PARENT INFORMATION

Choosing the right child restraint can be confusing.... Remember

A child that is properly secured in an approved child restraint is less likely to be injured or killed in a car crash than one who is not.

Child restraints can be purchased from retail outlets or hired from some local councils, some maternity hospitals, community groups and from privately run rental companies.
Child restraints available in Australia must meet the Australian /New Zealand Standard 1754:2004 Child restraints for use in motor vehicles. The standard is one of the toughest child restraint standards in the world and child restraints manufactured to this Standard offer good protection in a crash.

A significant number of the restraints have been tested and assessed under the Child Restrain Evaluation Programme (CREP).

Find out more about the results of these tests and the guidelines you should follow when buying a child restraint in the safer child restraints brochure.

Remember

  • Using a restraint correctly greatly increases a child's safety during a crash.
  • Placing a child in a restraint that is designed for a larger/older child increases the risk of serious injury in a crash.
  • Ensure the restraint is installed correctly. See a restraint fitter if in any doubt.
  • Always use the top tether strap where required.
  • Teach your child to always keep both arms within the harness system of the child seat or the seat belt of the booster seat.
  • When using a seat belt with a booster, ensure the seat belt is correctly fitted over the child's shoulder.
  • Move your child into a forward-facing restraint only when they no longer fit into a rearward-facing restraint.
  • Move your child into a booster seat only when they no longer fit into a forward-facing restraint.
  • Always refer to the manufacturer's instructions.
