What to Expect During Your Appointment

When you schedule an appointment with us, our team will guide you through the entire process of child safety seat installation. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Selection of the Proper Child Restraint: We will help you choose the right safety seat based on your child’s age, weight, and height. This is crucial as different stages of a child’s growth require different types of restraints.
  2. Proper Placement of Your Child: Our technicians will demonstrate how to place your child into the restraint correctly. This includes adjusting the harness to fit snugly and ensuring that the seat belt or LATCH system is used correctly.
  3. Correct Installation in Your Vehicle: We will show you how to install the safety seat in your vehicle securely. This involves checking the angle of the seat, ensuring that it does not move more than an inch side-to-side or front-to-back, and confirming that all components are locked in place.
