Britax convertible car seats
As we've noted in some of our articles, all car seats that you see on the market have met federal child restraint safety standards, and no one car seat is deemed safer than the other. When NHTSA rates car seats on a 5 star scale, they are doing so based on ease of use in the following four categories:
Evaluation of instructions
Evaluation of labels
Vehicle Installation features
Securing the child
Anyone who has tried installing a car seat for the first time knows how daunting a task it can be, so this list is designed to make that task – and your life – that much easier!
