Car Seat Installation event:  Eighty percent of child car seats are installed incorrectly.

If you’re not sure that your child’s car seat is installed properly in your vehicle, this is a FREE opportunity to have certified Car Seat Technicians install it and educate you on how to make your child as safe as possible.
