Product recall: Halfords i-Size Revolve car seat

Halfords is asking people to stop using their i-Size Revolve car seat immediately and return it to store

Halfords has issued a recall of their i-Size Revolve car seat due to a safety concern that has been found with the rotating locking mechanism.

It has identified that the locking mechanism for the rotation system on the seat can potentially be pushed open when in the locked position.

This could lead to the seat rotating while in the locked position, which could be dangerous in the event of a car crash.

Due to the danger this could pose, Halfords is recalling all i-Size Revolve child seats.

Read on to find out how you can return your seat if you have one.

First of all, you should stop using the seat immediately.

Halfords has requested that you take your i-Size Revolve seat to your local store (visit Halfords.com to find your nearest), where the retailer will give you a full refund and offer a 15% discount on the purchase of a replacement seat.

If you have any difficulties getting to your local store, you can call their support team on 03301 359779 or email them here: customer.services@halfords.co.uk.

'If you know someone else who has purchased one of these products, or you have purchased one for someone else please ask them to follow the actions advised above.

'We apologise for any inconvenience caused.'

Pick a Which? Best Buy car seat

We haven't tested the Halfords i-Size Revolve car seat, but we have tested models for a range of ages that enable you to swivel the car seat in either a 180 or 360 degree circle. You can find these reviews by using the 'Swivel seat' filter or by clicking the link to read ourswivel car seat reviews.

Unlike some other websites that publish reviews, we crash-test each child car seat we test and carry out fitting checks so we can tell you which give the best protection and which you should avoid.

Our crash tests are derived from Euro NCAP safety tests and are more demanding than the legal minimum regulations.

We also check how easy the car seat is to install using real parents and their children, and get experts to see if the car seat is comfortable for your baby or child.
