FAQs

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

    Answer

    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?

    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.

  • When the buckle is open, I can't lengthen the harnesses on the Tobi, as if they are stuck. What's the problem?

    Answer

    This may be because the belt buckle is not flapped forward enough. Pushing it forward by hand will release the blockage so that you can loosen the harnesses.

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

    Answer

    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.

  • Can I install the Maxi-Cosi Tobi on the front passenger seat?

    Answer

    Yes you can install the Tobi on the front passenger seat. Please make sure that, if installing on a front seat equipped with an airbag, the seat is in the rearmost position.

  • How many sitting and sleeping positions does the Maxi-Cosi Tobi have?

    Answer

    The Maxi-Cosi Tobi has five comfortable positions - from a sitting to a sleeping position - and can be easily adjusted from the front.

  • I am unable to adjust the headrest on the Maxi-Cosi Tobi. What should I do?

    Answer

    The headrest is also used to adjust the height of the shoulder belts. To adjust the headrest, you need to first open the belt buckle, flap it forward, and then loosen the shoulder belts. If you hold down the button behind the grey part of the cover, you can adjust the headrest by moving it up or down.

  • I am unable to adjust the headrest on the Maxi-Cosi Pearl. What should I do?

    Answer

    The headrest is also used to adjust the height of the shoulder belts. To adjust the headrest, you need to first open the belt buckle, flap it forward, and then loosen the shoulder belts. If you hold down the button behind the grey part of the cover, you can adjust the headrest by moving it up or down.

  • I need to pull quite hard to fasten the safety harness of my Maxi-Cosi Tobi so that the indicator is green, why?

    Answer

    Fastening the safety harness is pretty heavy because of the routing of the safety harness belt. This is normal. In order to be sure, you can check the backside of the car seat to see if the belts are not twisted. Also check if the belt can be moved "freely" through the shoulder openings.

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

    Answer

    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?

    Answer

    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?

    Answer

    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.
