Binoj Joseph Matthew MD on How to Spot a Counterfeit Car Seat

Posted by

Counterfeit car seats being sold online: a few steps you can take to ensure you are getting the real deal:

*Must have the National highway transportation and safety administration label (NHTSA) : stating “This child restraint system conforms to all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards” on the warning label with a yellow header. Also look for badly worded statements i.e., poor English.

*Do not purchase anything from third-party vendors and instead of taking the product from the manufacture itself. One of the ways to do this is to confirm the existence of major brands in actual stores and then buy those brands online if you’re getting a better deal.

*I am adding a article for your reference which goes through the steps. And important thing to do after purchase is to register with the actual serial number of the product on the product website. Counterfeiters fail this step because the only numbers that are used are those already in existence.
