Car Seat Selector

Car Seat Selector

The first step to keeping your child safe in the car is to select the proper car seat. This tool can help you choose the best seat for your child’s size, or help you decide if he or she is ready to stop using a car seat and transition to an adult seat belt. Height and weight ranges vary by seat. Always check your car seat owner's manual.

AAP & Akron Children's Hospital recommend all children under 13 remain buckled in the back seat of vehicles.

Without a booster seat, does the seat belt cross the shoulder between the neck and arm?
Without a booster seat, is the lap belt as low as possible, touching the thighs?
Can the child stay seated like this for the whole trip?
