At first the Adapter seemed to be incompatible with the Graco Snugride 35 and the directions were horrible. So I returned it back to Buy Buy Baby. But while I was at the store returning the product, the sales person showed me a floor sample and how to properly install the product. I took pictures and posted them above as it is not intuitive and is not mentioned in the product directions.

The bar must be installed such that it will lock in the seat. You won't hear a click because the bar is a little too small, but it does lock the seat in place.

The belt click must be used. I originally set the belt straight up and over the top of the car seat, but felt that it left no room for the baby to sit in the seat. The sales person at buy buy baby showed me that the belt must not be straight, but must hook around a ledge which holds the seat in place and doesn't interfere with where the baby is sitting.

Finally, the seat is set back underneath the canopy of the baby jogger mini stroller which adds extra protection.

Definitely a must have, especially for your newborn. I've read on someones review that they had to remove the whole seat and was left w/ just the frame itself. We didn't have that problem. We simply snapped the adapter on, secured our car seat on the city mini and we were ready to go; without undoing anything on the city mini. The only complaint I have is that I think the adapter is a little pricey...especially for new parents like us. I'll post a pic w/ the car seat on the city mini soon to show how much the city mini rocks.

I have the City Mini Jogger and the Maxi Cosi "Mico" Car Seat (which i love both dearly) and the adapter works great. I kinda wish it made a clicking noise when its secured in the stroller, but it just makes the side buttons pop out...which is fine for me too. There were a bunch of other adapters with bars and stuff for other car seats, but I only needed the side ones...nice! (Especially since you can leave the attachments in when you want to collaps the stroller!) Enjoy!

Strong, nice construction, holds the car set well, and breaks down quickly. We use it when we're traveling/flying, and it's easy to set up or disassemble in the airport.

Very helpful, makes my stroller more useful. Now I can use my stroller with an infant car-seat. I'll recommend it to everybody who has a Baby Jogger Stroller.

All right, let me say that I LOVE my CITY MINI and this little adapter is a necessary component if you want to gain FULL use out of your stroller. I've had this adapter for a year (my daughter is nearly 12 months) and I used the Grace SnugRide 35 Car Seat for it--That is what many other reviews said to purchase as it fit best for the adapter.

PROS
1. Still Folds up great when attached to the City Mini--lugged this through airport securities all over the country and fits going thru the x-ray machine.
2. Easy to take off if you want to just use the stroller without the car seat adaptor
3. Allows for versatility when using the City Mini
4. The actually bar is sturdy however...

CONS
1. The plastic buckle that keeps the car seat extra secure, broke within 3 months of use. It was still partially attached so I didn't return it and since you don't run with the car seat in place, I wasn't too worried.
2. Pricey, for what it is. Thin aluminum bar and plastic.

RESULT
Since I LOVE my City Mini--this was a MUST for us...it really has allowed us to be able to use the infant carrier or just stroller as she got older. Although we still use the attachment because we live in a condo and it makes it easier for us to transport our daughter to the car if we have bags or anything. Really, it just needs to be made from more durable materials or at least drop the price by $25.

I read a ton of these reviews and was scared I would never figure this thing out and/or would hate it. Neither turned out to be true. Took me about 5 minutes to put together. Somewhere in the reviews a very nice man posted a short youtube instructional video--watch it. I did that first and it looked so easy that I no longer felt intimidated by the contraption and I didn't even have to read the directions (he has the city select but you install the exact same way with the city mini). Just make sure you: a) use the lower of the two sets of connector holes on the side of the city mini (ie NOT the holes that held the canopy, which you remove); b) don't mix up left and right, and c) know that "head" refers to the head of the car seat (which faces backwards), not the stroller. I do hear a loud click when the car seat is set in the right spot. That said, you can still remove the car seat if you haven't put the red safety latches down. As long as the red safety toggle latch things are down, even though the car seat can move around and wobble a bit it will NOT come out. If you click the safety belt closed (which I really don't think is that big a deal to do) that car seat ain't going anywhere.

So all in all, yes this thing is overpriced but I'm glad I can use the stroller with the car seat for the first couple months. I thought about getting a snap n go but for me it's worthwhile to just not have so many confounded large items sitting around. At least this item is small and when it's no longer necessary I will just put it away in the closet somewhere and it won't take up too much space.

Oh, also, yes, I do wish the canopy could be used. That needs to be fixed somehow.

Addendum 12/13/12: I used this once.
