Baby Zone is The Illawarra's Safety Advisory Centre. We realize the importance of car seat safety and understand that a child's safety in a vehicle is heavily reliant on 2 main factors. One is having the correct car seat for your child's weight and size. This is determined by referring to the car seat manufactures ratings and ensuring it is Australian Standards approved. The second is ensuring the car seat or capsule is correctly installed.
According to surveys conducted over 90 percent of car seats and capsules installed by parents themselves are installed incorrectly. This can result in the child or baby being less safe than not being in a car seat or capsule at all. As a result of these alarming numbers of unsafe car seat installations being carried out by individuals many Hospitals across Australia are now requested proof that a car seat or capsule has been installed professionally by an Accredited Car seat installer before releasing woman from Hospital.
Accredited car seat installers have to have completed a course designed and approved by the RTA. Baby Zone have 6 accredited car seat installers on site 7 days a week. The crew of Baby Zone car seat installers have fitted thousands of seats and capsules over the years. With every fitting Baby Zone issue a signed Certificate of Installation and a free demonstration of how to use your car seat or capsule. Baby Zone is able to fit car seats and capsules 7 days a week for a small fee of $30. Anchor bolts, extension straps and gated buckles if required will be at an extra cost.
