Risk
This product poses a serious risk of injuries because the backrest of the second seat row may not completely slot in because of a too short Bowden cable. In an accident the occupants of the second row would be at a higher risk of injuries than those in the first row as it is the attachment of their seatbelt attached to the backrest that is affected.
