Vehicle Inspection Needs

Before you start the process of installing a child’s car seat, you should make sure the entire vehicle is operating as safely as possible. Make sure the car, truck, or SUV that will be transporting children is current on maintenance and has been thoroughly inspected. If your vehicle is on the older end of the spectrum, it might be worth looking for a model closer to the current model year to have access to more advanced safety features.

Tips For Installing a Car Seat

Every car and every child’s car seat is different. It will be important to follow the seat’s manufacturer’s instructions, as well as those of the LATCH system that is required in most vehicles built in the last 15-plus years. If you get really stuck, many fire and police departments offer resources to help people install car seats. Take a look at the videos below for some additional hits.
