Why get a professional child car seat fitting
Car seat fittings can be difficult to install
Victoria’s child restraint laws state that the car seat fitting must be correctly fitted to the vehicle, whilst also being the correct size for the child, properly adjusted and fastened.
Legally in Victoria, parents are allowed to fit the child restraint into their own vehicle as long as they follow the manufacturer’s instructions. However, with rising confusion around the legal requirements for child restraint fittings, types of restraints and variations in car models, fitting child restraints has become increasingly complicated for parents who want the highest level of safety for their children.
Further, once the car seats are installed, they are often not used correctly. It is important that a qualified professional demonstrates how to properly tighten and adjust the car seat as your child grows, to ensure the continual effectiveness of your mobile car seat fitting.
Ensure compliance with Australian Standards
When it comes to the safety of your child, the Australian and Victorian governments have put a number of legal requirements into place.
Child restraints must meet the minimum Australian/New Zealand standards (AS/NZ 1754) and be installed in compliance with these standards to maximise your child’s safety.
