Q: How big is SCOUT?
SCOUT is compact. SCOUT is easily held in one hand and even fits in an aircraft overhead compartment.
Q: Is it hard to drive and park with SCOUT?
No. SCOUT holds strollers close and low so rearview visibility and maneuverability are not impaired. We designed SCOUT to be a subtle and elegant vehicle accessory.
Q: You mention BOB brand jogging strollers. Will SCOUT work with other brands as well?
Our initial design is optimized for the BOB Revolution given their popularity. Our next planned version is for the BabyJogger. Use the "Have a Question" link below to tell us which brand you'd like us to design for next.
Q: Will SCOUT work with all BOBs, old and new?
Yes. SCOUT handles all BOB Revolutions...SE, Flex, and Pro...and the new Rambler. We even have a special model that accommodates a 16" front wheel found on BOB's classic Sport Utility, Ironman and their new Blaze stroller.
Q: Is SCOUT easy to install?
SCOUT is so easy - It weighs 10 pounds and only takes 10 seconds to install. You secure it with a nifty hex key that we provide. Socket wrench not required!
Q: Will my stroller be secure?
Yes. SCOUT has redundant security points.
Q: Where is SCOUT made?
Q: How did you come up with SCOUT?
SCOUT was born out of necessity. We like to stay active with the kiddos. One of our favorite activities when they were very young was biking and jogging around Town Lake in downtown Austin. Getting there with all our stuff was another story!
Q: What if it starts raining while we're out and about?
Many jogging strollers have rain shields for the little ones. Similarly, we have an easy to use rain cover to protect your investment from the elements.
Q: Do I need a hitch?
Yes. A standard 2" type.
Q: Do I have a hitch?
Most SUVs are equipped with them at the factory as are many Crossovers. Hitches are often concealed behind a small plastic cover, even on large SUVs. They are typically an option on sedans, wagons, and minivans.
Q: My vehicle doesn't have a hitch. Where can I go to have one installed?
A local hitch dealer can get you set up in less than a half hour. Our favorite is CURT Manufacturing brand. They are made in the US.
Q: Ugh...I have the smaller 1 1/4" hitch on my vehicle...What do I do?
Fear not! Simply purchase a short adapter from your local hitch dealer.
Q: Which one do I buy...SCOUT or SCOUT Low?
This depends on your vehicle. Simply measure distance from ground to hitch. If 14" or less, then go with SCOUT Low. You'll avoid bottoming out in driveways and get maximal leverage for loading your BOB.
Q: Will my vehicle lift gate still open?
This too depends on your vehicle. We designed SCOUT to sit close to the vehicle to minimize risk of stroller contact with the ground. If you leave the front wheel in swivel mode, the stroller leans backward providing additional clearance. This method is shown in our web video. Another option is to rotate your BOB out of the way by placing its back wheels on the ground while leaving the front wheel anchored in SCOUT. And yet another option if SCOUT interferes with lift gate operation is to simply add a hitch extender.
Q: Where can I see SCOUT in action?
