Great, safe and reclining car seat! (what more do you want?!)
on 4 July 2014
This is a fantastic car seat for many reasons... You can fit is using just the seat belt (look at u-tube video "isafe S06W Isofix Duo Trio Plus Isofix and Top Teether Car Seat") you can fit it with the isofix, or both!! There is also a top teether which goes into the boot and clips to the metal clip for added safety.
The quality of this chair is fantastic, the cushioning in great and very padded, the seat belt protectors don't keep moving round like others chairs, the seat does not leave it's safe position when you recline the chair (unlike other products we've looked at!)
As for which cars it fits, you get a car list with the product and it had every car I knew in there!! (Vauxhall is listed under Opel) I have a Vauxhall Corsa 2011 and my husband has a Ford Fiesta and they fit just fine (and are on the list) I would write the list but it is soooooo long!!
To fit with selt belt, you just unclip the clip on the side at the top of the chair then on the other side there is a knob that you pull out and the chair bit comes forward so that you can put the seat belt through the back of the seat (this isn't on the instructions but is on u-tube) very easy. I have it fitted with all three and it is so secure!
To fit it with the isofix, you pull up the lever on the bottom of the chair and pull out the isofix pegs all the way out (take the covers off the pegs!!) then slide the chair into the isofix slots in your car (with or without the plastic bits you get) (at the back of the seat it will say isofix) push the seat till you hear a click both sides and a green colour shows at the sides, then pull up the lever and push the chair all the way in until you here a click.
To remove the chair from the isofix, push the car seat towards the seat then pull the lever and pull the chair out so the isofix pegs are at the longest they can be (the chair will still be attached) then the green colour will show, move that section and it will release the isofix from the car. Do the same the other side. (took me ages to work this out!!)
Ok, other benefits of this seat: no need to faff around with the childs seat belt restraint as they grow as when you move the headrest up, the restraints move with it! clever clever!
And the best feature by far (other than the safe fitting) is the way this chair reclines! So imagine you have your seat fitted, your child in the seat... you are off on your journey, and your child falls asleep and there head starts bobbing!!, just reach back (when it's safe to do so!!) reach under the chair for the lever and pull it towards you - the chair reclines! (in several positions!)
My 18 month old loves this and so do I. I would highly recommend anyone that is looking for a chair that will last to purchase this one.
