Seattle Children’s offers appointment-based car seat checks at two locations (Seattle and Bellevue).

Join us for a free safety check with certified car seat technicians. Learn the proper way to install a car seat in your car and ensure that your child is properly restrained in the car seat, booster seat, or seat belt. New and expecting parents are welcome.

Car seat checks will follow COVID 19 safety protocols:

  • All eligible persons in the vehicle must wear a mask.
  • Drivers and passengers will exit the vehicle at the inspection station and practice social distancing guidelines.
