We've just bought this travel cot and it certainly pops up nice and easily but we're stumped as to how to fold it away. The instructions are useless. For example, to lie it flat, you have to twist it but it doesn't say this, so perhaps you don't lie it flat as such. And do you hold it by the opening or from the back? If anyone could share some step by step instructions we'd be very grateful as I think we've already bent it out of shape and it's driving us mad! Thank god we did this at home, not in Portugal next week, when late for the plane home!
Thank you! I will wrestle with it again. That annoying woman on Youtube just puts it up, she doesn't take it down! Sigh. I just KNOW there's a knack and I need to master it but I'm worried we'll bend it all out of shape before then. Hey ho. We have the baby one by the way.
if its the smaller one, hold flat, holding either end, twist hands in oppersite directions until a figure of 8 appears, then carry on twisting while pushing bother circles into eachother. Same for large one, just make sure you take out mattress and 2 rods from top.
I'm in work at the minute but unless I'm being very stupid (always a possibility) the struts in the bottom of the cot (the larger one) don't come out and besides they were already in there when I took it out of the bag yesterday. And as I say, I can't get it to lie flat properly with these in there. Should they be bent in a particular way?
Could one of you that've mastered it throw up a quick video?
i have exactly the same problem with folding away the samsonite pop up travel cot. I cannot get it flat to start twisting as there are two poles at the bottom that were already there when unpackacking and cannot be taken out(i took out the removable top ones of course). can anyones help me with this? so its really the first step on how to get it flat and start. all the youtube movies doesnt seem to have the poles at the bottom.
