What is a dual adjust buckle?
Firstly, let’s make it clear what we’re talking about. A dual adjust buckle is one where you can tighten the strap on either side of the buckle. This means you can pull in either direction. This is a great feature on a baby carrier that can be used for front and back carries. Why? Because a single adjust buckle usually means that when front carrying you have to tighten by pushing the strap backwards, which is a tricky motion. However, with dual adjust buckles you can tighten by pulling forwards whether you’re front or back carrying.
What carriers have dual adjust buckles?
Lots of carrier have dual adjust buckles, for example, all Mamaruga carriers, the Integra, Lenny Lamb carrier, Beco and Boba and many more. They are most common on carriers where you can cross the shoulder straps, so, for instance Tula carriers have single adjust straps.
