The Ultimate Car Seat Buying Guide

How to Install a Car Seat?


All child car seats come with their own instruction manuals. Keep the manual safe at all times, preferably along with the car seat, so that you can refer to it whenever you have any doubts. Fitting instructions might vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so be sure to follow the instructions specific to the car seat you’ve bought. In case you lose the manual, check the manufacturer’s website to access necessary information.
Most cases of discomfort when using car seats occur because the instructions are not properly followed. In fact, many organizations claim that at least 8 out of 10 car seats are installed improperly. Therefore, you need to pay great attention to the fitting and upkeep of your child’s car seat.

Here are a few general guidelines for installing child car seats –

Fitting a Rear-Facing Car Seat

1 Place the child car seat in the back seat, facing the rear window of the car. Avoid fitting the rear-facing car seat in the front passenger seat. In case you absolutely must, make sure the passenger airbag is turned off. 2 Attach the seat belts to the car seat’s base. Usually, there are guides on the child car seat for the car’s seat belts to pass through it. Make sure the belt passes through all the right slots. Ensure that the car seat is tight when you attempt to pull it from side to side. It must not shift more than an inch. 3 Recline the seat enough to ensure that the baby’s head doesn’t flop forward during a jerk. 4 Ensure that the shoulder straps are away from the neck. You can place a towel between the crotch strap and the baby so that the baby does not feel any discomfort.

Fitting a Forward-Facing Car Seat

1 Place the child car seat on the rear seat, facing the front. The base should sit firmly on the rear seat and the back should be firm against the cushion. 2 Pass the tethers through the belt path on the child car seat and attach them to the car’s tether anchor. 3 The lap belt must go over the child’s thighs and not over baby’s tummy.

Installing Booster Car Seats

1 Ensure that the booster seat has both shoulder and lap belts. 2 Make sure the seat belt goes over the child’s shoulder. It should not cut into your baby’s neck. 3 The lap belt must go over the child's thighs and not over baby's tummy. 4 Position the car seat such that the child is sitting in an upright position.

Things to Remember when Installing Child Car Seat

1 It is recommended you get the car seat installed by the manufacturer for the first time. If this is not possible, then ask for a demo from the manufacturer. 2 Whether you are using a rear-facing child car seat or a forward-facing one, the best position to place it is in the middle of the rear seat of your car. However, in case it does not fit properly there, try securing it behind the front passenger seat and finally behind the driver. 3 Make sure you don’t fit the car seat anywhere near the airbags, either the ones on the side, or the ones installed for the passenger seat in the front. In case of an accident, the force from the airbag can cause injury to the child. 4 Always check the car seat’s compatibility with your vehicle. For example, if you have a car seat that works on the LATCH system, your vehicle needs to have the necessary anchorage and tethers too. It’s best to buy a car seat that is compatible with the make and model of your car. 5 Keep the instruction manuals handy in case of a combination or convertible car seat. You may need them when changing positions. 6 Never make any modifications by yourself in the car seat. In case you need something changed, approach the manufacturer.
