Installation

The Joie i-Base can be installed via two different methods: 3-point vehicle seat belt or ISOfix connectors. Each one is simple and easy to do in a matter of seconds, with indicators also letting you know when you’ve done it correctly. We love the i-Base because of this, it really gives it adaptability and versatility.

To install using your vehicle’s ISOfix points, first of all you need to release the adjustable leg support and ISOfix connectors. Next, push the ISOfix connectors into your ISOfix points until the indicators turn green – letting you know you have installed these correctly. Finally, fully extend the adjustable leg until this also turns green. You’re then ready to pop on your car seat and go!

Alternatively, you can use your vehicle’s 3-point seat belt to install the seat. This just involves threading the seat belt through the base then a locking off of the belt. It’s quick, easy and feels extremely sturdy.
