I actually had the traffic safety officer in the town where DH works install Maggie's car seat base. We had them do it when I was about 32 weeks due to my being at risk to deliver early. We haven't touched the base since then, even when it has been in the way. When we move Maggie into a convertable seat, we will have the same thing done. DH watched them do it and knows how if he has too, but we both feel better knowing somebody who is well-trained installed Maggie's seat.
They also recommend you bring it to be inspected when the baby is in it.
Besides traffic safety officers (which probably don't exist in most small towns- I know mine doesn't have one), you can have it done -sometimes- by regular police officers who have had the training, at some children's stores, by AAA, and by the SAFE KIDS campaign, when the hold free inspections. Call your local hospital- they should definitely be able to tell you where to get it done.
