How to Change Your Phil and Ted Sport Stroller Fabric
The city can be gritty and kids can be messy. Spot clean as you may, after a few years of toting your tots around in your inline stroller, the stroller fabric might need a little facelift. We sell the replacement fabrics for all of the strollers we carrry, and have been asked numerous times about how you actually do the switch. With some strollers, it's not nearly as intuative as it could be – but it's easy with a little guidance.
Changing the Fabric of the Sport Stroller V1 by Phil and Teds [instructions straight from P&T Live Help!]
What you will need: An additional hand (2 people is better than one), and a Philips Head Screwdriver.
Step 1: You will want to remove the canopy first & it helps to have the main seat reclining straps undone too.
Step 2: At the bottom of the main seat are two canvas straps that are attached to the frame—unscrew these from the frame –There is only one attachment point–a metal post on each side of the frame (a few inches below the main handle bar). At the top of the fabric on each side is a metal circular 'grommet' which hooks over the metal post –you will need to lift the fabric's metal grommet off of the metal post. Just use a bit of effort and it will come off…
Step 3: Remove the main handle. Using the Philips head screwdriver, unscrew the handle from the frame, there are 2 screws on each side – they will be exposed once you lift the metal grommet off of the pegs and slide the fabric down just a bit -
The main seat fabric piece has "sleeves" at each side that slide onto each side of the frame; slide the fabric upward, and off of the frame over the where the handle bar was.
To attach the new one, just reverse the process!
