Car seats & child restraints keep kids safe. They’re compulsory in NZ for all children under 7 years old. But they can be confusing to install, especially as every car is different. Get yours checked and get advice and support from a registered child restraint technician at a free monthly child restraint clinic.
The best type of child restraint to be used depends on the age, height and weight of your child.
