    Default Car Capsule fitting

    Do we install it? Does anyone know if it's meant to be fitted professionally? And if it is who on earth would fit it?

    So many questions flowing now sorry ;-D 3 weeks to go and I am extremely nervous!

    Thank you for helping!!

    I didn't have mine professionally fitted, I found the capsule particularly easy to fit securely so that it didn't wobble. If you do want to you can go to a registered fitting station. I'm in Vic and looked up a place on the VicRoads website with DS (RTA in NSW I believe?).

    We had ours professionally fitted. Ours was done by the red cross.

    I did so I knew how it was done so I could take it in and out etc. now I know I probably didn't need too. So simple!

    I always get our professionally fitted. Around 70% of DIY carseat installations are done incorrectly. For me the cost is worth it for peace of mind.

    Most baby stores have an instillation service

    We bought ours at Baby Bunting and paid $30 for their installation service. I feel it was worth it both for the convenience and the knowledge that it's done properly.

    We got ours fitted, and hubby took notes as many people think they have it in right but don't. He now does ours but has always said he was glad it got it professionally done that first time.
