FAQs
I do not have IsoFix anchor points in my car. Can I have them installed?
This is usually not possible because the IsoFix anchors are almost always installed during production in the factory and are attached to the chassis of the car. However, there are a number of car makes that have been offering the IsoFix system for a number of years as an “option”. In these cars, the assembly points for the anchors are already integrated into the bottom of the car body. Audi and Volvo, for example, offer this option. Talk to your car dealer for more information.
Is IsoFix safer than installing with a car seat belt?
If installed properly, a Bébé Confort car seat is the safest in its class also when installed by car seat belt. Child car seats using regular seat belts though are regularly installed and used incorrectly. With ISOFIX the risk of incorrect installation is very small and most car seats with ISOFIX show correct installation with visible indicators. Therefore it is fair to say that ISOFIX car seats are safer then car seats installed by car seat belt.
What is IsoFix?
ISOFIX is an international standardized fitting system, which provides the safest, easiest and quickest way to install a child car seat correctly without the need of vehicle seat belts. The name ISOFIX stands for ISO (International Standardization Organization) plus FIX (Fixation). ISOFIX car seats make use of two standard attachment points located at the base of the seat, plus an anti-tipping forward device: either a support leg or top tether. From 2006 all new cars are equipped with ISOFIX, and ISOFIX is also fitted in a large number of car brands built prior to 2006. Find out more about ISOFIX.
Can the Bébé Confort FamilyFix base be installed in any car?
No, the Bébé Confort FamilyFix can only be installed in cars equipped with the IsoFix system. There are, however, some exceptions to this. See the “List of Car Makes” at www.bebe-confort.com.
Is it still safe to use the Bébé Confort FamilyFix if the batteries have gone dead?
Once installed, the safety is not affected by the batteries; the lights and/or sound serve only to indicate correct or incorrect installation. If the batteries have died, this feedback can no longer be given. So it is important to change the batteries in time. Batteries that are low in voltage or about to die are indicated by the LED light.
I have a FamilyFix base and Pearl. Do the next stage car seats Rodi XP or Air Protect fit onto the base?
No, they do not. With Group 2/3 car seats children are secured in the seat using the car seat belt, making it unnecessary to attach the seat to a base.

Is ISOFIX safer than installing with a car seat belt?
ISOFIX prevents incorrect installation of the car seat while with seat belt installed car seats are often installed incorrectly. The safety score though is not neccesarily better with ISOFIX installed child car seats.
