One of our most important goals here at NHTSA is to make sure motor vehicles and car seats meet all Federal Safety Standards. Sometimes a motor vehicle or piece of vehicle safety equipment, such as a car seat or booster seat, doesn’t comply with these required safety standards—or there’s a safety-related defect. When this happens, a recall may occur so the manufacturer can fix the problem.
We know you, as a parent or caregiver, want to do everything possible to make sure your child is safe in the car. Yet very few people ever register their car and booster seats so they can receive recall notices!
Registering your seat makes sense: It gives the manufacturer the ability to contact you about recalls and safety notices. It’s also easy: Just send in the card that came with your car seat or fill out a simple form on the manufacturer’s Web site. Your child’s safety could depend on it.

In addition to registering your car seat, sign up to receive e-mail alerts about car seat and booster seat recalls from NHTSA.
If you don’t have another car seat or booster seat to use, keep using the recalled seat while you wait for the repair kit—if the recall notice says you can. Using a recalled car seat or booster seat is almost always safer than letting a child ride in just a seat belt. Many problems are minor, but some are serious. All problems should be fixed as soon as possible.
