Product Description

Product Description

The flexibility of two installation options

Features of the Duo Plus
Features of the Duo Plus. view larger

The Britax Duo Plus is a forward-facing infant car seat that provides a safe and comfortable experience whichever way it is installed. The seat is suited for children weighing between 9 and 18 kg.

When you install the Duo Plus with your car's Isofix system, you can also add a top tether to make the seat extra stable. The top tether is a belt at the top of the car seat that attaches to anchorage points in the car. It limits the rotational movement of the child seat, reducing the child's forward movement in the event of an accident. The top tether kit for the Duo Plus is sold separately.

If you have two cars and one of them doesn't have an Isofix system, then the Duo Plus is the ideal solution as it can also be installed with the car's three-point seatbelt. This flexibility means it is suitable for use in a wide range of cars, and ideal for moving between different vehicles.

The importance of Isofix technology

Isofix is an internationally-recognised way of fixing a child car seat to a vehicle without using a seatbelt. As of February 2011, it is required by law that the system be integrated into a minimum number of seats in all new cars. Isofix anchorage points are installed in the vehicle with matching connectors on the child safety seats, allowing seats to be securely, correctly, and permanently attached to the vehicle body. Its simple installation minimises the risk of the car seat being installed incorrectly.

In the event of an accident, the pivot link system reduces much of the forward rotation of the seat, which channels a large part of the energy downwards into the car seat. This means that in the first phase of a collision, the movement of the child that is directed forward is markedly absorbed and reduced by means of the seat being initially pressed into the car seat. In the second phase, the forward movement of the seat is slowed down. This causes the pivot link to reduce the strain placed on the child's body, in particular the cervical spine. This reduces the risk of head injury through, for example, collision with the front seat.

Side impact protection
Optimum body protection in the event of a side collision.
The importance of side impact protection

Side collisions account for one out of four car accidents and 20% of child car crash fatalities, so all Britax car seats provide side impact protection. The deeply padded side wings of the Duo Plus offer optimum body protection and full head containment. During sleep and rest, they support your child from the sides and help keep your child in the correct position. In the event of a side collision, the side wings absorb the crash energy, reducing the impact on your child.

Five-point harness for a secure position
ISOFIX Pivot Link
Pivot Link reduces forward movement and diverts force in a collision.

Britax advocates children remaining in a properly positioned five-point harness for as long as possible. The Duo Plus has an integral harness for use with smaller children with five attachment points – two at the shoulder, two at the hips, and one between the legs – ensuring your child remains securely in the seat. The harness can be adjusted with one pull.

Why choose a Group 1 single-group car seat?

Single-group car seats have the optimum shape designed for the weight of the child. They also offer additional comfort and practicality. Group 1 seats have comfortable recline systems that are easy to adjust while the child is in the seat, and the seat is fitted to the car. Group 1 car seats are suitable for children weighing between 9 and 18 kg (approximately 9 months to 4 years old). You should move from a Group 0+ to a Group 1 seat when your child exceeds the weight limit and can sit up unaided with confidence, or if their head is higher than the top of the infant carrier.

Full feature list of the Duo Plus
  • Side impact protection with deep softly-padded side wings
  • Isofix system anchors the seat directly to the car's connection points
  • Five-point harness with one-pull adjustment
  • Indicators to confirm that Isofix hooks are engaged
  • Pivot link system reduces forward movement within seat
  • Softly padded and washable quick-remove cover that can be replaced without interferring with the harness
  • Can be installed without Isofix using standard three-point seatbelt
  • Three recline positions – the seat adjusts without disturbing your child
  • Ventilation channels in the back area to help air circulation
  • Performance chest pads to spread force and provide extra comfort
  • Height adjustable headrest and harness easy single handed adjustment
Fabric choice to suit all tastes

The Duo Plus is fitted with softly-padded covers designed for comfort, practicality, and style. The car seat is available in a choice of covers, all of which are made from soft-touch fabric for extra comfort, and they are removable and machine washable which makes them easy to clean.

Spare covers are available separately for the Duo Plus, which you can use while the original is being washed or just to give the seat a new look. For car journeys in hotter weather, you may also want a Summer Cover or a Keep Cool Cover.

Car seat safety essentials

  • Never buy a second-hand car seat – you can not know its full history, and it may have been weakened or damaged in a previous incident or have parts missing
  • Buy the right car seat for your child's weight – age ranges are just guidelines
  • Move your child up to the next car seat group when they outgrow their current seat, but don't rush to do this too soon
  • Install the seat according to the manufacturer's instructions
  • Always use the car seat, even on very short journeys

5.0 out of 5 stars Performed very well in crash 22 May 2013
By calzakk
Verified Purchase
I had the very recent misfortune to be involved in a crash on the M1.

I was travelling at 60mph with my wife and one-year-old baby, who was in the Britax Duo Plus Isofix car seat. Our car was hit from behind by a lorry (foreign!), spun, and skidded along the side barrier. The car was a write-off, but fortunately the three of us were largely unharmed. My wife and I have minor whiplash but, best of all, our baby suffered no injuries at all :) The car seat performed excellently, and appeared intact and absolutely fine after the accident.

I've already placed an order for the exact same car seat (you can't use a car seat once it's been in an accident, even if it looks fine). I just need a car for it to go in...

My 11 kg boy loves it. Very comfortable. Only 4 stars as the recline is a JOKE, it only reclines a very small percentage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent buy! 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase
This has got to be the easiest car seat to fit into your car using the Isofix fittings. I had an earlier version of this seat for my older children and I decided to buy it again for my newest addition to our family. The seat is comfortable and has recline positions for when your child decides to nap. You can also move the position of the strap as they grow with one hand on an adjuster at the back of the chair (no more have to strip the seat apart to move the belts). The seat cover is easy to remove and is machine washable for when your little darling decides to christen their seat :-) all in all a great buy and even better purchase when buying at discounted price on Amazon.
