attend a car seat clinic

Properly securing children into child car seats can be complicated. When in doubt, it’s best to check it out.

If you have not had your car seat checked by a trained technician, there are generally a couple free car seat clinics each month.
During your appointment, a technician will check your car seat’s safety, ensure it is properly installed, demonstrate how your child should be secured in the seat and send you on your way.

I have attended two car seat clinics -- once for his bucket seat and another when he went forward facing -- and gained useful information that improved my child’s safety both times.

According to SGI’s web site, there are also a few certified child car seat technicians in Saskatoon and surrounding areas who are accepting appointments. Click here to find a technician near you.

Additional car seat safety information is available from SGI, the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute and Transport Canada.
