Learn how to install a forward facing convertible child safety car seat in this free video on child safety seats.
We are going to do demonstrate now the proper installation of a forward facing convertible seat. We have already routed the seat belt through into the forward facing belt position here rear facing forward facing we moved our passenger seat forward so it is out of our way. Next thing we are going to do next put the foot on the bottom of the seat down here. She is referring to this right here which folds up or rear facing when it is down or forward facing. Next thing we are going to do is switch the vehicle seatbelt this is a General Motors product like a Ford product in most imported cars if you pull it all the way out and release it, if you listen you could here that ratcheting sound it is now in a locking position that is done for safety seats. Next thing I'm going to do is put my weight into the seat and by doing this I'm compressing the child safety seat in the vehicle so usually you are going to pull, okay I'm going to pull on the shoulder portion of the belt right here, rocking the seat as I'm doing that helps me get more through. Judy is pulling on that end of the belt okay and then when I release and come out of the seat we check it at the belt path for side to side movement. There is nothing it doesn't move at all. Again that is a proper way to install a forward facing convertible child seat.
