How to choose the right car seat for children 15-36 kg?
A car seat for children 15-36 kg is called a car seat for elderly people. It will be perfect for kids who are four years old and will serve you until they turn 12.
What distinguishes car seats for older children? First of all, a child sitting in this type of seat will be buckled in by car seat belts for the first time. Additional ISOFIX fixation allows the seat to rock less and move sideways in the event of a side-impact, reducing the potential strain on the head. In the case of a frontal collision, it reduces the stress on the abdomen and hips.
The basic function of 15-36 kg car seats is to ensure that the belt runs along the child’s body so that the hips, shoulders, and torso are protected. So, the child sits at the right height, and the head is between special covers. Car seat belts should pass under the armrests.
Comfort, regulation, and safety – seats for older children
When looking at seats for older children, pay attention to the possibility of adjusting the headrest, which will enable systematic adaptation of the seat to the growing child. Thanks to the extended, ergonomically contoured backrest, your child will travel comfortably. With the seat belt guide included in the Sparco Kids car seat models, the correct positioning of the belt when using the headrest booster seat will be quick and easy.
The shape of the seat is crucial. It’s not only about adjusting the parameters to the rear seat in your car, but most of all about the correct positioning of the child’s body. Remember that every toddler is different and, despite the same weight, may have different height and build. This is why measuring the seat with your child is the best way to buy a 15-36 kg car seat that you can choose.
Note that the lap belt should run flat over the surface of your child’s thighs without putting pressure on the abdomen. The shoulder belt, on the other hand, is away from the edge of the shoulder, passing exactly through the middle of the sternum.
