  • 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.

  • 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.

  • My child climbs out of the belt system on the car seat.

    Answer

    The same principle applies to all car seats and means that your child cannot create extra space if there is no extra space to begin with. Some children have shown us that, with only a minimum of slack in the belt system, they can get a hand between the buckle and their stomach and then, by moving it towards their head, they can get an elbow under the belts – but this requires a very flexible shoulder. These children display a tremendous desire to free themselves from their car seat. Child safety in the car and freedom of movement are not compatible in principle. To transport a child not only safely but also comfortably, a slight amount of slack in the belt system is needed. If the belt is pulled extremely tightly and the child is sitting calmly in the car seat, experience has taught us that all car seats are the same when it comes to 'climbing out of the car seat'. We see a similar pattern in children ages 1-4 years in car seats of various types and from various manufacturers. The belt system is a closed system that keeps the child in the same position continuously - during normal car trips as well as during a sudden stop or accident. This system is closed by securing the child when tightening the belts. If this is done properly, the belts cannot be loosened during use (if this does happen, we ask that you contact our Service Department through the retailer where you bought the product).

  • 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.

  • What is a forward facing restraint ?

    Answer

    This type of restraint is to be used in a forward-facing position with built-in harness once the child’s shoulders are above the lower shoulder height marker (approx 6 months of age). When the child’s shoulders reach height marker (approx 4 years of age) the child can safely move to a booster seat.

  • 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’s the difference between an inbuilt harness and a child safety harness ?

    Answer

    An inbuilt harness is made at the time of manufacture as part of the child restraint. A child safety harness is purchased as a separate item. A child safety harness is attached to a child restraint anchorage point and is sometimes used with a booster seat or lap-only seat belt. A child safety harness is difficult to fit correctly. A child safety harness should not be used with a booster seat if a lap-sash seat belt is available.

  • 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.

  • 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. If the car can be repaired, also have all the car seat belts that were activated during the accident replaced. Please contact our Customer Service Team to see how we are able to assist you to make sure your children travel safe.

  • Where can I find the prices?

    Answer

    Maxi-Cosi doesn't sell direct to consumers so our prices can only be obtained from our retailers. Please contact you nearest retailer or find one in our 'where to buy' section on this website.

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

    Answer

    Please contact our Customer Service (phone: 1300 809 526) center so we will be able to assist you. Or, if possible, go back to the retailer where you purchased the car seat.
