Stop Wondering if that Child Car Seat is installed correctly

Stop wondering and find out if your child car seat is installed correctly

Free car seat inspections will be performed at Elliot Whittier Insurance on Saturday May 14th from 10Am - 2PM

We all know the feeling.  Looking back at the smiling cherub placed in your care, nestled in his or her carseat with you at the wheel.  Whether you are a mom or a dad, a grandparent or a caregiver, there’s that knawing concern in the back of your head – or perhaps in the pit of your stomach:  “Did I do my BEST job installing this car seat?”

Well … you can stop wondering if you get your carseat inspected by someone who is certified to perform just such an inspection.  Often you can get this done at your local police station, but it often depends on if that certified officer is on duty at a time that’s convenient for you. 

OR, you can stop by on Saturday, May 14th, between the hours of 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM to the Elliot Whittier Insurance Winthrop office, at 12 Revere Street, Winthrop (right across the street from Winthrop Marketplace)  At this time and for the 4th year in a row, we are pleased to sponsor FREE car seat inspections thanks to Officer Steven Acone and the Winthrop Police Department.  Periodically, Officer Acone attends a 40 hour course, where he retains certification for the Car Seat Inspections.

I’ve personally witnessed Officer Acone re-install dozens of car seats, many of them seemingly well installed.  I think I saw only one that did not need his adjustment!  Once Officer Acone gets done tightening the belts and adjusting the harnesses, you won’t believe how immovable that car seat can become!

These will be conducted on a first-come/first-served basis.  You can assure your place by registering here.  We will also have goodies for the kids.   Questions?  Call Chris Millerick 857-816-4935.  See you then!

  1. UPDATE: Car seat inspections went well, even though it was particularly cold out this past Saturday. Officer Acone was surprised to see 2 car seats that needed absolutely NO adjustments, all the others needed minor-to-major readjustments!

    Just have to say it really is gratifying to be able to provide peace-of-mind to all the parents, parents-to-be, and caregivers who come out for this!
