Question about Bugaboo Gecko Stroller

1 Answer

Handle will not fold down any more

We bought Bugaboo Gecko from new just over a year ago. Recently, when depressing the buttons to fold the handle, it became difficult to fold. Now it will not fold down at all. Unfortuntately we have lost purchase receipts. Is it worth spending money on repairs, or would it be cheaper to get another second hand pram?

Re: Handle will not fold down any more

We hand handle problems, and no receipt. I just called bugaboo with a serial number and they sent a new chassy.

Bugaboo bee pram won't fold - the white button has jammed. How do I releas it?

Not an easy fix the handle unit is all closed in with pop rivets so you need a drill and pop rivet gun just to open it. Try spraying silicon spay in to the inside of the handle where ever can then pull up ******* the release buttons while flexing the joint back and forth.

Bugaboo Gecko Collasped Chassis won't open.


To open the Gecko, follow the steps below:

Stand behind the folded stroller, ensuring the handle is on the top of the stroller.
Bend down and place your hands on the handle bar, DONT lift the pram, make sure it stays on the floor.
Push the white button on the inside of the left hand side of the handle bar.
Pull both triggers (located inside of the handle bar) toward you and lift the handle up.
Stand up-right, and place your foot onto the bottom of the two axles which you can see in front of you (make sure that you have your foot on the axle which connects the two small swivel wheels).
Whilst you are standing, with your hands on the handle bar and your foot on the axle, push the axle outwards with your foot away from you and slightly upwards. This should open the chassis up-right. Please note that the chassis will appear to be unstable and move, this will stop the minute that you click on your carseat/carrycot or seat unit.

I hope this helps.

Handle over the big wheels


To move the handle bar (either for folding or to change into the off-road mode) push the small white button in (located on the inside of the handle bar) and pull both triggers toward you (also located on the inside of the handle bar - on either side) This will enable the handle bar to move.

I hope this helps.

Shaky Handle bar!

Here's the link to the "user manual" which I assume you already have; I have never seen a product that had so many "warnings" that this product has. I'd start by making sure all the "clicks" have been made when setting it up. Look for any loose screws, nuts or damaged parts. If you still don't feel comfortable, (and I wouldn't) I'd call their 800 number listed in the manual. I warenteed for 2 years.
