Which Infant Car Seat Adapter do I need for my BOB Stroller?

Car Seat Adapter for BOB Stroller

Infant car seat adapters are essential when you need to go out with your newborn in a stroller. A car seat adapter connects an infant car seat to your stroller to make a perfect travel system. BOB Gear manufactured strollers have different adapters that are compatible with various infant car seats.

Jogging strollers manufactured before 2011 do not have an accessory adapter, so you’ll have to use infant car seats that clip directly into the stroller’s frame. Those manufactured after 2011 have an accessory adapter through which car seats connect.

Running or jogging with a jogging stroller while using an infant car seat adapter is not recommended: the stroller can become unstable, leading to falls.

About BOB Gear Company

BOB Gear was founded in 1994 by Roger Malinowski and Philip Novotny, who jointly made innovative bike trailers. They later designed and built the first Sport Utility Stroller when they started their families. They tested the stroller with their kids, and, after its success in the market, they introduced the Duallie in 2001, BOB Gear Revolution in 2005, and later others.

In October 2011, BOB Gear Company transferred its ownership to Britax Child Safety Inc, located on 4140 Pleasant Road Fort Mill, SC 29708 United States. Britax continues manufacturing BOB Gear strollers with the same efficiency and durability as the original company. As a result, the strollers continue to be top-sellers across online platforms and physical shops.

BOB Gear continues to help parents stretch the limits of what’s possible with high-performance jogging strollers for big and small adventures. You can check out the new Alterrain Pro Jogging stroller with superior functionality and durability.

BOB Gear Safety Tips

Stroller Activities

If your baby is below six months, you should limit stroller activities to walking. Consult your pediatrician first before embarking on jogging or running with such a baby. However, running or jogging with a car seat embedded in a stroller is dangerous, as the stroller could topple over due to the weight.

Wrist Straps

It would be best if you tied the wrist straps on your hand to keep the stroller from rolling away as you exercise. In addition, it would be best if you lock the parking brake after stopping the stroller. The parking brake ensures that the stroller remains stationary until you unlock it.

Quick Release Lever

If your stroller has a quick-release lever, you should keep it clamped up parallel to the stroller fork to prevent the wheel from loosening. Also, ensure it is locked in the right direction to avoid instability.

Swivel Front Wheels

For strollers with swivel front wheels, you should lock them forward for greater stability during exercise.

What is a Car Seat Adapter?

A car seat adapter is a gadget that connects an infant car seat to a stroller frame. Only infant car seats are compatible with BOB strollers. Other car seats cannot be uninstalled from your car and attached to a stroller.

BOB strollers have metallic adapters that are specific to various car seat brands. Note that adapters are sold separately. In addition, they vary in shape and length depending on the car seat to be attached.

Is A Car Seat Adapter Relevant?

A car seat adapter helps you transform your BOB Stroller into the perfect travel system. Although you can buy a complete travel system from the company, many parents buy a separate stroller and car seat, then connect them into a travel system using adapters. Car seat adapters usually come with the stroller instead of the car seat but are sold as additional items.

Benefits of Using BOB Strollers as Your Daily Travel System

  • BOB strollers have super secure brakes, which can be a life-saver when you need to stop abruptly.
  • Great suspension. BOB copes well on rough roads and pavements.
  • Ease of pushing and maneuverability. You can push BOB strollers with one hand, and they easily go over curbs.
  • BOB strollers fold easily and fit at the back of your vehicle.
  • BOB Gear Company gives a five-year warrant for stroller frames and one year for the fabric and other parts.
  • BOB strollers have lots of storage space and pockets to place your baby’s essentials as you go. You can also place hooks on the handlebar and hang a diaper bag.
  • High weight limit. BOB strollers have a maximum limit of 70 to 75 pounds so that you can use them for several years.
  • You can lock the front wheel for safety as you jog or run and unlock it for walks.
  • The seat reclines almost flat, a convenient feature for newborns and napping.
  • BOB strollers have a peek-a-boo window and a huge canopy to give your baby extra sun protection. 
  • The well-designed five-point harness keeps your baby secure.

Factors to Consider When Searching for a Car Seat Adapter

When searching for car seat adapters for your BOB jogging stroller, consider checking out infant car seats that are compatible with multiple strollers. These include Britax, Graco, Chicco, Peg Perego, Nuna, and Maxi-Cosi. Note that adapters for single jogging strollers are different from those of Duallie jogging strollers.

You should also consider the available features for each car seat, their merits, and detracting factors before making a choice. Consider your child’s weight – a higher weight than specified for the model can make the system unstable.

Car seat adapters are car seat specific; thus, you can only buy an adapter specifically for one car seat.

Before buying, you should also visit the BOB Gear website to check your stroller model and its currently compatible adapters. Unfortunately, adapters for older stroller models may be unavailable, so you should ensure your stroller isn’t too old.

Bottom Line

A travel system gives you the chance to stroll with your newborn. If you have not bought a branded travel system, attach a compatible infant car seat to your BOB Gear jogging stroller using adapters. It is important to check your stroller’s model and manufacturing date to ensure compatibility with the specific car seat.

BOB strollers are among the best jogging strollers currently available. Compatibility with many car seats makes BOB strollers very convenient. Although BOB strollers are superb for jogging and running, they are also excellent daily travel systems for walking your baby out.
