Winter Weather Policy: Safety Stop appointments may be rescheduled due to very low temperatures and/or impending or occurring inclement weather such as snow, sleet, hail or freezing rain. We will call all affected Safety Stop appointments no later than 3 hours prior to your scheduled Safety Stop appointment time. Everyone’s safety is very important to us. Thank you for your understanding when these circumstances occur.
An appointment is required for all Safety Stop services. Call Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm, 314.454.KIDS (5437) or 800.678.KIDS (5437), then press 3.*
Parents have three different options when they come to Safety Stop! A limited selection of helmets, car seats and home safety equipment is available for purchase at discounted prices as part of a Safety Stop appointment.
Parents bring their child, vehicle and car seat to Safety Stop and a certified child passenger safety technician will inspect the seat, check it for a correct fit to the child and show them how to install it properly. Click here for details about your upcoming car seat appointment.
Kids can bring their own helmet to Safety Stop where a trained helmet safety expert will check it for proper fit. Parents and their children will learn how to adjust the helmet themselves so they can continue this important safety practice at home. Click here for details about your upcoming helmet appointment.
