Re: Carseat covers, strap pads, and piddle pads - PUBLIC SAFETY ANNOUNCEMENT

This doesn't make sense to me Because they haven't tested it, it WILL KILL AND TERRIBLY MAIME your child?? Does anyone here drive above 30mph? Cause, you know, they don't test the carseats past that constraint, either. IMO current crash testing on "child restraint devices" is a joke.

Oh, and of course manufacturers aren't going to take the heat if you use an aftermarket product. They will find every possible way to get out of liability.

Heck, putting YOUR CHILD in a carseat is an "aftermarket product" Unless they did those crash tests with your exact child in the seat. Even then, its STILL not exactly right, since your kid has probably grown/gained/lost weight since last week.

Use you common sense, drive carefully, and try not to stress about all the fearmongering going on...just my
