Car seat safety is very important here at baby direct, you can't take anything for granted, not all seats fit in all cars even isofix seats and bases aren't compatible with some cars.
Fitting with a seat belt, common problems, seat belt not long enough, infant carriers / rearward facing car seat to upright, buckle not sitting correctly resulting in buckle crunching which is very dangerous, tight and secure fit impossible to achieve,

fitting with isofix, while isofix fixings are standard on all cars and car seats, it doesn't mean they're compatible, the  angle of the seat, the shape of the seat, the head rest, the under storage box, even the angle which it puts the car seat at can make the car seat incompatible with your car, we have fitting lists supplied by our car seat manufactures which allow us to check this out for you.

Have you acquired this seat from a friend or relative, check it hasn't been in an accident, a slight hair line crack not visible to the eye can have devastating results in an accident, have you got the instructions, don't rely on them showing you how to fit it, how do you know they're doing it right, did they buy it from a reputable supplier  who checked and showed them how to fit it.

finally if you change your car check the seat you have is compatibles with your new purchase.

 
 
 
 
How to Choose the Right Seat

Car Seats are structured in groups based on children’s weight. Because age alone is not an accurate way of choosing a car seat, an industry standard system also takes weight into account. Never buy a car seat that is too big and always make certain it is appropriate for your child’s weight - as only the correct seat can provide the right level of safety.

When should you change the seat?
· Move from a Group 0+ to a Group 1 seat when your child can sit up unaided with confidence, exceeds the weight limit, or if their head is higher than the top of the infant carrier.
· Move from a Group 1 to a Group 2-3 seat when the weight limit is exceeded, or you child’s eye-line is higher than the seat’s highest point.
-----
The regulation ECE 44 specifies a rear facing position until the child weighs 10kg (Group 0) or 13kg (Group 0+). We recommend keeping a rear facing position as long as possible - until the child weighs 13kg or until the child’s head is above the infant carrier seat structure. This position can be kept for older children, up to 18kg (approximately 4 years) by using special rear facing seats which are sold mainly in Sweden. Such seats require installation by trained personnel, they need additional straps for securing the seats to the car, and may not fit into some cars as they are generally larger. For further information, please contact the customer service team.
