WASHINGTON, Feb. 24 (UPI) — Snug Seat Inc. of Stallings, N.C., is recalling 1,146 tether kits used to anchor two models of child safety seats, a government auto safety agency said.

The company will mail free metal ring kits for repairs to owners of Gorilla model 200-10000, and Spelcast model 600-1000 child safety seats made between July 26 and Jan. 15.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which announced the recall, said the tether anchor kit included with the child seats — number FW-50250-12-ZY — failed to comply with federal salt spray requirements.

The new metal ring kits will allow a motorist to mount a tether anchor in a vehicle not so equipped.

The recall affects 1,146 child safety seats sold through Durable Medical Equipment Dealers for use by children with special needs.

NHTSA said consumers can continue to use the seats and can contact Snug Seat at 800 336-7684 or write to Snug Seat, Inc., 12801 East Independence Boulevard, Stallings, N.C. 28105 to request a replacement repair kit at no cost.

The nation observed Child Passenger Safety Week Feb. 9-15.
