Free TIPP Certified Child Car Seat Installation Inspections
Because some things are more important than money
Our service manager, Mike Cooper, has recently completed 40 plus hours of training and is now a TIPP Certified Child Car Seat installation inspector. We offer this inspection free of charge to any of our friends and neighbors in the Yardley/Morrisville area. Below is some information regarding child car seat requirements as your child grows.
For the best possible protection keep your infant in the back seat, in a rear-facing child car seat, until 2 years of age or up to the maximum height or weight limit of their child car seat. Children in the second year of life (12-24 months) are over 5 times less likely to be seriously injured or die in a crash if they are secured rear-facing.
When your child reaches the maximum height or weight limit of the rear facing child car seat you’ll need a forward-facing child car seat. Preferred location is still in the rear seat of your vehicle.
A booster seat will be necessary as you child reaches the maximum height or weight limit of the forward-facing child car seat. Again, the preferred location is the rear seat of your vehicle, with the lap belt across the upper thighs, and the shoulder belt across the chest.
Your child has outgrown the need for the booster seat when the vehicle lap belt fits properly across the upper thighs, and shoulder belt fits across the chest. If your child can put his feet flat on the floor, with his back on the seat, without slouching, and seat belts fit properly, it may be time to graduate from the booster seat. Until the age of 13, it’s still a good idea for your child to ride in the rear seat of your vehicle.
Below are some of the details of a TIPP certified car seat installation inspection. It takes about 30 minutes, and of course we’ll need the child car seat, your vehicle, and most important, you!
Stop in or give us a call to schedule your child car seat installation inspection. While you’re here we’d be happy to take care of your PA auto inspection, Mileage based maintenance, or any other auto repair needs you may have.
