Forward Facing Harness Fit Check

The correct use of the harness is a critical to its effectiveness.

Installing your child’s seat correctly is just one of the many important parts of properly using that seat. Using the harness correctly plays a vital role in protecting your child in the event of a sudden stop or crash.
Be sure that you check the harness periodically since it will need to be adjusted as your child grows. And remember to always consult your manual for how and when to make those adjustments.

Where Should the Chest Clip Go?

Do you know what the proper position for your child’s harness retainer clip (more commonly referred to as the “chest clip”) should be? The top of it should be centered on the child’s sternum (breastbone). An easy way to check for this is to ensure that the top of it aligned between the child’s armpits and nipples.
