Stroller Gate Check Bag Part 2

FAIL… well half fail. There are two parts that were difficult to work with.

  1. The strap to keep the stroller shut was not easy to feed through the wheels.
  2. The velcro at the bottom was not strong enough to keep the bag closed.

Sorry to the airport ramp agents that had to handle our stroller. Back to the drawing board with this one. Perhaps a zipper in place of the velcro?

I think that this needs some brain storming.

I made a few adjustments to the gate check bag. I added a few plastic buckles in addition to where the velcro is (issue #2 above). It held up wonderfully! I did not change the way the stroller was held shut (issue #1). Still brainstorming that one.

  1. #1 thing…… use a couple of your hubby’s old leather belts buckled together or pick up a few at thrift store – leather is best. Remember seeing old suitcases held together this way in older films and classics?

    My Peg is made like this. I am ready to find a big bag and do what you did. My stroller does stay together and will roll turned one way and drag the other. I still want mine covered. Thanks and let me know next phase or any new updates.

    I looked strong and hard at Phil&Teds. I bought their bassinet but it uses the seat frame from their Smart Lux. Still in the box. Do you know od anyone looking for one. It is the entire thing but the seat frame.

    Thx
