    Share-able memes (pictorials/snapshots)

    Many people respond well to a quick snapshot or pictorial of how to do/not do something. How about a library of shareable ones here?

    Please don't modify any of the below in any way but feel free to copy and share. Add yours - one per post, by request of Admin.

    Please note for these ones specifically they are Canadian but many will apply south of the border as well.

    Good belt fit on an adult driver (or passenger really):

    Good belt fit versus bad belt fit (the 'good' is in a Turbo, the 'bad' is in an AO clone in booster mode):

    Proper positioning of the chest clip - not a belly clip!

    How to determine if the 1" of hard shell is remaining on a rear-facing restraint (the 1" rule), and other ways a seat is outgrown.

    Re: Share-able memes (pictorials/snapshots)

    I can't see any of the pics from Pixelated. Is it because I am mobile or are they gone? They would be super helpful!

    Please ignore typos, I'm mobile.

    Hmm, the pictures are all visible for me using a laptop and Firefox browser, so maybe it is that you're mobile.
