Fitting child car seats can be a little awkward if you are not used to it.
Not all seats will fit correctly in all cars, so it is vital to check that the seat you are thinking about buying will fit in your car before you buy it. Most good retailers will allow you to check this before you make a purchase.
Many retailers will also show you how to fit your seat.
Regardless of this, you will need (at some time) to fit and remove the seat yourself – so it is vital that you learn how to do this and always ensure that the seat is fitted correctly.
