Upcoming ‘Check it Fits’ Service dates in County Donegal.


Since October 2013, the RSA’s ‘Check it Fits’ Service has checked over 4,000 child car seats and restraints in Ireland. Of these, 83% required some adjustment. Worryingly, 79% of seats required a major adjustment, of which 3% were deemed not fit for purpose and condemned, meaning they could have caused injury or even death in the event of a collision.


The ‘Check it Fits’ Service is a full-time, nationwide, free expert service which aims to put parent’s, grandparent’s and guardian’s minds at ease that their child’s car seat is safely and securely fitted in their car. The service is quick, it’s easy, it’s free and will be in Donegal, where our experts will advise on how to fix any problem, demonstrate how to fit the restraint correctly and answer any queries participants might have.


This free service will be visiting the following locations in Donegal in February 2015:

We have included some posters which may be useful for promoting the ‘Check it Fits’ Service in your workplace and local community also.
