Child Restraints

Make the safest choice child restraint


2 in 3 car seats are not being used properly.

 

Don't take any chances with your child restraint. Choose the right restraint to suit your child's height, weight and age.

 

It could save your child's life.

They are counting on you to keep them safe.

  • Choose correctly
  • Fit correctly
  • Use correctly
  • Check correctly


That sounds simple but it isn't always. You might have a small car and need to fit three restraints in the back seat or a ute requiring a child to be placed in the front seat. 


For peace of mind ensure your child restraints are fitted correctly, get them professionally checked by an RMS authorised fitter.

Your child is worth the time it takes to get their restraint checked or fitted.


FREE Child Restraint Checking Day


Make sure your child is safe with a free inspection by authorised restraint fitters. You can have your child car seats, harnesses and booster seats checked for safety and fit.
