Plan ahead a bit and we will be there while you are finishing the paper work making car seat fitting in Melbourne simple and easy for your family.
A Car Seat Installer is someone who has completed the ACRI Car seat fitting course in Melbourne in person (not online) and is a current financial member of the ACRI (Australian Child Restraint Initiative).
Many parents do not realise that; just like a doctor, dentist or lawyer just because you have passed the exams, you still need to do a internship to gain the experience to install a car seat correctly; and to understand the issues parents face when using baby car seats.
For a Car seat installer, this takes an average of at least 400 installations before the car seat professional understands the issues at hand and can safely take a parent through the necessary steps to use the baby car seat and can fully explain about height markers.
These 400 car seat installations should be across a variety of cars, suv’s and hatchback cars as well as all of the car seat brands and car seat types. Any less, then the experience level is not sufficient.
The certified car seat fitter needs to be a current member of the ACRI so that they are kept up to date with the latest issues with regards to car seats/ child restraints.
It is not sufficient to have VACC or RACV membership as the training is not continually updated by the manufacturers. I have even seen instances where some member were not even aware that ISOFIX had been introduced (1 year after the release of the new standards) and were telling the parents that the seat they have just bought was illegal in Australia.
Next time someone says they are a professional car seat installer, ask them Are you an ACRI member and how many car seats have you installed. Should they fail either of these criteria look for another Professional Car seat installer.
In Melbourne Certified Car seat installation involves a number of different activities which help the parents understand the importance of car safety and the use of the child restraint
1- Car seat Safety Check. We ensure that your child restraint is approved for Australian use and the child restraint is less than 10 years old. Additionally we check for any issues such as fraying of the tether straps and / or the harness.
2 – Car seat Operation Check. The second step involves checking to ensure that the car seat is operating correctly and that there are no twisted straps. Where possible any issues are corrected.
3- Installation of car seat – use a gated buckle where needed
4- Verify operation of car seat, including loosening and tightening, adjust harness height etc
5- Demonstrate operation of car seat to you, including loosening and tightening, adjust harness height etc
6- Allow the carer to experience use and operation of car seat, including loosening and tightening, adjust harness height etc
7 – Answer all questions asked with a demonstration if needed.
That is what is involved in a certified car seat fitting in Melbourne
