A missing installation label may result in an improperly installed booster seat, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213 requires an installation diagram showing the booster seat installed in a seating position with a continuous loop lap and shoulder belt. The label was inadvertently removed from the side of the booster seat. The affected booster seats are missing the installation diagram displaying the proper way to install the booster seat with a continuous loop lap and shoulder belt. As a result, the booster seats do not conform to the requirement.
The safety risk is low as all other labels are present. The label showing that the booster seat cannot be installed with a lap-only belt is present. The phrase “belt here” is molded into the seat to show the correct routing of the seat belt. The instruction manual does include correct installation information and illustrates the lap and shoulder belt routing over the occupant. However, if the booster seat is not properly installed with the lap and shoulder belt, the child may not be properly secured by the vehicle seat belt, increasing the risk of injury.
This issue does not affect the ability of the booster seat to protect the occupant in the event of a motor vehicle crash.
Clek will mail owners a new label, free of charge. Owners may contact Clek’s customer service at 1-866-656-2462
Clek will send a notification to all registered owners informing them about the issue. The letter will include a label with the missing diagram and instructions on how to apply it to the booster seat.
Clek will also make a press release on their website with information on the non-compliance.
The remedy component is a new label that includes the missing illustration diagram and a letter requesting the owner to place the label onto the booster seat. The new label with the illustration added to the booster seat will bring the seat into compliance.
Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153) or go to www.safercar.gov.
