseat (the side with two straps) to free it from those same two straps.
The other strap is not attached to anything so just let it hang freely while you work. Once loosened from all three points, slide or roll the carseat off of its base onto a flat surface like your floor or ground outside before moving forward with installation!

You can now flip over the top frame provided by pressing downward near where there are no hinges between either end until they release, and then pulling it towards you.
How much does a Quinny Zapp cost?

How do you fold a Quinny Zapp Xtra 2?
The Quinny Zapp Xtra folds up easily by following these steps:
Locate the buttons on either side of the frame and press them in at the same time. The wheels will automatically lock into position once you do this, so don’t worry about it for now.
Next, push down on the handle with your left hand while pulling upward from underneath with your right hand to release a spring that is keeping everything together! It should pop open like magic when you’re done.
if not, check all three points where straps are located (one near each end and one midway) just in case there’s still some tension holding things together.
