Model(s): Kangaroo Booster Seats
Production Dates: Booster seat built prior to January 31, 1997
Defect: This is not a safety recall in accordance with Federal Regulation Part 573. However, it is deemed a product improvement campaign by the agency. The shoulder belts may not be properly located when the child is placed in the restraint. The Velcro seat belt guide on these booster seats helps achieve seat belt placement in all cases.
Corrective Action: Downunder is providing revised instructions to all owners of the Kangaroo Booster child car seat to help clarify shoulder belt placement. For owners of the Kangaroo Booster Model #3 (models without the Velcro shoulder belt positioner), a Velcro shoulder belt positioner will be sent to upgrade these boosters.
