Car Seat

How snug should the harness be on my child?
A good rule of thumb is to make your child’s harness as snug as your seatbelt is on you. You don’t want it so tight where it’s uncomfortable, but it needs to be snug in order to eliminate a child’s movement during a crash. Safety experts recommend using the “pinch test.” Make sure you can’t “pinch” any of the fabric up at the shoulder, and it’s tight enough.
