How To Fit An Isofix Car Seat Base?

How To Fit An Isofix Car Seat Base
Don’t forget! The seat must also be suitable for your child! – Once you have bought your seat, read the manual thoroughly. This will not only give you specific instructions on how to fit your seat safely, but you will also find information which is essential to your child’s continued safety. To begin fitting your seat in the car, locate the ISOFIX points in your vehicle and attach the ISOFIX guides if required. Once you have done this, release the ISOFIX arms, so they are extended, and ensure the support leg is away from the seat base. Attach the ISOFIX arms to the ISOFIX points in your vehicle, you should hear an audible ‘click’ and the indicators will turn green. You may now have to push the child seat firmly into the vehicle seat back to secure the fit. Now lower the support leg to the floor, so that it fits firmly, but is not pushing the base of the seat upwards. If your seat uses a top tether strap instead, pass this over the back of the vehicle seat as instructed by your manual, attach to the tether point, and pull firmly – there should be no slack in the tether strap. If your child seat fits using a separate ISOFIX base, you can now click the seat into place. Remember to follow your manuals instructions – some combination ISOFIX seats require you to fit it in full recline! Once you have clicked the seat unit into place, check that all of the indicators have turned green.
