Stroller Defects

Many parents rely on strollers when taking their young children outside of the house. Carrying a child for too long can put a strain on one's back, and many young children cannot walk well on their own for extended periods. While these products can be a huge help for families, parents should also beware of potentially defective strollers. Knowing how to find out about stroller defects and the common types of defects can help parents keep their kids safe from potential harm.

Types of Defects

Defective child products can be especially dangerous because young children are often unable to help themselves if they are hurt in an accident. Some of the common types of stroller defects that parents should watch for include:

  • Loose parts
  • Parts that are easily fractured or broken
  • Defective locking mechanisms
  • Stroller collapse
  • Handlebar defects
  • Use of poor materials
  • Unsafe design

Any of these defects could put a child at risk of serious injury. Before purchasing a stroller, consider checking the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) homepage for any reported defects or recently recalled products. Taking a few minutes to research your stroller purchase now could save your family from the risk of a product defect in the future.
