How do I install a rear-facing car seat?

If you have an infant or a toddler, you’ll need to use a rear-facing car seat to travel with them. It’s vital that this is installed correctly. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Put the car seat in the second row seat.

  2. Pull the shoulder/lap belt combination out of the retractor.

  3. Route the belt through the anchor points and over the lower portion of the child seat.

  4. Buckle it securely.

  5. Pull the shoulder belt (by itself) all the way out.

  6. Let it retract a short amount to engage the automatic locking retractor.

  7. Push down on the car seat and pull out any slack from the seat belt.
