Register Your Child Restraint
Did you know that research by organizations like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) confirms that most child restraint systems/child passenger safety seat (“child restraint”) are installed incorrectly?!
Although child restraints undergo thorough testing and evaluation, it is possible that a child restraint could be recalled. In the event of a safety recall all manufacturers are required to notify all registered owners by first class mail that their child restraint is included in the recall. It is, therefore, very important that the manufacturer of your child restraint has your current mailing address, and all of the information necessary to identify your child restraint. To register your child restraint you will need to provide the following information:
• Your Name
• Your current mailing address
• Manufacturer's Name (Example: Graco, Britax, Evenflo, Combi, etc.)
• Date of Manufacture (Example: Label says "Manufactured in" )
• Model Number (Example: 8643CDR2, 808688, 317147P1, etc.)
• Model Name (if known) (Example: Snugride, Centre EX, Embrace, etc.)
It is required that all manufacturers include the model number and date of manufacture on each restraint they produce. It can be found on a label attached to the restraint (look on the rear, the bottom, or the side of the restraint). The image below is a sample of what a label may look like. Please note that the label on your child restraint may look different from this sample label.
