I been, quite, um, "amused" with the idea of car seats in australia for a while. For example, my wife borrowed this baby capsule from a friend. I thought "brilliant, it'll be better than the reversable car seats we have here"....
Did you spot the first dangerous, downright staggering issue ............................ THERE IS NO SEATBELT HOLDING IT IN ................................. OMG .... one of the kids must have unplugged it trying to get there seatbelts on and off. I only noticed this yesterday. How long has it not been strapped in for
No it's not the kids fault it had been undone... Check this out, the lump of excrement is so huge, it covers *both* seatbelts..... You can't get to the bloody things without sliding the baby capsule out of the way..... Which of course is another issue with it.
THe idea of this lump of shit is you can lift the center part out and use it like a basinnet and not wake the baby up .................. Ummmm..... spot the problem You must first unstrap the top anchor, then lift the center part up and out of the shell. This *may* be possible in a hi-roof Hi-ace van, but I don't have one to try it in. It's sure impossible in every car I own. Just like the reversable car seats we have it's so bloody huge, it has to go into the middle seating position (unless you have legless people in the front seats). So to put the baby in and out, you must "lean in" 1/2 the length of the back seat without falling over while holding the baby. Lift the baby to roof height (without slamming them into the roof) and lower them over those straps and down into the seat. Removal is the reverse gymnastics routine.
The best bit .... this is the fully strapped in seat.
You can strap 'em pretty tight into the mighty CX where the center belt is *not* inertia real. This is fitted correctly to a car with inertia real belts. What a laughable piece of shit. This is what aussie regulations force onto us.
I swore if I ever needed to get a baby seat ..... I'd buy an ISOFIX one from somewhere.
