Are ISOFIX Car Seats Safer?

This article introduces what is the ISOFIX interface. Knowing what ISOFIX is, it is not difficult to understand why you should use an ISOFIX device.

The ISOFIX interface solves the problem of users not knowing how to install it.

Each manufacturer has different ways of fixing the safety seat with the vehicle's three-point safety belt. Some are easier and some are more complicated. If you don't study and practice carefully, it's easy to get confused. Many buyers are still afraid of how to install it. ISOFIX solves this problem. ISO is the International Organization for Standardization. Every manufacturer adopts the same standards, the installation method is unified, and it is simple and convenient. Generally, there will be no mistakes in use.

ISOFIX uses a metal rod to connect the safety seat to the car, different from seat belt fixation

In the event of a collision, the seat belt-fixed seat will move forward, but the distance is very small about 2 centimeters. ISOFIX basically does not move, and the stability will be higher.
