Top Car Seat Mistakes

Test your car seat knowledge! Can you spot the 7 things wrong with the installation and harnessing of this forward-facing car seat? In this video, I’ll show you the most common errors we see and how to fix them to keep your forward-facing rider safe in their seat!

Top Tether on a Forward Facing Car Seat

If your child is in a forward-facing car seat with a harness, it has a top tether anchor. USE IT! ⁠⁠ When a car seat is tightly installed, and the top tether anchor is in proper use, it limits a forward-facing car seat from tipping forward by 4-6+ inches.

Why My 9 Year Old Rides in a Booster

Why does my 9-year-old still ride in a booster seat? Because that is what is safest! Your big kid may be ready to ditch their booster car seat but, not so fast! Car seat safety doesn’t stop when your child hits big kid status. What is safest isn’t always what is convenient or even what your state’s booster seat requirement is.
