The pdf on the website is the same as the link to the twitter post from missusp.
It looks like they'll mail out a replacement buckle thing with installation instructions.
My guess is that the strollers for the UK market would have the same potential problem - from what I can tell the only difference is the short straps with snaps from the seat to the frame and the hook closure to keep the stroller folded shut. I got mine in the spring and it was made in China.
Just checked my product number, and it's one of those listed [shock!] called them y'day and it was their 'labor day'!yep, i called the states..only cos i cant seem to find a uk number for em.. any ideas anyone?
Gosh... I've always thought that clip was rubbish - its come undone a few times - but never thought much about it.
I love my city mini but I really don't like the harness - I find it really hard to get the straps on and off - my DS always seems just a bit slumped and uncomfortable... anyone else agree or is it just me?! Tried to think of a way to fit the McClaren harness in it instead but brain failure occurred.
lexy i absolutely detest the harness too- way too fiddly, and the clasp is pants too. the slumped thing happend with my kids too- mainly cos the seat has no 'upright' setting- that's the only thing that annoys me, but it's still a joy to push, fold and soo light too.. and i still like to demo the 'folding' thingie to anyone who is willing (and not willing...) to look!
Just checked mine and it is one of those listed, I've never had a problem with the harness though but I just clipped it together and pulled either end and tugged it quite roughly and it did'nt come undone so am assuming it's fine!
Agree though about the harness being a bit annoying, I don't like the way it attaches to the back of the seat always thought those hooks don't look to clever!
mama i got the new clasp today- it's bigger and looks a tad easier to fasten cos there's more of it to hold iykwim.. i'd recommend you ask them for one tbh, then you can decide. all they asked from me was the serial number of the buggy and that 61700 or whatever code.. came next day via special courier tracked delivery in a massive bag witht he teeny clip inside(!)..
my prams away at the manufacturers for examination following fabric fault. i asked my retailer about the harness fasteners and was told definately a u.s only problem i told them mine comes undone very easily and thats going to be examined as well. all i want now is my pram back all fixed and safe.
