Product features and accessories

Seat

The seat material is soft and rugged, and the padding will give extra comfort for longer journeys. The soft padded cover can be removed for washing which will keep the seat looking newer for longer.

The Britax Kidfix SL SICT’s seat has a V-shaped backrest that ensures a perfect fit throughout your child’s development as the seat can be used for such a vast age group. Another feature we love is the height adjustable headrest this is another feature that allows the seat to grow with your child. The head rest also has a belt guide on the back of it that keeps the adult seat belt in the correct position over the child’s shoulder.

The seat’s back adjusts to the shape of the car seat it’s on which again is a great feature in maintaining comfort for the child as well as creating suitability for use with any car. It also has deep padded full side wings which provide optimum Side Impact Protection.

Protection

Always ahead with innovative safety ideas Britax has provided some great safety features within this seat.

The SICT in the name stands for Side Impact Cushion Technology. This provides superior side impact protection and is used on the side of the car seat closest to the door. The SICT feature is removable so that you can place it on the door side, depending on which side of the car the seat is being used on.

There are intuitively positioned seat belt guides that help to ensure the 3-point seatbelt is correctly over the child using the chair.

Installation

The seat comes with a soft latch ISOFIT system which allows the seat to be connected to the car’s ISOFIX anchorage points. We love the flexibility of the soft latch system, because it makes it easier to install when the anchorage points are difficult to reach. It also has seat belt guides, giving you peace of mind that the child is belted in correctly.

The Kidfix SL SICT has two installation options, still making it suitable if you don’t have ISOfix installation points on your car. You can use the standard 3 point seat belt or you can use the 3 point seat belt along with the ISOFIT points.

Installation using ISOfit points and 3 point seat belt

Fit the SICT on the side of the seat closest to the vehicle door, pull the cord at the front of the seat to release the ISOFIT latches. Afix the ISOFIT latches one-by-one to the ISOfix points and you will hear them click to assure you that they are fitted correctly. Pull the strap at the front of the seat again, this time to tighten the ISOFIT latches. The seat will adjust to match the vehicle seat shape. Place the diagonal seat belt in the red belt guide. Once your child is in the seat adjust the headrest to the height of your child’s shoulder. Pull the seat belt tight.
