Did you know that 90% of Canadian car seats are installed improperly or misused?
Common errors include a missing top tether, an improperly positioned chest clip, and loose harness straps, not to mention children riding in seats that do not fit with their weight, height, and age.
The simple habit of a child wearing a winter coat within their car seat can render the seat ineffective.
The reality is that parents and caretakers love their children, but they don’t always know how to best protect them in a motor vehicle.
This is alarming to Graco Canada, the leading provider of Canadian car seats. Providing well‐engineered, quality car seats is meaningless if the seats are not installed and used correctly. That’s why Graco Canada is sponsoring the Canadian Walmart Car Seat Clinic Tour.
The tour will take place during August and September in the parking lots of select Walmart locations. CPSAC‐certified technicians will be on‐site to install car seats, verify existing car seat installations, and answer questions about car seat safety.
The technicians will check and install seats for all ages and stages and for any brand of car seat.
Two clinics are scheduled for Western Canada: Edmonton, AB (September 26) and Langley, BC (September 27). The event is free of charge.
Those interested can learn more and book an appointment at Gracobaby.ca/news and space is limited.
