The Car Seat Finder is an easy-to-use tool that helps you find the right car seat for your child. Just fill out your child’s age, height and weight above, and you’ll be provided car seat types that fit your child. Make sure you're familiar with the four types of car seats and NHTSA’s recommendations for choosing the right type of seat for your child.

Older Kids Need the Right Seat, Too

For their safety, many kids 8 to 12 years old still need to use a booster seat. Make sure they ride in a booster seat until they outgrow the size limits of their booster, or until they are big enough for an adult seat belt to fit them properly. A properly fitting seat belt means:

  • The shoulder belt lies snugly across the shoulder and chest, not crossing the neck or face.
  • The lap belt lies snugly across the upper thighs, not the stomach.

Make sure your child is buckled up properly on every trip and remember to keep them in the back seat at least through age 12. Learn more about the proper fit.

If you love your kids enough to relearn math for them, then you've come to the right place to make sure they're in the right seat.
