Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) Resources
At Dorel Juvenile Group, we are dedicated to helping provide a safer world for children.
As the leading manufacturer of children's car seats, we place a special focus on keeping our most precious cargo safe while they travel. Many of our employees have been nationally certified as Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPSTs). CPSTs help parents by providing instructions and safety information on the proper installation and use of car seats to parents and caregivers. We are happy to provide this dedicated page that gathers together information and resources for the use of both the CPSTs in our community and those across the United States who are helping make the roads safer for all.
Dorel Technical Center for Child Safety: Opened in September, 2010, the Dorel Technical Center for Child Safety is a one-of-a-kind facility that features specialized research and design operations with the sole purpose of helping us create the safest car seats possible. It was with the help of this center that we are able to bring ground-breaking safety technologies, such as Air Protect and GCell HX, to life.

Product FAQs: As the largest manufacturer of child restraint systems, our customer service reps respond to many concerned parents every day with advice and insights on the proper use and installation of car seats. We've gathered the top questions in one place as a handy resource.
Car Seat Installation Videos: Getting a car seat installed correctly is easier with a visual to follow while going through each step. We have several in-depth looks at the installation process for some of our top seats available here and they're all designed to be mobile friendly so there's no need to run from computer to car during the process.
Car Seat & Travel Safety Videos: Sometimes a video can be worth a thousand words. These helpful guides concentrate on all aspects of car seat and travel safety and are a useful resource for parents and CPST's alike.
Car Seat Registration: Registering a car seat ensures that parents will be the first to know about any news that affects their particular model. Be sure to encourage parents to take this simple, but important step for any new car seat they purchase.
Car Seat Instruction Manuals: Need help getting the correct instruction manual for a Dorel Juvenile Child Restraint System? We provide a simple search to link you up to the correct set of instructions for each of our car seats. These are each in PDF format and can be printed out via your web browser.

Safety Notices: At Dorel Juvenile Group, safety is our top priority. That's why we've compiled a comprehensive listing of our products that may require additional repairs, modifications or replacement after the manufacturing process. In most cases, a simple replacement part is all that's needed to improve a product's performance.
Made in the USA: We're proud of all of our quality products, but here in the U.S. division of Dorel Juvenile Group we have a special soft spot for those products made and assembled right here in our Columbus, Indiana factory.
