SCHEDULE 1(Subsection 4(1) and section 13)Inclined Plane Stability Testing

  • 1 The following method is to be used for testing the stability of a carriage or stroller on an inclined plane:

    • (a) place the carriage or stroller in the manufacturer’s recommended use position with the braking device not engaged and with all wheels in contact with a sheet of 19 mm plywood that is inclined 12° to the horizontal and of such a size that all of its wheels are at least 50 mm from any edge;

    • (b) place the backrest of the carriage or stroller in the most upright use position, if it has an adjustable backrest;

    • (c) place a dummy that meets the requirements set out in Schedule 9 in the centre of the seating unit and secure it using the child restraint system;

    • (d) orient the carriage or stroller so that any two adjacent wheels or sets of wheels, in any combination, are in a line parallel to the horizontal;

    • (e) if there is a parcel rack, leave it empty;

    • (f) if there is or is provision for a parcel bag, place the manufacturer’s recommended load in the manufacturer’s recommended parcel bag;

    • (g) place stops on the sheet of plywood against the wheels in a manner that will prevent the carriage or stroller from moving on the plane but will not prevent it from tipping;

    • (h) note whether the carriage or stroller is still in the manufacturer’s recommended use position with all wheels in contact with the sheet of plywood;

    • (i) turn the carriage or stroller clockwise by 90°;

    • (j) repeat the steps set out in paragraphs (a) to (h);

    • (k) repeat the steps set out in paragraphs (i) and (j) two times; and

    • (l) in the case of a multiple occupancy carriage or stroller, perform the test with a dummy that meets the requirements set out in Schedule 9 in each seating unit, one at a time and then with a dummy in each seating unit simultaneously.
