    Default city select with unity capsule question

    Got my BJCS yesterday and today I was attempting to fit the unity capsule on with the adaptor. It fits on ok and once the strap is done up feels quite secure but it looks too upright. Is it supposed to be like that?

    I took some pics if someone can tell me if it looks right. If I put it any other way it doesn't feel secure 20130418_171954small.jpg20130418_171657small.jpg20130418_171709small.jpg20130418_171729small.jpg20130418_171738small.jpg20130418_171816small.jpg

    It's been a while since I used my unity capsule in my BJCS but that does look a little upright. It seems to be all connected properly. I really can't remember how it works but is there a button at the rear top of capsule to adjust the angle? Maybe look through the manual?
    It could be perfectly ok though as my memory is terrible. My youngest son is 2 next month so it's been a while

    Thanks for the reply. The only thing is the release lever. I have emailed the pics to Baby Jogger so hopefully they will reply soon to confirm it is correct. It would help if I could find some photos of one online but I can't seem to. If I use the adaptor set up for the Peg Perego it reclines further but doesn't feel as secure.

    I got a reply from Baby Jogger that said

    The Safe n Sound Unity capsule is not meant to hook on to that back bar. the A and B bars create a cradle. The capsules sits/cradles inside these bars and do not hook or click onto anything. Otherwise the it is much to upright for a new born.

    Hope this helps others with the same problem. Would be helpful if this was stated in the manual.

    That's great u heard back from them. I looked at your pics again and I think u are using a different cradle thing than what I used too. And I do remember now it just sat in the cradle with the seatbelt/ strap secured over the top.
    Did u try what they said and did it change the angle?

    Yes I did and it worked perfectly. I don't know why they don't explain it in the manual, I just assumed that it would "attach" somehow. I think they updated the adaptors late last year.
