Children are generally not heavy or tall enough to sit in a vehicle without some sort of booster or safety seat. Of course, it can be tricky for parents in Austin, TX to install them correctly. The good news is that there are a series of steps that can help them keep their children safe whenever they ride in the car.

The first step is to read the owner's manuals for both your vehicle and the child safety seat. This will tell you where to attach the seat and how to ensure that it is level. Seats for babies should face toward the rear of the vehicle while seats for older children can face the front of the car.

A car seat's straps should sit flat on a child's chest and should not be too snug. You can ask us at Certified for additional guidance installing a seat.
