Unfortunately, car seats just ain’t what they used to be: simple. We get it- you’d rather jam a UAS clip in your eye than install your child(ren)’s car seats! Never fear! We are your local CPSAC-certified car seat coalition. We provide car seat installation and use education in the Renfrew County area. We’ll get your kids riding safely in no time.
We help you ensure that your car seats fit your child, vehicle, budget, and that you use them correctly- every time. 90% of car seats are installed incorrectly (and that’s rounding down!)
Our technicians are available for private one-2-one checks on an ongoing basis, and we strive to run public clinics whenever possible. During a check you can expect to receive education on your seat, your vehicle, best practice, and walk away knowing you can install and use your seat correctly. A single seat check generally takes approximately an hour.
We are a coalition of car seat technicians certified by the Child Passenger Safety Association of Canada– the only nationally recognised and maintained child passenger safety organisation in Canada. To be listed on this site, technicians must be in current good standing, maintain yearly knowledge updates, and serve the Renfrew County area.
Clinics are sponsored events where a team of certified technicians teach you to install and use your car seat correctly. Clinics are not “do it for you” affairs- rather we ensure you leave with the skills and confidence to transport your children safely- every time. You and your child(ren) will drive thousands of kilometres, and vehicular collisions are one of the leading causes of death amongst young children- one that is mostly preventable!
