Child Car Seats

Child Car Seat Fitting and Compatibility

This webpage brings together information from manufacturers and retailers on whether a particular child car seat will fit in your vehicle and how you should install it.

Below are a number of child car seat manufacturers. Click the manufacturer of the seat you are considering using to view information on whether the child car seat will be compatible with your vehicle and links to film clips showing how to fit it.

For ease, the seats have been grouped into rearward facing, forward facing and booster seats. This means that combination seats (e.g. those that can be used rearward and forward facing) will appear in more than one category per table.

If you have found a child car seat installation video or compatibility checker that we have not included on this page, please contact info@childcarseats.org.uk.


BeSafe

Both compatibility and installation advice for BeSafe seats can be found on the product page for each seat. Click the link next to the seat to find the fitting film and compatibility advice (you may need to scroll to the bottom of the page) and click 'video manual' for installation videos or the 'car list' to find out if the seat is compatible with your vehicle.
