Abstract: A tricycle is provided having a front frame assembly, a rear frame assembly pivotally connected to the front frame assembly, and a release assembly connected to both the front frame assembly and the rear frame assembly to secure the rear frame assembly to the front frame assembly in a use position and alternately in a storage position. The release assembly is moveable to allow for transitioning the rear frame assembly to the storage position from the use position. A foot rest is connected to the tricycle and is also moveable between a use position and a storage position. The tricycle also has a restraint hoop and a canopy, and quick release mechanisms to removably secure the restraint hoop and the canopy to the tricycle.
Abstract: A trailer assembly is provided for a wagon. The trailer assembly has a trailer frame comprising a first frame pivotally connected to the wagon, a second frame pivotally connected to the wagon, and a first link pivotally connecting the first frame to the second frame. The trailer frame is positionable between a first or use position and a second or folded position, A wheel is rotatedly connected to the trailer frame to support the trailer frame in the use position.
Abstract: A canopy assembly is provided for a ride-on vehicle including a canopy and a canopy frame assembly. The canopy frame assembly has a housing, a release member connected to the housing, a canopy support extending through the housing, and a connector connected to the canopy support. The canopy support has a first stop adjacent a first end of the canopy support and a second stop adjacent a second end of the canopy support. The release member engages the canopy support at the first stop to maintain the canopy support in the first position, wherein the canopy support is retracted, and at the second stop to maintain the canopy support in the second position, wherein the canopy support is in the extended position.
Abstract: A foldable wagon is provided that is configurable in a use configuration and folded configuration. The foldable wagon has a front frame assembly, a rear frame assembly, a first upper pivot bracket and a first lower pivot bracket connecting the front frame assembly to the rear frame assembly. The wagon has a timing member to maintain the front and rear frame assemblies synched during folding and unfolding of the wagon. The wagon also has a footrest with a first end connected to the rear frame assembly and a second end free from connection to the front frame assembly. When the second end of the footrest is raised the rear frame assembly and the front frame assembly pivot from the use configuration to the folded configuration. The wagon also has foldable front and rear seatbacks.
Abstract: A power assist system for a wagon having a safety cut-off system is provided. The power assist system preferably includes a wagon body having a plurality of wheels, at least one of which is a driven wheel, a pivotable handle, a drive system having a motor mechanically connected to the driven wheel, a microcontroller that obtains an input signal and provides an output signal to the drive system and, a safety cut-off system connected to the handle. In one embodiment the safety cut-off system includes a safety-control switch electrically connected to the microcontroller, and the microcontroller adjusts the signal sent to the drive system based on a state of the safety-control switch.
Abstract: A scooter is provided having a deck, a handlebar connected to the deck, a front wheel assembly, a rear wheel assembly and a steering mechanism. The steering mechanism has a steering post and a longitudinally extending spring member that has a plurality of transverse planar surfaces. A first spring member cavity is provided adjacent the front wheel assembly to receive the first end of the spring member, and a second spring member cavity is provided adjacent the deck to receive the second end of the spring member. A bushing is positioned between the deck and the front wheel assembly to allow the deck to rotate with respect to the front wheel assembly.
