Your child’s car seat is one of the most important purchases you’ll ever make. Here are just some of the things to consider before choosing one.
All child car seats manufactured in Canada must meet government safety standards, but they’re not all created equal. The Rainier is NCAP crash tested, the benchmark for assessing car seat performance in severe accident conditions. It offers the ultimate in car seat safety features, including a full steel frame and extra deep aluminum-reinforced side walls as well as energy absorbing (EPS) foam surrounding the head and body for complete side impact protection.
Proper installation is critical. Diono’s Rainier car seat features a unique SuperLATCH™ system that makes installation a breeze.
It’s a good idea to have your car seat checked by an expert to ensure that it’s properly installed. Look for car seat clinics in your area.
Car seats vary in size and just an extra inch or two can be a problem if you’ve got a growing family or a small vehicle. The Rainier‘s space-saving design means that you can fit two of its car seats and another passenger comfortably in the same row.
Some features add considerable value in terms of comfort, safety and durability. For example, the Rainer‘s aluminum-reinforced headrest has 12 height positions and a Safestop® energy-absorbing harness. Other thoughtful touches include extra-long leg support, multiple harness and buckle positions and an angled cup holder to keep drinks upright.
If you plan on moving the car seat between vehicles or doing any air travel, portability should be a consideration. The Rainier folds flat for easy transporting and is FAA certified, meaning it’s approved for use on airplanes.
TIP: For the safest ride, keep little ones in the rear-facing position until they reach the car seat’s height and weight restrictions. This position gives the best protection to the head, neck and spinal cord.
