Fixing maxicosi seat to base

Hi
I've recently purchased a maxicosi rear facing car seat and easybase from seperate places, with no instructions.

However, I'm unable to figure how the seat locks onto the base, I think something may be missing?

I see 2 lots of clips on the base that look like they take a bar, but there is nothing under the seat.

Any suggestions????

Hi,

If you have a Cabrio Fix carseat, underneath the carseat should be two silver metal bars that slot into the base, if these are not on the carseat then you have the Cabrio model which is not compatible with the base.

I hope this helps.

Combi instruction


It depends on your car seat. Follow your instruction manual for your child seat and your car. Not all seating positions have tether anchors.
"Rear-facing only" seats do not tether (these have a separate base and carrier)
"Rear-facing convertible" seats may tether.
"Forward-facing" seats usually tether (some MUST tether).

My cabriofix is stuck to the easybase 2. The handle does not seem to work. Do you have any ideas?


Hi,

The handle is not any part of removing the CabrioFix from the Easybase 2 apart from to lift the carseat away from the base. You need to press the grey / silver buttons on either side of the carseat and hold them down as you lift the carseat from the base to remove it.

If you're still unable to do so we would advise you to take the product to your retailer with proof of purchase for them to investigate further.

Maxi cosi cabriofix stuck


Hi

The description provided is how the EasyBase will appear when a carseat is NOT on it. The indicators will go green only when a carseat is correctly locked in place on the base and the grey handle will go in.

Hi, I would like to ask a few questions: 1. Does the Maxi Cosi Cabrio car seat fits only to the isofix base, or can it be installed to the mico base as well ? If it does, the only difference is that the...


Good Morning

The Maxi Cosi CabrioFix can be fitted without any base, using the 3 point seatbelt: With the EasyFix base, using IsoFix points or 3 point seatbelt: With the EasyBase and EasyBase 2 using the 3 point seatbelt. It cannot be used with the Mico carseat base as they are not designed to be used together. The Mico is available in US and does not meet UK standards: Likewise the CabrioFix does not meet US standards so they should never be used together.

If you don't know how to fit the carseat into your vehicle using the 3 point seatbelt please check your user manual, or download a replacement copy at www.maxi-cosi.com before use go to an authorised retailer to check it is correctly installed as this will affect the performance of the carseat.

The Maxi Cosi CabrioFix can be fitted using the EasyFix base (IsoFix or seatbelt fitted) the EasyBase and EasyBase 2 (fitted with seatbelt only) or the FamilyFix base (IsoFix only). If you do not have IsoFix points you need either an EasyBase or EasyBase 2 to be fitted with seatbelt.

What's the difference between Easybase (non isofix) and Easyfix base (isofix)? can I use the second one for both maxi cosi cabriofix and car seat up to 3.5 year?


Hi,

The Easy Fix Base is used for cars which have isofix points in their car. The Easy Base fits into your car using the seatbelt.
Both of these bases can be used ONLY for the CabrioFix Carseat and cannot be used for the next stage seat (Group 1).

I hope this helps.

Which car seat fits the Quinny zapp


Hi, all the maxicosi carseats will fit onto the zapp using the adaptors that come with the zapp pushchair (but not the newly rebranded bebe loola).

The difference between the maxi cosi cabriofix and the ordinary cabrio or citi is that the cabriofix can be attached to the maxicosi in-car seat base (easybase or easyfix), whereas the cabrio and citi can only be fitted in the car using the cars seatbelts, they wont attach to the incar base. Hope I have helped a bit x
