Find the Right Seat, Get Registered, and More!

It's Child Passenger Safety Week! We have a lot of new tools available to help you find the right seat for your child. We can also help you locate Child Passenger Safety events and certified Child Passenger Safety technicians who can help you check your car seat or install one the right way.
Find a Car Seat
It's easier now more than ever to find the right seat for your child. All you need is their birth date, weight, and height. Once entered, your information will provide you with car seat type results that fit your child according to NHTSA's best practice recommendations. Find your right seat here.
Car Seat Registration
When you register your car seat with the manufacturer, you'll be notified about any recalls that affect your car seat. It's easy to do through our tool: just select manufacturer and brand and we'll get you to where you need to go. Find the registration tool here.
Child Passenger Safety Techs and Events
Finding a certified tech or Child Passenger Safety event has never been easier. You can search by State or search by zip code to locate events and techs nearest you. Seat Check Saturday is a great chance to get your car seat checked out or installed the right way. Find a tech or event here.
Spanish Website
Everything on our Right Seat website is now available in Spanish. That means the Find a Car Seat and Registration tool, along with all our other resources, can be found en EspaƱol.
