Learning how to install a child car seat is the key to keeping your little one safe on the road. Whether you lost the original instructions or bought a child seat that didn't include them, you will follow the same steps. Start with the base, which supports the seat. Place the base behind the driver's side or passenger's side in the backseat. Move the seat belt through the latch, making sure that is is smooth and doesn't have any twists or kinks. You can then shut the buckle and lock the belt. Some car seats now come with lower anchors. Connect the lower anchors onto the anchor points in your vehicle. It's helpful to consult your manual to find where they are. You can then tighten the belts to the anchors to keep your child safer. Most fire departments can help you install a new car seat if you have any problems.
