What type of maintenance is needed for child seats and seat belts?

Seat Belt Maintenance:
Clean your seat belts regularly with mild soap, water and a soft cloth.
Let them dry before allowing them to retract.

Check the condition of shoulder belt adjusters.
Check the condition of all seat belts (look for snags, tears and other signs of damage).
