How to Register Car Seats

Americans are hesitant to part with their personal information, and given the state of the world that’s probably a prudent decision.

But like everything, there are exceptions to the rule. If you’re the parent of a child who rides in a car safety seat it’s a good idea to register the seat with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or your car seat manufacturer (if not both).

Registering your car seat is important because should there be a change in federal safety standards, or a recall of your product, the NHTSA or the manufacturer can contact you immediately to fix the problem.

To register your seat information with the NHTSA, you can mail, fax, or email your safety seat registration information to:

U. S. Department of Transportation
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
Office of Defects Investigation
Correspondence Research Division (NVS-216)
Room W48-301
1200 New Jersey Avenue SE.
Washington, DC 20590
Fax: (202) 366-1767
E-mail: childseatregister@dot.gov

The NHTSA form can be found here.

Many safety seat manufacturer’s encourage you to also register your products directly on their website. To find the manufacturer’s safety seat registration page, Google “(name of manufacturer) car seat registration” and you’ll be directed to the appropriate page.
