How do you fold down the quinny zapp - Quinny ZAPP Stroller

  • Anonymous Apr 24, 2009


    I have the same problem. Just bought one secondhand with no instructions and can't figure out how to fold it! Got steps 1 & 2 but don't understand step 3. Do you press grey button 3 down with your foot, then what? Tried everything & feel really stupid!

    Thanks for help in advance!

The steps are numbered 123 on the stroller. press the big round button numbered 1 on the right side (i think), which is located where the handle meets the main part of the stroller. Press the big round button numbered 2 on the other side. After you press button 2, you should be able to fold the handles (both of them together) forward, swinging the handlebars out in an arc until they're nearly touching the front wheel, on the ground. Now, step 3 is the difficult one--you've got to release the catch numbered 3 (underneath the seat, directly beneath where the baby's bottom goes) and then slide the ring forward, along the rod underneath the seat, toward the front wheel. If you can get it going, the rest will happen very smoothly, and the stroller will fold very compactly. It's difficult to describe, but once you get it, it's a cinch after a little practice. Good luck!

SOURCE: Folding Quinny speedi Sx Stroller

In the middle of the underneath of the pushing handle, below where the hand brake lever is there should be a button. If there is, this is what you do.
1) put the foot brake on so the rear wheels wont turn.
2) unclip the clips on the frame that allow you to adjust the height of the pushing handle, they open up, and leave them open, like this the handle you push the buggy with should slide up and down.
3) pull this handle out to its tallest position
4) Hold the handle and press the button mentioned at the start in and hold it in
5) Then quite quickly push the handle down as though you were either pushing it to lower its pushing height, or shoving it away in a temper. It needs to be a firm and quick movement.

Ta da!! After a couple of tries it should click and fold up.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: my buggy is a quinny zapp i dont know how to fold

First make sure the brake is on. There are two round Grey buttons, one on either side of the frame (about halfway down) they should have a small red triangular numbered sticker above them (1 & 2) Stand behind the pushchair where the handles are and press the left one in (that's number 1) and gently fold the frame a bit but not too much! Do the same with the right one (number 2) when the frame starts to fold in bend the bar down that sits between the handles and place your foot on the Grey pedal located at the bottom of the frame in between the brakes (number 3) and slide it towards the front of the pushchair, as you do this the whole frame should close up.

How do i spray my quinny zapp frame black?and what type of paint?


Quinny would not advise the spray painting of the chassis.

Due to the way the chassis folds down, spray painting it may cause fold and unfold problems.

It would invalidate any remaining warranty on the product.

Does the new quinny zapp extra hood fit onto the old style zapp? Or any other quinny hood? I don't mind removing it before folding.


No the new Quinny Zapp Xtra sun canopy is part of the seat fabric.

If you wish to turn your standard Quinny Zapp into a Quinny Zapp Xtra you need to purchase the Quinny Zapp Xtra seat unit as an accessory from your local retailer as it will have the seat frame and the adaptors required to fit it into the chassis you have.

Visit to find your nearest retailer.

How do I fold down a quinny zapp xtra and do the wheels need screwing on?

Hi Zoe

The folding instructions can be found in the User Manual. If you need to download a replacement copy of the User Manual visit and select the country you're in, then select the Quinny Zapp Xtra from the products list and one of the options will be for a downloadable version of the User Manual.

The wheels do not need to be screwed in they just click in.
