The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently conducted a number of tests and studies regarding child car seat safety in vehicles and found that many parents are using the seats incorrectly by mistake, and putting their child in danger. In fact, one study found that over 70 percent of seats were either incorrectly installed, or an inappropriate size for the child.
The child seat is required to have 80 percent its base on the seat cushion, but in many vehicles this is nearly impossible. Truck seats can be particularly difficult for child seats, which is why the engineers at General Motors stepped their game up a notch and came up with an ingenious and practical idea for the 2015 GMC Canyon.
By simply pulling out the headrest and sliding it into slots under the seat cushion, the seat is wider, and the problem is solved.
