What do I need to know before my appointment?

  • Appointments generally take about 30 minutes.
  • Bring the instruction manual for your car seat and/or booster seat as well as your vehicle manual (if available).
  • Please arrive at least five minutes prior to the start of your appointment.
  • If you need to cancel, please give us a call.

What will happen during my appointment?

  • We will teach you how to safely install your car seat and/or booster seat in your vehicle.
  • We will make sure you are using the correct seat for your child’s age, weight, and height.
  • If you decided to bring your child with you, we can make sure their harness is fitting correctly.

To check if your child’s safety seat has been recalled, check the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Child Seat Recall Campaign Listing.
