YOYO Stroller Lock

YOYO Babyzen stroller anti theft padlock

Stroller lock for YOYO Babyzen stroller Victim of its success, the YOYO stroller unfortunately, like all strollers and bicycles, is a target for thieves.

Did you know that on average, a YOYO stroller is resold in just 5 minutes in the used market? And nearly at the price of a new one?

Well, now you do.

Unfortunately, this information is being misused by unscrupulous individuals.

In its greatest strength, its modularity, and therefore the ability to carry the YOYO with one hand, can prove very convenient for a thief.

Fortunately, there are solutions to protect your YOYO.

I personally have never had any thefts with my YOYO strollers, however, two of my bicycles were stolen…

Bikes and YOYO, there is a resemblance.

So here are my tips to prevent your YOYO stroller from being stolen.

Use a YOYO stroller lock or a padlock!

Let me explain.

Does the Babyzen brand sell a YOYO lock ?

The YOYO Babyzen brand does not officially sell a lock to protect your stroller from theft.

Therefore, you should look for locks offered by other brands.

How to attach a YOYO stroller with a lock or padlock? I advise you to always install the lock on an unfolded YOYO stroller.


Because I see on the internet people installing a lock on a folded stroller, so it can’t be unfolded…

Yes, but it is entirely possible for the thief to transport the stroller with the lock and cut it at home.

The solution is to always leave the YOYO stroller unfolded and install your lock.

Either if you can with a post or a bike lock system.

In any case, I advise you to pass the lock through the “YOYO” logo in the middle of the frame and at the same time on the lower part of the frame just below it.

So, it will be impossible to fold the stroller.

Also, a BIG tip, don’t forget to remove all accessories that clip onto the YOYO via adapters.

  • Bassinet YOYO
  • Car-Seat Leg rest
  • Hand mittens
  • Footmuff Cup holder Sunshade Board But also all adapters that can be removed by hand.

What locks for the YOYO stroller ?

The brand creator and I, for my bikes, recommend locks from the ABUS brand preferably 30 cm in size.

Metal locks and U-shaped.

This lock offers the highest level of security possible for your stroller.

I can only recommend it.

Plus, it doesn’t take up much space and can be carried in the stroller’s inner pocket.

So, you can quickly pull it out when you need to leave your stroller unattended for a moment.

What other accessories to prevent YOYO theft ?

An accessory that I use every day and also for my luggage when traveling is a tracking device.

If I say Apple’s AirTags but also Samsung’s SmartTags?

These small devices that you can slip anywhere and thus locate whatever you want whenever you want.

In case of theft, I just take out my phone and immediately locate my stroller. I then communicate the position of the stolen stroller to the police.

An excellent accessory that can hide in places that even thieves wouldn’t think to look for;).

In the linings of fabrics.

But, by the way,
