Bugaboo Frog Handle Won't Lock in Place

My Bugaboo Frog handle won't totally lock in place when the large tires are in the back and small wheels are in the front. There seems to bee too much give and can move it up and down a lot. I can't tip the stroller back by pushing down on the handle to go up a curb anymore. The right side seems to be worse than the left and I can hear it trying to click in, but it can't.

How do you change the handle direction, we have the small wheels at the rear and would like them to be at the front


Just use the handle release buttons to un-lock the handle and swing it over to the other side than release the seat by pressing the two square buttons and turn it around so baby still faces you. www.fixya.com/support/r9134331-assemble_frog_or_cameleon

Hi, when I open my Bagaboo Frog stroller and flick the front (small wheels) out, they dont lock into place. This means when i am walking if I lift the pram up to go onto a curb, those small front wheels...


The chassis is locked by the seat or bassinet unit clicking down onto the black prongs that stick up from the central hubs. It would be mechanically impossible for the front wheel assembly to swing back if the seat was fully engaged into the hub as it has a large plastic block that fits into the hubs to lock them. Remove the seat check for any obvious damage, spray some silicone spray on the prongs and the square white lock buttons. Wipe of excess with a paper towel than try to fit seat again. macnutz_13.jpg

We have a great boogaboo.. we love it and our daughter too. Yet since last week a piece is broken. Now the stroller does not stand anymore..just lays down... we cannot blocked anymore.. what to do?


Not sure what you mean by can't stand anymore? The Bugaboo is made up of three shaft sets coming of a central hub. The front wheels are one set the back wheels another, they lock in place by the seat unit locking into the central hub. This is very robust and rarely fails. The third set is the handle and this is not very robust and prone to failure. Quite often it will either lock up in one position and not move or it won't lock at all and the handle becomes floppy.
You have two options if your Bugaboo is out of warranty. Buy a new frame, this is around a third of the cost of a new Bugaboo but will add value to your resale price or repair it. Here's my How to fix a Bugaboo Handle instructions Cost varies depending on what parts you need to repair or replace.

If you are not a handy person type, take these instructions to you local Bicycle Mechanic or Small engineering shop.

The bugaboo handle fault is caused either by two small plastic pins shearing of a plastic disk that actuates two metal locking rods or one or both locking rods breaking. Why bugaboo uses plastic for the disk and aluminum for the locking rods is beyond me! They are critical components with a history of failing!

1/ Remove the capped star lock washer. This is the hardest part of the job. Most people try to leaver this off in the hope of re using. First problem with this is you will mark or damage the surrounding plastic, second is the star lock is not intended for reuse and will never hold as well as when first used, so best find a new replacement. A hardware store should be able to source some for you. Quickest way to remove a capped washer is to carefully cut a slot in the dome with an angle grinder and then use a large screwdriver to carefully prize one side up so you can fit another screwdriver under it. Note the walls of the aluminum hub axel are thin and easily distorted, make sure you only lever the capped star lock and not the hub axel. Use one screwdriver as a support and another to lift off the capped star lock.

Note it is best to open and repair one side at a time, so your moving and flexing one side of the handle does not dislodge parts in the other side. The hub and disks are mirrors of each other and not interchangeable. The locking rods are interchangeable. The side with the brake lever is left side. The Bugaboo parts will have an "L" after their serial numbers.

2/. The lock mechanism is very simple; a wire rod rotates a plastic disk. Check the hubs for wear. If too badly worn or damaged you will have too much movement in the locked position. The Frog and Chameleon use the same plastic hub find another frame to salvage hubs from. You may also get the disks and rods from it. The hub is held in by a single aluminum rivet.
The disk has two plastic pins that move the locking rods in and out of the inner hub into and out of the outer hub. You need to either repair the disk by drilling out the pin stumps and finding a replacement metal screw you can fit / glue in. Or (my preferred choice) have amore robust metal disk fabricated.

3/. Reassemble handle locking hub and check operation. If wire rods seem to be in the incorrect position, loosen the top plastic fittings where the handle extends from by removing the small self-tapping screws and wiggle things into alignment. (I use a small amount of silicon grease used for taps to give a smooth action) If all is working well fit the new capped star lock on the hub shaft and tap home. To protect the dome finish I use a large socket from my socket set and an old rubber washer from a toilet cistern. Repeat operation on the other side if necessary.

I have parts available both laser cut metal disks with stainless steel pins and replacement locking rods made in stainless steel. Also capped star lock washers if you can't find them. You can contact me at macnutz@xnet.co.nz

How do you open a bugaboo frog pram stroller


Hi,

To open the Frog, 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 out 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.

Don't worry, this is normal. Once you lock the seat into place, the front bar stays put, even if you hop a curb.
