By now you probably know about the Maclaren Product recall of 11/9. I went online to order my repair kit right away. After two weeks, Maclaren delivered the kit which consists of warning stickers and two covers to keep tiny fingers from getting injured in the elbow joint. Here is the problem: The elbow joint on the umbrella stroller'??s side hinge mechanism "can pose a potential finger hazard to a child when the operator is opening or closing the umbrella stroller."
Maclaren provided the covers free of charge. The instructions were easy to follow and overall I think this is a good solution to the problem. One note: I do think the kits should have arrived faster.
