Is it only compatible with the Maxi-Cosi Cabriofix, Pebble and Pebble Plus or can I use a different car seat?
Yes, it is only compatible with the Maxi-Cosi car seats.
Do you sell Isofix bases?
We currently have two isofix bases available namely the Maxi-Cosi FamilyFix and Maxi-Cosi 2WayFix base.
What is the difference between the FamilyFix and 2WayFix bases?

Both the bases can accommodate the Cabriofix, Pebble and PebblePlus Group 0 car seats. The difference is in the Group 1 car seat that installs onto the base. The FamilyFix accommodates a Group 1 car seat called the Pearl (9 – 18kg). The Pearl can only be installed facing forwards. The 2WayFix accommodates a Group 1 car seat called the 2WayPearl. This seat can be installed onto the 2WayFix from 6 months in the rearward facing position. The 2WayPearl will be rotated to face forwards at 15 months up to 18kg or 105cm.

Is there a Group 1 car seat that can install onto the EasyBase 2 car seat base?
No, this base can only be used with the Cabriofix car seat.
What is Isofix?

ISOFIX car seats and bases have 3 ISOFIX points:

  • 2 ISOFIX connectors (metal bars) fit on the anchor points (metal clips) at the base of the vehicle seat.
  • A top tether or support leg

The top tether anchor point is on the boot floor or the back of the seat bench. In most newer cars it’s highlighted with the top tether logo. The top tether hook of the car seat needs to be firmly attached to the hook, to secure the third ISOFIX point.

The support leg is on the floor of the car between the back and front seats (when installed on the rear bench) or between the front seat and dashboard (when installed on the passenger seat). To work correctly, the support leg of the car seat should be stable.

If you use a support leg, it is very important to check whether the floor of the car has a floor storage compartment.

If it has, you must check the car fitting list / instruction manual to see how you can use a support leg in combination with the compartment.

What is i-size?

i-Size is a European car seat safety regulation that came into force in July 2013. It’s part of the R129 regulations and applies to new car seats for babies and young children up to around four years old. i-Size was developed using the very latest research into child safety in cars.

What makes i-Size safer?

  • Children have improved head and neck protection
  • Babies and toddlers up to 15 months old must travel in rear facing car seats
  • You have to use ISOFIX –  a system that makes the car seat easy to fit correctly in the car
  • i-Size car seats will fit almost all ISOFIX cars
  • You choose a car seat based on your baby’s length, rather than weight.

How is my child better protected by i-Size?

Rear facing car seats
These offer maximum protection to babies and toddlers by spreading most of the impact in a frontal collision.

Before July 2013, babies could be moved into a front facing car seat at approximately 9-12 months, which we learned was not old enough. The new regulation makes it mandatory for children to remain rear-facing for at least 15 months.

Side impact standards
This gives your child better protection if you’re hit side-on.

 Better installation
It’s much harder to install an i-Size car seat incorrectly as it doesn’t rely on guiding a seatbelt round it. i-Size car seats simply click onto your car’s ISOFIX anchor points, and they fit almost all cars with ISOFIX.

Better fit
Because you can choose your i-Size car seat based on length rather than weight, your growing baby can stay in the seat for longer.

My car seat conforms to the previous regulation. Must I upgrade to i-Size?
No. i-Size doesn’t replace the previous regulation for the moment – it gives you another option when you buy a car seat. You can be confident that the i-Size option complies with current car seat laws.

Why is the first stage car seat rearward facing only?
Group 0 car seats are approved according to the latest European safety standard ECE R44/04. This regulation requires that the Group 0 car seat be installed rearward facing to protect a baby from breaking it’s neck should there be a front impact.
How do I install the car seat into the car if I don’t have a base?
How do I know if my car comes with Isofix?
You can check your car user manual or your closest dealer. Some cars will have labels stitched into the rear seats.
Can the car seats face each other on the twin pram frame?
No, both the car seats will face the parent pushing the pram.
How to remove the Cabriofix cover to clean?
Does the car seat come with a sun canopy?
Yes all the car seats come with an integrated sun canopy. Please see the link below to see how to install it.
How to install the Sun Canopy on the Group 0 car seats?
Up until what age/weight can I use the carry cot?
9kg which is approximately 6 – 9 months. The carry cots should not be used once an infant becomes mobile.
When would I use the carry cot?
Carry cots are great to use around the home, if you are out shopping or if you travel a lot. They can also be used as seperate basinetts.
Can I lend my single pram carry cot to my friend that has a twin pram?
No, the adapters are different.
