3 IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER
If we are installing a car seat or capsule in the newborn rear-facing position, it’s a good idea if you could place 2-3 bath towels in the car for us in case we need them. The reason for this is that your vehicle’s rear car seat may not provide the angle that the Safety Seat needs to be positioned for the baby. With a towel we could, if necessary, create a seat angle that will comply with the products instructions. This is only in case we have an angle or contour issue, every vehicle is different. We also recommend the use of Car Seat Protectors to ensure the car seat does not severely damage your vehicle’s car seat, these can be purchased at the time of installation if you require.
When fitting the Car Seat into your vehicle there may be additional accessories (like extension straps, locking clips, anchor bolts etc.) that may be required. This is fully dependent on your vehicle’s back seat structure and also where your vehicle’s anchor points are located. If these accessories are required they can be purchased at the time of installation.
When installing requires Baby Mode to re position a seat from Rear facing to forward facing or when installing a forward Facing Car Seat. It is recommended that you have your child present to make sure that the new seat positioning is compliant to your child’s requirements. If your child is not going to be available during the integration process then prior knowledge of the child’s size may be necessary to configure the unit prior to installation taking place. This can be done easily using a simple measurement of junior before you come down for the installation. All that is required is to just sit junior on the floor and measure from the floor up to their shoulder height and bring that measurement with you to the appointment. For a child to be able to be placed in the forward facing position they are required to meet the lower Height marker of their seat. This may save you time and money, as if this information is not on hand the fitter may refuse to re position or install the seat.
