and the winner is...


Safercarseats is dedicated to helping parents unlock the world of car seats.  We're parents too and we know how challenging it can be to negotiate the rules, recommendations and the ins&outs of car seat safety.

To celebrate the introduction of the new restraint laws in NZ we're pleased to offer our very first giveaway....

we're very pleased to announce the winner of the phil&teds cocoon travelfix booster.


CONGRATULATIONS ANETTA SMITH OF WAIHI

thanks everyone for getting on board to help share and spread the word about car seat safety . The new law coming into effect on November the 1st means that you will legally be required to keep your child in an appropriate restraint until their 7th birthday.  but dont forget  the bigger picture is that research both locally and internationally shows that children are much safer in a restraint until they are 148cm.

So how do you know if your child still needs to use a booster? Here's 5-step booster seat test

Your child does not require a booster seat if you can answer YES to ALL of the following questions:

  1. Do they sit all the way back in the vehicle seat?
  2. Do their knees bend at the edge of the vehicle seat?
  3. Does the adult safety belt cross the shoulder between the neck and the arm?
  4. Is the lap belt as low as possible, touching the thighs?
  5. Can they stay seated like this for the whole trip?
