Questions & Answers for Contours Contours® Options® Tandem

Question

What type of car seat fits?

I
can't seem to find this product locally so I would have to order online
and without testing out car seats, I can't tell from your information
which brands and models fit for sure so I don't get caught with a
purchase I can't use. Can you please tell me which car seats fit?

I can say honestly that we don't have the name car seat and most will fit it as it does have a seatbelt for the carseat also and the ones that don't fit we put in the back seat and it works well because you can face that back seat towards you while you are pushing and it sits in there nicely enough too so that you can even cover the shade over the carseat as well. Not to mention the seating is great for infant up. I ahve 11 children and loved the stroller so much that we actually bought two of them! I hope this helps.

Yes it can be used for newborn babies, it features a full recline on both seats (not the car seats). I used it on my premature twins, (they were 31 weekers) from the day we brought them home. I never had any problems.

Thank you for your interest in the Contours® Options® Tandem Stroller! Yes, the stroller can be used with newborn babies as it is compatible with a number of infant car seats. (You should only transport infants that are within the size and weight limitations of your Infant Car Seat, as described in the instruction manual provided by the Infant Car Seat manufacturer.) For more information about what car seats the Contours® Options® Tandem II Stroller can accommodate, you can view the instruction manual here: http://www.kolcraft.com/media/S82_ZT009.pdf

The Contours® Options® Tandem Stroller seats recline in three positions: upright, middle, and full recline. And, in select models, you can use the infant neck roll for use with newborns who can not hold up their head.

For more information, visit www.kolcraft.com or call Customer Service at 800-453-7673. Thank you!

When my daughter was born we took our kids to Sea World and it worked great! My 3 year old road up front and we use the chair in the full recline position for my newborn and my husband was surprised how much the bottom basket holds! We have a large SUV so it works for us! I love my stroller and the options!

I've taken my Contours Tandem everywhere. It's great in airports, a little difficult in security, but I'd rather that than having to chase my twins around. We check it at the gate for free. It is definitely worth it if you have 2 little ones who aren't ready to walk long distances by themselves.

If you are looking for a lighter version of our Contours tandem strollers, you may be interested in looking at our new Contours Optima tandem stroller which only weighs 36.6 pounds, but still offers robust features like our trademark reversible seats, 2 parent cup holders and storage area, 2 child cup holders, an extra-large storage basket, and an infant car seat attachment.

It will fit if you have a larger trunk- you probably will have to take off the seats. I had a lincoln ls and the trunk was quite large. I took off both seats and laid them on top of each other. It fit fine, but if you have a small trunk chances are it will not fit

We're glad to hear that you are enjoying your Contours® stroller! The Contours® Options® Tandem stroller has an easy trigger fold and a convenient free-stand feature which allows the stroller to stand on its own.

When folded, the Contours Options Tandem stroller is 24 x 25 x 42 inches. You can also remove both seats for a more compact fold.

I actually had this stroller for my daughters, they weren't twins so I didn't need both of the car seat attachments, but it is an extra car seat adapter that you place on the bars of the stroller to place the car seat in. It only comes with one, so you have to buy the second one separate. Here is a link to it:http://www.kolcraft.com/products/strollers/Tandem/173-infant-car-seat-attachment-for-contours-options-tandems

The Contours® Options® Tandem stroller allows you to attach either one or two infant car seats with our infant car seat attachment(s). The stroller comes with one infant car seat attachment, which fits most car seat brands on the market. If you need a second infant car seat attachment, you can purchase it separately by using the reorder form found in the instruction manual here: http://www.kolcraft.com/media/S82_ZT009.pdf

Please note that infant car seats are not included with the stroller.

Question

Strap in basket, what is it for?

I know that the strap on the infant car seat attachment is to secure the car seat to the frame, but what does the strap in the stroller basket do? Is it to more securely fasten the stroller when collapsed?

I just read in the instruction booklet that they are for securing one of the seats you take off for folding. You have to remove one of the seats to fold the stroller, then once the stroller is folded, you tuck the seat in and secure it with the straps.
