Child Restraint Manufacturers’ Instructions with Summaries (CRMIS) is a compilation of complete manufacturers’ instructions for all child restraints made in 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. Sample summary

Color pictorial is a 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 of 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. Sample pictorial
