Maclaren Stroller Recall

November 25th, 2009

Quest Sport Coffee Brown with Blue

We have had several inquiries lately about the Maclaren stroller recall, so I thought I would weigh in on the topic and help shed some light.

The issue is with all 9 Maclaren stroller models, new and old.

The recall was voluntary and it was issued because 12 kids had their finger tips amputated when their little fingers got stuck in the side hinges during the stroller unfolding process. When it comes to child safety, we must all take caution. However, please keep in mind that this issue was caused during the folding and unfolding process, not while strolling. So, parents, take the appropriate measures to fix the issue, but please don’t panic. Your stroller is fine, you just need to contact your retailer or Maclaren directly to have them send you a package of hinge covers.

Maclaren is providing all retailers and stroller owners with a package of 2 Hinge Covers. When installing them, it sufficiently covers/blocks the hinge area, preventing kids from getting their fingers caught. 

Once you have these and install them, you are ready to roll again!

Maclaren is a great brand, and they make great products. I stand by them as a parent and retail store owner.
