*Eligibility Requirements include:

All children under 13 should be properly secured in the back seat!

Alaska Law requires children less than one year, or children older than one year but less than 20 pounds to be secured in a rear-facing car seat. 


1-4 Years 

Alaska Law requires children one to four years old weighing over 20 pounds to be properly secured in an appropriate child restraint. 

*Keep your child in a a 5 point harness forward-facing car seat unti lthe top height and weight limit allowed by the car seat. 


4-7 Years

Once your child outgrows the forward-facing car seat it's time for a booster seat with a shoulder-lap seat belt.
