More Tips by Safety Belt Safe U.S.A.:

How can you tell if your safety seat is safe?

  • Check the expiration date stamped on the plastic and make sure the date has not passed and that it has never been used in a crash.
  • You may not have received the most accurate information on a used car seat unless it has come from a trusted friend or relative.
  • The seat’s instruction booklet will let you know if you have all of the required seat parts.
  • Check for possible damage – cracks in the plastic, frayed straps, stiff buckles or harness adjusters.
  • Check for any recalls on the seat.

 

What is a safety recall?

  • Due to defects that could injure a child, a seat may be recalled by a manufacturer who is required to fix the problem free of charge.

 

Does the safety seat have to be sent back?

  • Not usually. Problems with recalled seats may be fixed by replacing a part that the manufacturer sends you for free.
