How do I install a child seat?

It’s vital that you have your child in the right type of car seat for his or her age, height and weight. However, it’s also essential that you have the car seat secured properly in the back seat. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Make sure you’re using the right shoulder/lap belt combo.
  2. Route the belt through the back of the car seat.
  3. Latch the belt securely into the buckle.
  4. Test the buckle and latch to make sure they’re secure.
  5. Activate automatic locking mode on the seat belt:
    • Pull the shoulder belt all the way out.
    • Let it retract on its own. It should click while doing so.

Tip

Refer to your car seat manufacturer’s specific instructions for installation.
