A MacLaren stroller folds in a simple method. The actual folding process is easy to do, but you may find it difficult to remember how the steps go when you first try. This step by step guide will help you learn how to fold a MacLaren stroller like a pro!
Steps on How to Fold a Maclaren Stroller
Step 1. First, start by pressing the red button on the side of one of the handles. This will allow you to remove it from the stroller and keep it in your hand so you can fold up each half separately.
Step 2. These are both connected with elastic bands that need to be pulled back before pulling them apart completely. When removing these, make sure not to pull too hard as they tend to snap if they’re tugged too aggressively.
Step 3. Next, take hold of one end of an open frame and push down while simultaneously pushing inward. You should hear or feel some movement when this is done correctly. Repeat this step for both sides until there’s no space left between panels but what remains is still joined at various points.
Step 4. Fold the panels up from one side, and then fold them over to meet in the middle. This should create a triangular shape with all three parts connected by elastic bands at different points on each panel.
Step 5. Repeat this step for both sides until you’re left with two pieces that can be folded together like an accordion or opened flat for storage of various items underneath such as shopping bags.
Step 6. Flip it over so that the wheels are facing downward and then place your hands alongside either edge of any single panel. Push towards yourself while simultaneously pulling back until there’s space between how far apart they were originally set. Repeat this step if necessary, but make sure not to pull too hard as these have been known to snap when over-stretched.
How to assemble a Maclaren stroller
The first thing you need to do is take the lower frame and place it on your lap. Now, lift the handlebar so that it’s in an upright position – this should be how the seat will look like when you’re finished assembling.
Next, grab both sides of any panel (again, make sure not to pull too hard) and fold them towards each other while making sure they are still aligned with all four panels from inside out.
Place one side under or over another depending on how big the gap is between how far apart they were originally set. Continue doing this until there are no gaps left between how far apart they were originally set; then push down on the side of the panel you are holding to create a crease.
How to Operate a MacLaren Techno XT?
The MacLaren Techno XT is a great stroller that can be used for babies from six months old or older. There are many different features on the Techno XT which make it stand out in comparison to other strollers produced by Maclaren such as how easy it is to fold, and how smooth the ride feels when you go over bumps with this model.
Step One: Unclip Swing-away Footrests – The first step of folding your MacLaren Techno XT involves removing swing-away footrests before continuing onto steps two and three. To remove these feet rest clips simply press down on both sides simultaneously until they release; then lift off of wheels at the same time while pushing back towards handlebars.
This will free up the wheels of your stroller so you can fold it.
Make sure to keep a hold on these clips as they may fall out of place and get misplaced if not held onto properly or set in their rightful spot when finished folding.
For easier access, make sure to remove any items that are stored underneath the seat before continuing with steps two and three.
Step Two: Fold Handlebars Downwards – There is really no trick to this step; simply grab both handles at one side (either left or right) with each hand and slowly move them downwards until they meet together on top of the other handlebar which should be stationary by now due to how far down you have pulled it from Step One.
Once they are in place on top of the stationary handlebar, take your hands off and allow them to fall into their natural position (one on each side) with the bars now lying flat against one another like how you would see a ladder or gate when it is closed or finished being folded up.
Step Three: Fold Seat Inward – Now that both handles have been successfully moved down so they lie flat with one another, all that needs to be done at this point is to fold the seat inward towards yourself by grabbing hold of its edge from underneath and pushing it towards where you will then need to grip onto either end section for stability which can also be accomplished by pressing down gently as if performing a push-up motion while holding on to the handles of the Maclaren stroller.
Step Four: Fold Seat Inward – Now that both handles have been successfully moved down so they lie flat with one another, all that needs to be done at this point is to fold the seat inward towards yourself by grabbing hold of its edge from underneath and pushing it towards where you will then need to grip onto either end section for stability which can also be accomplished by pressing down gently as if performing a push-up motion while holding on to the handles of the Maclaren stroller.
