February Car Seat Clinic – Saturday, February 1st 2014

Posted on January 21, 2014

Its time to bundle up for the outdoors. We are having our winter Car Seat Clinic, Saturday, February 1st 2014!  ITS FREE!

This is our first Car Seat Clinic of the New Year and we couldn’t be more excited!

As with all our clinics, this one will be held in the front parking lot of our Oakville location, so make sure you are dressed for the weather.  If it is too cold outside come into the store and shop around while your seat gets installed.  Unlike coming into the store during the week for a car seat install, our clinics do not require an appointment.  This means car seats get installed on a first-come first-serve basis.  Installs can sometimes take up to 30 minutes however we do not know how long it was actually be until the installer beings doing the install.  Each vehicle is designed different, as well as each car seat.  There is no “magic car seat formula” so we can’t say exactly how long it will take.  We can only give the best approximation of time.

All of our car seat clinics are held in conjunction with the Child Passenger Safety Association of Canada (CPSAC) as well as with our own car seat technicians.  James Fitzpatrick, Child Passenger Safety Advocate, will be available to install your seat and to answer all of your car seat related questions or concerns.

The clinic will run from 11:00am-2:00pm and will be held at our Oakville/Mississauga location, at Hyde Park Mall – 2501 Hyde Park Gate, Unit 1D — next door to Carter’s/OshKosh.



Come into the store to fill out all the necessary paperwork for the car seat clinic prior to getting your seat installed.  The paperwork only takes a few minutes to fill out. 

But don’t come empty handed! You should know the age, weight and height of the child before hand (if the seat isn’t for an unborn child) and if possible bring the child with you so the installer can adjust the straps to the correct height. 

Also make sure to come with everything needed for the install, such as the instruction manual, the base and any other “odds & ends” that are in the box.  (Sometimes those “odds & ends” are what stands in the way of a correct installation!)
