BRITAX Announces Safety Recall of the CHAPERONE Infant Car Seat
by Britax on Friday, January 27, 2012 at 3:59pm

Because we’re committed to creating the safest products for children, BRITAX is conducting a voluntary safety recall of the CHAPERONE Infant Car Seat in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Transport Canada. No injuries have been reported, however BRITAX has determined that the rivet used to attach the harness adjuster to the shell may have been improperly installed. On the BRITAX CHAPERONE Infant Car Seat, the harness adjuster ensures that the harness straps can be properly tightened and secured over the infant’s shoulders and is attached to the infant car seat shell. As a result, the harness adjuster may detach from the shell. Should the harness adjuster detach from the infant car seat shell, the harness straps will not properly secure the child, resulting in increased risk of injury in a vehicle crash.

Affected models were manufactured between September 1, 2010 and April 30, 2011, and include the following model numbers: E9L692J, E9L692K, E9L692L, E9L692M, E9L952J, E9L952K, and E9L952L.

To address this issue, BRITAX is providing a remedy kit including a harness adjuster kit and instructions for properly installing it. All CHAPERONE Infant Car Seat owners should confirm whether their child restraint is affected by verifying the date of manufacture and model number. No later than February 6, 2012, remedy kits and instructions for using them will begin shipping to all registered CHAPERONE Infant Car Seat owners with affected seats.

To register your product or to verify your existing registration information, please contact the BRITAX information line, toll free at 888-427-4829 between 8:30 am - 4:45 pm (EST) Monday – Thursday, and between 8:30 am - 3:45 pm (EST) on Friday or visit Product Registration - Britax USA (USA) or Registration - Britax CA (Canada).

If the harness adjuster on your CHAPERONE Infant Car Seat detaches, you should immediately discontinue use of the product until your remedy kit arrives and the harness adjuster is replaced. If the harness adjuster on your seat is securely attached to the seat shell, it is safe to continue using the seat until your remedy kit arrives.
