How to Secure Your Child with CARES on Airplanes

  1. Seat your child in the airplane seat he or she will occupy.
  2. Lower the tray table behind your child’s seat.
  3. Slide the RED LOOP of the CARES restraint over the seat back, adjust the height of the RED LOOP so it is just above your child’s shoulders, and tighten it.  Then close the tray table covering the Red Loop.
  4. Place the BLACK SHOULDER STRAPS over your child’s shoulders and slide the buckle and connecter ends of the regular airplane seat belt through the loops at the bottom of the BLACK SHOULDER STRAPS.
  5. Buckle the seat belt and pull it snugly across your child’s lap as you normally would do – and then buckle the chest clip and snug down the Shoulder Straps.
  6. Your child is now safely buckled for taxiing, take off, landing and whenever during flight the Captain turns on the ‘fasten seat belt’ sign.  AmSafe joins the FAA and the airlines in recommending that you keep your seat belt and your child’s CARES fastened at all times when in flight.
