Certified Car Seat Safety

Montana law requires all children under age six and weighing less than 60 lbs. to be in an appropriate child safety seat or booster seat. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends keeping children in their car seats for as long as possible before moving them to the next type of car seat. Many children are not tall enough to graduate from a booster seat to a lap and shoulder belt alone until they are at least 4’9” tall, which is about eight years or older.

Whether you’ve just installed a car seat or need help installing or using one, we can help. Certified technicians will inspect your car seat free of charge and show you how to correctly install and use it.
