FAQs

  • Is it possible to fit 3 car seats on the back seat?

    Answer

    Depending on the type of car, 3 car seats may fit on the back seat.
    We recommend taking your car to the retailer to check this.

  • How do I wash the fabric cover?

    Answer

    The cover can be washed by hand in accordance with the instructions on the care label. The instruction manual contains detailed instructions on how to remove the fabric cover.


    You can see some washing instructions movies on the Maxi-Cosi Youtube channel

  • I have had an accident while the child was sitting in the car seat. Can I still use the seat?

    Answer

    We recommend not using the seat again. At impact speeds from 30 km/h, invisible damage may occur. To assure your child of absolute safety in another accident, you should replace the seat. Destroy the old seat to ensure that it cannot be used for another child. If the car can be repaired, also have all the car seat belts that were activated during the accident replaced.

  • Is it safe to use second-hand car seats?

    Answer

    We advise against purchasing a used car seat. The history of a second-hand car seat is often unknown. In other words, you cannot know for certain how it has been used. Car seats that have been involved in an accident are no longer guaranteed to be safe. The car seat may also be damaged in some other way or may be incomplete.

  • Is it true that it is no longer allowed to use a booster cushion/seat without back support?

    Answer

    Yes, that's true. Booster cushions have been deleted from the 2010 version of the Australian Standard for child restraints (AS/NZS 1754) because they provide no side impact protection in a crash. Back support is essential, particularly for reasons of side impact protection, though also due to the positioning of the seat belt around the neck and chest.

    Booster cushions are still legal to use, however booster seats with high backs and side wings are recommended as they provide a higher level of safety in some types of crashes.

  • Who is responsible for ensuring a child is restrained in an approved restraint ?

    Answer

    The driver of the vehicle is responsible for ensuring all children aged under seven years of age are restrained in appropriate, standards approved restraints.

  • What type of restraint should I use for my child?

    Answer

    You should use a restraint that is appropriate for your child’s age and size. It must be an approved child restraint that complies with Australian Standards (AS/NZS1754) and is marked as complying with the Australian Standard. Advice on how to select an appropriate child restraint can be found on our website in the 'safe travel' section. You can compare different car seats in the section 'products'.

  • What is a booster seat ?

    Answer

    Booster seats have high backs and sides to provide protection for children in side impact crashes as well as providing support for when they are sleeping. They are suitable for children from around four years of age up to seven years of age. Booster seats are used with an adult lap/sash seatbelt. The seat belt must be correctly adjusted to protect the child in the instance of a crash.

  • The seat belt does not retract when my child falls asleep. What should I do?

    Answer

    If a child falls asleep and slumps forward, the seat belt will gradually move forward together with the child. This is a feature of automatic belts. If the automatic mechanism does not roll up the belt properly, the third belt point (direction of the automatic mechanism) is probably in an incorrect position, i.e. placed too far forward. The seat belt is then threaded at an almost impossible angle, resulting in too much friction in the belt hook. This situation can occur in some station wagons, for example. For this reason we recommend that you try installing the car seat in your car before purchasing it. Your retailer can help you with this.

  • I dropped my car seat on the ground. Do I have to replace it now?

    Answer

    No, that is not necessary if it was a normal ‘drop’ and not an extremely hard one or from a considerable height. When a car seat is dropped on the ground, it is not subject to the same kinds of forces as are exerted during a (serious) collision. There is therefore no need to replace the car seat.

  • How should I clean the car seat?

    Answer

    You can clean the car seat with a vacuum cleaner. You can also blow it clean with compressed air. Any food particles that are stuck to it can be removed using a slightly damp cloth. Make sure that the foam parts do not get wet.

  • At what age can a child travel in the front seat ?

    Answer

    The Australian road rules allow a child aged 7 years and over to travel in the front seat, however research shows that children under 16 years of aged are at 40% greater risk of injury when traveling in the front seat. If a vehicle has two or more rows of seats, children aged under 4 years must not travel in the front seat. If all rear seats are being used by children under 7 years of age, children aged 4 years to under 7 years may travel in the front seat, provided they travel in a booster seat.

  • Can I use an integrated booster cushion/seat ?

    Answer

    Yes, an integrated (or integral) booster cushion is forward facing and is built into some vehicles by the vehicle manufacturer. The occupant minimum and maximum weight restrictions for integrated booster cushions are specified in the vehicle owner’s manual. An integrated booster cushion is considered to be an approved booster seat and is therefore able to be used by a child aged 4 years and over. It is recommended to keep using the integrated seat until the child reaches the maximum weight restriction as specified in the vehicle owner’s manual. Note - the integrated booster cushion must comply with clause 34.8 of the Australian Design Rule 34/01 - Child Restraint Anchorages and Child Restraint Anchor Fittings. Please refer to your vehicle owner's manual or contact the vehicle manufacturer to identify if your integrated booster cushion meets these requirements.

  • Can we use a child restraint or booster seat from overseas ?

    Answer

    No. Child restraints and booster seats purchased overseas do not comply with the Australian Standard for child restraints: AS/NZS 1754:2010 so using them in Australia is illegal. The Australian Standard is one of the most stringent child restraint standards in the world.

  • Are booster cushions (no seat back) illegal to use?

    Answer

    No they are legal to use, BUT they have been deleted from the current Australian Standard because they provide no side impact protection in a crash. So booster cushions are still legal to use, however booster seats with high backs and side wings are recommended as they provide a higher level of safety in some types of crashes.

  • If I can’t fit my three children in three restraints in the back, is it OK if one sits in the front ?

    Answer

    Yes. If there are two child restraints or booster seats in the rear and there is not enough space to put a third restraint in the rear seat then a passenger aged 4 years to less than 7 years can travel in a booster seat in the front seat. You will need to use a booster seat that does not have a tether strap.
