It’s a fact that if your car seat is not installed . fitted correctly, your child is 70% more likely to be seriously injured or killed when involved in an accident.

 

The statistics also show that around 85% of new parents who install baby seats themselves, do so incorrectly. As a result, they put their child at risk in the event of an accident. Parents often don’t even realise until their child seat is checked by the police in a roadside check or by a professional fitter.

 

Besides putting your child’s life and safety at risk, you also may be risking expensive fines.

 

Common Car Seat Installation / Fitting Issues

There is a common problem that we see when a parent gets their car seat installed / fitted professionally. That is that the first time they remove or adjust the seat, they make simple common mistakes. Or another adult or child in the back seat accidentally undoes the vehicle seat belt that secures the car seat in the vehicle. This means that all the good work by the car seat fitter is undone.

 

Initial Car Seat Fitting / Installation is only 5-10% of correct use and yet in some circles it gets 95% of the attention.

 

Keeping any child safe with correct use of a child restraint is only possible if you as the parent, or as the day to day user, is aware of your ongoing responsibilities.  That is, the ongoing maintenance of the installation. Every parent / user needs to be aware of how to self monitor your own child restraint installation and use, no matter who installed it.

 

This is why when we install your seat, we spend time to show you how to use and adjust and re-install your seat. We also give you a list of daily and weekly checks to keep handy that you must do to ensure nothing has changed and put your child’s safety at risk. We show you what to look for and how to avoid common mistakes.

 

We strongly believe that education is the key to helping to resolve this issue. This is why we offer free installation to our customers who have purchased a car seat from us within 60 days of the purchase.

 

If you do remove the seat and still want it professionally re-installed again, we can do that too (at a small cost). Alternatively if you have already installed it and get our accredited fitter to do a 19 point safety check, we can provide that service too which is a little cheaper.

 

We carry a full range of extension straps and anchor bolts as well as other accessories at the store available (at an additional cost) if required.

 

Car Seat Installation Costs (seats not purchased from us or being re-installed in another vehicle)

If you have not purchased your seat from us or you are getting it re-installed don’t worry. We can still install it for a cost of $40 + any accessories such as anchor bolts or extension straps if required. We will also give you a refresher on what daily and weekly checks are required.

 

A 19 Point Safety Check Service is available at a cost of $20

 

Please allow up to 30 minutes for the installation to be done, we have a cafe in our building so that you can have a drink or bite to eat while you wait.

 

To purchase your seat online and take advantage of our Free Car Seat Installation, just choose the option below the add to cart to accept the Free Installation so that it is noted on your order and call us after purchasing your baby capsule, convertible car seat or booster seat to organise a fitting / installation date and time that is suitable.

 

It’s truly that simple!

 

If purchasing in store, then one of our product specialists can organise the installation with you at the time. Alternatively, you can call at a later date to organise it within 60 days of your purchase.
