We do our own... I would be at the installation place like once a week... we have a minivan and are forever taking the seats out to fit bigger things in the car.. or having to swap seats around.
I just make sure its in good and tight and when wiggled it doesn't go anywhere

I'm worried now I've read this. We paid $50 to get the seat fitted at Kidsafe house, and our seat is definitely not immovable. There are several inches of movement either side. The lady who fitted it said that is normal and that there needs to be a little movement in case of impact, so that the seat does not take all the impact. She also told us to make sure that the belt we tighten when putting bub in the seat (not the harness, the top belt that you tighten as the last step when doing up the seat) should not be completely tight, but just pulled enough so there is no slack but it is still reasonably loose. Does anyone know if this is right? From what PPs have said I now suspect the seat is not fitted correctly

I haven't read this thread BUT... My brother is a Mechanic and he is trained to do it, as are most Mechanics he knows. Next time you are getting a service ask if they will do it for you.

We had ours done for free through QLD ambos the very first time. They were very thorough and taught us how to do it again ourselves.

Well I am someone that frequently moved seats between vehicles, so had to fit them myself.
