Where can I get my new carseat installed?

So my DD has finally outgrown her infant seat. I bought a cute new convertible one at Target. It's got so many different straps and buckles and I'm fairly sure the instruction book was written by Stephen King, and I'm not confident that I can properly install it myself. Anyone know where I can go to get it done so it's safe for my LO?

  • Also the fire department in your town can do it. They have this really cool seat belt tightener that makes it so those seats can't move a millimeter!!
