What is a car seat pinch test?

A pinch test is the best way to make sure a child is properly fitted inside his car seat.

How to do it?

After placing your child in his car seat and tightening the harness as you see proper, pinch the belt around the child’s shoulders. If you could grasp any fabric, that means that the harness is not tight enough. Accordingly, you will have to tighten the belts. In a pinch test you should not be able to grasp any material around a child’s collarbones.
