Is it okay to buy a used child safety seat?

Always use caution when buying used child safety seats. Transport Canada recently issued a consumer information notice advising that all children’s car seats and booster seats sold in Canada have an expiry or useful life date on them. The reason for this is to inform current owners and prospective buyers of the potential risks of using car seats and booster seats that may be missing important parts, labels or instructions and/or may have an unknown history that could lead to a less than optimal safe performance when needed.

Make sure any child safety seat you buy has:

  • instructions
  • all necessary hardware, straps, buckles, harnesses and chest clip
  • not been in a collision
  • not been recalled (check with the manufacturer or Transport Canada - 1-800-333-0371)
  • not expired or beyond the seat’s useful life date. Transport Canada provides a list of manufacturers of car seats and booster seats sold in Canada which includes the expiry/life date of their products at www.tc.gc.ca/eng/roadsafety/safedrivers-childsafety-notices-2011c011-1168.htm [w2]
  • no discoloured (stress) marks or cracks and the harness is not worn or torn
