    The isofix base makes life so much easier and quicker - once you get the hang of it that is. As a single mum who has to constantly take this base in and out of family and friends cars it’s easy enough to do, although the button can be tricky to remove the car seat if you don’t get it right and trying to make the yellow clips at the back longer whilst pressing the front button can be a bit of a hassle on your own. The “red” and “green” on the base to show if it’s locked in properly is a great idea and putting the car seat in to the base is as easy as 1,2,3.

    Absolutely brilliant product and definitely worth every penny. I have twins and it so easy to use and is a massive time-saver. No need to spend ages putting the seat belt around the car seat, just put the car seat on the base and wait for the beep and all three lights. Would definitely recommend!

    We used this base with a cabriofix and it was perfect.
    It’s super simple to install and uninstall. The green indicators giving you peace of mind that it’s correctly installed and the lights assure you the car seat is properly attached.
    The 2 recline options meant that as my daughter was able to use her cabriofix until 2 years old, she was able to sit up higher and see out of the window.
    Only downside is that after the infant carrier stage it is only compatible with the forward facing pearl rather than the rear facing. Had I known at the time of purchase about the safety aspects of extended rear facing I would have bought the 2 way fix base and then the rear facing pearl. However it has still been good value for money as we’ve used it for the infant carrier for 2 children now.

    I wouldn't use my babies car seat without this. It makes the seat look so much more secure and it is easy to fix the car seat on to a base, and it makes a noise when the seat is secured properly so you get piece of mind that they are as safe as they can be. When removing the isofix from the car the buttons can be a little awkward but if you are leaving the base in the same car it won't be a problem and it will only take an extra few minutes if swapping cars so it isn't a major problem.

    <p>The Maxi-Cosi FamilyFix base can be fitted to the isofix points in a flash. The <a href="https://www.consobaby.co.uk/pebble-car-seat-maxi-cosi.html">Pebble infant car seat</a> can then be clicked on and off in seconds, making it stress free and secure when you’re in a hurry. No messing around with seat belts in the rain, this base was a lifesaver with my first child.</p>
    <p>Pros:<br />It’s so easy to fit, once you’ve done it a couple of times it takes seconds to do, meaning you can easily switch it between cars if needed.<br />The Pebble or CabrioFix infant carriers can be used with it, clicking into place with a reassuring beep and also giving a green light indicator for your peace of mind, so you know your baby is secure.<br />It fits the MaxiCosi Pearl when your child grows out of the infant carrier.</p>
    <p>Cons:<br />Doesn’t support rear-facing once your baby has grown out of the baby carrier- so you’ll need to check your child is the right age and weight to forward face.<br />Doesn’t come with the seat belt option if your car doesn’t have isofix points.</p>
    <p>Verdict:<br />This is a really useful bit of kit and saves you time and hassle when putting your baby in the car in their infant carrier. However, it doesn’t support rear facing as your child grows, so I would recommend getting the Maxi-Cosi 2-Way Family Fix base instead.</p>

    I would definitely recommend this product. I used this family isofix with the maxi cosi pebble. It’s easy to install and there are three lights at the front that tell you you have installed it correctly. The car seat slots into the base easily and detatches just as easily with a pull of a lever. I couldn’t imagine having to attatch the car seat with the old seat belt method! My only criticism of this product is there are these buttons at the side that are fiddly, I spent awhile playing around with them before I figured out how to get it to work.

    This is possibly the best product I have bought for the baby. I have both the Pebble and the Pearl car seats as we often babysit for an older family member as well as our own son. The other car seat we have also has an isofix base but I much prefer this one. You can swap the seats out easily and it makes it far simpler to nip into a shop with a sleeping baby and safely get them back into the car.

