Phil & Teds Vibe - Back Wheels

I assembled the stroller per the manual and the back wheels are not locking into place. I push the silver wheel axel in when I push the wheel into the hub and it goes into place. But it doesn't lock, we go a few feet and the wheels start to loosen and come off. I am afraid to use the stroller. Am I missing a step? Is there another button I should be pushing? Should I hear or feel it lock into place?

Would love some help!

I had the same problem.  What worked for me and they don't tell you in the instructions is that when you have slid the mud guards on and into place, you have to push the bottom of the mud guard (the bit nearest to the floor) in from the out side till it clicks!  then the wheels went on and locked.

I had this exact problem and came across a solution on Phil and Ted's own website - http://www.philandteds.com/faqs/faqbuggy.htm#18

You know the black rear guards you slid on before you are told to put on the wheels - well you need to lock them down properly. Push on the bit closest to the ground until you hear an audible loud click - then put the wheels back on and now they wont come off again.

How can i get replacement parts for a simplicity crib 8994w ..


This company went out of business and I was unable to contact anyone about ordering parts or manuals. Unfortunately the new company that bought them, isn't taking responsiblity for any Products from the original Manufacturer.

Note, the website phone number and email are non working.

However, I did get a number to a person at the Blackstreet Captial Partners, who help in the purchase of the company. This is the communcations dept. Ask for Don Meyer 202-898-0995.
