After-market seat covers that can be replaced or put on top of your existing car seat cover can be dangerous. If they have not been crash tested with your vehicle. If you are in an accident and you are trying to sue the car seat manufacturer saying that something went wrong with the car seat and they find out that you've had after-market car seat cover on that car seat that was not provided when you took the car seat out of the box, they are going to say Hey, it's not our fault. we don't know what that product is. It wasn't crash tested. It's not worth the risk in my opinion to use after-market car seat cover unless it's been specifically approved and crash tested by that manufacturer. There are few brands on the market that have been crash tested to work with specific car seats. So make sure that you look for something that has been crash tested.
