The brake is a flip-flop friendly lever next to the rear right wheel. It shows green to signal the brake off and red to signal when the brake is on. Its large size is great for ease and durability.

Fold

Folding the Britax Affinity 2 is very easy. Simply recline the seat unit as far back as possible and pull the levers on either side of the frame simultaneously. The chassis then effortlessly folds down and the auto-lock clicks into place. Also, it can be stored in a free-standing mode which is great for space saving.
