The law states that all children under 150cms or 36kgs must use a child car seat appropriate to their weight and height. Since October 2013, the RSA’s ‘Check it Fits’ Service has checked over 21,000 child car seats and restraints in Ireland. Of those seats checked, 79{c710262f72a1b0e6a57c7266508ba7019eb1052d90bae344267f95b35e9c8f10} required a major adjustment, of which 3{c710262f72a1b0e6a57c7266508ba7019eb1052d90bae344267f95b35e9c8f10} were deemed not fit for purpose and condemned, meaning they could have caused injury or even death in the event of a collision.

The Check it Fits service is quick, it’s easy, it’s free. On the day experts will advise on how to fix any problem, demonstrate how to fit the restraint correctly and answer any queries participants might have. The experts aim to put parent’s, grandparent’s and guardian’s minds at ease that their child’s car seat is safely and securely fitted in their car.

If you have any questions or require more information on the service visit  They look forward to seeing you in Monaghan.

Please pass this information on to any friends, family members or any other relevant contacts that use child seats, to inform them of the upcoming visit to County Monaghan.

Don’t let your child be a statistic. Get your child car seat checked.
