The Baby Jogger Car Seat adapter is designed to allow a Graco SnugRide car seat to be installed on a Baby Jogger City Mini series stroller. However upon installation the car-seat does not seat firmly on the adapter, instead the hinges of the car seat adapter 'balance' on the uprights of the car seat adapter, making it very unstable and unsafe. The manufacturer provides a nylon strap to secure the car seat to the adapter, however this does not provide a secure car seat (unlike when it's used with a car seat base in a car).

I will be returning the product to Baby Jogger, as I don't want my 3-month old daughter placed in any danger with this product. Similar consumers have had similar problems, as evidenced by the comments on the amazon.com website )http://www.amazon.com/Baby-Jogger-Car-Seat-Adaptor/product-reviews/B00155UGTO/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1)

Comment from Newell Rubbermaid Inc. 8/17/2011
Based on the information provided in the report, the Graco SunugRide® car seat was not involved in or related to the expressed concern. The actual product of concern is a stroller that is not manufactured by Graco. Graco does not recommend or condone the use of any Graco car seat in conjunction with another manufacturer’s stroller. Graco car seats should only be used with Graco brand strollers as appropriate and per Graco’s product instruction manuals.
