Car Seat Safety Clinics

 

Want to learn how to install your child’s car safety seat?

Want to know when your child is ready to move on to the next seat or graduate from their booster seat? Our trained car seat technician can help!

Car seat installation appointments last about 30 minutes each. Please contact our office at (503) 623-4618 for an appointment. 

 

Child passenger safety technicians will check your child’s seat for:

  • Correct installation

  • Recalls and damage

  • Best fit for weight, height, and age
     

PLEASE NOTE:

  • The child who uses the seat must be present unless the baby is not yet born.

  • The vehicle in which the child travels must be brought to the car seat check.

  • Parents or guardians will be taught to correctly install and use the car seat.

 

Come with any questions you have and leave with peace of mind!
