RECALL: Britax car seat buttons could stick in 'release' position

Britax is recalling a number of its child safety seats because of an adjuster button that may stick in the release position, causing the shoulder harness to loosen. 

The recall affects certain Advocate ClickTight, Boulevard ClickTight, and Marathon ClickTight model convertible car seats manufactured between August 1, 2014 - July 29, 2015, the Britax website said. 

Britax said the button may stick in the down (harness release) position, which could allow the shoulder harness to loosen and fail to properly restrain the child in a car accident.

You can see the model numbers here or enter your model number to see if your car seat is affected.

Britax said it would notify registered owners and send them a free remedy kit that includes a lubricant to apply to the harness adjuster button. 

Owners can contact also Britax customer service: at 1-888-427-4829, option 3, or visit www.BritaxClickTightConvertibleRecall.com.
