181 Car Seats Recycled
Safe Kids Larimer County and the Colorado Children’s Automobile Safety Foundation partnered together this Valentine’s Day to recycle 181 car seats that were unsafe for children to use. We saw car seats that were manufactured in 1998! Car seats have an expiration date determined by the car seat manufacturer. In general, infant and convertible car seats have a 6 year life span and must be replaced. Some car seats were broken and some were on the recall list.
If your car seat has been put through the rigors of childhood, is expired, has been recalled, or is broken, please take them to the Colorado State Patrol office located at 3832 S. I-25 and stack them neatly behind the building. Not sure if your car seat is good to use? Call one of our permanent inspection stations for an appointment.

Graco Children’s Products, Inc. (Graco) is recalling model year 2009 through 2013 toddler and booster child restraints, models Cozy Cline, Comfort Sport, Classic Ride 50, My Ride 65, My Ride with Safety Surround, My Ride 70, Size 4 Me 70, Smartseat, Nautilus, Nautilus Elite, and Argos 70. The alleged defect involves difficulty in unlatching the harness buckle. In some cases, the buckle becomes stuck in a latched condition so that it cannot be opened by depressing the buckle’s release button. It may be difficult to remove the child from the restraint, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a vehicle crash, fire, or other emergency, in which a prompt exit from the vehicle is required. The manufacturer has not yet provided the agency with a remedy or notification schedule. Owners may contact Graco at 1-800-345-4109 (toll-free) or 1-330-869-7225, or online at email@example.com.
