Please click on a question to see its answers.

Q:Is this car seat considered safe? I wouldn’t want to sacrifice safety/quality for “cuteness”
A:To be sold in the US it has to pass pretty strict tests so yes- it’s safe.

Q:I have a pt cruiser and want to know if it’ll fit before I purchase.
A:It will fit…it’s not a huge car seat, but isn’t too small either. I bet if I tried, I could fit it in my moms Mini Cooper.

Q:Does it comes with base?
A:There is no base. It stays in the car. I used an infant carrier with a base first and just graduated to this once my baby reached 20 lbs. this car seat is nicely crafted .

Q:Can a seatbelt be used instead of a latch system?
A:Good afternoon. The APT convertible car seat may be installed using the LATCH system or your vehicle seat belts. For more information, you can reach us directly at [email protected] using “Amazon” as the email subject.

Q:I see that 2 out of 3 people have stated that this car seat meets Australian safety standards. Could anyone confirm that it is a definite “yes”?

A:This car seat is only designed for use in the US and meets/exceeds all standards for use in that region only. In order for a seat to meet Australian standards, you would need to ensure that it came directly from an Australian retailer/vendor and not from the US. Car seats purchased from US retailers will not meet Aus…

Q:Are the straps easily loosened? Can you do so from the front of the seat?

A:Everything about this car seat is wonderful. We love it, she has so much more room than any of her other carseats and we are about to turn her to face the front because of her long legs. The only issue we have is you really need to get something to rest her head on when she falls asleep. Because of it’s roominess, s…

Everything about this car seat is wonderful. We love it, she has so much more room than any of her other carseats and we are about to turn her to face the front because of her long legs. The only issue we have is you really need to get something to rest her head on when she falls asleep. Because of it’s roominess, she falls asleep and when her head goes to the side, there is no where to rest her head, so we have to place something beside her head because it tilts her head forward too much. If you have a younger infant, remember that sometimes if there head is hanging forward for too long a time, it does tend to make breathing harder. We simply watch her and then my daughter or I pull over and place something beside her head and set her up. we are currently looking for a head rest to put in it. It’s a nice car seat, we are happy with it!

A:I don’t know the dimensions but the car seat is really big

 

Q:How comfortable is this carseat? Doesn’t look like is has a lot of padding.. Also does the pillow move up?

A:We bought this and havnt used it yet. I got it on sale and when my daughter is big enough she will go in it. Feeling it it isn’t the most padded in the world but it seems, in my opinion, like it will be comfortable enough especially when she is a bit bigger.

It can face rear facing but we are using our current and very expensive one as long as possible.

Q:A review on babiesrus mentioned that the side impact was a bit flimsy. anyone have further info on that? can it be compared to a graco or safety 1st?

Hey Amanda! While each brand has different internal standards and methods of testing, all car seats, regardless of brand, must meet the same Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS 213). Currently, there are no standards for side impact protection. This being said, here at Dorel we pride ourselves in being an industry leader in the research and implementation of side impact protection. In conjunction with Kettering University, we have developed the “Dorel/Kettering Method” of side impact testing. Using our research data, NHTSA is working towards having side impact testing be required as part of the FMVSS 213. The APT 40 is no exception to our dedication to side impact protection. It has passed testing for “intruding door” and “containment” during a side impact collision. For more information, you can reach us directly at [email protected] using “Amazon” as the email subject.

Q:Someone mentioned that they would not use this as an everyday seat. Why or why not?
A:We use all the time my baby loves falls asleep in seconds

Q:I see that the car seat is air travel approved. What position is recommended for air travel?
A:I’m sorry, I’m not sure but if you are buying the product, I’d recommend against it. The positioning of the buckle leaves dents in my daughters thighs and the seat isn’t stable in rear facing.

Q:Can a base be bought for the car seat?
A:No, this is sold as one unit. The base is not separate.

Q:How can I install rear facing?
A:It is in a sitting position. I don’t know if your suppose to have it rear facing. But If so it would be like any other car seat. Same system like any other brand without a base. Hope that helps.

Q:The latch belt was way too short to attach to the anchors in our car, even with it extended all the way. Am I doing something wrong?
A:Good morning Janeen. There are a few factors that may play into the fit of the LATCH belt. We would be happy to help troubleshoot this for you. Please email us at [email protected], with “Amazon” as the email subject for further assistance.

 

Q:does this car sear meet the saftey requirements for canada?
A:Good morning Shanise. This is a U.S. model seat and does not meet Transport Canada regulations for use in Canada.

Q:Can i use it on a plane?
A:Hi Thomas, Yes. It can be installed on the air lines with just a lap belt as it has an internal harness. There should be a stick on the car seat with red writing that states that it is certified for motor vehicles and air craft. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

Q:does the mini mouse head rest and bow push your kids head forward too far?

A:The head rest & bow do not push the child’s head forward. It’s thin enough & is removable. BUT I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS FOR A DAILY CAR SEAT. It’s well made but the installation doesn’t allow the seat to sit completely upright. It’s tilted back more than I would like. If this was to be my child’s only car seat, I …

The head rest & bow do not push the child’s head forward. It’s thin enough & is removable. BUT I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS FOR A DAILY CAR SEAT. It’s well made but the installation doesn’t allow the seat to sit completely upright. It’s tilted back more than I would like. If this was to be my child’s only car seat, I would definitely look for something else.

The car seat should be reclined at at-least a 45 degree angle to protect your child’s neck in a collision. I have included the following information from an article about car seat installation. The recline angle of rear-facing infant car seats is designed to provide the smallest babies with enough recline to keep their head back and prevent it from falling forward and potentially obstructing their airway; but not too reclined to jeopardize the child in a crash. Usually the correct recline angle is somewhere between 30-45 degrees back from an upright starting point, depending on the seat. The correct car seat recline angle is especially important for preemies, who may already have respiratory difficulties and are often checked in their child restraint for breathing and oxygenation before they even leave the hospital. When it comes to getting the right angle, always refer to the child car seat manufacturer’s instructions, and install the seat at the recline angle designated by the instructions or the recline indicator on the seat itself. In many cases this may mean using the recline adjustment knob or other adjuster on the seat itself, or adding a rolled towel beneath the seat to reach that angle. Newer seats sometimes have “two-zone” recline indicators-one for younger babies and another that’s more upright as your baby grows-but referring to the instructions and periodically checking your child’s seat is critically important.

A:No you don’t see it,you have to attach it in order to see it

 

Q:How does the headrest attach?
A:I didn’t know how to attach it.

Q:Does this car seat work for newborn?
A:I would not use this with a newborn. You definitely want to buy more of a pumpkin seat because it lays back more to support the neck.

Q:Until what age do you recommend this car seat, I have a 2 and a 4 year old
A:I cant really go by age, how ever they can use it up 2 40 pounds.

Q:Why does it take so long to ship?
A:I received my order in about 3 days??

Q:Is there any way to rush this order?
A:I received this order in 3 days?? If you want it faster you can probably pay to rush it.

Q:We just received this carseat. There is only a top safety latch, is it missing the one that attaches to the bottom of the seat?

There should be one that runs through the bottom to attach it to the seat of the car (with a tightening lever similar to a s…

Are you talking about the harness straps or the anchoring latches to attach it to the car? I interpreted your question as the car-attaching straps. If that is the case, yes, you were shorted one. There should be one that runs through the bottom to attach it to the seat of the car (with a tightening lever similar to a seatbelt), and one that attaches to the top of the carseat that will remain unused if you are using it rear-facing.
