CHILD SEAT: HARNESS

2/20/2010 - EAST SANDWICH, MA
AFTER WATCHING A VIDEO OF ANOTHER SAFETY 1ST VANTAGE CARSEAT WITH HARNESS FAILURE, I DECIDED TO CHECK THE SEAT AT MY IN-LAWS HOUSE THAT IS LUCKILY NOT USED VERY OFTEN. LOW AND BEHOLD, WITH A SMALL AMOUNT OF FORCE, YOU CAN COMPLETELY PULL THE HARNESS LOOSE WITHOUT PRESSING THE BUTTON TO LOOSEN IT. I AM A CAR SEAT TECHNICIAN AND DEAL WITH MANY SEATS EVERY DAY. I AM SHOCKED (AND A BIT EMBARRASSED) THAT MY CHILD HAS BEEN IN THIS SEAT. CLEARLY, A 35LB CHILD IN A 20MPH ACCIDENT WOULD HAVE MUCH GREATER FORCE THEN ME YANKING ON THE HARNESS... THIS SEAT IS A REAL DANGER TO ANY CHILD RIDING IN IT. I WILL DISCONTINUE TO USE THIS SEAT AND HOPEFULLY SEND IT BACK TO SAFETY 1ST FOR THEIR OWN TESTING. CLEARLY THE FAILURE IS IN THE MECHANISM THAT LOOSENS AND KEEPS THE HARNESS TIGHT. MY SEAT WAS MADE IN 03/28/2004 AND IS MODEL NUMBER 22-561-WAL.

CHILD SEAT: HARNESS BUCKLE

2/9/2009 - DEL RAY BEACH, FL
TL CONTACT OWNS A SAFETY 1ST CHILD SEAT, MODEL 22-561 WAL. THE SEAT WAS MANUFACTURED ON APRIL 17, 2006. WHILE DRIVING ON A 3-4 HOUR TRIP, THE CONTACT NOTICED THAT THE HARNESS BUCKLE WAS NOT FASTENED. ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS, THE BUCKLE WOULD NOT REMAIN FASTENED. SHE KEPT PUSHING THE HARNESS INTO THE BUCKLE, BUT IT WOULD NOT REMAIN SECURE. SHE STATED THAT THERE WAS NO WAY HER CHILD COULD HAVE UNFASTENED IT BECAUSE THE PIECES WERE STILL CLOSE TOGETHER; HOWEVER, THEY WERE NOT FASTENED TOGETHER. THE MANUFACTURER OFFERED TO ORDER A NEW PART, BUT REFUSED TO TAKE THE CONTACT'S COMPLAINT. THE PURCHASE DATE WAS UNKNOWN.
