Why do you need a base?

Height adjustable support leg
The support leg provides extra stability for the infant carrier base via the vehicle floor. It minimises the tilting and rotational movement and reduces the forward movement forces exerted on your child in a crash situation, helping to protect them. For a secure installation, the support leg can be adjusted to suit the height that’s best for your car. The easy-to-read indicator shows you when the support leg is positioned firmly on your vehicle’s floor.
The Joie range of prams for eg. Litetrax ,Muze and Mirus is compatible with the Joie infant car seat and base. for more info visit www.joie.com
What is Isofix?
ISOFIX is an international standardized fitting system, which provides the safest, easiest and quickest way to install a child car seat correctly without the need of vehicle seat belts. The name ISOFIX stands for ISO (International Standardization Organization) plus FIX (Fixation). ISOFIX car seats make use of two standard attachment points located at the base of the seat, plus an anti-tipping forward device: either a support leg or top tether.
Why choose an ISOFIX car seat?
While child car seats using regular seat belts are regularly installed and used incorrectly, with ISOFIX the risk of incorrect installation is very small.
ISOFIX offers high safety for children and ease of use to parents:
• Solid and permanent connection between the car seat and the car chassis: force of impact is more controlled, resulting in less force being applied on the child
• Support leg or top tether as an anti-tipping device for increased stability and safety
• Conveniently easy installation in car using standard fitting points without seat belt hassle
• Minimizes errors in installation and use compared to seat belt car seats
• Seat is also secured when driving without a child

What is The IsoFix System?
