(1) These Group 1 seats are suitable from 6mths as long as the child can sit up unaided.

(2) If you have underfloor storage compartments in your vehicle and the support leg of the BeSafe iZi Combi (ISOfix or non-ISOfix) is positioned on top of the storage compartment lid, BeSafe recommend that the compartment has to be filled up in such a way that the cover can hold the forces of the support leg. If your car comes with a filler for the underfloor storage compartment, please insert this before positioning the BeSafe leg on top of the lid. If it does not, BeSafe advise that polystyrene may be used. Polystyrene sheet can be bought from a number of DIY/hardware stores which will fill most storage compartments when cut. Polystyrene balls (available from craft shops) can be used to fill any gaps around the sheets and any awkward corners of the storage compartment.

(3) Only suitable if the car manufacturer's filler is used to fill the compartment before resting the seat leg on the compartment lid, or the lid is left open and the support leg is extended into the compartment to rest firmly on the steel floor of the vehicle.

(4) There must be a gap of 25cm or the BeSafe car seat must touch the front seat or dashboard.