    I never had an isofix with my first child so when I was informed about this with my second I thought let’s have a go! I was shocked by the price but decided to go for it! It’s amazing! No messing about with seatbelts, double checking it’s done right and tight enough! You literally click it and it makes a sound and goes green if correct! There are 3 green lights... one for the isofix, one for the stand connecting to floor and one for the actually car seat! The light goes red and constantly beeps if it is not fitted correctly, depending on which light changes red shows you what is wrong. Making it is easy to fix! It gives you that extra security and reassurance too on journeys that your baby is safe! Great product!!!

    Managed to get my car seat and base for £50 for both off a family friend as they’d only used it in their car as spare. Easy to install, very east to put car seat on it and extra security with the lights and beep telling you car seat is in securely and correctly. There’s is also a beep letting you know base is in correctly or not. Godsend for getting baby in car if it’s rainjng so no faffing with seat belts etc, just lift car seat off pushchair and in car into base in seconds. Dead easy to remove base if needing to use car seat and base in another car. Would definitely recommend. I have just switched to a older seat but have chosen one with the isofix built in as I like the extra security it offers.

    The family fix isofix is simple to fit, it lets you know when it’s securely fitted with a bleep and the 3 lights showing at the front which is good reassurance for a parent/Carer. I would highly recommend this isofix base. The only thing I found was because I have a small car it pushes the passenger seat forward a lot to fit it in leaving less leg room for long journeys however a lot of isofix bases do this.

    This maxi cosi product is brilliant. Not only is it reasonable priced but it can be used with the ingant car seat and the toddler car seat so there is no need to have to buy another base.
    The 3 light system identifies easily if the base has been fitted correctly providing reassurance for parents regarding their childs safetly.

    The neat design means that if not fitted in car it cam be easily stored in the house without taking up lots of room (valuable when you fond out how much stuff a baby actually requires 😂)

    I really don't know what I would do with out this base! We currently have a 3 door car and this base makes putting baby into the car so much easier. Once installed all you do is place the carseat on the base and wait for the green lights then push a button too release.

    After lots of research we settled on this isofix base to go with our Cabriofix. I haven’t yet used it (baby due any day now) but it was really easy to fix in and adjust whilst heavily pregnant! I had to move it from one side of the car to the other as driver’s seat was knocking it which made the alarm/lights go. Great to see the 3 light system working so well. It was really easy to pop out and put in the other side of the car.

    This base is so quick and easy to use I can transfer from car to car with ease because of its strong isofix points. My mums car didn’t have isofix points but I was easily able to attach the base woth the seat belt and it felt so strong and safe!! Only problem is is that when the car seat is on you have to use 2 hands to remove the car seat. By pressing a button with one hand and removing either car seat with the other. Quite difficult when you have shopping or a changing bag in the other hand! Over all it was a good purchase and great value for money

    I invested in one of these for our second baby. Doing the school run filled me with dread twice a day until I got this. No more faffing with seatbelts and in saved me about 20 mins a day! When we went away in our caravan we had to take the base out as otherwise we lost a footwell for the dog to travel in which was a pain as it meant the seatbelts had to be used again and I found un-installing it a challenge sometimes as I’m quite small and it’s heavy. But it was a godsend, but if they could remove the tension rod to free up the footwell, this product would be amazing!

    I’d never had an isofix base with my first two children and we were moving town and knew I would have to drive on the school run everyday so we decided to get one.
    It is so easy to use and install and makes school runs a dream. No more fumbling about with the seatbelt, just pop the seat on the base and it’s secure.

    I love this product. Makes putting the baby's car seat in and out the car nice and easy. There's no faffing around trying to connect a seatbelt and the lights on the display show when everything's connected correctly.
    Once you know how to install the base it is so easy to put into and take out of the car, however, it is quite heavy so I can't imagine anyone would want to do this very often. I also had a few problems extending the leg but once you know how to do it it gets easier.

    I love the convenience of the clip on car seat base however do find it heavy and bulky. It is much easier to manoeuvre the car seat in and out with the knowledge there is 100% safety every time. Trying to move the item from the car can be difficult but once in you can forget about it.
