Evenflo Company is recalling 1,368,649 convertible and harnessed child restraints, models Momentum 65 (including LX and DLX), Chase (including LX, DLX, and Select), Maestro (including Performance), Symphony (including 65, LX, 65 E3, and DLX), Snugli All-In-One, Snugli Booster, Titan 65, SureRide DLX, and Secure Kid (including LX, DLX, 100, 300, and 400).
The affected seats have model number prefixes of 306, 308, 310, 329, 345, 346, 371 or 385.
The defect involves difficulty in unlatching the harness buckle. In the convertible car seats and harnessed booster seats, the buckle may become stuck in a latched condition so that it cannot be opened by depressing the buckle's release button.
That could make it hard to remove the child from the restraint, increasing the risk of injury in the event of an emergency in which a prompt exit from the vehicle is required.
Evenflo will notify registered owners in April 2014, and start providing replacement buckles along with installation instructions.
Owners may contact Evenflo at 1-800-490-7591 or online at www.buckle.evenflo.com .
A complete list of the production dates of the affected seats is available at http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/acms/cs/jaxrs/download/doc/UCM453080/RCDNN-14C003-7777.pdf
Not all seats within the date ranges listed are included, so consumers should contact Evenflo at the above number or website with the seat's model and date of manufacture to confirm that their seat is included.
