If you find yourself making some of these common errors, donít worry! Installing a child safety seat can be challenging, but there are lots of resources to help. Do your best to correct these errors on your own with the help of your child safety seat and vehicle manuals. If you are still unsure, consult a trained child passenger safety technician at a local car seat check point. This person can show you how to correct errors and achieve an optimal, secure installation.
