There has been difficulty in unlatching the harness buckle. In some cases, the buckle becomes stuck in a latched condition so that it cannot be opened by depressing the buckle’s release button. It may be difficult to remove the child from the restraint, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a vehicle crash, fire, or other emergency, in which a prompt exit from the vehicle is required. There have been no injuries reported.
The recall includes 3.7 million model year 2009 through 2013 toddler and booster child restraints. The models include Cozy Cline, Comfort Sport, Classic Ride 50, My Ride 65, My Ride with Safety Surround, My Ride 70, Size 4 Me 70, Smartseat, Nautilus, Nautilus Elite, and Argos 70.
Graco will provide a new and improbed replacement harness buckle to affected customers. For more information, contact the company by phone at (800) 345-4109 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
