The model number and date of manufacture can be found on the box and on the frame of the stroller.

Consumers should contact Graco immediately for a free repair kit. Repair kits will be available at the beginning of December 2014. While waiting for a repair kit, caregivers should exercise extreme care when unfolding the stroller to be certain that the hinges are firmly locked before placing a child in the stroller. Caregivers are advised to immediately remove the child from a stroller that begins to fold to keep their fingers from the side hinge area.

Consumers can order their free repair kit by phone at: 1-800-667-8184 between 8h30 a.m. and 5h00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

Customers with questions or concerns can contact our customer service by email at: service@gracobaby.ca or by phone at: 1-800-667-8184.

The installation of the repair kit is very straightforward and a clear leaflet is provided. Additional assistance can be found at by clicking here
