A double stroller is an indispensable item for parents of two small children or twins. The Eddie Bauer tandem stroller offers stadium seating for two bigger kids, but is also able to accept two car seats simultaneously when needed. Weighing a substantial 47 pounds, the stroller boasts a one-handed fold and ample storage. One unique feature is the removable front seat, which can be configured so that it is front-facing or back-facing depending on your needs.
Opening Your Stroller
Place the stroller with its wheels on the ground.
Unfasten the lock strap on the side of the stroller frame.
Pull back and upwards sharply on the handle until the frame locks into the open position with a click.
Folding Your Stroller
Pull the rear canopy to a fully open position.
Push down on the stroller handle to raise the front of the stroller in the air.
Slide the red release handle to the left and squeeze to release the frame lock. Gravity will pull the stroller into a folded position.
Attach the lock strap on the side of the stroller frame. The wheels may need to be rotated so that they are all parallel in order to fully fold the stroller.
Attaching Rear Car Seat
Remove the mounting bar beneath the front seat by pinching the red handle toward the center of the bar.
Place the mounting bar into the corresponding holes on the inside of the arms of the stroller seat, inserting one end of the bar at a time.
Recline the stroller seat by squeezing the plastic harness release on the back of the seat while pulling the seat into a reclined position.
Pull on the release handle on the back of the car seat while placing it into a rear-facing position on the mounting bar in the stroller seat. A click will indicate it has locked into place.
Attaching Front Car Seat
Remove the mounting bar from the back of the seat by grasping one end and pulling back to compress the mounting bar.
Return the seat to a fully upright position by squeezing the release bar on the back of the seat while pushing the seat back into the desired position.
Place the mounting bar into the two holes on the inside of the seat back, inserting one end at a time and pushing to compress the bar.
Pull on the release handle on the car seat while placing it in a rear-facing position on the mounting bar in the stroller seat.
Release the handle and listen for a click to indicate that the car seat is locked into place.
Reversing Front Seat
Press the red buttons on either side of the seat to release the locks.
Lift the seat straight up off the brackets.
Rotate the seat to a reverse-facing position.
Align the seat's sockets with the brackets on the stroller frame, and push down until a click indicates the seat is locked into place.
Babies should be able to sit unassisted before placing them in the stroller seats while in an upright position.
The trays must be installed when attaching car seats.
