Event description

Description

Whether you’ve just installed a car seat or need help installing or using one, get help at a car seat inspection. Our certified technicians will inspect your car seat with two main goals in mind. The first being providing you the knowledge needed to transport your child in the safest manner possible. The second is to provide you the information, skills, and confidence allowing you to install the car seat using the best practices available.


What to Expect:

The car seat installation experience is an interactive one. As the caregiver, you should leave confident that your child’s seat is installed correctly AND that you are comfortable reinstalling and using it correctly. To ensure that you have the best experience you should prepare for an education.


Things to Consider:

-If expecting, schedule an appointment 1 to 2 months prior to Mom’s due date.

-If your child is already born, know your child's weight and height.

-If your child is already born, bring your child with you. If possible, also bring another adult to help watch
the child while you are learning.

-Using the Child Car Seat Instructions, install the seat into your vehicle prior to your appointment.

-Look up “Child Safety Seats” in your Vehicle Owner’s Manual. You will learn how a child’s car seat
should be installed in YOUR car. The Car Seat Manual may not reference the requirements specic to
your vehicle.

-Bring the Car Seat Instructions AND the Vehicle Owner’s Manual with you to your appointment!

-Be prepared to learn, not just watch the CPS Technician install the car seat. They're trained to teach
you, not install it for you.

-This one-on-one education typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the car seat and the vehicle.
