Convertible Car Seat StatementBRITAX has received reports from consumers 
concerning missing screw(s)/nut(s) at the base joint connector(s) of their 
convertible car seat. BRITAX has determined that a limited number of 
convertible car seats were manufactured with screws/nuts that were improperly 
inserted. As a result one or both of these screws/nuts may be detached from the 
base joint connector. The potentially affected convertible car seats (see list 
below) were manufactured from the start of production in early July 2010 
through August 2011.BRITAX assures you that if your convertible car seat is 
missing a screw/nut in the base joint connector, you can continue to safely use 
your BRITAX convertible car seat until the screw/nut is replaced. The missing 
screw(s)/nut(s) does not affect the safety performance of the convertible car 
seat because the convertible car seat is attached to the vehicle via the 
reinforced steel bars on the seat shell and not the convertible car seat base. 
However BRITAX highly recommends that you replace any missing screws/nuts in 
order to ensure that your convertible car seat fully functions as originally 
designed. Until you receive replacement screws/nuts, BRITAX recommends that you 
ensure that your convertible car seat is properly installed using the vehicle 
seat belt or LATCH connectors as outlined in the user guide.This photo 
demonstrates the location of the potentially missing screw(s)/nut(s) which are 
inserted into 
both sides of the convertible car seat base joint connectors.Inspect and 
confirm that both screws/nuts are present before un-installing the seat to 
replace any 
missing screw(s)/nut(s).If you experience a missing screw(s)/nut(s) in the 
BRITAX convertible car seats identified below, please contact the BRITAX 
Consumer Services Department at 888-427-4829. BRITAX will provide a kit which 
contains replacement screws/nuts and simple tools to install the missing 
screw(s)/nut(s). U.S. PRODUCTS: ROUNDABOUT 55MARATHON 70BOULEVARD 70BOULEVARD
