A Few Pointers to Properly Install Your Child's Safety Seat

Automobile collisions are always stressful, but it can be devastating when someone is injured, and children are at an increased risk of injuries if their safety seats are not properly in place. Check out these tips from Auto Gallery Imports in Westbury, NY on how to install your child's seat the right way.

There are three types of safety seats for children: rear-facing, front-facing, and booster seats. If you're unsure of which type of seat your child needs, the NHTSA website has an interactive feature that can be of assistance. Keep in mind that the back seat is the safest place for children, so always put your child's seat in the back to help keep them protected.

Follow the manufacturer's installation instructions to ensure it's correctly placed in position. Use the seat belt and lower tethers to secure the seat. Try to give it a wiggle to see if it moves. It should never move more than one inch. You can visit the NHTSA website to find a child safety seat inspection location where it can be checked by an expert.
