In the section called Installation Problems you will find errors in the assembly of child car seats, errors that make the car seat, no matter how good it is, a malfunctioning device, or even dangerous.

Not all car seats are suitable for all types of cars.

An incorrectly installed car seat, or incompatible with the car, will not function properly as a protection system in the event of an impact, which can become dangerous.

Car seats considered universal or semi-universal will not fit in absolutely any car.

Even if a car seat has passed Impact Tests and scored well, this does not automatically make it compatible with your car or according to your child’s age or weight / height or conformation.

The new R129 standard (for i-Size seats) may not be compatible with your car and should be checked before purchasing.

Car seat manufacturers have included compatibility lists with various makes and models of vehicles, but this is not a perfectly real list.

These compatibility guides are for advisory purposes only and do not guarantee that the car seat will fit perfectly in your car. That is why an incorrectly installed car seat is a dangerous seat!

The only way to check the compatibility between the seat and the car is a physical check before purchasing the car seat.

Our specialists can advise you on the correct installation of car seats if you have 2 or 3 children .

In the Child Car Safety Center , we guarantee to check each seat on the car before deciding to purchase it.

If you have already purchased a car seat, contact us to schedule a car seat check.
