Carseat company Britax has recalled 37 models of carseat because of potential safety defect that could prevent harnesses from locking.
According to NBC News:
The company said Thursday that seat models Advocate ClickTight, Boulevard ClickTight, and Marathon ClickTight manufactured between Aug. 1, 2014, and July 29, 2015, may have a defective harness adjuster button that stays in the “release” position when the harness is tightened, rendering the seat useless. So far, no one has reported an injury from the defect, it said.
A Consumer Reports safety notice was the first to point this out back in March.
Britax’s announcement said it had “confirmed the performance” of ClickTight seats with NHTSA and had contacted all registered seat owners warning them of the potential risks.
