Micralite superlite
8

HiccupHaddockHorrendous · 19/08/2013 23:21

I've just bought one off eBay and there appear to be a couple of problems.

Firstly, the handles won't stay fixed. They tilt when a little force is applied. A quick google shows that it has been an issue but it is one I can live with.

The other problem is that the seat won't stay upright or in the recline position. It slips way down the back of the frame.

I can't find any pictures online that clearly show how the recline part and the mesh part should be attached to the frame.

Can anyone help before I sell it for spares/repairs?

I loved my micralite! The handles should be held by two clips, the come lose a bit but should be easy to tighten with screwdriver? The back should have two clips on each side? You need to pull both bits up or down to keep it in position x

Thanks for the reply.

I've tighten the handle clips as much as I can manage but it makes no difference but I can live with this problem if I can sort out the recline.

I've found all the info on how to recline/lift up the seat but it just won't stay up. I don't tnk the recline mechanism is fitted properly but can't work out how to take it apart.

Hmm, might have to wait until tomorrow and have another go in daylight.

Yay! I've fixed it!! Had to take the recline mechanism apart and now it's working fine Smile

I might fiddle around with the wobbly handle another time Grin

That's ok Smile

I had one about 10 years ago when they first came out but the recline on this one is totally different.

Just keep your fingers crossed that it fits in my car boot!!

It will! They are tiny and strong! Love mine it's the only one that did the job with my huge son once he needed a stroller!

Took it out for its first test-drive today and it has passed with flying colours Grin.

I have a Zafira and when the boot seats are up the only buggy that fits is a Maclaren Quest (Techno XT was far too big). I have gone through hundreds quite a few buggies, trying to find another one that will fit.

Anyway, I was thrilled to discover that the micralite is the same height as the Maclaren quest (when folded) and fitted in just fine so it will be staying for the foreseeable!
