Baby Capsule Hire

Baby Capsule Hire Graphic

Baby safety capsules are the safest way for your baby to travel in a motor vehicle. Council has a limited number of baby safety capsules available for hire to Huon Valley residents on a short term (six month maximum) basis.
The capsules are suitable for use with a lap-sash or lap-only seat belt in the front or back of most cars with forward-facing seats. They are to be used only in a rearward-facing position for a child weighing up to 9kg and with a length of up to 700mm.

To ensure safety it is recommended that capsules are fitted by a qualified service such as RACT Hobart Ph: 6213 2722.
WARNING: Child safety capsules are NOT suitable for seating positions where an air bag is fitted.

Cost
Six-month baby capsule hire - $96.50.
Bond - $20 (refundable upon return of baby capsule in a satisfactory condition)
