RISKY RE­STRAINTS

Herald Sun - Motoring - - COVER STORY -

BE­WARE sec­ond-hand child re­straints. They may be tempt­ing fi­nan­cially but older car seats present sev­eral safety risks. Ex­perts rec­om­mend against us­ing a car seat that is more than 10 years old.

Also look for cracks, splits and frayed straps and ask about the his­tory of the seat. The seat should have a tag or sticker say­ing it meets AS/NZS 1754 (ver­sion 2000, 2004, 2010 and 2013). Ask for the in­struc­tion book­let.
