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.
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.

Wingecarribee Shire Council is supporting the child road safety holiday campaign in conjunction with the Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation (LBDF) to raise awareness of the importance of child road safety.
The foundation was set up by Michelle and David McLaughlin in 2014 after their young son was tragically killed in a pedestrian accident while on holidays.
As part of the campaign, ‘Holiday Time: Slow Down, Kids Around’ signage and banners will be erected at locations popular with children these summer school holidays.
Council’s Road Safety Officer is urging motorists to heed the campaign and slow down over summer.
Together with the Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation all road users are encouraged to work together to create a safer environment for all children living in or visiting the Highlands these summer holidays.
