The affected car seats were sold nationwide from January 2013. They were manufactured in the USA between 15 January 2013 and 9 June 2015.

What to do

You can find the date and model number on a white label on the left side of your child restraint.

If your car seat is affected, contact Retro Vehicle Enhancement Ltd on 0800 738 764 or office@rve.co.nz for a free replacement retrofit strap. This will redistribute the load in a crash and prevent cracking.
