Britax Checking Station

Did you know that 3 out of 4 car seats are installed incorrectly, or not used properly? Make an appointment for one of our upcoming car seat checks to be absolutely sure you're using the right car seat for your child and installing it correctly each and every time,

What is a car seat check 

At a car seat check, you will meet with one of our a nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST), who will assist you with car seat installation. The CPST will teach you the correct way to install your child seat, provide safety recommendations, and answer any questions that you may have.

To ensure our CPST is prepared when you arrive for your appointment, you will need to provide your child’s age, weight, height, the make and model of your car seat, and whether your child is rides rear-facing or forward-facing.

What do I need to bring to a car seat checking station?

For best results, please bring to your car seat check:

  • Your child
  • Your vehicle and vehicle owner's manual
  • Your child safety seat and all parts, accessories, and instructions
  • A second adult to assist with watching your child while you learn how to install your car seat

Please note: Bringing your little one allows us to show you the proper harnessing for your child specifically. However, we can still offer guidance if your child is unable to attend with you.
