Important Reminders:

  • Please notify us of any cancellations or changes to your appointment ASAP. Cancellations should be made 24 hours before your appointment. Notifying us allows us to schedule others for that open spot. The link to cancel the appointment is above.
  • Please read your car seat owner’s manual and, if possible, install the car seat as best you can prior to your appointment.
  • Please bring your vehicle owner’s manual if you can.
  • All new seats should be out of the box before your appointment time.
  • We encourage you to bring your child with you so that we can assure proper fit of the harness straps. If your child will not be present, please sit them in the car seat and mark with a piece of tape where the top of their shoulders are on the car seat.
  • If you have an unborn child, we will use dolls to demonstrate the proper use of the harness straps at your appointment.
  • We want to make sure that you have the best educational experience possible at your appointment. It is important that you arrive on time to your appointment. If you are more than 10 minutes late, we might have to reschedule your appointment in order to meet the needs of others.
