I'm using this on my 2016 City Mini GT Double ...
I'm using this on my 2016 City Mini GT Double with my Graco Click Connect 35 LX carseat. Snapping in the left side adapter was a piece of cake, but the right side took a few tries. However, there was an audible click and it feels very secure. You do have to remove the canopy in order to install these (only on the side you are installing the car seat on). Clicking in the car seat correctly is a tad tricky at first but with some practice it's much easier. It feels VERY secure once it's clicked in correctly. My adapters did not come with a manual, so I downloaded it from the baby jogger website.

Works on older stroller IF.....
It works with an older stroller IF you modify it. Not sure why they would change it but I was able to make it fit my 2010 stroller but I had to alter it. I cut away some plastic with my soldering iron and now it fits in. I can't recommend that anyone does the same since you may make it unsafe for your baby but it is possible. Again. It will not work unaltered, I basically melted the plastic away until the latch would catch on the connector on the frame. If you are not looking to jury rig it on an older stroller then I suggest you find another solution. I'll attach a picture showing what I had to do.

Some hints, trick, and info
Some helpful hints for some of the concerns in other reviews. Pros and cons. I had some issues and ended up calling Baby Jogger and their customer service was great. First, it is a little difficult at first to line up and connect the Graco car seat but with a little practice it does click right in and feels secure. Some tricks: you do not have to recline the seat to put the car seat on. The lip of the car seat where the baby's feet is goes over the Velcro strip not inside the top of the stroller seat. I made that mistake and the car seat would not come off easy at all. Make sure you take off the canopy of course before installing adapters and car seat. Second issue, the canopy on the opposite side cannot open and close with the car seat on. If you want to use the canopy for say an older child on the opposite side; open it first then put the carseat on. The sides of the car seat will dent in to the canopy but it is material and plastic there ; not metal. That is just a design flaw but if you can deal with that then this is the only way to connect a car seat. They said you can put a newborn directly in the stroller with the seat reclined all the way if you would like. I personally like using a car seat when they are less than 5-6 months but that is my preference. I hope this helps other people that had questions and problems like I did at first.

This part won't fit if your stroller was manufacturered prior to 2016
If your stroller's manufacture date is before 2016, this attachment won't fit and you won't be able to find the accessories for your stroller anymore. My parents bought us the city mini double in May 2017, and then I bought this adapter so we could use it with our graco infant car seat. The right side slides in and clicks no problem, the left side doesn't fit. The manufacture date on the stroller is 2015, and the manufacture date on the adapters is 2016. in 2016, baby jogger had the bright idea to slightly change the stroller so none of the new accessories would fit with the older strollers. My stroller was purchased from babies r us in 2017, and when I called to talk to them about exchanging for a newer manufacture year they said they didn't even have the 2016s, but still had a bunch of the 2015s. Baby Jogger gets an F rating from me and after an hour with their customer service, sending videos and photos, I still got no where. Save yourself the trouble and buy another brand of stroller

Attaches car seat to stroller as designed.
This attachment works as intended to attach a Baby Jogger or Graco car seat to the City Mini double stroller . These slide up under the handle. Two little knobs on the car seat click into the attachment to secure the seat to the stroller.
Using these, the car seat is much higher than the seat next to it. This does help prevent my older son from trying to play with his new baby brother.
The car seat felt secure to the stroller.
It is a little more difficult to get both lined up correct so that the car seat snaps in versus our other Graco strollers, but they do work.
You have to remove the canopy section from the stroller on that side in order to use these.
The other seat’s canopy can stay on, but it does get caught on the car seat. We were able to bend the canopy a little to get it pulled over my older son.

If you have the baby jogger stroller and a graco car seat you need to attach, this is your only option.
Pro- the attachments fit well and are easy to click in
Cons- you are not able to use the stroller shade on the side with this attachment. This is not great because with sun and rain you have to have your own solution to shield your infant
-the attachments are huge making the Carseat sit way high compared to your other child. I figured my toddler could gaze at our infant as we stroll, not the case
I would still purchase as the stroller is too awesome to avoid because of this attachment. Or if guess get a different car seat?

Simple and easy to use
I already had a Graco click connect car seat from my first baby, so it was important to me that I was able to use it with the City Mini Double GT I just got with the arrival of our second child. The stroller is brand new so I believe it is the 2017 model. The adapter installed very easily where the retractable shade normally goes, it just clicks in. I really appreciate that I do not need to reinstall this every time- the stroller folds easily with the adapter still attached, although it sticks out from the otherwise sleek folded stroller. I just place the stroller in my trunk with the adapter side up just like you would with a snack tray or something else attached.

I don't even know where to start with this. I used it today for the first time and while shopping at the mall the car seat fell off and my eight week old baby hit the floor. There is no click or anything when you put the seat on so you're just guessing whether it's secure or not. This is my fourth kid and probably my tenth stroller and I'm still in shock that it happened. I won't be using this attachment again.

but I wish it were better designed. For one thing
There isn't really another option if you want to put a car seat on the City Mini double stroller, but I wish it were better designed. For one thing, when you fold the stroller, they stick out into the air, meaning that you need to remove them to actually get the stroller stored in the car. Given that, there really should have been a way to secure them to the stroller some other way instead of having them float around in the back of the car.
It also takes a lot of practice to get good at putting the car seat on and taking it off. Once you figure out the best way to do it, it's really not that hard, but until then it can be very difficult. The key I have found is to rock the car seat back and forth on the adapter - it has some play in it even when the car seat it latched in, so eventually you will find the exact angles at which it best latches and unlatches.

Works with a 2016 stroller model
I was hesitant to buy this product due to all the negative reviews saying one side does not click in to the stroller properly. I did my research, and made sure to purchase a City Mini Double Stroller that was made in 2016 or later. With a 2016 model, both sides work correctly and click in to place appropriately. The only issues I found is that it is challenging to line the car seat up. I’ve only tried a few times, and there was no way I could click the car seat in place with the baby in the car seat. Once the car seat clicks in place, it feels secure. There is plenty of room for our older child on the other side- the car seat is up high enough that it is not crowding the other passenger.
