Parenting can be pretty technical at times. Navigating your way towards the opening and folding the Graco Stroller can be tricky. Here we will show you a step by step guide on how to open and fold them.

There are two manufactured models of Graco Strollers: Single and Double Stroller. Both will have different instructions on how to open it. The Single Stroller is just for one baby while the Double Stroller is for two babies.

10 easy steps to open a single stroller

  1. Place the stroller on a flat surface, and all the wheels should be touching the ground.
  2. Let the handles face upward.
  3. Find the buttons located on the outer sidebars of the stroller.
  4. Press the buttons and snap the handle upwards.
  5. Pull the handle upwards until you hear a click sound.
  6. You will have to release the side latches so each side of the stroller will open.
  7. Find the center of the stroller where it is holding the foundation altogether.
  8. Check and ensure that the center won’t snap when you carry it.
  9. Now hold the stroller with your other hand while the other will pull it upwards until you hear another click sound.
  10. It should be open by now and ready to use.

7 easy steps to open a double stroller

  • The first process is the same as the double stroller. You will need to set it up on the ground, making sure all the wheels are touching the ground.
  • The handles should be facing upwards.
  • Find the location of the storage latch, and it should be between the handlebars and top of the stroller.
  • You will find an oval shape button, press it, and remove the safety strap attached from the stroller’s latch. (The safety straps hold the stroller together to carry it easily.)
  • To fully open the stroller, you will have to remove the straps and press the button.
  • The same as the single stroller, you have to pull the handlebars upwards until you hear the click sound. (Newer strollers are quite hard to open compared to used ones. If you’re having trouble doing this step, it’s normal. Just try again until you hear the sound.)
  • Now it’s ready to use for your two kids.

Folding back the Graco stroller

It’s important to note that there are different instructions on folding it as well, depending on what stroller model you currently possess. Newer models have an easy way of folding it compared to the older ones. We will show you two different instructions on how to fold older and newer models of Graco strollers.

More important tips

  • The instructions provided above may vary depending on what type of model you currently have. You need to check the model number and find a specific guide for that model.
  • Verify the User Manual Guide first before doing anything. This is always the first rule to apply when purchasing a new product to help you understand its mechanism.
  • Ensure that your kid is away from the assembling area where you’re trying to assemble, install, or fold the stroller.
  • Before boarding your child into the stroller, make sure the stroller was properly installed to avoid any accidents that might happen.
  • Always store the stroller in a clean and dry storage space after using it. Never leave it in a damp area or in the garage where bacteria and harmful insects can access it. The last thing you want your child to have is a dirty stroller.
  • In case the stroller got accidentally wet, make sure to wipe it down immediately and keep it dry. This will avoid your stroller from corrosion.
