  • Is it possible to mount my car seat (Group 1 or Group 0+/1) onto the frame of my pushchair?


    This is not possible with our current range of products. Our products are developed with a strong focus on safety, quality and user-friendliness. The combination you mention would require that we make concessions to these three aspects. We have decided against making such concessions at this time.

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


    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).

  • The belts are not the same length. Why is this?


    Uneven belts may be caused by the incorrect guiding of the harness system. Check at the back of the car seat that the belts are not twisted and that the pull belt (that runs forward at the bottom of the shell) is in the middle of the system. Also check that the belt can move easily to and fro through the shoulder openings. For smooth movement, the belt buckle should be flapped forward completely. This belt buckle operates by releasing the belt tensioner. If the problem continues after you have checked this, consult your retailer.

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


    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.

  • Do I have to adjust the safety harness each time I place my child in the car seat?


    Yes. Each time you install your child in the car seat you should fasten the safety harness. This is because the child can wear different clothing. If the harness is correctly tight, you should be able to pass only 1 finger between your child's body and the harness strap.

  • There are white marks on the fabric after I have washed it, how can I get rid of them?


    These are caused by residual soap powder, if you rinse your cover in water with no detergent / softner these will come out. You may need to rinse the fabrics a few times to get these out.

  • What is the right position for the headrest of my child car seat?


    The child's head has to be totally protected and should not exceed the headrest.

  • What is the right position/height for the safety harness?


    The harness straps should be placed at the level of the shoulders, not coming from above nor below. The headrest should be adjusted in consequence, keeping the harness at the level of the shoulders.

  • Why do Maxi Cosi group 1 car seats have a 5-point safety harness?


    All group 1 car seats of Maxi-Cosi have 5 point safety harness with one-pull adjustment. This harness distributes the forces of an impact best over the strong bones of the child and into the seat. Additionally, the 5 point harness allows perfect adjustment of the child and keep him secured in the safest position in the seat.

  • When should I make the transition from a Group I seat to a Group 2/3 seat


    For the safety of your child, we recommend using the Group I car seat (9 months to 3 1/2 years/9-18 kg) for as long as possible. Wait to switch your child to a next stage car seat until your child has reached the maximum weight limit or if the top of your child’s head protrudes above the top edge of the seat. As long as the back of your child's head is fully supported by the shell, we advise against making the switch just yet, so that your child can be offered the best possible protection.

  • How can I install the Priori SPS best to the car seat bench?


    Please consult the manual when installing the Priori SPS. Place the Maxi-Cosi Priori SPS on the car seat in the sleeping position. Thread the seat belt between the shell and the base. Fasten the seat belt in the belt buckle of the car and check to ensure the car seat belt is not twisted. Place the shoulder belt in the belt clamp on one side only and fasten it. Next, push the Maxi-Cosi Priori SPS firmly into the car seat whilst at the same time pulling the shoulder belt tight, so that the Maxi-Cosi Priori SPS is securely in place.

  • How can I adjust the safety harness of the Priori SPS?


    Please consult the manual for a visualization of these steps: Place the Maxi-Cosi Priori SPS in the sleeping position and open the belt guard door. Remove the shoulder belts from the belt yoke. Pull the shoulder belts out of the belt pads and through the shell slots. Make sure that the buckle remains fixed to prevent the belts twisting. If you wish to alter the belts from or to the lowest position, place the Maxi-Cosi Priori SPS in the sleeping position. If you wish to alter the belts from or to the middle or highest position, place the Maxi-Cosi Priori SPS in the sitting position.

  • How can I make it easier to place my child in the Maxi-Cosi Priori SPS and take him out?


    The Priori SPS has convenient belt hooks that keep harness and buckle pad conveniently out of the way to easy get the child in and out.
