Did you know that September is Child Passenger Safety Month in the U.S.? Every year, car seat safety advocates raise awareness and offer education to keep kids safe.
For over 65 years, safety has been Graco’s top priority, and we are committed to ensuring our littlest passengers are protected during every ride. At Newell Brands, many of our own children, grandchildren and family members ride in Graco car seats because we know firsthand the importance we place on safety.
All Graco car seats undergo safety testing that meets or exceeds the U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213 in three areas: catastrophic crashes that apply approximately twice the impact force required by federal standards, extreme environments including hot and cold temperatures and side-impact crashes. Additionally, in 2019, Graco launched Graco’s ProtectPlus Engineering™, which includes rear and rollover crash testing.
We also operate a Graco crash test facility at our Atlanta, GA, headquarters and have over 90 employees certified as passenger safety technicians (CPSTs). CPSTs must complete rigorous training and certification courses and are dedicated to educating communities on the correct selection, installation and use.
In addition to being trusted by families around the world, Graco’s products are recognized by the child safety industry. The Turn2Me™ 3-in-1 Rotating Car Seat was included in the most recent Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association Innovation Awards in the category of child restraint systems. The seat rotates from rear-facing to a face-to-face connection for the parent or caregiver with the baby for easy transfer from the car and is Graco® ProtectPlus Engineered™ for superior crash protection.
