How to Fit a Footmuff to a Pram: Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Identify Your Pram's Harness Type

  • Inspect your pram to determine the type of harness it has. Open up the harness to see if it separates into 3 or 5 straps.
  • Note that the majority of prams come with a 5-point harness system.

Step 2: Choose the Correct Footmuff

  • Based on your harness type, select a footmuff that is compatible:
    • For a 5-point harness, any standard footmuff should fit.
    • For a 3-point harness, ensure the footmuff has vertical strap openings. Brands like Kaiser and the Fellhof Premium model are designed for this purpose.

Step 3: Attach the Footmuff to Your Pram

  • If your footmuff is designed to hook over the pram, secure it either with a fabric flap or a clip at the top of the pram.
  • Carefully thread the harness straps through the footmuff's openings, making sure each strap is correctly positioned.

Step 4: Secure the Footmuff

  • For footmuffs with additional securing mechanisms (like ties or Velcro tabs), attach these to the pram's frame for extra stability.
  • Once all straps are through and the footmuff is attached, adjust the harness to ensure it's snug and secure. This step is crucial for your baby's safety and comfort.

Step 5: Some Final Checks

  • Double-check that the footmuff is securely in place, and the harness is tight enough to hold but comfortable for your baby.
  • Ensure there are no loose parts or straps that could pose a safety hazard.
