Jogging Strollers

I searched this topic and didn't find anything but please forgive me if I missed something. Here is our problem - we pulled out the jogging stroller that hadn't been used in almost 2 years (our son outgrew it and now our daughter is big enough for it) and the straps had deteriorated. It's really not safe to put her in but the rest of the stroller is in great shape. Can you put new straps in a stroller? I am sure that the warranty is gone, we have had it for about 4 years and it's been used a lot. Any suggestions are appreciated.

It is like anything - it is generally as safe as the person using it. Im sure that you will be ok if you are concerned enough to think that way!

if jogging strollers are like everything else these days, it'll probably cost as much to replace the straps as it will to buy a new stroller (unless it's a high-end stroller).

Figure if you paid less than $150, the parts won't be replaceable or will be prohibatively expensive to fix. And if you paid more than $150, the same probably applies, but at least you can complain to customer service. :)

I take it to a seamstress or a place does does re-upolstery. They may be able to help. I know my sister has a heavy duty sewing machine and does a brisk little side business recovering the seats of boats (the seats wear out quickly from exposure), and I suspect something like that would be quick work for her. It may not be exactly like the original ones, since you wouldn't want to totally disassemble it, but it would be firm and safe. Can't hurt to find a little shop and ask. A shoe repair place may also be able to help. I had a purse strap repaired in 5 minutes at one while I waited and it costs me $8, but it saved me a $60 purse. Good luck and I know you may not be able to justify the cost of a repair, but kudos to you for investigating and not just dumping something that is otherwise perfectly good.
