TIPS for Safe Car Seat Use
-Do not install a used seat if you don’t know its entire history. If a car seat has been in the slightest accident (even a fender bender) it should be discarded as it may have been compromised. Weakness is not always visible.
-There is an expiration date stamped into all car seats. Pay attention to that date. Plastic breaks down and therefore will weaken.
-Always read the manual for the car seat AND the car before installing the seat.
-Try before you buy. Stores should allow you to take the car seat to your car. All seats are different and all cars are different. Some seats fit better in one car vs another.
