Child car seat inspections
It’s important to properly install your child’s seat. The best source of information specific to your car seat is from the car-seat manufacturer. Always refer to the installation instructions the manufacturer provides with your car seat.
Car seats have become safer and easier to install, due to improved technology of both car-seat and vehicle design.
