Car Seat Checks

COVID-19 Update

Seattle Children’s is now offering appointment-based car seat checks. See below for dates and registration information. Free virtual car seat check appointments and virtual car seat classes are also being offered. See below for details. 

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

Car seat checks are by appointment only. 

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.
