Post subject: Jeep Infinity Travel System - Very unsafe
Our son has been hurt when clips have failed on this travel system. The car seat attachment does not stay securely fastened to the pram fram when moving. We have complained to Hauk but they were not bothered. Our son could have easily been killed. The car seat attachment rolled off the pram frame recently leaving it upside down on the pavement with Luke in it. He banged his head hard but if he had not been strapped in it could have been a lot worse. Trading standards are getting the travel system tested by Bureau Veritas in Manchester. The testing house have said that they are very concerned about several safety aspects.
Has any one else had problems with this product?
The manufacturers, Hauck, are completely aware that the clips that fasten the car seat attachment stretch and weaken over time but are not bothered because:
