The Maclaren Quest stroller is a fantastic product for parents who want to easily manoeuvre their baby around with one hand. The only problem is that it can be difficult to find the right recline settings, especially if you are adjusting it while your child is in the stroller. To help with this dilemma, we have created an easy-to-follow guide on how to recline a Maclaren Quest stroller!
Steps on How to Recline a Maclaren Quest Stroller
Place the child in the stroller, but do not recline it. Measure how much space is between the back of their head and the seat. If there are more than two inches (about five centimetres), then you have found your correct setting! You can now fold up any extra fabric on both sides to ensure that they are comfortable and safe for a long car ride or stroll around town.
How much does the Maclaren Quest weigh?
A Maclaren Quest stroller weighs about 11 lbs.
The Maclaren Quest is an excellent choice for parents looking for a lightweight and portable, yet sturdy option to push their baby or toddler around town. This particular model can be folded up with one hand and features a four-wheel suspension that helps the wheels glide over any terrain!
Additionally, you’ll find it has several amenities such as a padded seat that reclines back 120 degrees (great for naps!) plus an adjustable leg rest that moves forward to adjust to your growing child’s height! The best feature of this stroller? It only weighs 16 pounds!!!
How to assemble Maclaren Quest stroller
Maclaren Quest strollers include the frame, wheels and a few other small pieces that need to be assembled. The instructions are easy to follow with large, clear pictures of each step:
Step 1. Take out all parts from the box – note there will be two boxes inside
Step 2. Assemble the front right side wheel (explains how and where) then continue assembling in order until you have completed attaching all four wheels and managed seat backrest canopy bars on either side.
Step 3. Once complete your quest is ready for its maiden voyage!
How reclining Maclaren Quest Stroller works
With one hand push down on the handlebar located at the top centre of the rear seat while simultaneously pulling up on the handlebar attached to the seatback, reclining it.
Push down on the front right wheel located at the top centre of the rear seat while simultaneously pulling up on the left side lever (situated next to where your baby will be sitting) and adjust wheels accordingly so they are pointing in a forward direction for easy manoeuvring
To lock wheels into place press the plastic button found under each wheel mechanism
You’ll know your Maclaren quest is locked when you hear a click sound. This means that all four wheels have been secured and can now withstand any terrain!
The key to this stroller’s ease of navigation lies in its ability to convert from an upright position with wheels positioned vertically, à la bicycle mode, allowing easy, quick movement over any surface to reclined position with wheels positioned horizontally, à la jogger mode.
The Quest has a two-stage hood that can be pulled up and down for added sun protection or wind protection where needed: the taller section is specifically designed for when your baby is sitting upright in their seat while the shorter section allows you to keep an eye on them even when they are lying back enjoying some me time!
How do I close the Maclaren Quest arc?
The Quest has elasticated, adjustable straps to keep your little one cosy and secure. Tighten up the straps so they are snug around your baby’s waist, shoulders and chest; then you can loosen them if need be for comfort.
To recline: press down on both handles at the same time (one on either side of the seat) until it is horizontal and then release once desired position is achieved. Reclining can also be done individually by pressing down a single handle until you reach this desired position.
Be sure not to over tighten since this could cause discomfort or restrict breathing as well as impede their ability to safely get in and out of their stroller when it is in the reclined position. To lock: press down on both handles at the same time and hold until it clicks into place.
