The harness adjuster can pop out of position, making it difficult to adjust the harness to fit your child properly. In the event of a crash, a loose harness could increase the risk of injury.
The recall includes car seats with the model number E9L47, manufactured from February 12, 2005, through July 31, 2007. The date of manufacturer and model number may be found on the white label located near the top of the car seat on the child's left side under the cover.
Mass merchandisers and independent juvenile retailers for $285.
What To Do:
Britax will send all owners two push rivet fasteners to secure the adjuster to the car seat. Registered owners of the Decathlon car seat will automatically be notified and sent complete instructions and push rivet fasteners by mail beginning August 17, 2007. To assist in this process, video instructions are available on the Britax Web site at www.BritaxUSA.com. The fix will take less than five minutes to complete.
