    Need to replace Britax Marathon?

    My son peeled off the sticker on my britax marathon.

    I emailed them to see about getting a replacement sticker and they told me I can not get a replacement sticker and to stop using the seat.

    I'm not sure WHY a seat would become unsafe simply because a sticker fell off. It's a spare seat that is shared by my 3 year old and my 6 year old. It's hard to explain but only the top half of the sticker came off (the piece with the colors). I can still faintly see the words on the sticker and the level line, so I drew it on with a marker since it seems the level line is the important piece of information on the sticker (there is also a sticker with a level line on the other side of the seat with all the same information).

    I've owned the seat for 5 years, so I am quite familiar with the manual and how to convert between a rear and forward facing seat.

    I would imagine that certain stickers and certain wording are required to be there. They're gone, the seat is no longer compliant.

    Plus, the recline indicator being gone is a big deal.

    Even though I drew it back on?

    It seems like such a waste. I mean, I understand if britax can't sell the seat like that due to certain regulations, but why would it be unsafe for me as a consumer to use it?
