In brief: Have it checked

Many towns have car seat checks offered by local safety officials or at the local police station.
Your car seat needs to fit very securely into your car, it should be very hard to move it once it's installed. It must be properly installed to fully protect the baby.

In brief: Www.seatcheck.org

If after reading the car seat manual and your car's owner manual you're not sure that your car seat is installed properly you can always have an expert check it out.
Usually there's a hospital or fire station near by where someone can check the installation and go over how to secure your baby in the seat. Call 1-866-seat-check or go to www.Seatcheck.Org to find a location near you.
