Car Seat

My child’s car seat has a five-point harness. Where exactly do I place the harness clip?
Safety experts recommend using a seat with a five-point harness, which has five points of contact over the child’s hips and chest – the strongest parts of their body. The harness clip must be at the child’s armpit level. Many parents incorrectly put it on their child’s tummy. This can cause damage to internal organs during a crash.
