It's important to note that when it comes to child seat law, you have the responsibility to make sure you're in line with it. The child seat law was introduced to the UK in 2006. It ensures youngsters are protected if you are unlucky enough to have an accident whilst on the road.
The law says that all children under 135cm tall need a car seat on all journeys, so it's best to start thinking about the right car seat before your little bundle of joy arrives.
Getting your child car seat fitted properly is essential. So why not take the guesswork out of it and let Halfords trained professionals fit it for you. We'll give you a demo so you feel comfortable doing it yourself.
