Fitting Your Forward Facing Car Seat – handy tip
When fitting your forward facing car seat, position it centrally on your vehicle’s seat. Using your knee, press the car seat firmly into the vehicle’s seat and tighten the car seat belts. This ensures a really tight fit into your car. Once fitted, please ensure the car seat belts are not twisted and re-tighten regularly.
