Usable from birth to 13 kg, 12-15 months, the seat-shell, group 0+ is always back to the road, the back with the belt 3 points or the front if the airbag is disabled .

Why a seat-shell?

  • The different crash tests prove it: in the event of a frontal impact, the back-to-road position is the one that best protects your baby. It must be transported in a hull as long as possible. Replace it with a Group 1 seat when the head reaches the top edge of the hull and can sit on its own.

Choose it well

  • Choose a comfortable model with a headrest and a reducing cushion for infants.
  • Check that your car seat is at current safety standards (ECE R 44/04 or I-Size R219).
  • Do not forget to check that the mounting system (Isofix or belt) is compatible with your car.

How to install it?

  • The seat-shell must be carefully stowed in the car. Two systems to choose from: either the seat belt of the car maintains the seat-shell, or it clipped on a base (it is called "base"). There are two types: the belt base and the Isofix base (two hooks between the seat and the back of the bench, where the base is firmly fixed). Both provide better security and stay in the vehicle.
  • The seat-hull is always back-to-road (new standard I-Size) on the rear seat or front passenger seat (after deactivating the air bag).
  • For the first use, follow the instructions. Once the seat is installed, make sure it is stable. Adjust the harness closer to the body of your baby and especially do not forget, even for very short trips, to lock it.
