Car Seat With Isofix

Isofix car seats are the way forward and the future of car seats in the UK. They have been designed because in the past parents parents have struggled to fit the normal car seats in to their vehicles successfully. The main issues with the normal child car seats is that all car seats are different and all seats in cars are different, and therefore it is difficult to get the child car seats to fit as it should into all makes and models of cars.

Isofix tackles that problem by standardising the fitting of child car seats in to cars. It is now an international standard and any Isofix car seat will fit into an Isofix car seat base. It is that popular that all new cars by law will have to have as standard an Isofix point fitted to the vehicle from 2014.

The new Car Seat Isofix system was brought about because of the myriad of ways to fit a car seat, not all of them are safe however.
