4 Safety Tips Most Parents Forget

According to Safe Kids Worldwide, many parents don't know about the top tether anchor on their child's car seat, and don't realize their child is not fully protected. In a 2016 study, 64 percent of front-facing child seats didn't have the top tether attached.

This is a serious issue—when the top tether is anchored, the child seat will stay firmly connected during a crash. Without it, the seat can pitch forward, often resulting in the child striking their head on the back of the front seats.

Most top tether anchors are located on the back of the rear seat, though in some vehicle models they may be on the ceiling behind the seat.

While top tethers are an important safety issue, they are not the only one frequently overlooked.
