Carseats and booster provide protection for infants and children in a crash, yet car crashes are a leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13. That is why it is so important to choose and use the right car seat correctly every time your child is in the car. Follow these important steps to choose the right seat, install it correct and keep you child safe!
OF CARSEATS AND BOOSTER SEATS ARE USED INCORRECTLY
Read the car seats instructions manual and the vehicle's owner manual on car seat installation.
Every seat needs to be installed using either the lower anchors or the seat belt to secure it in place, not both.
It should not move side-to-side or front-to-back more than 1 inch.
Forward facing seat-connect tether strap to the tether anchor and tighten. Very important as it limits forward head movement during impact.
Rear-facing seat-Use correct recline angle.
