Manufacturer: DOREL JUVENILE GROUP Mfr's Report Date: APR 10, 2002
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 02C026000 NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: CHILD SEAT
Potential Number of Units Affected: 3957826
Summary:
 ON CERTAIN DOREL JUVENILE GROUP (DJG) CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEMS, MANUFACTURED FROM JANUARY 1, 2000, THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30, 2001, THE TETHER WEBBING FAILS TO CONFORM TO THE ABRASION REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 213, "CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEMS."
Consequence:
 IF THE WEBBING IS EXPOSED TO A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF ABRASION, IT COULD DEGRADE. IF THE WEBBING DEGRADES MORE THAN PERMITTED BY THE STANDARD, IT MAY NOT PROVIDE SUFFICIENT PROTECTION TO A CHILD IN A CRASH, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY TO THE CHILD.
Remedy:
 DJG'S PETITION FOR RELIEF FROM REMEDY BASED ON ITS BELIEF THAT THE NONCOMPLIANCE WAS INCONSEQUENTIAL TO MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY WAS DENIED BY NHTSA ON JANUARY 5, 2010. ACCORDINGLY, DJG WILL CONDUCT A SAFETY RECALL CAMPAIGN. IT WILL NOTIFY REGISTERED OWNERS AND PROVIDE FREE REPLACEMENT KITS FOR THE TETHER ALONG WITH REPAIR INSTRUCTIONS. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN ON FEBRUARY 16, 2010. OWNERS MAY CALL DJG TOLL-FREE AT 1-866-690-2539.
Notes:
 OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .
