Stroller security

It’s no surprise that Bernal Heights has a completely different class of theft problems. Stroller theft, to be exact. It’s said that a nice stroller can fetch up to $100 on the black market.

Nice try at security here pops, but anyone carrying a hex wrench could detach that handle in minutes, leaving you with a long walk home carrying a sobbing baby. Here are some time-tested tips:

  1. Cover the stroller with stickers. A thief is less likely to want to deal with removing a bunch of stickers to make the item sellable.
  2. Get a beater stroller. Sorry, but having nice things comes at a cost. Spare yourself the heartbreak of losing something extremely valuable. I hear www.strollersdirect.com has some decent rides that wont break the bank.
  3. Leave an ugly decoy baby in the stroller while it is unattended. Nobody wants an ugly baby.

    Isn’t the second point a bit like the whole – don’t use your iphone on 24th street argument from a few days ago/what right do people have to stop me using it/this isn’t an invitation to mug me/steal my stuff???

    How about a ban on breeders?
