Bob strollers are a great way to give your little one the freedom of exploring while still keeping them safe and secure. But how do you collapse it? It’s actually very easy, but some steps should be followed for it to go smoothly. Here is how to use a Bob Stroller.
Steps on Collapsing Bob Stroller
Step 1. First, remove the seat from the stroller. If you’re using a double Bob Stroller then both seats should be removed. This will make it easier to collapse and take up less space in your vehicle or trunk.
Step 2. Next, if possible, detach any attachments that are connected by clips such as car seat straps or baby’s snack tray.
Step 3. Fold the stroller’s frame so that it lies flat against its side with one wheel resting on top of the other wheel, and then bring in each end towards the centre to create a long rectangle shape.
Step 4. With both hands grab both ends of how you’ve created your rectangle shape and push down hard until all four wheels are touching the ground for added stability.
How do you fold a BOB stroller car seat adapter?
Step 1. First, remove the adapters from either end of your frame. If possible detach any attachments that are connected by clips such as car seat straps or baby’s snack tray.
Step 2. Next, if possible, loosen one side of the wheel so it can rotate on its axis and lay flat against the other tire for stability. Then, with both hands grab how you’ve created your rectangle shape at each ends next to where the wheels meet and push down hard until all four tires touch the ground for added stability.
You should now have two rectangles in front of you; one containing two tires and another containing just one tire on top of its partner (you can now detach the attachments if you’d like).
Step 3. Finally, use both hands to grab how your rectangle shape at each ends next to where the wheels meet and push down hard until all four tires touch the ground for added stability.
How do you put the front wheel on a BOB stroller?
Step 1. With one hand, hold open the handlebar clamp. With your other hand, use two fingers to push down and pull back on both sides of the tire’s rim at once (not too hard or else you’ll damage it) until they snap in place.
Step 2. Adjust this by pushing outwards from either side with your fingertips so that it fits snugly but not tightly around the metal spokes underneath.
This should be done twice for each side before adjusting how far apart they are horizontally using an Allen wrench inserted into slots found between them (a third slot can also be used if needed).
Step 3. Close off any loose ends by threading through loops with a string attached to them and then tying in a knot.
How do you deep clean a BOB stroller?
You will need: A water hose, a plastic bag with holes for the wheels and openings for the handles, dish soap or laundry detergent (preferably none containing fabric softener), an old toothbrush or scrub brush.
The Steps to Deep Cleaning Your BOB Stroller:
Submerge your stroller in a big bowl of warm soapy water filled halfway up its height by pouring it through one of the openings at one end. Let soak 15 minutes before removing.
Rinse thoroughly from all angles using lukewarm running tap water mixed with a few drops of white vinegar if you have any on hand as this helps strip away grease due to how acidic it is., then shake off excess water.
Use the toothbrush or scrub brush to gently scrub all surfaces and crevices, including any fabric that is exposed during the folding of the stroller (such as handles).
Hang your BOB in a well-ventilated area upside down with plastic bags taped around its wheels so that it drips dry for at least 24 hours before using again.
If needed, repeat steps until satisfied with how clean your device looks!
When can I stop using the BOB stroller?
Generally, people will stop using their BOB stroller once they’ve stopped having children or when the kids are too big to fit in it. However, as you can see from how easy it is to clean and maintain your BOB stroller, there’s really no need to throw yours out just because a little one has grown up!
If the fabric on your BOB starts looking worn or tattered over time (even if this isn’t due solely to how well you’ve cleaned it!), then consider replacing that part of the frame with a new replacement cover.
How do you clean a moldy Bob stroller?
The outside of the Bob stroller should be cleaned with mild soap and water immediately after each use. It is also a good idea to wipe down any surfaces, fabric or metal parts that come in contact with your baby’s skin before cleaning them thoroughly as well.
The inside of the frame can be wiped out by using a cloth or paper towel dampened with warm soapy water. Be sure not to place anything other than these items into the frame during this process!
To remove mold from deeper areas, you may need to scrub those spots more vigorously. If that doesn’t work on its own for stubborn stains, try adding some bleach (or hydrogen peroxide) to help dissolve it away.
