What is the Correct Way to Install a Child Safety Seat?

When you buy a safety seat for your child, it is important that it is installed correctly to prevent an injury in the event of an accident. At Tom Scott Honda serving Nampa, ID, we would like to help you keep your child safe with these car seat installation tips.

Prior to installing a car seat in your vehicle, read the instructions that are found in its manual. It is always recommended to keep a car seat placed in the back seat, and you can reference your vehicle's handbook to see if any latch anchors are offered for car seats. In addition, always be sure to check and see if the seat belt is locked and tightened. If a car seat moves more than one inch in any direction, then it wasn't installed properly.
