Fort Mill, SC, December 09, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that all infants should ride rear-facing starting with their first ride home from the hospital. They should remain rear-facing until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by their car safety seat’s manufacturer. “We increased the weight recommendation so caregivers would be able to keep their children rear-facing longer. We also increased side impact protection with a newly contoured adjustable headrest,” said Ed Whitaker, director of operations at Combi USA. “These new safety improvements along with many others will provide parents with peace of mind and the level of quality expected of a Combi product.”
The SHUTTLE 33 offers the Tru-Safe® Anti-Rebound Bar—an important safety feature that improves the overall performance of the seat by minimizing its rotation against the vehicle seat back in a frontal crash. Also, Tru-Safe® Side Impact Protection—the deeply sculpted side wings and the engineered plastic called Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) laced throughout the seat—designed to provide the greatest level of overall protection, especially in the head area.
Convenience features include a one-pull harness adjustment and the EZ Harness™ Height Adjustment System—a turn of a knob changes the height adjustment of the shoulder straps. The breathable mesh fabric is removable and washable. And weighing just 9¼ pounds, without the base, makes the SHUTTLE 33 easy to carry. The seat base has an easy to read level indicator and wide belt paths for easier installation.
The SHUTTLE 33 will be available in Dec. 2009 in a variety of colors and will retail for $179.99. Additional bases for multi-vehicle installation retail for $69.99. Tru-Safe® and EZ Harness™ are trademarks of Combi USA, Inc.
