How to fix a Bugaboo Handle


If you are not a handyperson 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. Why bugaboo uses a plastic disk for this critical component is beyond me! Or a broken locking rod


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 star locks are 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 a screwdriver. Note the walls of the aluminum hub axel are thin and easily distorted, make sure you only lever the capped star lock and not 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 side with the brake lever is left 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 ware. 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. They are 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 a new metal disk fabricated that will last a lifetime.

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 the 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


I have parts available laser cut metal disks with stainless steel pins, replacenment locking rods in stainless steel and capped star lock washers you can contact me at macnutz@xnetHi, the main hinge (side silver hinge) on my - macnutz_14.jpg/>

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.

Cannot fix the angle of the seat (Frog), the large white buttons at the hinge get stuck once pressed, tried lubricating, but still would not become unstuck.


Email to bugaboo to describe your problem they will ask for the serial number of the pram and your address & send you a repair kit (new white buttons) - for free!

Bugaboo frog and wheeled board not fitting??


Had exactly same experience today. I emailed Bugaboo (via website) and got a reply the same day.

I attached the clips the wrong way round. The picture in the manual is not very clear....The little 'roofs' have to face each other and than you are able to push the clips further over the axle. The slot of the clip fits over where the small wheels comes in on the bar.

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.
