The Guardianfix adapts perfectly in width and height and can be used from approximately 9 months (9 kg) up to 12 years (36 kg) of age. In Group 1 the child is secured using the new Enhanced Kiddy Impact Shield (approx. 9 months to 3 years). In Group 2 & 3 the child is secured using the vehicles 3-Point seat belt.
Impact Shield - The new impact shield system from Kiddy provides perfect protection, especially for small children. The impact shield absorbs the energy of a collision so that the upper body naturally rolls over, reducing the forces on the neck region, compared to a 5-point harness system. The enhanced Impact Shield conforms to ECE-R44/04 Supplement 7 - the roll over test.
Adjustments - For older children, the backrest is adjustable in height and width whilst the leg rest is also adjustable to 5 positions and can be modified as they grow. The unique adjustment mechanism is simple to use by squeezing the handle on the back of the seat, with just one hand. A new eye level indicator built into the headrest ensures the child always has the perfect head support and the backrest is always correctly aligned with the child's height.
Side Impact Protection - The Guardianfix 3 side impact protection has been designed to give optimum protection in the event of a side collision. A high-tech energy-absorbing material called "Honeycomb 2" is used in the sensitive head and shoulder area, in order to protect this delicate area of the child.
K-fix Connectors - The seat can be easily fixed into a vehicle using the practical K-fix+ connectors to the ISOFIX system. The optimised K-fix+ system also makes it possible for the seat to slide sideways, away from the door in the event of a side impact. Due to the convenient retraction mechanism, you can retract the K-fix+ connectors into the child safety seat quickly and easily. This makes this car seat also suitable for use in vehicles without an ISOFIX system.
Comfort features - The Phoenixfix 3 also has many comfort features such as 3D mesh fabrics keeping your child at a cool temperature and a removable seat insert so your child is always at the correct height whilst proving extra support and comfort. The new K-fix+ system facilitates an increased angle of recline which allows a child weighing 9-18kg, to have a relaxed and comfortable snoozing position, especially during long trips.
Use in aircraft - In the opinion of experts, the simple airplane lap belt may already be a safety risk to small children in turbulence or an emergency landing. This child safety car seat has been approved by TÜV Rheinland (please check with your airline first).
Please Note: Kiddy ships these car seats to us with two car seats in one box. Therefore, we have to repackage them into individual boxes to send to you. This does not mean that the car seat has been used or tampered with and should be accepted as a brand new unused car seat.
