Britax is recalling 213,000 child seats over an issue with the should harness.
The problem, which affects some Boulevard ClickTight, Advocate ClickTight and Marathon ClickTight child seats, is a red harness adjuster button that may stick in the released position, allowing the shoulder harness to loosen.
Britax plans to notify registered owners and send them a remedy kit which includes a lubricant that is supposed to be applied to the harness adjuster button. Britax says the recall will begin on August 17, 2015.
