Fox 8 House Calls: Car Seat Safety for Infants and Children

The 5-Step Test ©SafetyBeltSafe USA

The 5-Step Test is a simple way to see if the vehicle's adult-size seat belt fits the child properly.
  1. Does the child sit all the way back against the vehicle seat?
  2. Do the child’s knees bend comfortably at the edge of the vehicle seat?
  3. Does the belt cross the shoulder between the neck and arm?
  4. Is the lap belt as low as possible, touching the thighs?
  5. Can the child stay seated like this for the whole trip? 
If you answer  “no” to any of these questions, your child STILL needs a booster seat to make both the shoulder belt and the lap belt fit right and to keep them safest.
