Phil & Teds Improved Mechanism for fitting brakes to Explorer and Hammerhead Strollers
Whilst the previous construction (Series 1; January 2011 and earlier) passed all safety certification, testing of the new method of fitting brakes has shown it to be significantly more durable.
Phil & Teds implemented the upgrade in production some months ago, creating ‘Series 2’ Explorer and Hammerhead buggies. Series 1 Explorer and Hammerhead buggies are identifiable by serial numbers between 0610/0001 and 0111/4788.
No other stroller is affected. Our solution is a simple frame swap that, in the case of the Explorer can be implemented easily at home by the customer, or for the Hammerhead at our repair centre.
Any customer potentially qualifying is best to register on-line for the free frame swap via the Phil & Teds website: www.philandteds.com/support
. Alternatively they can call our customer care team on 01234 344230 or email email@example.com
. We will then send a frame kit direct to them, which will include full instructions.
Phil & Teds Sport V2 / Classic V1 Buggies Issue of Free Hinge Covers
Phil & Teds have announced their intention to issue free hinge covers for the discontinued Sport V2 and Classic V1 buggies. This action is in response to a small number of reported cases of adult users getting a finger caught in the hinge, causing injury.
The kit consists of a simple plastic cover that can be slotted into place on the affected buggies hinge, preventing fingers being inadvertently placed in the hinge when the user is folding the buggy.
Cosatto Stratford Cot Bed in White or Nut manufactured between 01/09/2005 and 18/03/2009
Cosatto have developed a safety enhancement device for the above mentioned product which improves the security if it is moved or lifted for any reason.
Due to the two piece cot bed end construction, it is possible to create a gap between the lower and upper cot bed leg sections, with the possibility of injury to parent or child. It is also possible that, in some cases, partial disassembly of the drop side mechanism may occur, rendering the cot bed unsafe.
If you think you own a Cosatto Stratford Cot Bed, in either white or nut finish, please check the Product Description Label. Then check the Date Code Label to see if your cot bed is affected. You will find these labels on the mattress base slats.
The only versions affected have Date Code Labels dated from 01/09/2005 to 18/03/2009 (inclusive) and were sold throught UK and Ireland.
Please note: Stratford Cot Beds manufactured after this date are unaffected.
Once you have carried out the above checks and you think you may have a Stratford Cot Bed that is affected, please contact Cosatto immediately via 0870 0505900 (selecting option 1 when prompted) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cosatto will send out, by return post and without charge, a component, an Allen key and fitting instructions to enable you to easily complete the safety enhancement.
