|Topeak Babyseat II Bicycle Carrier Seats
|This recall involves Topeak Babyseat II bicycle carrier seats with model numbers TCS2100, TCS2101 and TCS2102. Model numbers are printed on the products packaging. The gray, plastic Babyseats were sold in three styles: Babyseat, Babyseat with disc brake compatible rack and Babyseat with non-disc brake compatible rack. The racks are used to mount the seat to the bicycle. Topeak is embossed on the back of the seat and is also printed on a black foam protector that covers the grab bar. A red locking lever on the side of the blue grab bar locks the bar into place.
|A child can place his or her fingers in the opening at the grab bars hinge mechanism. When the consumer lifts the grab bar to remove the child from the seat, the childs fingertips can be caught in the hinge mechanism, posing a laceration and fingertip amputation hazard to the child.
|J&B Imports, REI, Action and Hawley, independent bicycle dealers, distributors and other retail stores nationwide and online at REI.com for between $140 and $180.
