How it works

  • Car seat checks are done by appointment only. Each car seat appointment is approximately 25 minutes.
  • Please familiarize yourself with your car seat manual, as well as the section of your vehicle owner's manual regarding proper installation of the car seat or booster.
  • Please install the car seat to the best of your ability using the instructions provided in these manuals.
  • Please make sure the seating area (vehicle seat and floorboard) of your car is clear of toys and food so that our technicians have enough space to work and instruct you on the installation of your child restraint(s).
  • We will not work with child safety seats that are expired or more than five years past the manufacture date, if no expiration date is visible.
  • Expectant parents should have the child-safety seat checked at least one month before the baby is due.
  • Car Seat Check request forms submitted after hours, over the weekend or on a holiday, will not be processed until regular  business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday).
