Why Choose Isofix

What is ISOFIX?

ISOFIX is an internationally standardised car seat fitting system. It gives you the safest, easiest and quickest way to fit a child car seat correctly, without using a seat belt. The child car seat or base will contain isofix prongs which attach to the isofix anchorage in the vehicle.

Why choose ISOFIX?
With ISOFIX, the risk of installing a car seat incorrectly is very small compared with using a car seat belt. A recent UK survey found that 52% of all car seats fitted with a seat belt were incorrectly installed.


ISOFIX gives you:

  • a rigid, permanent connection between the child car seat and the car chassis, so if you brake sharply or have an accident, less force will impact on your child
  • indicators showing you’ve fitted the car seat correctly
  • a system that’s shown to be outstandingly safe in tests
  • quick, easy installation and removal

Will my car have ISOFIX?
Standard in most new cars from 2006.
It’s estimated around 60% of cars on the road in Europe have it. Originally there were 2 anchorage points, but now a third point – either a top tether or support leg – has been added for improved safety. From February 2013, all new vehicles have had to have 2 lower ISOFIX anchorages and the top tether installed.

ISOFIX will be indicated in your car user manual or by a label which is sewn into your car seats.
