Learning how to properly fold and unfold your razor scooter will help keep it in great condition and make it easier to store and transport. Razor scooters are designed to be folded up for convenience and portability. With just a few quick steps, you can collapse it down in seconds whenever you need to pack it up.
Steps to Fold a Razor Scooter
- Stand the scooter upright and lock the steering column into place by pushing down the lever near the base of the handlebars. This keeps the front wheel aligned and stabilized.
- Locate the latch in the center of the scooter deck near the rear fender. Lift up on the latch to release the folding mechanism.
- With one hand on the handlebars and one hand holding the rear fender, gently push the handlebars forward to fold the scooter in half. The folding joint will collapse inward.
- Press firmly on the folded scooter to lock it closed. The latch should automatically re-engage. Your scooter is now folded up for storage and transport!
