Making child car seat safety a priority should be a no brainer. However, 59 percent of car seats are not installed correctly and 80% of all children’s car seats are put in too loosely. Having an accident is bad enough, but knowing a child was injured because their car seat was not installed properly or tight enough should not happen.
If a car seat is installed so that there is minimal movement if you have an accident the energy created is transmitted to the seat and not to the child. When installing the car seat it’s difficult to get the seat tight until the invention of Seat-Tite.
Using Seat-Tite guarantees that your child’s car seat will be “secure” to your car. By using Seat-Tite there is minimal movement in the car seat which is the ultimate goal for safety. Seat-Tite is patented Worldwide.
The Seat-Tite guarantees that your child’s car seat will be locked securely in place in your car. The system includes the Easy-Tite Wedge which allows you to be able to easily separate the cushions to attach the latch belt to the car and the Seat-Tite device which will tighten the car seat into place in your vehicle.
Care Seat Safety Fact:
The latest research from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows 59 percent of car seats are not installed correctly.
And according to Safe Kids Worldwide, 80% of all children’s car seats are put in too loosely. Therefore in the event of an accident a child’s head or face can hit the back of the front seat causing a serious injury.
My Thoughts on Seat-Tite
We’ve all been there. Struggling to get a car seat installed. It is definitely one of those exercises that you do not want to have to go through often. And depending on the age of vehicle, style of seat, and type of locks; it can be quite difficult to get the car seat properly installed.
Seat-Tite removes most of the challenge when it comes to installing a car seat properly. The steps are simple enough to follow and it takes less than five minutes! Even having multiple children, this mom and gran can tell you that this is impressive. I know I have battled with getting car seats moved for more than 30 minutes before!
Steps for installing a car seat
Basically, the wedge (the clouds will part and angels will sing when you see how this simple tool works) separates the seat and holds the area open so you can insert the latching strap. Hello…every car made should come with one of these wedge things.
Then once your car seat is in place, the latching strap is again clipped in place using the wedge.
Finally, using the Seat-Tite, which according to my husband is a “come a long” system; the car seat is securely tightened into place. The ratchet makes it easy for anyone to securely install a car seat. It is really just that simple!
Created by and for grandparents
As a grandparent who doesn’t always have a car seat in my vehicle, this is a game changer. We have always had car seats that could be put in our vehicle if we had advanced knowledge of the need, but otherwise we would swap vehicles over moving a car seat. Now it is quick and easy to move or install a car seat.
We keep our Seat-Tite in the rear storage compartment so it is ready when needed. Its great to know that if one of the little ones want to go off with granma, worrying about their car seat isn’t a problem. As you can see, we are all about making child car seat safety a priority. Even our baby dolls are buckled!
Whether you are a soon to be, new or veteran parent, the Seat-Tite car seat kit should be in your vehicle. The comfort of knowing your car seats are properly installed is important. Accidents do happen, and no one wants a child injured because the car seat couldn’t be properly installed.
Let’s make child car seat safety a priority and protect those little lives.
