Here is our review of the Britax Romer Dualfix Car Seat.
The award-winning DUALFIX combines eye-catching design with state-of-the-art safety technology. Its 360-degree rotation means parents can choose when to switch their child from rearward to forward facing. Its host of safety features ensure a safe journey from newborn to four years.
What’s in the box?
The box contains the car seat and various instructions, along with some ISOFIX clips.
A Closer Look
Fitting the Car Seat
The Dulafix comes with some ISOFIX insert guides.
You pull on the cord to extend the locking arms
Then you slide the seat into the ISOFIX brackets.
Then you push the seat making sure it is fitted snuggly.
The next step is to position the support leg.
Once the support leg is locked in the correct position you will see a green band.
To how you just how easy it is, Britax produced a short video:
Using the Car Seat
Once the Dualfix is securely fitted in your car, to use it you just have to press a button and then rotate the seat so that you can get perfect access to it.
Then you put your baby in the seat, making sure he or she is securely fastened and comfortable, then you press the button again and rotate the seat back. It really is as simple as that.
The Dualfix car seat is designed for newborn babies all the way up to 4 years old, so you should get quite a lot of use out of it.
Having a car seat that can both turn to make it easier to place the baby in the seat and remove the baby from the seat, along with the ability to change the direction of the seat as the baby grows up is great.
Once you have locked the Dualfix into your car’s ISOFIX connections the seat is very secure. I found it a bit of a pain fitting the Dualfix into my car because it was quite fiddly. The Dualfix is very large and rather heavy and leaning into the back of a car to fit it isn’t the easiest job in the world, but I got there eventually. Britax do provide some extenders to help you connect the seat to your cars ISOFIX but in my case I actually found them harder (not everyone needs the clips though).
To ensure that the Dualfix will work with your car, Britax have a list of cars and their various models so you can easily tell if the Dualfix is compatible. It is worth checking this out before you purchase the seat.
Turning the seat was very simple – just a push of a button and then you turn it. The Dualfix felt very secure and the baby was very protected. There are both side impact protection and various pads on the seat to help provide added protection.
I can highly recommend the Dualfix if you want a high quality, safe and secure car seat that is very easy to use and is one that you can get 4 years of use out of!
The Britax Romer Dualfix car seat is available now for around £350, but as usual look around for the best deal.
