Safeline Kids, Inc.
Models: Safeline Sit’N’Stroll Model 2003
Number Potentially Involved: 10,495
Dates of Manufacture: September 2002 – October 2003
Noncompliance: Certain rear-facing and forward-facing convertible child restraints fail to meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, "Child Restraint Systems." When the seat is secured in the vehicle using the lower forward-facing belt path or when the shoulder and buckle pads included with the restraint are used, forces during a crash could cause the child’s head to move forward further than allowed by the standard. The shoulder and buckle pads may interfere with the harness becoming properly snug. There is an increased risk of head injury to a child occupant in the event of a crash.
