‘Approximately 70% of child restraints are not installed correctly. A child restraint that has not been fitted properly can result in serious injury or even the death of a child in a crash’- RACV
Your baby’s safety is so important, that it’s worth getting your capsule or car seat professionally fitted. Ask the fitter to give you some tips on using the restraint correctly.
Make sure the straps are ALWAYS positioned correctly over your child with no twists or kinks and that they are at the correct shoulder height. You will need to adjust this (as per your car seat manual) as your child grows.
You can find accredited car seat fitters online who will service your area. For Melbourne we use and recommend Car Safe Kids http://carsafekids.com.au
