Infant car seat installation
Follow our step-by-step instructions on installing a rear-facing car seat. Once you've done your best to install your seat, pay a visit to a certified CPS technician for a once-over.
A technician will determine if and how the seat fits your vehicle and your child, check to make sure that the product has not been recalled, and—most important—make sure you know how to correctly install it by yourself.
How To Install a Rear-Facing Car Seat
1. Install the basePlace the base in the center of the backseat and thread the seat belt through the guides. Kneel on the base as you tighten the belt; make sure the base cannot move more than 1 inch in any direction.
2. Put the baby in the seatPlace your child in the car seat and secure the harness; make sure the harness is snug against your baby's hips and shoulders. Adjust the chest clip so it's level with your baby's armpits.
3. Put the seat in the carPlace the car seat in the base, making sure it snaps in securely. Flip the handle down and lock it into place; this will prevent it from harming your baby in case of an accident.
4. Check the angleThe seat must be installed at an angle that keeps your baby in a semi-reclined position; his head must not be able to flop forward. Place a rolled-up towel under the base to get the right angle, if needed.
