Car seats

Q.  When should I remove the lumbar support cushion and the seat liner from the car capsule?

Q.  There is a lot of movement in my car seat?

A.  This can sometimes be caused by the fabric that is used on the cars car seat, such as leather, PU or slippery polyesters.

If this does not help, please make contact with a car seat restraint technician/installer who can assist with options to lessen the movement.

A.  If the degree of the car seat restraint is not at the desired 45 degree angle required this may occur due to the shape or sloping back of the actual car’s seat.

General care and tyre maintenance

Q.  Where can I find instructions for my product?

Q.  How do I inflate and look after the wheels of my buggy?

A.  We recommend inflating with a manual pump to a max of 20psi. The correct tyre pressure is essential to best maintenance and experience of your buggy. Inflation by a compressor pump is discouraged as this may damage the wheel. If you get a flat tyre and reinflation does not help, replacement inner tubes, tyres and wheels are available for purchase from our webshop. Some punctures may be able to be repaired with a bicycle puncture repair kit. If the buggy is used in exposed environments such as salt water, salt spray or beach sand, wash any steel parts of the buggy by hosing the buggy or use warm soapy water, dry thoroughly and protect by spraying with light aerosol can oil, eg WD40® or CRC®.

Q.  How do I clean the seat fabric of my buggy?

A.  Brush off any excessive dirt or sand and rinse with lukewarm water. Fabric can be removed and washed by hand using a mild natural soap solution in lukewarm water (no more than 38°C/100°F). Rinse thoroughly. DO NOT tumble dry or dry in strong sunlight. To avoid fabric fading, cover the buggy if it is exposed to direct sunlight through glass e.g. in a car or if stored in exposed areas.
