Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians are available to give hands-on support to parents and caregivers to help them learn how to install their child safety seat correctly. There are Child Passenger Safety Seat Permanent Checking Stations and Safety Seat Check events periodically throughout the year.
The car seat installation experience is an interactive one and takes about 20–30 minutes, depending on the car seat and the vehicle. Parents and caregivers will be asked to complete a form prior to checking your safety seat for proper installation, fit for your child, expiration and recalls.
ALERT: Due to COVID-19, all car seat checks are currently being conducted virtually.
Here is How You Should Prepare
Many agencies require appointments several weeks in advance. If you're expecting, schedule an appointment one to two months prior to your due date. If you are able, please bring your child with you and/or know your child's weight and height.
Please install your seat prior to your appointment using the safety seat instructions and vehicle owner's manual. Please bring both the instructions and the manual to your appointment.
