Car Seat Installation

Bring your questions with you to your individualized appointment with one of our certified child passenger safety technicians.  They will review proper installation of your baby’s car seat in your vehicle and provide you with the knowledge and skills to be able to install the car seat yourself!  This isn’t just for new parents!  Bring your toddler seats and booster seats too!  Grandparents and other family members are encouraged to make an appointment too to ensure they understand proper installation and for assistance with installing the car seat correctly.  This appointment is a FREE service to the community!
