  • Car Seat Manual- every new car seat comes with an instruction manual that explains how to use and install your car seat.  Do not have a manual?  Manuals can be found on manufacturers’ websites, and often by googling the car seat “brand, model seat and the word manual.” 
  • Car Seat Manufacturer Customer Service- manufacturer phone numbers are listed on the car seat labels of every car seat. 
  • Car Seat Manufacturer Website- car seat manufacturers post PDF's of product manuals and many have user-friendly videos on their website to learn how to use their products. 
  • Youtube Channels- many car seat manufacturers have youtube channels to post their product  usage/installation videos. 
  • ​​Vehicle Owners Manuals- every vehicle owner's manual will have installation instructions in the manual.  Look up 'car seat' or 'child safety seat' or 'child safety restraint' in the index for more information.
