Britax Child Safety and Transport Canada wish to inform the public of a safety defect with the harness adjuster button on certain Advocate ClickTight, Boulevard ClickTight, and Marathon ClickTight model convertible car seats. ONLY THE SEATS WITH THE CLICKTIGHT DIAL ARE INCLUDED IN THE RECALL. If your Britax product has a different model number than the model numbers listed below, it is NOT included in this recall.

Models Affected:

  • Advocate ClickTight: E9LV55N (Tahoe), E9LV55Q (Circa), E9LV55Z (Limelight)
  • Boulevard ClickTight: E9LV45Q (Circa), E9LV45S (Splash), E9LV46A (Kaleidoscope), E9LV46H (Metro)
  • Marathon ClickTight: E9LV31Q (Cowmooflauge), E9LV35R (Verve), E9LV36B (Twilight), E9LV36L (Vibe), E9LV36N (Rio)

The ClickTight model convertible car seats identified in the table above have harness adjuster buttons (red) which may remain down in the “release” position after the harness is tightened. This will enable the shoulder harnesses to loosen from a child's movements while secured in the seat. A loose harness may not adequately protect a child in the event of a motor vehicle crash.

There have not been any reports of injury as a result of this defect.

To remedy this condition, Britax is providing all registered users a kit that includes a non-toxic food-grade lubricant to apply directly to the harness adjuster button (red). Follow the easy-to-read instructions included in the kit and use the ClickTight dial to open the seat, remove the harness adjuster button (red) from the finger guide, apply a small amount of the lubricant to the release button and reinstall it. After this one-time application, the adjuster button will function normally, move freely inside the finger guide and will not remain down in the “release” position after the harness is tightened.

All registered owners of the recalled ClickTight convertibles are automatically being sent a free remedy kit that includes a non-toxic, food-grade, lubricant, and an instruction sheet for applying the lubricant to the harness adjuster button (red). Consumers should confirm that their product is included by visiting www.BritaxClickTightConvertibleRecall.com or verifying the model number and date of manufacture (DOM). If you have not registered your seat please visit this website or contact Britax customer service at 1-8888-427-4829 (ext. 3)

Consumers can continue to safely use their ClickTight convertible car seat as long as the shoulder harness straps remain tensioned.

This safety advisory from Uppababy is specific to the Bumper Bar on the 2015 products. UPPAbaby's top priority is the safety of children. They conduct extensive testing to ensure UPPAbaby products meet all global industry and regulatory standards.

Despite extensive testing and passing of all global industry and regulatory testing, UPPAbaby received reports of children biting down and tearing off a piece of the new 2015 stroller bumper bar. There have been no injuries reported.

However, since UPPAbaby considers this to be a safety hazard, the company is issuing a Safety Advisory on the bumper bar on the 2015 VISTA stroller, 2015 CRUZ stroller, and 2015 RumbleSeat.

We are addressing this issue by reintroducing a bumper bar cover, which zips over the bumper bar.

Orbit Baby, Inc. has determined that a manufacturing defect which does not allow proper installation of some bases in accordance with the installation instructions exists in specific ORBIT BABY Car Seat Base G2 (Model No. ORB822000) units manufactured between March 20, 2013 and July 20, 2013 with one of the following Batch Numbers: A0840, A0860 and A0880.

Some StrongArm Knobs on the affected Car Seat Base G2 units may detach or just spin without tightening the base when a spring pin that connects the StrongArm Knob falls out.
