One of the seats on my stroller will no longer stay in the upright position on the recline settings. I cannot tell whether something inside of the recline mechanism has snapped, whether there is a problem with one of the springs, etc.
I purchased my stroller from ebay and one side of one seat would not stay in place it would only stay in the fully reclined position. I took it to a maclaren autorized stoller repair store and it was $37.28 to fix one bracket.

YES! I solved this easily. At the back of the seat where the recline webbing straps are, there are two ends that have male end snaps on them that have female end snaps that are on the back square tubing of the frame. Simply undo those from the frame and add an extra male snap end about 3 1/4 to 3 1/2 inches (on center) down that strap so it can snap into itself. Then it is simple to wrap these around the upper round tubing, just over the bracket for the hood, and snap it back to itself on each side. Presto! It now sits more upright and all that was needed to do was to add that female snap end onto each of those loose straps. You can now even adjust the recline easier (with the snaps still on) or for a full recline, simply unsnap those straps and unbuckle the back and they are now nearly flat.
TO FOLD STROLLER • Close the canopy as described in the canopy section. Recline seat by releasing buckle as described in seatback positioning section. • The stroller is folded by simultaneously pulling each trigger fold. . When the fold latches are released, the handle will begin to fall toward the floor. Release the fold buttons and press downward on the stroller handle until the stroller is completely folded. Secure the stroller in the folded position by hooking the fold latch, located on the right side of the stroller, over the rivet that protrudes from the frame. CANOPY * The canopy features a ratchet system that allows the canopy to be moved forward to block the sun or wind. To adjust the canopy’s position, push forward or backward on the canopy until the canopy is in the desired position. See figure 23. SEATBACK POSITIONING * The seat has a multiple position recline that is controlled by a strap and buckle assembly behind the seat. . To recline the seat, loosen the strap through the buckle and adjust to the required recline position. To place the seat back in the upright position, press upward on the seat back with one hand while pulling the strap through the buckle with the other. The strap will lock automatically. http://www.babytrend.com/download/2007061021349109CT_instructions.pdf
