Question about Regal Lager Phil & Teds Sport Buggy Single Storm Cover Stroller

1 Answer

Phil and teds sport stroller

My front wheel keeps locking how do you unlock it? I just got it and I'm pretty sure you can lock and unlock the front wheel from turning 360. Thanks I have just received my Phil & Teds Sport. After assembling it I seem to have a problem with the swivel function. Either the wheel falls out or the swivel lock comes on automatically. I can’t seem to have the lock off (i.e. have the front wheel point in any direction) which is what I would leave it on to make life easy. HELP!!!

    I have the same problem. Each time I want to unlock the wheel, I take it off and then put it back. It then works for a while and then it locks again on its own. I'm very frustrated. Help!

    I have the same problem. I put the front wheel on 'swivel' and it keeps going back to the lock position. I have to keep bending down and unlocking it. It gets to be so very annoying and if I'm trying to go out for a walk, I just give up. I have contacted the place where I purchased it from and I'm waiting to hear back. Hope they have a solution for me or this stroller may end up in a landfill.

Melt some candle wax into the hole and put a drawing pin in it so its level and it spins easily without getting stuck

I cannot unfold my Phil adn Teds Sport


Take off the front wheel, this allows the buggy to fold a bit tighter and lock. You now should be able to push the grey button to unlock it.

Phil and Teds Sport. Front wheel either moves freely and falls off when you tilt the buggy up or clicks on and is locked in a very limited position, rotating little left or right. Any ideas?


First of all, I cannot tell you how frustrating the Phil & Teds instruction manual is. Our's had one half inch square pictures that were supposed to be adequate to learn how to use this. As a general suggest there are fantastic videos posted by a third part (not Phil & Teds) that are worth watching.

After several frustrating hours I can tell you exactly how to fix this:

1. Put on the rear brake
2. Sit on the ground in front of the stroller but sit slightly on one side or the other
3. Lift up the stroller so that you can see the pin that you pull to release the front wheel
4. Pull the pin slowly out about a quarter of an inch
5. You should see that there are actually two metal pins (one large, one tiny)
6. Twist the knob you pulled so that the tiny pin does not line up with the tiny circle on the inside of the knob
7. Let go of the knob

If you did this correctly, you should be able to have the front wheel locked in the swivel position even if you tillt the stroller upwards.

I hope this helps. I also hope that at some point Phil & Teds hires someone to help them with their instruction manuals. They have several clever and humorous language in them, but when the document does not serve its actual purpose the humor just becomes frustrating. For the cost of the stroller, the company should be embarrassed that its users are resorting to these online forums to help each other, although I am happy to do it.

Enjoy!

Stuck in folded position Phil and teds classic stroller


We have a new Phil & Teds Classic -- same problem. Solution #2 worked for us. Pushing down on the black bars while pressing the grey button was the solution. Not sure why this is necessary to make the silver button line up with the grey button, but it is. Engaging the brake did not seem to make any difference.

Phil and teds sport stroller


hi we had the same problem with our p&t sports buggy, brand new out of the box the front wheel kept locking, driving me mad! we contacted our supplier, kiddicare.com, who were extremely helpful and sent out a "front wheel swivel/fixed catch (screw fixing)" - it has WORKED WONDERS! the buggy is now smooth and easy to handle. you have to remove the old catch pin which can be a bit of a fiddle (when we got the old pin out it was a rivet fixing and very rusty) but only took us 10 minutes. highly recommended if you can get hold of one of these new screw fix pins, which have obviously been brought out to fix a common fault which p&t can't be bothered to recall lots of buggies and fix themselves...... ;)
