10 Top Tips

Before you buy:

1. Avoid 2nd hand car seats, you cannot be sure of their history, or if they have exceeded their recommended lifespan

2. Research & Prioritise Safety. All seats must pass minimum standards of safety some manufacturers test way beyond these standards

3. Check your vehicle handbook to find out which seats can accommodate a child car seat, when to deactivate your airbags, where your tether points are and so much more

4. Get independent advice, if not from Child Seat Safety then contact your local authority road safety team. Many have been through the IOSH course or can direct you to someone who is experienced

At the point of sale

5. Ask for the car seat expert in store to serve you. Ask what qualifications they have. If they are IOSH approved in Child Seat Safety Awareness they should be able to provide you with their accreditation number.

6. If they aren’t available ask for an appointment, be prepared to spend some time with them, this isn’t going to be a five minute job

7. Where possible make sure you are shown how to fit the seat in your car. This avoids confusion & should give you confidence to fit the seat correctly yourself

After purchase

8. Don’t worry if you haven’t had it fitted by the advisor, or you’ve forgotten what to do  Car seat fitting clinics occur across the country so drop in & get your car seat checked

9. If you change your car, you’ll need to check your car seat is still compatible, so go back to your retailer and ask them to help

10. Don’t forget – children grow! so you’ll need to  regularly check that harnesses, seatbelts and head restraints are still suitable for your child
