Advisory details

On certain child car seats, the release button on the buckle guides the caregiver’s finger to the center of the button, rather than towards the top. Consumers relying on touch and pressing in the center of the button may have more difficulty in releasing the harness than they would by pressing the button in the more optimal location near the top edge. Additionally, the position of the buckle close to the child occupant’s thighs may cause manipulation of the buckle to be more difficult as the child occupant grows in size. As a result, users may experience difficulty unlatching or be unable to unlatch the buckle, which could increase the risk of injury in an emergency situation. Correction: Registered owners will receive a letter containing proper use instructions and information on how to obtain a replacement buckle. Non-registered owners of affected car seats, or owners who have moved should contact the Canadian distributor, Elfe Juvenile Products, at 1-800-667-8184 or service@graco.net to obtain a free repair kit or if they have any questions.
