Finding the right seat

Review the label on the car seat to verify that it is appropriate for your child’s age, weight and height. Do not forget to check for an expiration date as well. It never hurts to double check the label to make sure your child is safe..

Use the right place

Your kids are VIPs. Where do all VIPs ride? They ride in the back seat! It is best to keep all children under the age 13 in the back seat.

Face the right direction

It is important to keep your child in a rear-facing car seat for as long as possible. This usually lasts until around the age of 2 or once the child has outgrown the rear-facing seat. Once they are in the forward-facing car seat, make sure to attach the top tether after you tighten and lock the seat belt.

Inch test

After you have installed the car seat, give it a good shake from the base. If you can not move it more than an inch in any direction, then you have installed it correctly.

car seat pinch test

Pinch test

Verify that the harness is tightly buckled and coming from the appropriate slots. Place the chest clip at armpit level, and pinch the strap at your child’s shoulder. If you are unable to pinch any excess webbing, you have installed the harness correctly.

Larry H. Miller Dealerships is committed to giving back and enriching lives in the communities they serve, paying special attention to causes that serve children.
