Graco Children’s Products, Inc. (Graco) is recalling certain Graco My Ride 65 convertible child restraints, models 1871689, 1908152, 1813074, 1872691, 1853478, 1877535, 1813015, and 1794334. In the event of a crash, the child seat webbing may not adequately restrain the child. As such, these car seats fail to conform to Federal Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 213, “Chidl Restraint Systems.”
In accordance with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) evaluates the restraint system compliance including the individual components of the car seat and the complete car seat in a dynamic crash simulation. During a test of the individual harness restraint component, the webbing on certain My Ride 65 convertible car seats did not meet federal requirements for breaking strength.
Graco is notifying consumers who may be impacted and is providing, free of charge, replacement kits with new harness restraints and installation instructions. While waiting for a replacement kit, consumers may continue to use the My Ride 65 convertible car seats.
