Isofix child seat guide

When buying a child seat, parents want to be on the safe side and look for a model that offers their child maximum protection in the event of an accident. Among experts, child seats with Isofix fastening are the safest transport solution for toddlers. However, they are usually twice as expensive as conventional child seats with belt attachment. At Isofix, the seat is connected to special eyelets with special metal hooks. If there is an accident, these eyelets hold the seat back. In addition, the child is kept in his seat by the belt from injury. Although Isofix is ​​a worldwide standardized system, Isofix child seats do not automatically fit into any car. What differences there are and what parents should pay attention to when buying, we explain here.

How does Isofix work?

More than half of the cars on European roads are equipped with Isofix. Since the beginning of 2013, the Isofix eyelets and the so-called Top Tether have been part of every new car. The installation of a child seat is easy and quick thanks to Isofix. The compatible baby car seats and child seats have two hooks on the bottom left and right side of the seat, which look out of the housing of the seat a few centimeters. The counter-eyelets on the car can be found in the back seat in the slot between the backrest and seat. In newer vehicles they are marked with the lettering Isofix and easily accessible through a depression. To attach the Child seatplaced in the back seat and pushed back so that the hooks slide over the eyelets and audibly engage.

Newer child seats are often additionally equipped with Top Tether. This is an additional belt, which is attached to the top of the rear of the child seat and is guided over the backrest to a bracket on the vehicle. However, this is not available on every car and can not be retrofitted. If the bracket is present, the belt is hooked here and tight. It provides additional support for the child seat in a crash. Some seats are also equipped with an additional support foot. This ensures to support the child seat in a crash against the floor of the car. However, this only makes sense if the support stand is also on the floor panel of the car and there are no objects, such as toys between foot and floor.

Advantages and disadvantages of Isofix

The advantages outweigh in Isofix child seats. Especially in terms of safety, the seats score points with experts and in crash tests. Due to the simple fastening system, injuries due to incorrect belt guidance, such as those that occur again and again in child seats with belt attachment, are avoided. Due to the rigid connection with the car body is also the riskminimizes the collapse of the belt in a crash and the child leaps forward. Isofix also pays off when the child seat is empty. If there is an accident without a child on board, the seat can not become a bullet and injure people sitting in front of it.

But Isofix also has some disadvantages. This way, child seats with Isofix can only be fastened on the back seat left and right. The middle position that is considered safe among experts can not be used. In addition, the Isofix eyelets are not easily accessible by any vehicle. Some cars are hidden deep in the upholstery.

Maximum security from the beginning

Child seats with Isofix are available for children of all ages. Even for the smallest, the trade offers seats of „Group 0“ (for a body weight between 0 and 13 kg). These are mostly baby bowls, like the Britax-Romans Baby SeatPrimo, which have an Isofix base next to the shell. Parents can take the baby carrier out of the car at any time – for example when shopping or at home – with the child while the base remains in the car. But even for the older children there is a large selection of Isofix child seats. It is advisable for parents to put their child on the scale before buying, because the seats are divided into weight classes. These are for Isofix child seats as follows:

– Group 0 (0 to 10 kg)
– Group 0+ (0 to 13 kg)
– Group 0+ & 1 (0 to 18 kg)
– Group 1 (9 to 18 kg)
– Group 1 & 2 (9 to 25 kg)
– Group 1 to 3 (9 to 36 kg)
– Group 2 (15 to 25 kg)
– Group 2 & 3 (15 to 36 kg)
– Group 3 (22 to 36 kg)

Check if car and seat fit together

Even though Isofix is ​​a worldwide standard, not every child seat is automatically suitable for every car. Therefore, parents should, if they like a seat model, take a look at the vehicle type list of the seat manufacturer. Here should the car model, in which the Isofix child seat be attached, be listed. If that is the case, it means that the manufacturer has already tested the combination of car and seat and found it to be good.
