Fret not, as we've got you covered in this simple, step-by-step guide on how to fold your BIRD electric scooter.

Step 1: Parking the scooter
Before you fold the scooter, make sure you've stopped in a safe location that's away from vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Choose an area with a flat surface, and initiate the parking process using the BIRD app. This will prevent the scooter from moving while folding.

Step 2: Locate the folding mechanism
Once you've parked the scooter, turn your attention to the folding mechanism. BIRD scooters have a folding latch located near the base of the handlebars where the stem connects to the deck. It usually consists of a small lever or handle that's labeled with instructions to pull or press.

Step 3: Engage the folding latch
Press or pull the folding latch according to the instructions on the scooter. Some BIRD models may require you to push the handlebars forward before engaging the latch, while others involve pulling a pin or lever.

Step 4: Fold the handlebars down
After releasing the latch, gently push the handlebars down toward the scooter deck. The stem should fold smoothly, and the handlebars will come to rest in a horizontal position. Ensure the handlebars are securely locked in place to avoid any issues during transportation.

Step 5: Carry the scooter
With the handlebars folded down, you can now carry your BIRD scooter easily. On some models, you may find a designated carrying handle for added convenience. Lift the scooter from the handle and proceed to transport it to your desired location.

Step 6: Unfolding the scooter
To unfold the scooter for your next ride, simply reverse the steps. Release the folding mechanism, lift the handlebars to their upright position, and securely lock them in place. Check the scooter for any damage or loose parts and, once you've ensured it's safe for use, enjoy your ride!

Folding an electric scooter is a straightforward process once you're familiar with the steps. With a few practice folds, you'll master the art of folding your BIRD scooter, making it a breeze to carry around and store when not in use. Mastering this skill will enable you to enjoy your time on the scooter and quickly adapt to urban life on the go!
