The first step to properly installing a child safety seat is selecting a new, high-quality seat that’s appropriate for the child’s age and size. An infant or toddler under age three is generally best seated in a rear-facing model while older children can use front-facing seats or boosters depending upon their height and weight.

Every car seat and vehicle owner’s manual comes with detailed information on correct car seat installation methods. Use this information as well as any specific car seat accessories that have been incorporated into your vehicle to securely place your child’s seat into the vehicle’s second or third row.
