ALL OWNERS OF CENTURY 2000 STE CAR SEATS, MODELS 4253, 4261, 4263, 4265, 4266

 MACEDONIA, Ohio, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Century Products Company has determined from the crash testing of the Century 2000 STE Child Car Seats that seats manufactured between December, 1991, and April, 1992, have failed to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, Child Restraint Systems. It has been observed during several routine tests that the red release button on the car seat can rotate upward, making it possible for the buckle to release.
 In cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Century is providing a free repair kit so owners can easily replace the red release button. This notice only concerns Century 2000 STE car seats (Models 4253, 4261, 4263, 4265 and 4266) stamped with Lot Numbers 9112 through 9204. The Lot Number is the last four or five digits of the model number located on a label on the side of the car seat. Car seats with any other model number or lot number, or with a yellow or purple circular label stating "IMPROVED RELEASE BUTTON" are not affected by this notice.
 If you own a Century 2000 STE series car seat within the above lot numbers, call 800-255-2220 to obtain your free "Retrofit Kit."
 In the event you feel Century Products Company has not promptly responded to your request for a retrofit kit, you may submit a complaint to the Administrator, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 400 Seventh Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20590 or call the toll-free Auto Safety Hot Line at 800-424-9393. Washington-area residents may call 202-366-0123.
