Choosing the right seat

Check suitability with your car

When selecting a child seat, it is advisable to check the suitability in your car before you purchase it. The best way to do this is to have it fitted in the car by someone who is trained and experienced and preferably with your child. Please arrange a consultation and we will be happy to help you. However, in the event that you can not try before you buy, here are some points that you may find useful. Please note that these are guidelines only and are not a guarantee that the car seat will fit into your car. The only way to know for certain is to have the seat fitted.

Space requirements

The space needed for rear facing seats can be considerable, although we have found a solution for every car! Below are car seat measurements and the required space in the car (please see the measuring diagram). The measurements here were taken in a BMW 3 Series Touring and they will vary a little from car to car. They were taken in full recline where recline option was available.
