Kolcraft Car Seat Repair Program

WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Kolcraft Enterprises Inc. of Chicago, IL, is voluntarily undertaking a program to correct a safety related defect involving potentially defective plastic clips used in children's and infant car seats it manufactures. The clips attaching the padding on the car seats may break or be pulled off which could present a small parts choking hazard to young children.

The seats involved are Dial-A-Fit, Perfect Fit, and Rock 'n' Ride. Approximately 1.5 million car seats were sold nationwide for $45.00 to $75.00 each.

Consumers having Dial-A-Fit or Perfect Fit seats should call Kolcraft to obtain new clips and instructions for proper replacement for the side upholstery assembly. Consumers may call Kolcraft at 1-800-453-7673 or write to Kolcraft Enterprises, Inc. at 3455 West 31st Place, Chicago, Illinois 60623. Consumers having Rock 'n' Ride seats should immediately inspect their car seats to see if the clips are loose, brittle, broken, or missing. Consumers should call Kolcraft at 1-800-453-7673 to receive a set of new clips and instructions for proper replacement of the clips.

CPSC learned of this problem from a consumer complaint involving broken clips on the Rock 'n' Ride car seat. Neither CPSC or Kolcraft Enterprises, Inc. is aware of any injuries associated with these car seats.

NOTE: To report a defect in a motor vehicle or items of motor vehicle equipment, including child safety seats, consumers may call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration toll free Auto Safety Hotline at 1-800-424-9393.
