  • Maybe you dont have it positioned right.. Try taking it to the POlice station they can install it for you.. And if not then maybe you should get a new car seat.. How old is your baby?? But its not safe at all if her car seat is tipping when you drive.. You should ck that out ASAP.. Good Luck!!

  • I agree with the first poster, take it to a local police station and have them check it out for you,

  • google certified carseat installation technician and your city name and there should be one at the hosptial, police department or fire station. Are you using latch or seatbelt? It may be that your seatbelt needs a locking clip.

  • The fire station here does carsear installation for free, so I would imagine you could find someone near you that offers the same services. Our fire station actually offers brand new carseats for $20 donations as well.

  • Even if you think its installed correctly, statistics show that they usually aren't. Go here and find a place near you and have it inspected immediately. If it's tipping over thats seriously dangerous.

  • Thats what I would do. I am a licenced car seat inspecter and I know that when i do car seats people always have something wrong with them even if they dont think so. Whether its just little things like haveing the straps to loose or big things like having a recalled car seat. I would go to your local police department and have them look at it.

  • If in fact you do have it installed correctly it may be as simple as you need a locking clip to hold it tight.
