Get your child’s car seat fitted correctly by the experts this Wednesday.

DO you have a child’s car seat fitted in the back of your car? Well chances are it’s not fitted properly.

Research from the Road Safety Authority (RSA) shows that as many as 4 out of 5 child car seats are incorrectly fitted nationwide.

You can get your child’s car seat checked when the ‘Check it Fits’ Service team of child car seat installation experts will check child car seats and restraints to ensure they are correctly fitted in SuperValu, Rock Street, Tralee on Wednesday, October 8 from 10am-5.30pm.

The ‘Check it Fits’ experts will advise on how to fix the problem, demonstrate how to fit the restraint correctly and answer any queries participants might have to avoid potential serious or fatal injury in the event of a collision.

The whole process shouldn’t take more than 10-15 minutes, is completely free of charge, and will give parents and guardians the peace of mind that their child is safe and secure in your car.

If a child car seat isn’t fitted correctly, it could lead to a serious or fatal injury in the event of a collision, and so incorrectly fitted child car seats are a significant cause for concern for parents, grandparents and guardians who travel with children.

Since October 2013, the RSA’s ‘Check it Fits’ Service has checked over 4,000 child car seats and restraints in Ireland. Of these, 83% required some adjustment. Worryingly, 79% of seats required a major adjustment, of which 3% were deemed not fit for purpose and condemned, meaning they could have caused injury or even death in the event of a collision.

The ‘Check it Fits’ service moves to SuperValu, Church Street, Castleisland, the following day, October 9 10.00am – 5.30pm.

The following week they return to Kerry to SuperValu, Holy Ground, Dingle on October 15
10.00am – 5.30pm and on October 16 at SuperValu, Convent Street, Listowel, 10am–5.30pm.
