Using Cargo Hold 37 Panniers with child seats

Using Cargo Hold 37 Panniers with child seats

Cargo Hold 37 Panniers can be used with the Tern GSD and HSD. These two bikes also support Thule Yepp Maxi and Nexxt Maxi child seats. However, if you wish to use the Panniers and child seats together, please note the following conditions.

With an HSD

Cargo Hold 37 Panniers can be used with a Yepp child seat on the HSD, but because the foot rests for the child seat will extend into the inside of the Panniers, the Panniers can only be used in bucket mode, as seen in the picture below.

With a GSD

Cargo Hold 37 Panniers can also be used with a Yepp child seat on the GSD. But if you are using two Yepp Maxi child seats, then the footrest for the rear child seat will extend into the inside of the Panniers and also block the Fidlock magnetic buckle that secures the Panniers.

In this situation, you will need to use a Pannier Adapter. The Pannier Adapter is a small nylon strap that extends over the rear rack of the GSD and features a female part of the buckle on each end of the strap. The male part of the buckle from the Panniers can then attach to these female parts to secure the Panniers.

Note: Cargo Hold 37 Panniers can only be used in bucket mode when used with the Pannier Adapter. Also, if you are only using one Yepp child seat with the GSD, place the seat in the front position on the rack so that the Pannier Adapter will not be required for using Cargo Hold 37 Panniers.
