How do I know if my car seat is installed correctly?
In order to install a car seat correctly read both the car seat manual and the child restraint section of your vehicle’s owner manual. The car seat should move no more than 1” side to side or front to back where the seat belt or the LATCH belt runs through the car seat. If you are unsure of the fit, schedule an appointment with a certified child passenger safety technician at the Yolo County Health Department by contacting Keri Hess, 530-666-8561.
What do I do with a car seat that is no longer being used?The Yolo County Health and Human Services Agency has a car seat recycling program.
What is the best car seat for my child?
The best car seat for your child is a car seat that fits your child (check for height and weight limits), fits the car, and the one that you can install properly every time. Not all car seats are compatible with all cars.
In order to find a seat that best fits your car, ask the store associate if you can take it out to your vehicle to check the fit prior to purchase, as some stores will allow you to do so.
