Why do child safety seats have an expiration date

The child safety seats we have seen all look very strong, most of them are expensive, and they are full of materials and exquisite workmanship. This is extremely deceptive, since the use of plastic materials is unavoidable in current child safety seats.
This means that, over time, child safety seats, which are usually placed in passenger compartments year-round, are exposed to extreme temperatures for extended periods of time. Usually the outdoor temperature is 30 degrees, and the maximum temperature can reach 70 degrees after exposure in the car! Long-term high temperature will affect the mechanical properties of plastics.
The safety technician said she has helped install more than 400 child safety seats in the past two years. More than 30 to 40 percent of households have just bought a car seat that has been on the shelf for more than a year. The parents were also surprised that the car seats they bought were made in 2017, or even in 2016. This means that the newly purchased child safety seat can only be used for less than 4 years. Of course, the actual situation still needs to be distinguished by manufacturer and product. For details, please refer to the information of each product. This information is of particular concern to families with many children, especially those who want the car seat to be used by the next child.
