Car Seat Installation

Installing Your Car Seat

Out of the 1,488 car seat inspections completed by the Alaska Child Passenger Safety Coalition in 2015, 88% were either installed incorrectly or used incorrectly.

Nationally Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians are available at AIPC to help you ensure that your car seat is installed correctly. Call us at (907) 929-3939 to set an appointment with one of our Technicians. If you would like to try and install your seat yourself before your appointment, or need a refresher on the basics, please check out the demonstration videos below. Don’t forget to check your car seat’s manual for instructions specific to your car seat.

For assistance determining which seat is best for your child, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Car Seat Finder website.
