If restraints are correctly installed and used, the risk of injury and death posed to children in car accidents is reduced by as much as 70 to 80 percent. It is now a legal requirement in the NT for all children up to the age of 7 years to travel in child car restraints appropriate for their age and development. 

Our Child Car Restraint Advisory, Checking and Fitting Service is an important part of our not for profit organisation. Unlike other "baby hire" organisations we are not a business but a community service. Funds raised from fees go back into producing programs and materials for parents and caregivers to create safer environments for Territory kids. At Kidsafe NT the safety of the child is paramount. Our Type 1 Fitters are highly trained and accredited professionals. A recent Kidsafe NT customer survey has concluded that 100% of our customers rate our car restraint fitting service as 10/10!  We are so proud of this result and pride ourselves on our high levels of customer care.
 
Further information on each of the above service areas can be found below. To make a booking or enquiry regarding child car restraint fitting call ph: 8941 8234.

Kidsafe NT has a range of quality, well-priced child restraints including the latest Safe n Sound models and Baby Love.

We also offer advice on purchasing, in particular which models will fit best in certain vehicles and for those with multiple child restraints.

Credit card facilities are available. All child restraints purchased through Kidsafe NT have the option of being installed by our Staff when collected from our premises.

For parents and caregivers who prefer not to purchase a restraint or who may only need one temporarily, Kidsafe NT also offers the option of a hire service with concessions available for low income earners to ensure safety is affordable for all.

Child Car Restraint Fitting & Checking Service

Kidsafe offers this cost effective service for those who are unsure about how to fit their child's car seat or those that just want to check that they have fitted their seat correctly. It is recommended to have the restraint checked by our qualified fitters.

The fitting service provides a comprehensive overview of how the restraint you have purchased works, how you use and adjust the restraint for your child; it is then installed into your vehicle and each customer is provided with a paper record of what the fitter has completed.

The fitting and checking service is available at the Kidsafe NT Centre at 1/9 Charlton Court, Woolner NT 0820.
