Problems with releasing front wheel lock

I have always had this problem with my Zooper. The front wheel which is supposed to release and swivel, won't release. You can move the brake switch but it doesn't quite losen up all the way. I am forced to always use it as a stationary wheeled stroller. Please help shannon

I have just fixed my stroller which had a similar problem. The wheel was still swivelling but it was sticking slightly. I noticed that the pin that locks the wheel in place was half out and therefore the wheel was getting caught on it. I undid the nut that holds the end of the wheel lock cable in place and tightened this as tight as I could which pulls the pin back into place (making sure that the switch is in swivel position). I then put the washer and nut back on (making sure cable was as tight as possible).

If you have model 9109CT or 9139CT, it has a lock for the swivel action. Instructions for releasing the lock are included in this pdf file:

Our zooper boogie red jogger stroller has had problems for a long time, the front wheel is very hard to push and lock, the whole stroller seems really hard to handle, it just wont turn or go where it needs...

Hi I had a similar problem with mine. I ended up just tightening the cable that connected the front wheel to the lock. (screw-like connector bolt under lock) You may want to adjust the cable as well sounds like it needs to be loosened maybe. I hope that I helped. Good luck! :)

The front wheels on my Maclaren XLR keep locking up

Hi,

When you click the wheel release (to make them go onto swivel mode) press a little harder as it sounds like you haven't fully engaged the release mechanism.

I hope this helps.

Broken front wheels on zooper double stroller

All is not lost yet, Contact Zooper directly to see if this can be fixed before throwing out your stroller.
[email protected] 1-888-742-9899 They have an online submission form on their website under the FAQ -"I have an older zooper stroller. How can I go about getting parts or service?" but when I went there, it seemed to be a warranty registration link instead.

Good Luck! from Moms Just Know

Zoooper buddy stroller

No, there's no way to make it swivel. The Zooper Boogie has a swivel wheel- or it can be locked into place with the flip of a switch!

Making my zooper available to 2 children with an attachment

First of all, a heartfelt congratulations! Second, it's definitely challenging having children so close together.

The Zooper Boogie is a good stroller and it's engineered in a VERY specific way to provide baby safety and comfort. It does this by providing a slightly lower center of gravity focused on the rotating single front wheel. This makes it more maneuverable for parents and keeps baby at the center of the swivel. Attaching a second compartment on the front or back of this particular carriage would undermine the engineered balance, tremendously. At least one occupant would suffer from an extended swing when maneuvering that could be more than just uncomfortable, especially if it was extended forward over the front wheel. Some stroller companies might be willing to do this, Zooper doesn't.

The best alternative that they offer is the Tango which is engineered for two. I know that you mentioned that you wouldn't purchase a double stroller but modifying a single might be uncomfortable and possibly dangerous for your little ones. I would recommend against it.

Once again, congratulations on your blessings!
