Useful, but poorly made
July 11, 2015
While I absolutely love my Nuna Pipa and the City Elite as my choice of car seat and stroller; my only regret with my purchases is that I absolutely needed this adapter to make my $700 car seat/stroller combo work as a travel system. IMHO, this is a cheaply made part that could have use a lot of improvements in design and thus, in end user usability. While I do agree with the other reviewer that Nuna shares some of the design flaws, Baby Jogger does ultimately manufacture, advertises and sells this adapter. While the initial setup/install was pretty straight forward, both my husband and I find that trying to click in/remove the car seat (even sans baby) from the stroller to be a fussy process that takes a copious amount of fiddling than there really needs to be. What one would expect to be a simple and seamless process of clicking in the car seat to the stroller is actually pretty difficult in real life practice as the adapter simply gets stuck in weird/awkward positions every step of the way. At times it even takes force to lock into position. At this point I can't even imagine the process with an infant actually in the seat. If you are wondering, no, this is not an issue when I'm securing my car seat into the car seat base. My husband and I took every step in attempt to improve our experience to no avail. As an ambidextrous person who has always had good spacial intelligence, this frustrated me to no end. Lastly, I also find the skinny parachute strap that actually holds down the car seat to the stroller to be of the most inelegant design. It's literally just a strap that you wrap around the car seat across the top. For this price, I just expected more. If you are considering a travel system using this part, I would suggest trying it out at the store as I wish I would had done, it could be a deal breaker.
