Car Seat Checks

Did you know that 4 out of 5 car seats are installed improperly? Motor vehicle car crashes are the number one cause of death and injury for children and young adults. In an effort to assist parents and children in making vehicle travel safer, the Lino Lakes Public Safety Department has trained "Child Safety Seat Technicians."

The Lino Lakes Police Department provides FREE car seat checks. During the check, a certified car seat technician will demonstrate how to properly install your car seat.  Participants will also have the opportunity to install their car seat with our technician so they can feel confident installing seats at home, or moving them from one vehicle to another.

About the Appointment:

  • Dates vary each month. Appointments are required.
  • Appointments take approximately 30 minutes.
  • Participant should plan to bring their car seat(s) and child/children with them. This allows technicians time to make sure the car seat is appropriate for the child's height and weight, and in the proper position.
  • If possible, bring the owner's manual for both your vehicle and car seat, as they can help determine the ideal placement in a vehicle and outline the manufacturer's instructions.
  • If you are expecting, please make an appointment one to two months prior to your due date.
