Am Safe Seat Belt Connectors Recalled

Models: Am Safe Seat Belt Connectors

Number Involved: 31,651

Dates of Manufacture: September 1999

Defect: Center push button seat belt buckle connectors (tongues) were sent through a secondary process after stamping. The secondary process formed a chamfer in the contact surface of some of the connectors. A chamfer in the surface will allow the connector to disengage from the buckle during a vehicle crash, leaving the occupant unrestrained. Serious injury or death could occur if the vehicle occupant is not properly restrained.

Remedy: Am-Safe is notifying customers that they will inspect and replace the defective buckle assemblies free of charge. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during March 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Am-Safe at 1-219-266-8330.
