(August 17, 2015) – The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department is bringing a child safety recall to the public’s attention.

Britax is recalling certain Advocate ClickTight child seats, Boulevard ClickTight child seats, and Marathon ClickTight child seats.

The affected child seats have a red harness adjuster button that may stick in the down (harness release) position allowing the shoulder harness to loosen.

If the harness loosens, the child may not be properly restrained, increasing their risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Britax will notify registered owners and send them a remedy kit that includes a lubricant to apply to the harness adjuster button, free of charge.

Owners may contact Britax customer service at 1-888-427-4829, option 3 or visit their website for model numbers.

According to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department, their car seat technicians see quite a few Britax car seats.
