This post is a step-by-step guide on how to collapse a Baby Trend Expedition stroller. As with any product, you must know the proper way to care for your investment and this article will show you how.
Steps on How to Collapse a Baby Trend Expedition Stroller
Step 1. Locate the release latch, which is on the side of your stroller. Pull and hold down firmly until it releases.
Step 2. Releasing one side will allow you to collapse half of the frame at a time – start with whichever side seems most convenient for you (left or right).
Step 3. Once released, pull up on each handlebar and push down on the seat’s footrests. This should cause your baby stroller to fold in half so that it can fit into its carrying bag easier.
Lower both handles back down onto the ground, ensuring they are not too high off of the surface as this will make folding more difficult later; if necessary adjust them accordingly by pulling outward from either handlebar.
Step 4. Place the carrying bag over your shoulder and pull on it to make sure that both handles are inside of their top opening. You can then use the straps at either end for a comfortable carry or put one strap across your chest with the opposite strap in hand, allowing you to steady and move about easily.
Step 5. Finally, take hold of each side of the stroller frame (where they meet) and fold them together so that they form an angle shape, following any padded guides as necessary; this will allow you to fit it into its smaller case more easily than if left unfolded.
From here, place your fingers around where they meet once again before pushing down firmly until nothing moves – this should secure everything nicely! Now simply zip up the case and you are done.
How to disinfect a stroller
The Baby Trend Expedition Stroller is great for everyday use and outings where you need to take your baby with you. Here’s how to keep it looking good as new!
Step One: How to clean the frame
Any dirt, dust or pet hair must be removed from these surfaces before applying disinfectant product.
Firstly, remove any loose debris by sweeping away all surface matter using a soft-bristled brush; then wipe down thoroughly using warm soapy water (avoiding the brake pedal).
Rinse off and dry completely with paper towels. Remember not to wash this part of the stroller in the dishwasher or washing machine – even at low temperatures! This will damage components on the frame which are not designed to be dishwasher-safe.
Step Two: How to clean the seat fabric and padding
The seat of your Baby Trend Expedition can also get dirty with use, so you must wash them at least once a month or more if required – just like for your child!
To clean your stroller seat, first, remove any loose debris by sweeping away all surface matter using a soft-bristled brush; then wipe down thoroughly using warm soapy water (avoiding brake pedal).
Rinse off and dry completely with paper towels. To avoid damaging delicate fabrics, do not put seats in the washing machine or the dishwasher even at low temperatures as this will damage components on the frame which are not designed to be dishwasher safe.
Fixing The Stroller After Cleaning
Step 1. Now that you have a clean and dry seat, it’s time to put the frame back together. Start by placing the front wheel into its groove on top of the pedal column.
Ensure both are locked in place with feet holding them steady while you turn each until they click securely into position – you may need someone else to do this part if not able to reach over the head easily using your hands only (elderly or very tall people).
Step 2. Next, make sure all joints are properly aligned before beginning assembly. Lay down the flat base piece so that it has four small bumps at each corner corresponding with slots located on bottom side of joint pieces.
Align these bumps over their respective slots and then push firmly upwards towards one another until both joints click. You should hear a snapping sound if it is properly locked in place. Next, take the joint piece that has two slots on either side and align them over the base piece so that they have corresponding bumps to their slot counterparts found on the other joint pieces (remember to push together firmly).
Step 3. Finally, snap one more small leg into the matching slot located at top corner of the previous assembled joint pieces with remaining three legs now extending downwards from this last section as well.
Place foot or weight onto the bottom side of these additional four legs while pushing upwards once again until another clicking noise can be heard indicating all six parts are securely attached – you will need someone else for this part too if an able-bodied person is not available!
Once all joints are attached, press down on the centre bar of the collapsed stroller frame to make it pop up into its full form.
