Car Seat Installation Title

Fitting a car seat is not as easy as following a set of simple instructions provided by the car seat manufacturer. This is because car seat fitting varies depending on your cars make and model.

Drivers are now faced with a £30 penalty and or a fine of up to £500 if they do not comply with car seat regulations.

The RAC estimate seven out of ten car seats are fitted incorrectly, which is very worrying because a child who is not seated correctly can be killed at just a few mph.

Where to place your child car seat?

When possible always fit your child's car seat in the rear of the vehicle as this is by far the safest place.

Never fit a rear facing car seat on your passenger seat that is protected by an airbag, unless the airbag has been deactivated because its unsafe and against the law.

You can fit a forward facing car seat in your passenger seat that is protected by an airbag only if your car hand book says you can do so.

Picking the correct car seat:

First of all, check your child's weight as this is a very important factor when choosing a car seat for safety reasons. Once you know your child's weight you can find all the car seats that's are compatible. I suggest you do a quick search on the internet at different car seat reviews to see what other parents think of them. All companies claim to have the safest seat available so getting impartial feedback from other parents will help you make that all important decision.

Types Of Car Seat Fitting:

Belt fitting:

The vast majority of car and booster seats are secured using your cars 3 point seat belt. This means almost every car can accommodate a child seat offering protection while out and about.

Isofix Fitting:

This is by far the most safest type of car seat installation. ISOFIX stands for International Standards Organisation FIX in the UK and Europe, and has been around since the early 2000's. It was designed for fitting car seats quickly and simply.

All new cars are manufactured with attachment points in standard locations. This allows compatible car seats to latch on to them and lock in to the mounting points in the car, with a simple push and click system. As the seats are anchored to the car chassis, its much more rigid and does not move in the event of an accident.

Car Seat Fitting Conclusion:

Always follow the car seat fitting instructions, never guess even if you have fitted many car seats.

Check your car handbook to see if there is any requirements or positions where a car seat can not be fitted.

Make sure the car seat is as firm as possible with no movement. If there is any movement the car seat will not fully protect your child in the event of an accident.

If your unable to get the car seat firm, try a different position in the car. If your still struggling i strongly recommend you contact halfords. They offer a brilliant wefit free car seat service.

Using the car seat:

Before every journey, check to make sure the car seat is still firmly fitted, adjust if required. Once your baby is in the seat make sure all points of the harnesses are firm against your baby. These too should be checked and adjusted before every journey. Some modern car seats actually display a indicator to say if the belts are at the correct setting to maximise safety and awareness.
