On March 3, 2014, Graco Children’s Products Inc., in conjunction with Transport Canada issued a voluntary Safety Advisory in Canada concerning certain Graco convertible child car seats. Learn more about the Graco buckle recall in the United States. F
urther information pertaining to the Advisory that is being issued in Canada can be found on Transport Canada’s website.
On certain convertible child car seats, the buckle may become contaminated with foreign material, such as food or dried liquids, and may over time become progressively more difficult to unlatch or become stuck in the latched position. If this occurs, users may experience difficulty unlatching or be unable to unlatch the buckle, which could increase the risk of injury in an emergency situation. The car seats affected by this advisory are:
Nautilus Model No.:
MyRide 65 Model No.:
Graco would like to stress this does not in any way affect the performance of the car seat or the effectiveness of the buckle to restrain the child.
These car seats were manufactured between January 2009 and July 2013. Seats manufactured after this date use a different harness buckle and are excluded from this action. The safety advisory does not affect Graco infant car seats and travel systems.
Graco offers a new and improved replacement harness buckle to affected consumers at no cost. Registered owners will be sent a letter containing proper care instructions and information on how to obtain a replacement buckle.
