    TAMPA, FL, October 02, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Since 2002, Nissan's Snug Kids program has helped drivers choose and use child restraint systems (CRS) for maximum safety for their families. (1) In 2011, Nissan furthered that mission by participating in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) Vehicle-CRS Fit Program. Engineers known as Child Passenger Safety Technicians installed forward-facing, rear-facing and booster-style seats in every Nissan vehicle to ensure fit and function. (1) Nissan dealers in Tampa would be happy to help you figure out how CRS will work best for your kids.

There are a few tips Nissan and Ferman Nissan of Tampa would like to share:

-Help keep your CRS solidly in place against the seat bottom and back with a non-slip kitchen cabinet liner.
-Florida families can use a short piece of those ubiquitous foam pool noodles to stabilize an infant restraint and ensure that it's installed at the proper angle.
-To make sure the CRS is cinched into the vehicle as tightly as possible, have a second person push the CRS against the seat cushions while you tighten the straps.
-If the seat back is adjustable, recline it a bit before installing your CRS. Then move the seat to its upright position to ensure a stable fit.
-Check your installation by pushing side to side where the restraint belt goes. If it wiggles more than an inch, you need to tighten it even further.

Snug Kids can help you choose a child restraint that fits your Nissan and offer additional installation tips. (1) As always, when in doubt, check the owner's manual.
