Worth Reading


A great article at Startribune.com on the mistakes parents make regarding their child’s car seats: http://www.startribune.com/the-5-worst-car-seat-mistakes-parents-are-making/455643343/  Worth the time to read.

Very few installations and best practices are 100% correct.  Many parents move their kids to a booster seat too soon and many don’t remove the winter coat when buckling them into a five point harness.  Take a few minutes to read the owners manual and make an appointment at our next FREE car seat clinic by calling 763-785-6186.
