Child Passenger Safety Week Day 2 – Chest Clip Location (GIVEAWAY)

Car Seat Chest Clip

Congrats to winners –

Entry #1124 – Kristen T.

Entry #1211 – Erica H.

It’s day 2 of Child Passenger Safety Week and today is all about the car seat chest clip. That’s right, that big closure that is usually the last thing that you do when you put your child in the seat. It seems like a no-brainer but many people don’t know that there is a right and a wrong place to put that chest clip. As a matter of fact, there is only one right place for that chest clip and that is AT THE ARM PIT LEVEL. The chest clip should always be on the child’s chest at the arm pit level.

Since many parents are positioning those chest clips in the wrong place, we are going to help spread the word with a contest/giveaway and photos today. Yes, we want full participation with this giveaway! We want everyone to take a photo of their child in their car seat with the chest clip at arm pit level and then share it. Above is a photo we took but you do not have to add text directly on the photo like we did. (You can explain the photo in your description depending on where you post it. See rules below.)

(UPDATE: Here is a video we just filmed today with how I get my toddlers and kids to put the chest clip in the proper position)


TWO lucky participants will win a Britax G3 Convertible Car Seat of their choice. This giveaway is open to US residents only!
