2. Make sure that there is nothing on the platform (no wheelchair or person). .

4. Detach the cable connector and remove the safety pin from the frame. 

5. Hang the handle with the brake lever on the luggage carrier or another suitable place on the wheelchair wheel.

Hold the bicycle part and pull the lever backwards with the other hand.

6. Lower the support on the front part. 

7. Release the parking brake on the cable to be able to move the rear wheel. 

8. Now hold the rear part (bicycle part) with one hand and pull the lever backwards with the other hand, thus disconnecting the wheelchair wheel. The wheelchair part then stands on the support wheel. Pull the bike part out of the coupling. Caution. The bicycle part is heavy. Hold the frame firmly with both hands. 

9. Place the rear part on the stand. To reassemble the wheelchair wheel, follow these steps in reverse order. It helps to pull up the rear wheel until you hear a click.
