How do you unlock the wheels on a stroller?

Step 1. Unlock the wheels by moving them in a forward and backward direction until you feel or hear the click. How do you lock it? You can also move both wheels simultaneously in opposite directions to create that clicking sound; once they make this sound, hold them there for five seconds before releasing

Step 2. Try pushing on one of your stroller’s wheel locks with just enough pressure so that the other locked wheel is pushed down about an inch. After locking all four tires, check if they are tight enough by swivelling each tire side to side without letting go of either attachment point

Step 3. If any of these steps don’t work, take your buggy back to where you purchased it from (or find their website) – most places have a warranty, and their staff will be able to help you with any issues. If it is still under warranty then they may fix or replace the wheel for free.

You can also ask at your local bike shop if anyone there would know how to correctly tighten a wobbly stroller’s wheel. Most places should have some sort of service centre that can do this quickly – usually without charge!

How to Tighten it Back up

Hold onto the silver front wheel, while you use your fingers or a Phillips screwdriver to attach the opposite side. Once they are screwed together, flip them over and tighten them evenly with a Philips head wrench. Do not forget to check both sides!

If there is any wiggle once you have tightened everything, loosen the other connector until things feel right again. Check for wear on your wheel before reattaching the last set of screws in place.

 

How do you adjust the straps on a Nuna Mixx stroller?

The strap can be adjusted by pulling it through the buckle and then sliding to tighten or loosen. Make sure that there is no slack in the strap before fastening it back onto your child’s waist.

 

How often should I clean my Chicco Bravo Trio stroller?

You will want to wipe down any dirt, liquids, pet hair etc with baby wipes every single day for at least 20 seconds per side of the frame. It is normal for anything metal like wheels or screws to get a little bit rusty looking (even if they are coated) – this is just oxidation which can easily be removed with some elbow grease and regular cleaning.

 

Tips

We recommend that you clean the frame with a damp cloth and mild soap solution once per week or at least every two weeks if your child has food allergies, eczema, or any other skin condition. How often should I change my stroller’s tires?

You will want to check the air pressure in all four of your wheels daily when possible; however, it is best to inflate them with an air pump weekly for better manoeuvrability and longevity of usage. For example: If one tire goes flat before the others – then you know that this particular wheel needs more pumping than usual.
