2 minutesread

Car safety includes many technical topics, among which ISOFIX. By choosing an ISOFIX seat, you’re choosing one amongst the safest ways for your child to travel within the car. But what’s it exactly and why is it so safe? We are needing to share all there’s to understand about ISOFIX.

What is ISOFIX?

ISOFIX is an internationally standardized seat fitting system. It automatically locks your seat – or seat base – onto two metal clips (ISOFIX fixing points) between the vehicle seat of your car. No have to use the life belt anymore.

Why choose ISOFIX?

With ISOFIX, the chance of putting in a seat incorrectly is smaller, compared to using your car’s safety belt.
For baby car seats, you may need a further seat base to use ISOFIX. Most first-time parents install our car seats correctly because of the easy-to-use ISOFIX base. For toddler car seats, you’ll either choose for a seat that’s installed together with your car’s safety belt or with ISOFIX. For child car seats, you’ll be able to choose for an ISOFIX seat additionally to the safety harness, for a more stable seat.

ISOFIX ensures:

• minimal risk of incorrect installation, as indicators, indicate an accurate installation.
• a permanent connection between the seat and therefore the car, just in case of a sudden brake, less force will impact on your baby.
• quick installation and straightforward removal, which is especially convenient for baby car seats, due to the ISOFIX base

Does my car have ISOFIX?

ISOFIX has been a regular in most new cars as of 2006. These days, a minimum of 60% of all European cars have ISOFIX, so there’s a giant chance that yours will have it too. The easiest way to find out is to check the user manual of your car. just in case your car does have ISOFIX, you may find an ISOFIX logo or label at the bottom of the seat.
