For more than 60 years, Graco has provided innovative baby products to millions of families.
Graco features a full line of children's products which offer thoughtful details, making a big difference while meeting or exceeding the righteous safety standards that are so important to keeping children safe and protected. With four generations of expertise, you can trust that every Graco product is designed with you and your children's well-being in mind. Every Graco product must pass stringent safety standards and rigorous testing. They strive to exceed government and industry standards in testing for safety, reliability and longevity.
Being a parent means being prepared, especially when it comes to keeping your child safe. Graco car seats are designed to keep baby safe from the very first car ride. Here are a few of the ways Graco keeps safety at the forefront when designing their car seats:
Engineering - Graco has developed a series of testing protocols to improve the safety of their car seats known as SafeSeatEngineering. All Graco car seats are engineered and crash tested to meet or exceed US standard FMVSS.
Side Impact Testing - While there is no government standard on side impact testing, Graco Engineers have developed a protocol to simulate side-impact crash forces. All current Graco car seats and high back boosters have been tested to this standard.
2X Car Seat Standard - Graco has developed a structural test for all of our car seats that simulates a collision with twice the force of current federal standards for testing car seats. This test helps ensure the car seats are ready in the event of a high-speed or high-impact collision.
Extreme Car Interior Temperature - All current Graco car seats have been tested for structural integrity at both high and low temperatures. Because the interior temperature of your vehicle can vary significantly by season, it is important that the structural integrity of the car seat is maintained when subjected to extreme temperatures.
Graco's crash testing facility is one of the leading in the country for child restraint systems and is helping to set the standard for other facilities.
Graco wants to make the installation of your car seat as simple as possible. They have created step-by-step instructions and how-to videos (many of which can be found on our product pages) to walk you through the installation process. Lightweight and easy to use, Graco infant car seats and in-car bases allow for convenient use of the carrier interchangeably between multiple cars. We also offer intuitive features like seat belt lock off, level indicator, and angle adjustability to help make car seat installation easier.
Did you know your car seat expires? Graco stamps an expiration date into the bottom of each car seat so you know when it is time to replace it. Expiration dates can range anywhere from six to ten years or more depending on the car seat - so it's important to check your particular seat. Used or expired car seats can be dangerous, especially if you don't know the seat's history.
