Maxi-Cosi do not produce adaptors for the carseats to fit to this manufacturers chassis. We would advise contacting the manufacturer of the chassis to discuss availability of adaptors and how to purchase.
With any carseat we would recommend a physical fitting prior to purchase to ensure it can be safely installed in your vehicle. As the seat was purchased from Argos we would recommend that you make contact Argos for fitting assistance.
Please go to www.maxi-cosi.com and ensure you are on the UK page. Then select the carseat you require fitting instructions for and you can download a replacement manual which shows directions and also there is a video available for how to fit with seatbelt.
The horizontal or lap section of the three point seatbelt should be placed over the foot end of the carseat and held in place under the two blue clips either side of the seat. The diagonal section of the seatbelt should go around the back of the carseat through the blue clip at the back.
Ensure the seatbelt is tensioned fully to prevent excessive movement.
If you're still not satisfied it is fitted correctly do not use it and return it to your retailer with proof of purchase and ask them to show you how to fit it properly.
Stores had recalled a Remi 2 Travel Basic Car Seat as a precautionary measure.There is a risk that the car seat may not provide the required restraint if the seat straps can be removed and then rethreaded. However this seat should strap in with the lap strap.
yeah i had a cabrio and just fitted it in car with the seat belt the part of the seat belt that would go around your waist goes over the front of the carseat and over were the baby would be sitting there is clips at either side just below the carryhandle put the seat belt through them then put the part of the seat belt that would go around your neck round the back there should be another clip in the middle of the back above the storage part if you put the seat belt throgh it then clip the buckle in and pull tight the car seat should be secure hope i explained it easy to follow.
Although I do not know this seat, if it is a UK model you should have blue stickers located where the belt will go. Typically the European seats do fit as you suggest, lap belt over the childs legs (pull firm at that point) then the should belt over and behind babys head (pull firm again at that point). Bear in mind that the seat does not have to be rock solid, but the weight of baby will make this feel more secure and remember that if there should be any kind of impact, the seat belt is designed to lock off, hence how this works.
