We love Maclaren strollers (as do millions of moms) so we’re pleased to see them conducting a voluntary recall of all Maclaren umbrella strollers. Evidently a hinge at the elbow joint can pinch little fingers (or worse) if they get in the way while you’re folding the stroller, so they’re offering a free kit with a hinge cover to cover it up.
If you own a Volo (shown), Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, Techno XLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno or Easy Traveller this means you.
No, you don’t have to return your beloved stroller. And you don’t have to panic. Just use this order form and they’ll send you the hinge cover. And in the meantime, keep kids’ fingers occupied with other stuff when you’re folding up that stroller. -Liz
