Before you attach the XLC Kids Trailer MONO S or DUO S to your bike, make sure the hitch arm is safely secured to the underside of your Kids Trailer. We don’t want you to lose your precious cargo on the way!
Make sure the spring pin is locked in place, and the quick-release pin is fully inserted into its socket.
The hitch needs to be attached to the left side of your bike’s rear axle. To make mounting easier, slightly tilt your bike to the side.
Slide the hitch arm over the hitch, then insert the quick-release pin. Again, make sure it is fully inserted into its socket.
As a last step, take the safety strap and wrap it around your bike’s frame. The Kids Trailer is safely secured once you fastened it to the hitch arm.
These four easy steps will ensure that your XLC Kids Trailer MONO S or DUO S is safely secured to your bike. If you follow the instructions, you and your kids will be ready to make new memories in no time.
How to fold and transport the Kid’s Trailer
If you ever plan on taking your XLC Kids Trailer MONO S or DUO S on a longer trip, you might want to transport it in your car first. To do so, you need to prepare the Kid’s Trailer before it will fit your car boot.
To fold the Kids Trailer, open the rear compartment flap and locate the release latches on the vertical frame tubes.
To operate the latches, grab the trailer’s handles on both sides and squeeze simultaneously to unlock the frame.
While holding the latches, push forward to fold the Kid’s Trailer.
Tip: A quick forward snap of your wrist should be enough to fold the frame. Alternatively, a slight nudge with your knee on the rear basket frame cross-tube will work as well.
You can fold your XLC Kids Trailer MONO S or DUO S with wheels on or off. If you choose to transport the Kids Trailer without its wheels attached, you can store them inside the kid's trailer before putting it into your boot. There’s only one step needed per wheel.
To remove the wheel, push the button on the wheelbase. This will trigger the quick-release system of the wheels, so you can now simply pull them off the Kids Trailer.
The process of attaching the Kids Trailer to your bike as well as preparing it for transport might need a few repetitions before you can perform every step by heart. This is why your XLC Kids Trailer MONO S or DUO S comes with a handy user manual. You can re-read everything you need to know, and more, so you can fully enjoy your XLC Kids Trailer Mono S or DUO S.
