That’s why we’re committed to helping parents and caregivers learn the ins and outs of proper car seat safety, including how to properly buckle your child in a car seat. Tighten the Harness Buckle the harness and chest clip then put your hand behind the clip to eliminate slack in the webbing. After outgrowing the forward-facing car seat, use a booster seat until seat belts fit properly.
Once children outgrow their forward-facing seat, they should be buckled in a belt positioning booster seat, in the back seat, until seat belts fit properly. If your child is riding in a forward-facing car seat with a 5-point harness, you should see a strap attached to the back of the seat with a hook on the end. This strap is called the tether, and it should be used anytime the car seat is being used in the forward-facing position. Once your child has graduated to a forward-facing car seat, it’s recommended they remain in it until they reach the height and weight limit of their seat. The key is to follow the label on your car seat.
So, parents, take your time. Advance your child from rear-facing, to forward-facing, to a booster seat, then to a seat belt only when your child is too heavy or tall to meet the requirements of your current car seat. (2) A child at least two years of age or a child under two years of age who has outgrown his rear-facing child passenger restraint system must be secured in a forward-facing child passenger restraint system with a harness in a rear passenger seat of the vehicle until the child exceeds the highest height or weight requirements of the forward. Use the harness slots described in the car seat’s instruction manual, usually those at or below the child’s shoulders.
Place the harness straps over your child’s shoulders. Buckle the harness straps and chest clip, with the chest clip even with your child’s armpits. Forward-facing seats Once your child outgrows the rear-facing car seat, your child is ready to travel in a forward-facing car seat with a harness and tether. Keep your child in a forward-facing car seat with a harness and tether until he or she reaches the top height or weight limit allowed by your car seat’s manufacturer. Children are ready for forward-facing car seats after they outgrow the size or weight limit of their rear-facing seat.
