  • Make sure that a child falls into the correct weight range for the seat.

  • Avoid dressing a child in bulky clothing. Do not place any objects between the child and the restraint system.

  • Regularly check the fit of a child seat. Replace child seats or harnesses that show signs of wear.

  • Make sure that all the slack is removed from the adult seat belt.

  • Make sure that any belt positioning sliders on the seat belts are adjusted such that there is no slack in the lap belt after fastening.
