    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.

    Absolutely love our family fix isofix base, we have 2 for both our boys and they are super easy to use and look good too.

    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.

    I really like this product, it's great for quickly putting car seat in and out, especially handy when it's raining. It also reclines which I found really useful when my daughter was bigger.
    The side slider plastic cover came off which was annoying, but didn't affect the safety of the product and I am planning to still use it for my second child

    This isofix base is easy to fit and use in my car and the maxi cosy website is great for finding out which car seats and bases fit your car.
    The only downside is that there is a loud rattle from the isofix base. I have been told by maxi cosy that this is normal so it’s more of an annoyance than anything.

    This is an investment not to be missed. It make getting the car seat in and out of the car so much easier. The isofix base is very secure and also has a leveller to show if it is fitted correctly.

    The car seat is extremely secure when fitted to the isofix base. A lot more than just a seat belt

    This is amazing and quick and easy don’t have to worry about the seat belt clips in, so easily too. My base has been used through the family and we have all found it so much easier to use and more convenient. The only down side to this item is it quite a squeeze with a two
    Door car but still so much easier then a seat belt!

    Our family fix base has seen us through the first year of our babies life in her baby car seat and now as she’s going into her bigger car seat. Easy to operate and super safe- I am glad we brought this! Makes getting in and out of the car so much easier than having to strap and unstrap each time with the seat belt!

    I loved using this product as it's really convenient and takes the hassle away from always adjusting seatbelts. It's got a lighting system which is great to let you know of installed correctly and stays in place when on the move. Car seat clicks into place so you know it's seating correctly. I will definitely be using it again when my baby arrives.

    I bought this iso fix base to use with my Maxi Cosi car seat. I was reccomended to use this as it is very safe for baby. Although it is expensive I believe it is worth the money as safety for my baby in the car is very important. It was very easy to set up in the car and then very easy to place the car seat on top of it as it clicked quickly in to place. The car seat feels very safe and secure on top of the iso fix base. The base also has 3 handy lights on it to let you know if it set up correctly or not and if it is not then you know you need to fiddle with it a bit before it is secure. It will also beep at you to let you know it is safe. A disadvantage to this seat is that it is quite expensive and when your child reaches the age of 4 and you get a different type of car seat if you wish to carry on using an iso fix base you will need to buy a different one as this one wouldn’t fit. Overall I am very happy with the purchase, I think it is worth the money and I would recommend it to others.

    I purchased this for my daughter to make getting her in and out the car easier it takes less than 2 seconds to attach and detach the car seat onto the iso fix, this is amazing especially if you have older children and need to make getting in and out the car as quick and easy as possible, I’d definitely recommend to all parents or parents to be, it’s definitely worth the money as the next stage car seat clicks right in as well not just the new born car seats like most other isofixs

    I have used this base for my 3 children and childminding children too. It’s so easy to fit, going from my car to grandparents cars is simple and not stressful either - it’s lovely knowing that they are safely in a car and not worrying about seat belts etc as it is literally just a click. The sound and makes sure you know they are in properly and the base is fitted perfectly. If it isn’t it keeps beeping.
    I thought it was expensive to be honest but now Havering so much use out of it and even just the peace of mind it is well worth it.

    Absolute must have!

    When choosing this base i wanted it to be used enough for when the child gets old enough. They have lights and sound indications to let you know if the car seat is connected correctly. It will bring up all 3 lights when connected. So if baby was asleep i wouldn't have to shake it to make sure its connected i would hear the noise and lights. Its very re assuring and peace of mind.

    Fabulous piece of safety equipment. I like the audible alarm to let me know the bar has moved and it isn’t 100% safe. Although can be tricky getting it perfect and to stop alarming. The seat (I have a pebble
    With it) can catch when removing it from the base which can be annoying if it wakes little one up. There seems to be a knack to getting it in easily too but once mastered its super easy.
    I like he peace of mind I get from it knowing that if there’s an issue mid journey it will alert me
