Misunderstandings in the use of child car safety seats

There are four mistakes in the use of child car safety seats

Use of child car safety seat 1. Ride facing forward too early

Children must ride backwards before they are under one year old and weigh less than 9 kg, because once an accident occurs, the hardest back of the child's body will better alleviate the impact than other parts. When a child has reached the age of one year and weighs more than 9 kg, the two conditions must be met at the same time.

The child car safety seat is used 2. The upper strap is not fixed on the corresponding anchor point of the car

Some child safety seats are equipped with a pull up belt. In case of such a child seat, you must fix the pull up belt on the corresponding anchor point in the vehicle. In case of an accident, the pull up belt can prevent the child seat from turning over.

Use of child car safety seat 3. The safety belt on the child is too loose

After fastening the safety belt for children, check again. If you can easily insert your finger into the gap between the safety belt that binds children and children, it means that the safety belt is not fastened.

Use of child car safety seat 4. Failure to see the instructions and signs

Some parents did not operate the child seat according to the instructions or signs when using the child seat, which resulted in the seat not being fixed firmly or completely unrestrained. In case of an accident, the child seat could not play a corresponding role.

The safety seat should be in close contact with the child

After the safety seat is installed, the contact with children needs to be compact: firmly install the car child seat so that its left and right movement does not exceed 2.5 cm.

When adjusting the shoulder belt, it should be noted that the chest clip is parallel to the armpit, the crotch belt is just pressed on the crotch of the child, the shoulder belt is close to the shoulder, two fingers can not pinch out the excess shoulder belt, and nothing should be placed on the back. When facing backward, the shoulder strap is slightly lower or flat than the shoulder, while when facing forward, the shoulder strap is flat or slightly higher than the shoulder.

The longer you sit in a rear facing seat, the better

Newborn babies under 1 year old must use rear facing safety seats, and it is recommended that they should use this type of product when they are 1 to 3 years old (weight less than 25kg). Don't rush your child to use the forward facing safety seat. For the safety of your child, the longer you sit in the opposite direction within the applicable range of the seat, the better. Some European brands sit in reverse seats until they are 4 years old. "

Children aged 4 to 7 (weighing less than 36kg) need to use forward facing safety seats, preferably with a five point harness.

Children aged 8 to 12 or older can use booster seats in addition to safety seats when riding, until they are old enough to use adult seat belts correctly.

The above are the "four major mistakes in the use of child car seats". I hope parents pay more attention to the use of child seats and correctly install car seats. In addition, thanksgiving seats should remind parents that seat belts are not safe for children! The safety belt is specially designed for adults. Compared with short children, it is just pressed on the neck. The neck is the carotid artery and trachea. When an accident occurs, it can not protect children, but it will endanger their lives.
