#CarseatFullstop is one of the leading sources of information on car seats and car seat best practice in South Africa. We provide a safe non-judgemental space for parents to seek answers to keep their children safe. We only recommend car seats we believe are 100% safe for our children. #CarseatFullstop will never promote a seat that has any marks against it on safety grounds on any platform.

#CarseatFullstop began because I didn’t want to be the mom that shakes her head, tuts and moves on with my life anymore. I did the research and the list of things that can happen is horrifying. Car seats save lives. Not using a car seat puts your child, your baby, and everybody else in the car at risk. I partner with other parents, sharing what I know to support them… And they in turn share what they learn… #CarseatFullstop is essentially a large group of parents just like those we are trying to reach… We didn’t know how many things we were getting wrong… And now that we do, we want to help others.

Join our Facebook Group to ask any questions you may have and get answers from the leading experts on car seats in South Africa. Follow our Facebook page or our Instagram or Twitter accounts for content and news on car seat best practice in South Africa and around the world.

Mandy on Sharing

The call to action for the #CarseatFullstop initiative is to share the wealth of knowledge and information we produce as far and wide as possible. Don’t let someone you know make a poor decision, when the simple click of a button could change their behaviour.

You have the power to save a little life. One share, seen by one person, who straps in one child, saves a life.

    Hi,
    The contact page for http://www.carseatfullstop.co.za doesn’t seem to be working.

    I would like to let you know about the German car seat tests. They are highly regarded and very useful.

    Here is the link (unfortunately in German but still the only serious test around): https://www.adac.de/infotestrat/tests/kindersicherung/kindersitz-test/default.aspx?ComponentId=29903&SourcePageId=31900

    There is also a Swedish test which I didn’t find very helpful (https://ntf.se/konsumentupplysning/marknadsoversikter/bilbarnstolar/)

    You can also check actual vehicle safety when purchasing a car. The NCAP test specifically tests child safety. The results can be found here: https://www.euroncap.com/en

    Hope this can be of some use to you,
    Nicola
