The Child Passenger Safety Reference Manual
Reference and Teaching Guide This guide, used in the eight-hour SafetyBeltSafe U.S.A. Educator Workshop, contains curricula for health professionals, statistics, information on laws and regulations, sample speech outlines, resource lists, up-to-date technical information, and guides for safety seat distribution program development, special needs transport, and early childhood programs.
USB with Child Restraint Manufacturers’ Instructions and Summaries (see next item for details). Order #45-49. $50 + shipping/handling (see chart).
Child Restraint Manufacturers’ Instructions with Summaries on USB (#450)
This is a compilation of complete manufacturers’ instructions for all child restraints made for the last 10 years, with summary sheets developed by SafetyBeltSafe U.S.A. Summaries for each seat include revised recommendations from manufacturers, minimum and maximum weights, first and last dates made, harness threading, LATCH information, belt path diagrams, identification photos, and more. The USB has summaries and manufacturer instructions for more than 400 child restraints, as well as manufacturer instructions for 36 special needs child restraints. This is an indispensable tool for Technicians, as the majority of caregivers do not bring instructions with them when having their child restraints inspected.
Access to instructions received after this USB was produced is available by Membership/Subscription.
Continuing education credits offered with this subscription/membership and completed quiz.
|$100||Access to printable Recall List and new instructions to supplement the current USB of Child Restraint Manufacturers’ Instructions (see below)|
|$135||All of the above plus the USB of Child Restraint Manufacturers’ Instructions and one subscription to Safe Ride News*|
Color Pictorial Guide to Safety Seats (#50)
This collection of color photos makes it easier to identify child restraints. The photographs are organized by type of safety seat, then alphabetically by manufacturer, and then by appearance. If the manufacturer is known, scroll down to those models. If not, scroll to view all the safety seats of that type. To help with identification, each photo has a caption with the manufacturer, model name, and years when the product was first made and discontinued.

Revised every time there is a new recall, the SafetyBeltSafeU.S.A.. list is the most comprehensive recall list available. In addition to official recalls, it includes information about other replacement parts provided voluntarily by manufacturers. Safety seats without a recall also are listed, which prevents the dangerous error of assuming there is no recall if the correct name of the seat is not recognized.
