4moms is issuing a recall on its self-installing carseat manufactured between July 1, 2016 and October 31, 2016. The recall affects about 2% of 1,622 carseats, or about 33 carseats, manufactured during this time. There have been no reported injuries at this time.
On some carriers, the coupling hooks that lock the carrier into the base have been improperly riveted, potentially causing them to stick and not attach to the base. The coupling hook failure has only been observed after extended use and testing. Again, there have been no reported injuries.
Fix: 4moms will send owners a new carrier starting January 13, 2017
What should you do: Visit the 4moms recall site to see if your carseat is affected. You can continue to use your affected carrier until you receive the new one.
- Check to make sure the carrier is locked into the base by pulling up on the handle after the carrier is placed into the base. If it isn’t locked into the base, then . . .
- Install the carrier without the base. The carrier can be installed “Euro style” as shown by Kecia in this video (demonstrating on a Nuna Pipa):
