You aren’t alone in doing so; this brand is incredibly popular thanks to the integrated car seat in the strollers, making traveling and life with a baby that bit easier.

Well, we are here today to remove that panic once and for all! We will walk you through how to fold your Evenflo stroller and provide some handy tips and tricks along the way too!
So sit back, relax, and prepare to become the stroller folding expert you were born to be.
How to fold Evenflo stroller
Let’s get straight into it and get your stroller folded! Evenflo has a few different models available, and they fold away slightly differently.
Don’t panic, we will walk you through how each model is folded away, but it’s important that you check which model you have. You can usually find the model name on the stroller itself or in the user manual that your stroller came with.
Once you have located the model of your stroller, you can find it listed below and follow the step-by-step instructions to fold your stroller.
Remember to empty the stroller before you fold it and ensure you are near your baby or cared for properly by someone else. You don’t want to be distracted or worrying about your child when folding your stroller.
It can take a few attempts to get to grips with folding your Evenflo stroller, so take your time! Don’t worry if it’s difficult at first; after a few attempts, you will be whizzing through the steps!

These strollers fold similarly, and you can use the steps below to fold or close your stroller. In just five easy steps, your stroller will be folded and ready for storage! Keep reading to find out how.
- Push back the hood of the stroller to the back before attempting to fold or close the stroller.
- Next, take the strap in the seating area of the stroller. It looks like a thin belt or strap that is located in the middle area of the seat.
- Hold the strap with one hand, lifting it into the air slightly, or tug the strap hard. While you do this, give it a good shake.
- The stroller will then start to fold back itself, and it can be closed up easily.
- Once the stroller folds or closes up, it can be left to stand alone or balanced on the wheels. You can also stack the stroller away if needed.
And there you have it; your Evenflo stroller is folded, ready to be stored away! There might be slight discrepancies on how this works depending on the model of your stroller, so be sure to check your user manual for more information.
The strollers manual will usually contain a detailed step-by-step guide on using your stroller and folding it away, complete with pictures for you to follow. The manual should be your first port of call for learning how to fold your stroller and usually comes with the stroller when you order it.
If you cannot locate your manual, you can download a pdf version for free online. Simply search for your Evenflo stroller followed by ‘user manual’ and pdf versions to download should pop up.
We recommend doing this so that you always have a manual handy should you need it.

Simply follow the four easy steps below to fold your stroller and be on your way.
- On this model, there is a folding strap placed around the hood area of the stroller, just below the middle part of the handles.
- To close the stroller, hold this strap with one hand and tug it in an upward motion.
- At the same time, hold the front part of the stroller with your other hand. Pull it towards the inside while tugging the other strap.
- The stroller will then fold up into a compact form that you can store as you see fit.
