The Proper Way to Set Up the Pop N’ Go Playpen - The California Beach Co.

So you’ve just received your new Pop 'N Go playpen, how exciting! 🤩 Before you rush to set it up, here are a few quick tips to help you get started. 

Step 1: Take your Pop 'N Go™ out of the bag, remove the elastic band, and set it on the ground.

Step 2: Now pop it up and place your hands on the upper popping mechanism (Pro Tip: Use two hands to avoid pinched fingers).

Step 3: Pop the top down with a small amount of force and click it into place

Step 4: Insert the safety clip to secure the popper.

Step 5: Use the included ground stakes to provide extra security to your playpen.

Optional Steps: Easily add or remove the UV shade cover for extra protection from the Sun - For added comfort try adding our inflatable playmat underneath the Pop 'N Go™

Here’s an important tip!

When first setting up a new Pop 'N Go, it can be easy for the fabric to get stuck on the hinges, making it impossible to pop the playpen into place. Check all of the corners to make sure none of the fabric is stuck before moving on to the next step.

Last steps: Pop the top down and you’ll hear a click. Then, place the safety clip on top, and you’re all set! 💃

A Few Extra Tips For Setup!

Be sure to check that the fabric isn’t stuck in the hinges when setting up your Pop 'N Go for the first time — this is a super common mistake to make! ⚠️

Also, when properly setting up, your Pop 'N Go should resemble a dome shape, not a tepee. It should also feel sturdy and not sway back and forth when pushed on. It can be easy to make the mistake of skipping the step of popping your playpen down into place and misplacing the safety clip. 

Putting Away Your Pop N’ Go

Now that you’ve mastered setting up your new Pop N’ Go, it’s time to practice packing it up. When you’re ready to put your playpen away, just follow these quick easy steps:

Step 1: Remove the safety lock

Step 2: Squeeze the top bars up, bring it down

Step 3: Fold the Pop N' Go™ and strap it together with the elastic band
