Will this work for the Chicco Keyfit 30 carseats? Will this work for the Chicco Keyfit 30 carseats? I decided on the Chicco carseats due to the larger weight range than most, but am wondering if they will fit into the double snap and go that I hear is so wonderful for twins.
Baby Trend's website says that it will work with the chicco keyfit and keyfit 30. Based on that information we bought this stroller, and just got two keyfit 30 carseats yesterday. Unfortunately, contrary to the baby trend's website, they DO NOT fit. I cannot find any way to make them secure in this stroller.
I have been searching the internet to find out what happened. It turns out that people have used the 1304TW model with chicco's carseats. I believe that is an older model. The 1305TW, which is listed here on amazon and at most other places on the internet, will not work with chiccos.
I'm very frustrated with BabyTrend's website. They should not claim compatibility if only their older models which are no longer available are compatible.
I spent way too much time trying to get this to work- I really want it to work- but it doesn't. Here's my video showing the problems I have with getting 2 Chicco Keyfit 30's into the Baby Trend 1305TW model stroller. I agree with Shu-ling Liang from above...if the stroller frame was one inch longer it would work. I don't know what changed from the Sept 2009 YouTube video where the lady shows this working- but either Baby Trend changed the dimensions of the stroller, Chicco changed the dimensions of the Keyfit 30, or both changed. Please feel free to let me know if you see that I'm doing something wrong. A video of someone being able to do this successfully would be most helpful.
We bought this model and the Chicco Keyfit 30 carseat and could not find any way for them to fit securely, even after watching the video posted in the above comment. There just simply isn't enough room for both carseats to fit securely. I also found the instruction manual for the 1305TW and if you scroll down to Bar Location Chart Chicco is not even on the list.

The Chicco Key Fit 30 carseats DO FIT. I use mine all the time with two of these car seats. They are very secure as well. I suggest watching the you tube video for help. TIP: Be sure the first seat is completely strapped in before inserting the second one. Seat the car seat closest to you first.
