FAQs

  • What is IsoFix?

    Answer

    ISOFIX is an international standardized fitting system, which provides the safest, easiest and quickest way to install a child car seat correctly without the need of vehicle seat belts. The name ISOFIX stands for ISO (International Standardization Organization) plus FIX (Fixation). ISOFIX car seats make use of two standard attachment points located at the base of the seat, plus an anti-tipping forward device: either a support leg or top tether.
    From 2006 all new cars are equipped with ISOFIX, and ISOFIX is also fitted in a large number of car brands built prior to 2006.

  • I do not have IsoFix anchor points in my car. Can I have them installed?

    Answer

    This is usually not possible because the IsoFix anchors are almost always installed during production in the factory and are attached to the chassis of the car. However, there are a number of car makes that have been offering the IsoFix system for a number of years as an “option”. In these cars, the assembly points for the anchors are already integrated into the bottom of the car body. Audi and Volvo, for example, offer this option. Talk to your car dealer for more information.

  • Is IsoFix safer than installing with a car seat belt?

    Answer

    If installed properly, a Maxi-Cosi car seat is the safest in its class. The IsoFix method prevents incorrect installation of the car seat, but is no safer than when the seat is installed using the traditional method. IsoFix prevents incorrect installation because a colour indicator (red or green) is used to indicate the correct installation of various parts.

  • Why does the Maxi-Cosi need a support leg to support IsoFix products?

    Answer

    This support leg serves several functions. The support leg prevents the car seat from rotating (tipping) in the event of an accident. If the support leg is not used, the car seat may be pushed so far into the seat of the car during a front-end collision that the child will be thrown forward and may even hit the front seat or dashboard. The support leg is equipped with an indicator that shows whether the installation is correct. All Group 0+ and Group 1 IsoFix products from Maxi-Cosi have indicators so that you can immediately see whether the car seat has been installed correctly. The indicators are located on the steel IsoFix anchor points and the support leg: a green colour appears if the support leg is adjusted properly. The IsoFix products from Maxi-Cosi rank among the very best and safest car seats on the market. The Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix with EasyFix base has received the highest possible rating of five stars. Your child is guaranteed optimal safety with our IsoFix products.
