Portable Hook-On Chairs

Proposed Rule: July 02, 2015


The proposed rule would establish a safety standard for portable hook-on chairs under the Danny Keysar Child Product Safety Notification Act, section 104 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008.

A “portable hook-on chair” is usually a legless seat constructed to locate the occupant at a table in such a position and elevation so that the surface of the table can be used as the feeding surface for the occupant and is supported solely by the table on which it is mounted. The ASTM standard F1235-15 specifies the appropriate ages and weights for children using portable hook-on chairs as “between the ages of six months and three years and who weigh no more than 37 lb (16.8 kg).”

The rule would incorporate by reference ASTM F1235-15, without modification.
