Buckle Up Baby

BuckleUpBaby

The list of Buckle Up Baby Car Seat Clinics has been posted for the 2015 calendar year. If you are expecting a new baby or have a child transitioning from a bucket seat to a rear facing car seat, a rear facing to a forward facing, a forward facing to a booster seat, then consider making an appointment to have the installation verified by the professionals.

Clinics are open to the general public, but require appointments made in advance. Call 519-666-3227 to book an appointment.
