Broken hood on nordic cruiser

Help!! I use my simo nordic cruiser all the time!! The latch on the hood broke off of the right side and now it no longer stays in one spot. It seems that the left latch cannot hold the weight of the hood with just itself. It is the lever that you can adjust when you want to put the hood forward or backward. The latch folds out for you to move the hood where you want it and then you can push it tight to make the hood stay in place. What should I do??? Thanks! Tara Petersen

Re: broken hood on nordic cruiser

It appears that Simo have gone out of business, and their partner company Bertini is not supporting simo strollers, so I don't think you'll get much joy from them. Best I can think of is to take the stroller to any reasonable machine shop, and get them to make a replacement for the broken part from an appropriate material- it is probably the same or a mirror image of the one on the other side. This shouldn't cost too much, but ask first. A quick solution would be to fix an adlustable strap to the hood, going forwards and backwards from the front near the centre. This strap could then be attached to the handle and to the other end behind the hood. ( best way is a buckle stiched to the hood near the open edge, with one continuous strap running from a loop round the handle, through the buckle, then down to a piece of strong elastic attached to just below the base of the hood at the back. A bit of experimenting with the tension on the elastic should get this working quick enough). This may not be an ideal solution, but it may be easiest and cheapest. Hope this helps, if you need to find a machine shop near you then please give a general area and I can see if i can find you one :)

Maclaren triumph stroller hood broke


Listening to what you have described, it sounds as if the hood clamps have snapped, this does mean a new hood most of the time.
I would suggest that you contact Maclaren at their website, or go to the link below, input your postcode into it and locate the nearest authorised Maclaren Service Agent who will be able to look at it for you.
I hope this helps.,com_wrapper/Itemid,88889245/lang,en/

I got my duo cruiser from my brother,and I dont think I have the piece it takes to hook it to the bike ???? HELP ??????

bigbrad70 - I too had the very same problem. If your Duo cruiser has the spring hitch (a short 1.5 to 2 inch long spring mounted horizontaly in the frame just behind where it connets to the bike) then this is an easy fix. There are three parts needed. First looks something like a figure 8 with one large and one small hole. The second is a latch pin that goes through the first. The third is a washer with some tabs on one side. If you have these things then you have all the parts if not call the InStep customer service line
(800) 242-6110
Monday - Friday, 8am to 5pm (Central Standard Time)

And ask for the SA074 coupler.

If you do not have the spring hitch I think they have adifferent coupler but am not sure as mine has the spring hitch. As for the istallation just go to the InStep website and look up the owners manual for any of the older double bike trailers.

Hope this helps!

P.s. The coupler is back ordered until approximately June 28 but can be pre ordered (I am currently waiting for mine!)

Nee Replacement Nut

Can you possibly take a picture of another nut on the carriage that matches the one you lost?  If so I can probably guide you better.

I don't know where you live but try taking the stroller into a hardware store that has a large selection of both Metric and English hardware.  Threads sizes  are all standardized and so are the nuts.  But there are just different styles to pick from.  You might be able to find the right thread size but he nut won't quite look like the original.  And the question is does it matter?  Look for a self locking nut also. One that has a "nylon" insert often called "Ny-loks".  Keeps the nut from coming off.  Get the right size you might want to replace all of them.

Simo 417 Stroller - wobbly wheels

Sounds like the plastic liners that hold the wheel either on or together have worn out.  They make hundreds of different style wheels.  You can try going to any baby supply store that has replacement wheels that have the "same" mounting configuration and see if you can get new ones.  You might need to replace all the wheels and they may look different but at least you'll almost have a new stroller that doesn't wobble.

Replacement safety belt for stroller

I'm in the same boat! It seems all the strollers on the market have an "integrated" 5 point restraint system, so belts aren't available for individual purchase. If you find something, let me know. Our 6 month old needs to sit up in the stroller now and I'm about to rig up a modified dog leash!

The seat will not snap onto the stroller

Call the company or email your problem. Someone will contact you right away. A Bugaboo retailer told me that they will send you a loaner if they need you to send yours in for repair.
