Proper Safety Seat Directions:


Stage 1 of Proper Car Safety Seat Installation Directions   Rear-Facing Seat

For the best possible protection, keep infants and young toddlers in the back seat, in a rear-facing child safety seat, as long as possible up to the height or weight limit of the particular seat.

Stage 2 of Proper Car Safety Seat Installation Directions   Front-Facing Seat

Children may ride in forward-facing child safety seats, in the back seat, until they reach the upper weight or height limit of the seat (usually around age 4 and 40 lbs).
Stage 3 of Proper Car Safety Seat Installation Directions   Booster Seats

Once children outgrow their forward-facing seat, they should ridein booster seats, in the back seat, until vehicle seat belts fit properly.
Stage 4 of Proper Car Safety Seat Installation Directions   Seat Belt

When children outgrow their booster seats, they can use the adult seat belt in the back seat if it fits properly. Kids over 4’9” usually fit well in a lap and shoulder belt.
