Having a Maclaren stroller is great. It’s lightweight and easy to fold up, which makes it perfect for travelling with. But what about the canopy? Did you know that there is an easy way to remove the canopy from your Maclaren stroller? This blog post will show you how to do it!
Steps on How to Remove Maclaren Stroller Canopy
Step 1. Remove all of the fittings from the canopy. These are located on either side and under the handlebar. Unclip any hooks that hold it in place at the bottom, behind one of your front wheels or at a back wheel.
Step 2. Lift and tilt forward to take the weight off of suspension wires, then use a cable tie to fasten these together so they don’t unravel through stroller fabric when you remove the canopy roof frame later. The lower clips will be visible now–remove them too if needed (if you have an older model).
Step 3. Holding onto both sides of ceiling mesh with each hand, pull straight upwards until it pops out from underneath the top wire hoop for the canopy roof frame.
Step 4. Unclip any remaining hooks that hold the sides of the canopy fabric to either side wire hoop, then pull these apart and down so you can remove them from their position on top of the handlebar.
Step 5. Now use two hands to push up on both ends of the metal ceiling mesh until it pops out from underneath the bottom wire hoop for umbrella cover in middle–if one end will not come free while the other is easily removed, try pulling with your teeth or another object like a screwdriver between loops where these lower wire hoops are clipped together (not recommended).
You should now be able to see clips holding Maclaren stroller’s upper base onto its wheels (or suspension system) at the point near where it joins onto handlebars–pull these clips off to release canopy.
Step 6. Unclip and remove the lower wire hoop that secures the umbrella cover in the middle of this Maclaren stroller’s fabric top (it should be easier than removing the upper one. Pull back both sides of the metal mesh ceiling panel and reach up inside.
Find your hands are next to some really long, thin pieces which can only mean you’ve found your way into a maze made by bunches of nylon cords! You might need help from another person with better dexterity or patience for such tasks as untangling knots before finally pulling on the cord at the bottom left corner nearest where you entered.
To get out without tangling yourself up, follow the same path. Lower the metal ceiling panel back into place. Clip-in both lower and upper wire hoops to secure cover.
How to Assemble Maclaren Quest Stroller
Many Maclaren Quest stroller owners find it difficult to assemble the stroller. The process is complicated by many pieces, small screws and springs. This guide will break down the steps involved in assembling a Maclaren Stroller so you can put yours together more easily.
Step One: Unboxing Your Purchased Product
Open up your box of the new product that you just purchased from Amazon or some other retailer where they have shipped this item to your brand new out of its packaging material with all parts included inside for assembly at homes such as these directions (the instructions booklet) and hardware like nuts, bolts and washers which are necessary for building this product before it’s ready to be used
Look for the instruction booklet and find a comfy place to sit down like on your couch or at a desk with all of these parts laid out in front of you – including the hardware package which includes nuts, bolts and washers. The instructions will walk you through each step along the way without needing to guess how this goes together.
Once you have completed assembling our stroller it’s time for final assembly – attach those two metal pieces that come with their own Allen wrench into screws on either side as instructed by these directions (the instruction book)
Step Two: Assemble Your Maclaren Stroller Frame:
Grab one piece from the bag containing four small screws which is the one that has a long, skinny metal piece attached to it. Place this screw through the hole in the back of our frame and use your Allen wrench to tighten down Â¼ turn until the head is flush with the bar – be sure not to over tighten as you will strip out these holes!
Repeat for all four pieces on both sides of the frame without moving any part around or backwards so they are aligned like shown in the photo below: Grab left side front wheel axle from a bag containing two small screws which should have come with its own Allen wrench.
Put it through centre slot of the right side triangle brace and securely attach it using washers then nut/bolt (followed by another was her) Â¼ turn until it’s tight and secure. Repeat for the left side. Place a screw through the hole in the back of the frame, over the top bar. Tighten down with Allen wrench (be careful not to strip out this hole!)
Put a washer on one end of bolts/screws from a bag containing two screws which should have come with its own Allen wrenches. Secure them using a nut or bolt (followed by another washer) Â½ turn until they’re tightly secured at both ends – be sure not to over tighten as you will strip these holes! Do same for another set of four pieces that are now aligned like shown in the photo below:
Grab front wheel axle. Pull the axle-back until it pops out of the left adapter. Repeat for the right side. Pop wheel axles into adapters on frame (be sure not to over tighten as you will strip these holes!) – Push down with your hand while holding the release button firmly in place.
Keep pressing ‘release’ and push the handle up, allowing front wheels to come off their axles now that they are aligned properly. The Maclaren stroller canopy should be removed! Enjoy the rest of this helpful article on how to remove a Maclaren Stroller Canopy!
