Car Seat Information

Studies prove that 93% of all car seats are installed incorrectly.

3 Things to Know about Car Seats

  1. Car seats should be secured tightly in the back seat of the vehicle. It should not move more than one inch side-to-side or front-to-back when pulled at the belt path.
  2. Forward-facing seats with a top tether strap should be connected to the tether anchor and tightened. This limits forward head movement in a crash.
  3. Rear-facing seats need to be installed at the correct recline angle, most seats have built in angle indicators or levels.
