Protecting the Back Seat From Dirty Feet!

Little ones can make big messes! Rear facing is safer for your child, but it sure can make a mess of your vehicle seat. What can be done about the dirt and grime left by little feet? There are several options for covering the seat from repurposing household baby related items, or other basic items, to purchasing specialty mats.


Seat Protectors

One question we see a lot as CSPTs is, “how do I protect my vehicle’s seats when a car seat is installed?” It’s a valid question, especially for expectant parents who wonder what the car seat will do to a vehicle’s interior which was previously untouched by car seats and ground goldfish crackers.


Non-Approved Products for Car Seats

As a general rule, products sold separately from your child restraint should not be used because these products may affect the safety of your restraint in a crash. Even a seemingly minor change to your restraint could alter the way is designed and tested to perform in a crash, resulting in serious injury or death.
