Car Seat Safety

Check Your Car Seat Straps!
Christine was reinstalling the girls car seats and looked at the connection between the LATCH strap and the car seat and it was shredded and came off the car seat when she barely touched it.  Christine said "I don't think the seat had been moved more than 2 time since I bought it in the late summer of 2013 so there was no real wear and tear on it.  I always look at the harness straps but because the LATCH strap is covered by the seat I never thought to look.  I wanted to share this info with as many families as I can because the seat would have never held up in an accident!" Christine called Britax and they are sending a replacement part but she wanted to get the word out to check all straps, even the ones that are covered.
