My experiences of advising parents on child safety

Which seat isn’t safe?

on March 9, 2013





So, a little while back I posted a picture of 3 seats, asking which one isn’t safe.

I did this to try and help people see the danger in buying second hand seats and to show that you can never be 100% sure that an old or 2nd hand seat is safe.


The issue with this seat is that it is old.  It is certified R44.03, and judging by the seat itself is about 8 years old.

The polystyrene is very dry and flaky which may reduce side impact protection, but as you can clearly see – it’s snapped.  Which is what makes this seat unsafe!
