Harness Buckle Recall - 2014 Announcement
Toddler Car Seats

If your car seat is affected by the safety notice, or if you're experiencing difficulty with your current harness buckle, Graco offers a new and improved replacement harness buckle to consumers at no cost. We would like to stress that our car seats are safe and effective in restraining children. You can continue to use your car seat while waiting for your new buckle.

To reduce the chance of difficulty unlatching the buckle while you are waiting to receive your buckle repair kit, users should clean their buckles according to the instructions found here.

1. Check your car seat model number and date of manufacture:
Look under or behind your car seat, locate the white label and note the NAME and Date of Manufacture.
