Question about Quinny Zapp and Maxi Cosi cabriofix adaptors.

I have just had dc3 and wanted a carseat travel system for fairly short term use until I can use my trusty old Maclaren Quest (which IMO is the best stroller ever!) I bought the carseat new and the pushchair on ebay. The problem I am having is that the carseat is very hard to get out of the adaptors. I expected it to just slot out quite easily but I have to really use quite a lot of force to get it out. I wanted to know what others experience of using the Quinny Zapp and Maxi cosi are , is it easy to get the carseat in and out or are my adaptors at fault. The chassis of the pushchair seems fine and overall it does not look very worn at all.
Also does anyone know where I can get new adaptors? thanks!

Without DS in the car seat, I find it pretty easy to lift the seat off the chassis, but with him in it much harder, have to put a foot on the chassis to hold it down while I lift the car seat. Also have to lift at the right angle otherwise, no hope!

You should be able to get new adaptors on ebay (i keep intending to sell mine)

We had the buzz with the cabriofix and I found the same problem, was fine with DS out of it, but what's the point in that? NEVER used it to actually take him off the chassis and straight into the car as I physically couldn't detach the bloody car seat from the frame.

Sell the Zapp and buy something like an M&P Luna second hand (brilliant buggy)

Thanks, can the M&P Luna be used with the cabriofix car seat?

ah, I'm not sure. I think there are some M&P ones that can (will have a better look in the morning for you)

i had a buzz chassis and cabriofix and i found it so easy to lift the carseat on and off,i loved mine.only time it was a problem was if you lifted it at a slight angle rather than straight out.
