Using the universal bracket which is supplied with every Rockit. This can stay permanently fitted to the pushchair or pram but can also be removed and re-positioned if required. The Rockit then slots in and out of the bracket very quickly and easily. We also sell spare brackets if you would like to fit one to a different pushchair, stroller or buggy. There is a video to show how easy it is to fit – click in the link at the bottom of the page.
We think so. We designed a universal bracket (included in every box) to fit tubes of all different shapes or sizes, whether they are square, oval or round. Our lead designer spent many a long hour in baby stores testing on 40+ different pushchairs in order to perfect the bracket. We can’t give a 100% guarantee on this because there are always new products hitting the market but we do believe that there should be somewhere on any pushchair that the Rockit will fit.
The Rockit is suitable for use with children from birth up until around 3 years old. Our own children still slept in the pushchair up to age 3, so we think it will be useful for several years if bought at birth.
Yes. We have based the rocking motion on the way parents rock their children by hand. Scientific tests show the vibration level closely mimics the normal hand rocking of a pushchair and the subtle yet soothing movement is gentler than a pushchair moving over paving stones.
The Rockit was designed and tested for pushchairs and prams. A helping hand when you are out and about. Rockit was extensively safety tested by Intertek, a global product testing company and they felt that it might be mounted by a tired parent on a bar inside the cot, where the baby could snag clothing. Because we want to adhere to the highest safety standard for all our products we’re not able to recommend use on cots, cribs or Moses baskets.
The Rockit is not designed to keep a child asleep for an extended period. It is meant to be a helping hand to soothe a baby and help them drift off to sleep or maintain their sleep when the pushchair or pram stops.
The Rockit is showerproof (tested to IPX1 standard). Avoid exposure to prolonged or heavy rain.
1) Use good quality Alkaline batteries. Some cheap batteries are only suitable for low-drain items such as remote controls or clocks. Good quality Alkaline batteries should last much longer.
2) You can use re-chargeable batteries. NiMH rechargeable batteries can last even longer than Alkaline and only cost pennies per charge.
3) Mount the Rockit as close to vertical as possible (pointing up with the button on top). Battery life will be reduced if used flat.
4) Try slower speeds, using the dial on the bottom. Sometimes the best rock can be achieved at a slower speed, it does not always need to be fast!
Zed is suitable from birth upwards. It has been safety tested to 0-36 month toy safety standards. It is also calming for older children and adults too.
Yes, it sends calming vibrations through all types of mattresses including, sprung, memory foam and natural fibre types.
Zed should be positioned at the foot end of the mattress. It doesn’t need to be close to your baby as the vibrations travel through the surface of the mattress. It may also be put down the side of the mattress if required (please note battery life is reduced if not used horizontally).
There are a selection of speeds so you can find the one that works best on your particular mattress and soothes your baby the most effectively. Modes 1-3 are static speeds from slow to faster. The slower speeds are often the most effective as low frequency vibrations travel further though the mattress – but experiment with your mattress and baby’s response. Modes 4-6 are variable speeds which replicate the acceleration and deceleration of a car engine and the rumble of the tyres on the road. Zed times out after one hour of use, after which a single press switches it back to mode most recently used.
Yes. The first 3 presses of the night light button, change the light levels and the light remains on for an hour. The 4th press, indicated by 2 flashes of the light, sets the light level to low and stays on for 12 hours. When the light goes off a single press recalls the most recently used mode.
Zed has been tested to IPX4 standard so it is safe if your little one has an accident!
Yes, Zed can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Do not submerge in water.
Zed does not have a loudspeaker, but it does generate soothing sounds via the vibrations passing through the mattress.
Yes, the vibrations always gently fade-out after one hour. The idea is to get past the 45 minute sleep cycle and into the next cycle and a deeper sleep. This should effectively extend naps, night-time sleeps and help with the transition to a cot/bed. The night light switches off after one hour (or 12-hours in all night mode. )
We have tested Zed for up to 50 hours on one set of batteries. We recommend using good quality alkaline batteries or NiMH rechargeables. Please avoid Zinc batteries – make sure batteries are suitable for “high drain” applications.
The light runs on a single LED which only requires a tiny amount of power to work. The vibration motors require more power to start, so if the batteries are low the motors will stop first and the light will carry on working. Please try new batteries or freshly charged batteries. If this still does not work please contact us or your local distributor for help.
