Did you know that 9 out of 10 car seats are used incorrectly? Whether you are expecting your first baby or have a car full of kids, selecting and properly using a child safety seat can be a challenge.
The type of seat your child needs depends on multiple factors, including your child’s age, height, weight, and developmental needs. You may also need to take into consideration the type of vehicle you will be transporting your child in, and the safety needs of other passengers.
Let St. Luke’s help take the stress out of correctly installing a safety seat for your treasured cargo. We offer monthly car seat check-up events. At these events, a St. Luke's certified child passenger safety technician will evaluate your car seat for proper installation, use, and recall status, and answer any questions you may have regarding your child’s safety in the car.
Car seat checks are offered by appointment only. We no longer offer drive-up services.
Call (208) 814-7640. If you cannot find dates, times, or locations that will work with your schedule, please check the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website to find another car seat inspection location.
Bring your car seat, vehicle, and instruction manuals for both. Bring your child, if possible. Be prepared for you and your child to spend some time outside your vehicle at the check; please dress appropriately for the weather.
We ask that adults wear a mask. If you or any member of your family have any symptoms of COVID-19 or are feeling ill, please reschedule your appointment.
