    This isofix base is fab. It is heavy but once it’s on the car you don’t need to move it again. The car seat literally sits on it and locks into place. It made my life so much easier than using a seat belted car seat

    The base is great. It works for the next size up car seat, the maxicosi Pearl. You can pull the Pebble seat up so they are more vertical or horizontal. It sits neatly behind either driver or passenger seat. The lights on the front and the beeping to tell you if it's fitted correctly are so very convenient for safety assured.

    This base is amazing & is so so much easier than using a seatbelt with a carseat. It has light and sound indicators which are reassuring, particularly when driving a long way, or using the car seat in the dark, where using a seatbelt would be difficult. The base is easy to install into the car and again, has a light indicator to show it is correctly installed. The base is also simple to remove and stores easy as it is slim. I love how the base can be used with multiple car seats, including different stages. Meaning that one base can be used with 2 compatible car seats (baby carrier and child seat).

    Makes placing car seat in and out of the car really easy and you don’t need to mess around trying stretch the seat belt over the car seat. It’s especially handy when baby is still small and your car fits to your pram and you take it in and out multiple times. I love this product also because when my baby moves up to the next car seat it can also be fitted on to this base. The only downside is if the front seat is too far back you can’t clip the car seat in so has to be on the passenger side of the driver has long legs!

    Brilliant product, although pricey it lasts for years it ensures car seat is fitted to the car correctly and it has lights that tell you when this is done correctly. We have 2 of these (we have twins) and they are really simple.

    This base is very easy to install into the car and uninstall if needed. There are lights and noises indicating whether the base and seat are secure for added peace of mind. The car seat comes on and off easily for convenience. There is also the added bonus of being able to tilt the seat forward which would be handy for a baby with reflux.

    I'm very happy with this product.

    Simple and easy to slot it. I like the fact it makes a noise to let you know that it's clipped in properly. It's fits nicely in our little car and makes life a lot easier without the hassle of the seatbelt

    As we have 2 card we needed 2 bases which was expensive however totally worth it. The e green lights indicates your baby is as safe as can be in their car seat which makes you more at ease. If the bases isnt installed properly then it will bleep quite loud and flash red. It is easy to move from car to car and just makes you feel at ease. 100% recommend

    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!

  • 4.63/5

    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!!!
