What is the proper recline angle for my rear-facing car seat?

Answer

When your car seat is installed in your vehicle and your child is secured in the car seat, the level lines on side of plastic shell must be level with the ground. Dorel testing has shown that the resulting angle leads to the best crash test performance, even for older and larger children, for car seats that have level line indicators. 

If your car seat model has an angle indicator with a ball, rather than level lines, the ball should be between the two marks on the indicator that matches the weight of your child.
