The Baby Jogger Summit models have both a parking brake AND a control brake on both rear wheels, plus a safety handle wrist strap.

The Control Brake can be useful to slow down the pushchair if you are moving at speed or help maintain control on a steep slope.

Rear Wheel Parking Brake


Both of the rear wheels have a brake cog into which a metal rod slides to prevent them from turning.

The metal rod is operated by a brake lever
  • push the lever down to engage the brake
  • pull up to disengage

Note that the rod may not be aligned with the cog, a gentle rocking motion of the pushchair while engaing the brake will enable smooth operation and avoid damage to the brake cog.

WARNING - Engage Parking Brake before loading and unloading passenger

Safety Wrist Strap


A safety wrist strap is attached to the handlebar, always loop your wrist through the strap before setting off, even if you are walking on flat level ground - if you always do it then you will never forget.

Should you stumble and let go of the handlebar the wrist strap prevents the pushchair from rolling away from you.

If you are on a slope and let go of the handle without the wrist strap, then the pushchair can run away from you and very quickly accelerate to a speed you cannot catch up with !

Note. If you lose your Safety Wrist Strap we can supply a replacement, to order a new one click here
