Car Seat Installation Tips from Chevrolet and Safe Kids

As part of the Global Road Safety Week, Chevrolet and Safe Kids Worldwide are teaming up in Dallas to help raise awareness of car seat safety. Safe Kids found that ~73% of car seats are not properly installed, so there is a significant need to educate amongst parents.

Alexandra Cereska, Chevrolet Equinox Occupant Performance Engineer and Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician demonstrates proper child restraint installation in the all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.

Chevrolet and Safe Kids hosted a free car seat checkup event in Dallas (at the Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium) to teach families how to properly install and use car and booster seats. The event included free car seat/booster seat checks, car seat installation demonstrations on the new 2018 Chevy Equinox, heatstroke prevention and Spot the Tot parking lot safety demonstrations.

To help spread awareness, Chevrolet and Safe Kids developed some car seat installation tips for every parent to keep in mind.

Top 5 Things to Do at Home

  1. Right Seat. This is an easy one. Check the label on your car seat to make sure it’s appropriate for your child’s age, weight and height. Like milk, your car seat has an expiration date. Just double check the label on your car seat to make sure it is still safe.
  2. Right Place. Kids are VIPs, just ask them. We know all VIPs ride in a back seat, so keep all children in a back seat until they are 13.
  3. Right Direction. Keep your child in a rear-facing car seat until at least age 2. When he or she outgrows the seat, move your child to a forward-facing car seat and make sure to attach the top tether after you tighten and lock the seat belt or lower attachments (LATCH).
  4. Inch Test. Once your car seat is installed, give it a good shake at the base. Can you move it more than an inch side-to-side or front-to-back? A properly installed seat will not move more than an inch.
  5. Pinch Test. Make sure the harness is tightly buckled and coming from the correct slots (check car seat manual). Now, with the chest clip placed at armpit level, pinch the strap at your child’s shoulder. If you are unable to pinch any excess webbing, you’re good to go.

The all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a fresh and modern SUV sized and designed to meet the needs of the compact SUV customer. Its expressive exterior has an all-new, athletic look echoing the global Chevrolet design cues seen on vehicles such as the Cruze, Bolt EV and Trax.
