Why Child Car Restraints Matter

Child car restraints are not just accessories but a lifeline on the road. Every parent knows their child's safety is of utmost importance, and this is where we serve as a reliable name. Our team of experts specialises in:

  • Professional Installation: We ensure that your child's car seat is correctly and securely fitted so you have peace of mind every time you hit the road.
  • Inspection and Adjustment: Regular checks and adjustments are vital as your child grows. We make sure your child's restraint remains snug and safe.
  • Custom Fitting: Some vehicles require modifications to accommodate child car seats. We handle these installations with precision.
  • Additional Anchorage Points: We can enhance the safety of your child's car seat by adding extra anchorage points.
  • Seatbelt Retrofitting: Whether it's a lap belt, lap-sash belt, static, or retractable, we ensure your child's seat is secure with the proper seatbelt

Age-Appropriate Restraints

Choosing the right one is crucial based on your child's age and size. And here's a quick guide:

  • Rearward-Facing Seats: Babies and infants weighing up to 12 kg should always travel in rearward-facing seats. This position offers the best protection for their delicate neck and spine.
  • Forward-Facing Seats: Once your child outgrows the rearward-facing seat, switch to a forward-facing seat. These are suitable for children from 6 months to 4 years or until they reach the weight limit.
  • Booster Seats: For children aged 4 to 7 years or when they outgrow the forward-facing seat, booster seats provide the necessary height to use adult seatbelts safely.
  • Seatbelts: Once your child turns seven years old and is tall enough to sit without a booster seat, they can smoothly transition to using seatbelts for added safety.

Staying informed about your local requirements is crucial, as safety regulations can vary from state to state. Consult your state's child seat manual and guidelines to ensure compliance with the appropriate rules at all times.
