Handle Position in the Car

Posted in: Blog, Rear-Facing Seats

Many parents think that the handle on an infant seat always has to be back when the carrier is in the car. This is not true! Many carriers allow – and some even require – that the handle be in other positions when riding in the car.

The table below lists the authorized handle positions for travel in the car for current and recently discontinued infant carriers. Please always double check the manual to your child’s seat. If the box is GREEN, this means you may use the handle in that position. If the box is gray, it means this car seat is no longer made. Click here for a printable version of the table.
