"Touriva Convertible Safe-T- Shield" Child Restraints Recalled by  Cosco

Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has published the recall of certain Touriva Convertible Safe-T- Shield restraints, manufactured between May 1, 1996 through November 26, 1997, because the buckle release force exceeds the regulation.

These seats fail to fully comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, "Child Restraint Systems." This campaign is the result of a denial of a petition for inconsequentiality.

The recalled models are:

Touriva Convertible Safe-T- Shield (full wrap fabric cover) Model 02-084.

Touriva Convertible Safe-T-Shield (partial wrap fabric cover) Model 02-094.

Touriva Convertible Safe-T- Shield (full wrap fabric cover with pillow) Model 02-096.

Touriva Convertible Safe-T-Shield (partial wrap vinyl cover) Model 02404.

Touriva Convertible Safe-T-Shield (partial wrap fabric cover) Model 02-821.

Cosco will send a remedy kit consisting of a new buckle assembly, the screws required, and detailed installation instructions.  Owners who do not receive the free kit should contact Cosco at 1-800-221-6736.

[NHTSA Recall No. 00E-007]
