Feds Investigate Graco Car Seats

Federal safety regulators are investigating complaints that children have been trapped in Graco car seats because the buckles won't unlatch.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the probe covers My Ride and Nautilus seats from 2009 through 2011.
The agency says it has 25 reports of problems from consumers. Some had to force the buckle open. Three told the agency they had to cut the harness to free their child. Six more say they had to pull the child through the harness.
No injuries have been reported.
The agency did not say how many car seats were affected. Investigators will decide if the seats should be recalled. They have asked Graco for information about other seats with the same parts.
A message was left for a Graco spokeswoman.

    We have a patented solution for this issue. Major manufacturers of carseats have not been receptive to "Unsolicited Ideas" as they describe. We have created an Emergency Harness Release System along with the University of AL that needs to be implemented. Go to http://c-marc.com/Child%20Saf​ety/child%20safety.wmv or http://m.youtube.com/?piggyba​ck=2#/watch?v=gm_NMllqq7g&gl=US to view the solution to this problem. Any and all help to get this patented idea implemented to save childrens lives would be welcomed.
