Time has arrived to move up from the baby seat to a Group 1.
We've been using a sunshine kids ultra mat for the last 8 months under a seatbelt fixed maxi-cosi. It has worked fine, secure and not a mark or dent on the tan leather!
Now we need the next stage chair, my first thoughts were a belt fitted chair again, keeping the ultra mat. (I'm confident we'll continue to get the fitting fully safe and secure, and we quite like the Britax King ts).
Before we decide, just having a look at isofix again, but bit concerned the mounting points are buried deep under the back cushions (not like the wife's A3, where they stick out proud). Don't fancy the idea of pushing sharp metal prongs past my unblemished leather!! We will need to swop the seat between cars, so it won't be a fit and forget!
From anyone's experience do the clips damage the seats?
One chair (britax) seems to come with plastic isofix 'locators' which clip on first, is this normal?
Also....what's with the 'top tether' on the seat back, do you have to use this? (some seats don't include one). Some seats have legs too??
Any tips, thoughts or recommendations appreciated,
PS. pleased to report wife is 'on message' about possible seat damage risk...alfisti in the making?
