FAQs

  • Can I use a car seat on the front passenger seat?

    Answer

    Child car seats can be placed on the front passenger seat, but the rear seat is preferable. When using a baby car seat (0-13 months) on the front passenger seat, make sure the seat does not have a frontal airbag or that the airbag has been deactivated. When using car seats for older children (9 months to 12 years), the front passenger seat must be in the rearmost position.

  • Do Maxi-Cosi car seats fit in all cars?

    Answer

    Maxi-Cosi child car seats have been developed as universal car seats. This means that they should fit in almost any car. In accordance with the European safety standard ECE R44/04, car seats are universal if a specified minimum length of seat belt is required for installation. The car industry is aware of this. Car manufacturers sometimes fit safety seat belts that are just barely long enough for correct installation of child car seats. If the user manual of your car states that the seat belts are suitable for using universal car seats, this should not be a problem. However, we recommend that you try installing the car seat first before purchasing it. Your retailer can help you with 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.

  • 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.

  • My car seat is defective. What should I do?

    Answer

    In addition to the sale of our product, we have also entrusted the service and warranties for our products to a number of official dealers/retailers (see our website). After all, you bought the product from the retailer, which means he or she is obliged to deal with your complaints and settle them in the correct manner.

  • Where can I find the prices?

    Answer

    Our prices are the recommended retail prices and can only be obtained from the retailer.

  • Why do I need a car seat?

    Answer

    The use of an approved child car seat is required by law for all children up to a height of 1.35 metres. This requirement applies to all countries that belong to the European Union. Car seats and boosters with ECE R44/04 certification meet the minimum requirements of this new law.

  • When should my child switch from his first Maxi-Cosi baby car seat to the next car seat?

    Answer

    We recommend that your child remain in the first car seat, Group 0 or 0+ (0-13 months) i.e. facing backwards, as long as possible because this is the safest and usually the most comfortable position. As long as the back of your child's head is fully supported by the plastic shell, we recommend using the infant car seat. The length of the child’s legs is not an important factor here. It is extremely unwise to put a child into a larger, forward-facing car seat too early.

  • Why do babies have to travel in a rear-facing position?

    Answer

    Babies have a large and heavy head compared to the rest of their body. In addition, their neck muscles are not yet fully developed. If the baby is transported in a forward-facing position, his or her head will be thrown forward in the event of a head-on collision. This can cause serious neck injury and may even be fatal. By placing the baby in a rear-facing position, the forces exerted during the crash will be distributed across the baby’s entire back.

  • What should I do if my child opens the buckle on his or her harness belt?

    Answer

    In this case, we recommend, as do all international safety experts, that you stop immediately in a safe place, fasten the buckle once more and tell the child not to open it and the reason for this. It is always a possibility that an inventive, handy or strong child will open the buckle. If the force required to open the buckle were to be considerably increased to make it impossible for the child to open it himself, this would be contrary to the legal safety standards. The position of the buckle, the colour of the button, and the operating or opening force are all laid down in European standards. In the case of an accident, someone providing assistance without any knowledge of car seats must be able to see immediately how to release the child from a car seat in an emergency.
