Labels, Instructions, and Features of Convertible Child Restraints

Labels, Instructions, and Features of Convertible Child Restraints


Product ID: 811 627

This report documents a study of how CRS features, labels, and instructions contribute to CRS installation errors. Task 1A focused on assessing different physical features of 16 convertible CRS, while Task 1B evaluated baseline and modified versions of labels and instructions for two CRS models. For each phase of testing, 32 subjects were recruited based on their education level (high or low) and experience with installing CRS (none or experienced). Each subject was asked to perform four child restraint installations in a 2006 Pontiac G6 sedan. An 18-month-old CRABI anthropometric test device (ATD) weighing 25 lb was used for all installations. Each subject installed two CRS forward-facing (FF), one with LATCH and one with seatbelt, and two CRS rear-facing (RF), one with LATCH and one with the seatbelt. For Task 1A, each subject installed four of the sixteen convertible CRS. For Task 1B, each subject installed a Graco ComfortSport and Evenflo Titan twice, where each CRS had one of eight alternate instruction manuals and one of eight alternate label conditions. After each installation, the experimenter evaluated 42 factors for each installation, such as choice of belt routing path, tightness of installation, and harness snugness.

The 2011 National Survey of the Use of Booster Seats

The 2011 National Survey of the Use of Booster Seats


Product ID: 811 718

This technical report presents results from the 2011 National Survey of the Use of Booster Seats (NSUBS). NSUBS is the only probability-based nationwide child restraint use survey in the United States that observes restraint use and interviews adult occupants to collect race, ethnicity and other data. NHTSA’s National Center for Statistics and Analysis conducts the NSUBS. The 2011 NSUBS found that 47 percent of 4- to 7-year-old children were restrained in booster seats in 2011 as compared to 41 percent in 2009. Restraint use for all children under 13 increased to 91 percent in 2011. Although there were some indications of premature graduation to restraint types that are not appropriate for children’s age, height, and weight, we see significant improvements in use of appropriate restraint types among children of various categories in 2011 as compared to 2009.
