frequently asked questions

what is involved in an inspection?

During an inspection, we will:

  • Discuss the current installation you drive-in with
  • Remove and re-install the car seat, if necessary
  • Discuss how to get a proper install every time, so you can feel confident installing seats
  • Discuss best practices around car safety for children – are there hazards in your car you’re unaware of?

how long does it take?

An inspection can take between 45 minutes to 2+ hours depending on complexity.

what if I’m not strong like a firefighter?

It’s a common misconception that you need to be a large and muscular to install a car seat. Holly is 5’1″ and can assure you, small people can, too!

do you charge a fee?

Appointments are by-donation.

where do we meet up?

We ask that you meet us somewhere that is convenient for our families so we’re not away for too long while volunteering. This is often a community space close to home, or sometimes our driveway.

We do not travel for seat checks.

what should I bring?

To ensure an optimal installation, please bring with you:

  • A manual for your car seat
  • A manual for your vehicle
  • If possible, the occupant(s) of the car seat(s) so we can ensure the harness is correctly adjusted
