After some deliberation and approaches with velcro, we came up with the perfect idea. It had to be magnets. But the usual ferrite magnets were not strong enough. Then on the Internet, I stumbled upon super magnets made of neodymium. According to other customers, they are supposed to be nice and small yet super strong!
With a few S-10-05-N I realized the following idea:
I sewed in a disc magnet at the spots where the holding clamps used to be.
At the appropriate spots on the folding top we pushed away the fabric and superglued magnets onto the integrated metal frame, so they can't get out of place. Then we moved back the fabric in order to cover up the magnets.
Note from the supermagnete team:
- CAUTION: Swallowing super magnets can be LIFE THREATENING (see also our warnings). If you use super magnets on a pram, please make absolutely sure and check regularly that the magnets can't come off easily or can't be removed by children.
- Instead of normal discs sew-in magnets could have been directly sewn onto the fabric.
