2017 Car Seat Check Events
*dates do not fall on the last Saturday of the month due to Holiday weekend conflict.
Self-installing infant Seat
On some seats the hooks locking the carrier into base have been improperly riveted, causing them to stick and fail to attach to the car seat base. No injuries have been reported. Affected customers will receive a replacement carrier at no charge.
To determine if carrier is affected, customers must have 9-digit serial number (see label located on base of carrier underneath the bar code). Consumers can enter this on the 4moms website or have it when calling customer service.
While waiting for replacement customers should double-check that the seat is properly locked into the base by pulling up on the carrier handle to ensure it's secure. If able to lift the carrier out of it's base without first manually disengaging the coupling hook, they can either manually intall the seat via a carrier-only installation, or discontinue using the car seat until their replacement arrives.
Hybrid LX 3-in-1
In a crash, center adjusters may detach in harnessed mode with a child weighing more than 40 pounds. There have been no reports of injuries to children.
This recall is very specific and covers only seats purchased at Walmart and at Military Exchange. To be included, the specific model number and serial number must match. Affected seats will be replaced free of charge.
