Do you always fasten the safety straps on your BJCM?
no i didnt.... UNTIL the day my DD decided she wanted something from the basket,i was in the bank,so distracted... she grabbed the 'fold' handle to pull herself around,and FOLDED THE BUGGY ON HERSELF! i grabbed the handle bar just in time to flick it back into place,before it totally closed up,but it was a really frightening moment,and she hurt her back
Hmm...I dont...but I might do now after reading what Frigg's daughter did. I asked the Baby Jogger rep what the black poppers along the back were for (because on the double there are four and they completely restrict access to the shopping basket) and she didn't know they were there but she did mention that there had been a case where a child had done as Frigg's DD did and she wondered if it was something to do with extra safety measures, but she didn't really know.
Thanks for the replies - interesting reading, especially your's Frigg! It's not really much trouble to do, just I don't always remember. Tiggy - strange the rep didn't know. I've got the new 4-wheeler and they're not mentioned in the manual at all - but then neither are the sit-up straps! Looks like they've just taken the 3 wheel manual and put new pics in - bit rubbish really and a rare grumble about an otherwise brilliant pushchair!
