CAR INSTALLATION

There are different types of child restraint systems, from those specially designed to carry babies in a horizontal position (carrycots/prams), to actual seats which comprise a seat and backrest (the most popular), or simple booster cushions that allow the vehicle safety belts to remain at the correct height (on the collar bone), ideal for older children.

CARRYCOTS (0-10 kg)

GROUP 0+ CAR SEATS (0-13 kg)

Infants weighing up to 13 kg who use Group 0+ car seats must travel rear-facing.
If the child car seat is installed on a vehicle seat with an airbag, this has to be disabled beforehand. If the child car seat is installed on the front seat of the vehicle, you must disable the airbag; if this is not possible, the child car seat must be installed on another seat.
To ensure correct and simple installation, the vehicle seat harness slots are indicated in light blue.
The Group 0+ infant car seats come with an incorporated child restraint safety harness. We recommend that you rotate the infant car seats handle against the vehicle seat backrest with a view to improving its stability further.
Group 0+ seats are versatile products as they can be used on a stroller, at home and in the car. It is also possible to fit a base in the car which makes daily use easier. The base, in fact, remains installed inside the vehicle and the child car seat simply connects onto it when needed.

There are two different bases available on the market:

  • with 3-point harness installation system, with blue coloured guides to install the harness straps.
  • Isofix, fitted with Isofix connectors and a support leg (semi-universal system)

GROUP 1 CAR SEATS (9-18 kg)

Children from 9 to 18 kg who use Group 1 car seats must travel forward-facing.
The Group 1 child car seats come with an incorporated child restraint safety harness. It is important that the length of the belt is adjusted each time to suit the height of the child, and ensure correct restraint in case of impact.
It is important to check that the child car seat harness strap fits snugly to the child's body, even when the child is wearing winter clothes. If a space is left between the child's body and the harness strap - in the event of an accident - the upper part of the body may manage to slip out of the harness.

The Group 1 car seats available on the market have:

  • 3-point harness installation system, with red coloured guides to install the harness straps.
  • Isofix system that can also be installed using the vehicle safety belt.

GROUP 0+/1 CAR SEATS (0-18 kg)

If you use a Group 0+/1 child car seat (from 0 to 18 kg), infants must travel rear-facing from birth until they reach 9 kg in weight. When a child weighs from 9 to 13 kg, you can decide whether to keep the child car seat rear-facing or turn it around to use it forward-facing, according to the preferences of the child and parents; it is however recommended, from a safety standpoint, to continue to use the child car seat rear-facing until the infant reaches a weight of 13 kg.
These child car seats have different coloured harness slots to accommodate the vehicle safety belts: blue for Group 0+ and red for Group 1, to reduce assembly errors to a minimum.

GROUP 2/3 CAR SEATS (15-36 kg))

The Group 2-3 car seats are used for children from 15 to 36 kg.
A booster seat with backrest and headrest offers maximum safety for your child. The backrest can be adjusted in height to ensure the harness strap fits correctly over the child's shoulder.
There are also backless boosters available on the market that are included in this group.
It is recommended to use booster seats with backrests to protect the head and shoulders even in the case of side impact collision.
In all cases, the child and the safety car seat are held in place by the standard car seat belts.
When children reach a height of 150 cm, they no longer need to use a child car seat as their height allows the adult car seat belts to pass over their shoulder properly, without touching their neck.

GROUP 1/2/3 CAR SEATS (9-36 kg)

The Group 1-2-3 car seats are used for a wider weight range (from 9 to 36 kg, from about 1 to 12 years of age).
