2002 Cadillac Escalade

If a person were to insert their finger(s) into the pinch point when the head restraint folds, it could trap and pinch the finger(s) causing injury.

Seats — Front Assembly — Head Restraint

On certain sport utility vehicles equipped with rearward folding head restraints on the second row seats, two potential pinch points exist on each of the folding head restraints when the restraints are folded rearward as the seatback is folded down.
Dealers will install protective covers over the pinch points. Owner notification began November 8, 2002.
