Just bought a pramette for a spare for my sister when she comes over & don't know how to work it?

(16 Posts)
pinkchampagne Fri 28-Aug-09 16:24:14

Bought it of someone on here for keeping over here when my sister visits with my nephew so that she doesn't have to pack so much in the car, but haven't got a clue how to even unfold it, never mind change it from pushchair to pramette mode! Can anyone help?!

SpawnChorus Fri 28-Aug-09 16:30:24

You mean a Mamas & Papas one? To unfold it, hold the handles and squeeze the grey erm..bits on the handles up and towards you, and sort of shake the pramette away from you. It should pop open.

Fark...I'm clearly NOT the right person give technical descriptions grin sorry.

pinkchampagne Fri 28-Aug-09 16:31:43

Lol! Yes I do mean the M&P one. Will try to find & squeeze the grey bits!!

SpawnChorus Fri 28-Aug-09 16:32:59

does this help?

SpawnChorus Fri 28-Aug-09 16:34:37

By the way - jolly good choice. My Pramette has been the BEST buy. I've used it pretty much constantly since DD was born 4.5 yrs ago, and will continue to use it for imminently due DC3!

pinkchampagne Fri 28-Aug-09 16:38:33

It is up thanks! Was only half up at first but obviously wasn't shaking it hard enough! How do I change it from pushchair to pram?

pinkchampagne Fri 28-Aug-09 16:46:00

Sorry, my pc didn't like that link you sent so won't open it. Have got it up now, just need to know how to change it into pramette mode & how to fold again!!

MamaVoo Fri 28-Aug-09 16:48:52

Have a stiff drink to hand when you convert it. I did mine quite a while ago and can't remember the ins and outs (open those zips on the back of the seat and see what happens) but I do know it nearly reduced me to tears. It looked so easy when the woman in the shop did it!

When you unfold it always be sure to click the clips on the legs into place or else you'll find the baby beginning to disappear as it folds itself back up. I speak from experience blush

MamaVoo Fri 28-Aug-09 16:51:50

To fold back up pull the clips on the front of the handles towards you and then pull the handle on the back of the pushchair at the top of the basket. Hope that makes sense.

pinkchampagne Fri 28-Aug-09 16:56:03

Tried that & it isn't folding yet! I have obviously done something wrong here!

pinkchampagne Fri 28-Aug-09 16:57:51

Oh, I seem to have done it now! Need some practise here I think! Opened the zip at the top of the seat & was all very confused so have zipped back up for now!!

SpawnChorus Fri 28-Aug-09 16:58:10

I'm going to C&P all the text for you. It'll look garbled, but prob still better than any explanation I try to give! grin

INSTRUCTIONS FOR SAFE USE
• WARNING: A CHILD’S SAFETY IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
• WARNING: IT MAY BE DANGEROUS TO LEAVE YOUR CHILD
UNATTENDED.
• THIS PRODUCT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR RUNNING OR SKATING.
• WARNING: ANY LOAD ATTACHED TO THE HANDLES AFFECTS THE
STABILITY OF THE PRAM/PUSHCHAIR.
• Always ensure that your pushchair is fully erect and all locking clips are
engaged. (Take particular care if the PVC Raincover is fitted. Check that it is
not entangled or preventing the locking mechanism from functioning
correctly).
• Your pushchair is supplied with a five-point body harness. Children should be
harnessed in at all times. Ensure that the harness is correctly adjusted,
providing a snug fit around your child. Adjustments can be made using the
buckles on the shoulder, waist and crotch straps. Please refer to the “Using &
adjusting the harness” page15. The pushchair is supplied with ‘D’ ring harness
attachment points. These are located on either side at the base of the backrest
and are for fitting a separate harness conforming to BS 6684 if required. We
recommend that an additional harness is used when the pushchair is used as a
pram.
• Always ensure the brakes are correctly engaged whenever the pushchair is left
for any reason, even if only for a short time on a flat surface.
• Care should be taken when using any PVC cover. Regularly check that your
child is comfortable and not over heating. There are mesh ventilation panels
on the sides of the cover. These are essential to aid the flow of cool air around
your baby. Unless it is raining, the raincover should either be removed or the
top section opened, see ‘Attaching the Coperto Raincover’ sections on pages
24 and 25.
• Always ensure your child is clear of moving parts before you adjust the
position of the backrest, footrest or canopy.
• Always manoeuvre your pushchair up and down kerbs and steps gently. Do not
let your pushchair drop. Carry it up stairs whenever possible.
• Never allow additional children to ride on the pushchair at any time.
• Never overload your pushchair with additional goods.
• Do not hang shopping from the handles. Do not use any replacement parts or
accessories e.g. child seats, raincovers, stand-on platforms etc, except those
recommended or supplied by Mamas & Papas. The use of non-approved
replacement parts or accessories may damage or make your pushchair unsafe.
• Never force your pushchair. Adjustments and locks should be free and easy to
operate.
• Do not store your pushchair in a damp place. Always allow the fabric to dry
naturally away from direct heat.
• The basket supplied with your pushchair is designed to hold a maximum of
3kg. Excessive weight could damage the basket or impede the safe operation
of the pushchair.
• We recommend that you fit a Mamas & Papas Sun Canopy to shade your child
from direct sunlight. We recommend that this is used in conjunction with the
appropriate sun protection cream and clothing.

• Regularly check that the safety harness is correctly fitted and that the webbing has not
become frayed or damaged. If the harness is damaged, we recommend that a new one is
fitted. For more information contact our Customer Services on 0879 8307700.
• Clean the plastic parts of the pushchair with a damp cloth, do not use abrasives or bleach.
• Clean and lubricate the wheels, safety locks (where appropriate) and sliding parts
using a light oil or silicon spray. Do not use heavy oil as this will attract dust and
grit which tend to clog and damage moving parts. If in any doubt contact our
Customer Services on 0879 8307700.
• We strongly recommend that you have your pushchair serviced regularly, particularly after
the first six months. To do this contact either your retailer or call our Customer Services on
0879 8307700.
Fabric care
• All the Mamas & Papas pushchair fabrics are shower resistant. Should your pushchair
become wet do not fold the hood or apron when you take the item inside. Always allow
the fabrics to dry naturally away from strong heat sources such as fires, radiators and out
of direct sunlight.
• Whilst fabrics are carefully selected and tested, washing, wear and normal exposure to
bright sunlight may cause their colour to change.
• The exposed edges of fabric covers are often the first to wear and fray, remember this
when storing or transporting your pushchair/carrycot and accessories.
• Light soiling to the pushchair can be removed with a damp sponge and a mild detergent.
• Washing instructions: Remove the fabrics following the instructions given in these
instructions. Hand wash the fabric with a mild detergent at 30ē, dry the fabric flat away
from direct heat and do not tumble dry. Do not use abrasives or bleach or solvents to clean
the fabric.
• Should a fault arise with your pushchair please contact either your retailer or phone our
Customer Services on 0879 8307700.

Wahay, have changed it into pramette mode quite easily! Seem to be having more trouble with the folding & unfolding atm so need more practise!
You have to have it in pushchair mode to fold don't you?

Um...I'm not sure what the official line is on that. I'm sure I folded it while in pram mode...perhaps I scrunched it aginst its will? No harm came of it though.
