ONLY AmSafe and AmSafe Approved Repair Stations ARE AUTHORIZED TO REPAIR OR REFURBISH AmSafe restraints.
AmSafe restraints are highly engineered and dynamically tested to very specific performance and regulatory requirements. An AmSafe repair or refurbishment replaces the webbing and ALL hardware components prone to wear with the exact same part meeting OEM specifications and drawings. Unauthorized repair stations are unable to have the latest approved technical data and approved replacement articles. ONLY AmSafe and AmSafe Approved Repair Stations have access to AmSafe proprietary webbing and hardware. Only AmSafe and Authorized Repair Stations have the required machines and test equipment to properly repair and certify the restraints. The refurbished restraint has the same warranty as a new restraint, and AmSafe commitment to quality and safety.
UNAUTHORIZED REPAIR OR REFURBISHMENT OF AMSAFE RESTRAINTS HAS SIGNIFICANT SAFETY AND LIABILITY CONCERNS.
