Detailed instructions on how to fold UPPABaby Vista stroller

The Uppababy Vista v2 folds in just a few steps. Read them first and then try to repeat them on your Uppababy Vista v2 stroller.

1. Putting on the brakes

It is compulsory to make sure your uppababy vista pushchair stays still when you are going to be pushing on it. Locate the lever on the right rear wheel and apply some pressure to lock it. The green mark will change to red, which means the stroller frame is locked.

At the same time, check out the position of both front wheels. They have to be straight to avoid unnecessary movements and to allow the stroller to be folded without any issue.

2. Folding the sun hood of the stroller

The next step is to fold the sun visor that protects your baby from direct sunlight. Simply pull it down to its original location.

3. Unloading the stroller

Before you fold uppababy vista stroller, you have to take your baby out first. Then make sure you remove any items that you store underneath the stroller’s seat. Leaving stuff in the stroller will stop you from folding it, as it is going to be in the way.

4. Extending of the handle bar

As you might know, the Uppababy Vista v2 comes with a telescopic handle bar to suit any height of a parent. Before you proceed with folding the stroller, the handle bar has to be extended to its tallest position. This will prevent the stroller being stuck.

If you don’t know how to extend the handlebar, simply press the button, locating at the center of the bar underneath, and pull the handlebar up. You will hear a clicking sound, meaning the handlebar is now locked at this position.

5. Folding the stroller

This is the most important part of the whole folding process. Locate two levers on the handlebar. Look at the beginning of the handlebar on each side.

Simultaneously pull them both. You will have to use both hands to compete this step.

While holding the levers, push the stroller down with gentle pressure. It will easily fold.

The stroller frame will be staying in the upright position with the front wheels down and the footrest being at the top. The small plastic clip has to be locked for the stroller to stay as a whole.

6. Folding the footrest

The footrest that attaches to the toddler seat and helps to hold your baby’s legs, has to be folded as well. It allows more compact fold of your stroller.

Locate the buttons on the left and right sides of the footrest and push them down at the same time. While pushing them, apply gentle pressure downward, towards the wheels and the ground. Leave it at this position and release triggers.

If all the above steps performed precisely, the stroller is now ready to be loaded into your vehicle or to be stored.
