The SafeGuard SuperSTAR is the only restraint engineered with the added safety of car-seat technology while providing you with more versatility. The SuperSTAR’s central adjust allows for one-pull tightening of the restraint system. Not only is the central adjuster faster, it also helps you insure you are properly restraining the children in your care.
- Q: Does the STAR require the use of lap belts or lap-shoulder belts?
The system was designed for use with school bus seats that are belted or unbelted.
- Q: What federal and state safety requirements do the STAR products meet?
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration sets Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) for school buses and child restraints. The STAR meets and exceeds FMVSS 213 requirements for safety restraints on school buses. The STAR also meets requirements for Title 45, Part 1310 for Head Start Transportation.
- Q: Does the STAR meet Head Start requirements?
The STAR meets all applicable requirements of Title 45, Part 1310, sections 1310.10 and 1310.15.
- Q: Can the STAR products be used in regular vehicles?
STAR products are designed only for use in school buses, daycare buses, or MFSABs.
- Q: In what type of school bus seat can the STAR products fit?
STAR restraints fit all regular school bus seat manufacturers’ 24-inch low back and 28-inch high back seats. Lap belt ready (FMVSS 210) seats are not required to use with the STAR restraints (except in Indiana).
- Q: What is the expiration date on the STAR?
The STAR restraint system is considered to have a finite life and must be frequently inspected and replaced as needed. The service life of a STAR restraint is 6 years from the date of manufacture in accordance with JPMA standards. Discontinue use of the STAR after that date. The date of manufacture can be found on the back of the lower portion of the cam wrap strap where it connects to the seat base.
- Q: Do I need the chest strap?
The chest strap is optional and is designed for use with special needs children who need additional upper body support to sit in the seat.
- Q: How do I clean the STAR?
Clean the webbing, gray padding and flexible seat base with a damp cloth using a mild soap solution and lukewarm water. The gray padding can be easily removed and machine washed in cold water and tumbled dry on low heat.
- Q: What should I do if my STAR is involved in a crash?
If a school bus is involved in a moderate or severe crash, the entire STAR restraint must be replaced regardless if the STAR was occupied for use at the time of the crash. Reference the NHTSA Position Paper “Re-Use of Child Restraint Systems In School Buses After Minor Crashes” for more information on this matter. This document can be found on the NHTSA.gov website.
- Q: Can backpacks be worn when a child is restrained in a STAR?
Backpacks should never be worn by a child when riding in a STAR. The added weight could cause injury to the child in the event of a crash.
