I have a lot of strollers (single and doubles) and I live in an apartment where space is at a premium. I store them in my front closet, but getting them out is kind of a nightmare. However, with The StrollAway from Metrotots ($39.99)– which is a over the door storage hanger for strollers, things got a lot more organized. I can hang up the stroller I use the most (in my case, the Inglesina Zippy), so I can grab it quickly. Now, I found that most strollers, especially an umbrella stroller, will store the easiest by it’s handles. When I tested this out with my Zippy, I found that it didn’t hold so well by the handles. But when I flipped the stroller around and hooked the closing handle in the back of the stroller to the StrollAway, it fit beautifully!
- Mounts securely over the door without drilling or damage
- Spacer included to fit most doors
- Adjustable arms to accommodate most stroller models
- Folds flush against door when on in use
Since I use double strollers also, I asked Mary Ann Malone, the creator of The StrollAway, about hanging a double stroller. She replied, via email, that "Set at it’s widest setting it will hold a Maclaren double. I have a Joovy caboose and obviously hang mine everyday. The official weight limit is 35 lbs, and depending on the handle design, many doubles will work. Also to be considered is the depth of the closet and width of folded stroller." She also told me that they also have other versions in the design phase (wall mount and multi-stroller rack system).
If you live in an apartment or need to conserve space, you are going to love The StrollAway. I was very impressed that it worked so well and was so easy to put up.
