Since when there are child seats?

Child seats test

As early as 1959 A Swedish engineer patented the three-point seat belt for cars, which is used worldwide today. Only four years later, the Upper Franconian brand Storchenmuhle introduced “Nicki”, the first child seat for cars before. Seatbelt became compulsory in Germany only in 1976. The first reboarder, a seat that could be mounted on the back seat against the direction of travel, came onto the market in 1989. With the popular Isofix system, child seats can be securely locked to the seat of many cars since 2001.

Child seat obligation and road traffic regulations

In Germany, section 21 of the German Road Traffic Act (StVO) stipulates that children under the age of twelve who are less than 1.50 meters tall may only ride in special restraint systems, i.e. child seats or at least booster seats in cars. The 3-point belt integrated in the car is not sufficient. This obligation expires as soon as one of the two mentioned criteria is fulfilled. Parents should always keep child safety seat requirements in mind.

Which child seat is suitable for which age?

Newborns and infants love to be carried on their mom’s belly or taken for a walk by dad in the stroller. Every now and then, however, the car has to get in on the act- and the youngest move into a so-called baby car seat. The is strapped as a reboarder, so against the direction of travel of the car on the back seat. Tested and safe, these shells are designed for babies who weigh no more than 9 kilograms. To protect the spine of the little ones, the baby car seat should be sorted out at the latest when the little passenger can sit without assistance.

In many cases, this works even before the child’s first birthday. A child seat of group 0+/1/2/3 that grows with the child can then be converted easily. Otherwise the junior moves into a child seat of the group 1 or 1/2/3. Child car seats are divided into different classes or even groups. They serve as a guide. Decisive are often not the weight or age, but the size of the child. An overview of which car seat group is ideal for whom is given below in the guide.

Test marks and seals: How can I tell that a child seat is safe??

In Germany, the standards for child seats are currently approved. Thereby i-Size or also UN ECE Reg is oriented to the size of the child. 129- the latest test standard on the height of the child. The further valid standards UN ECE Reg. 44/03 and UN ECE Reg. 44/04 divide the groups into defined weight classes. At least one of these three standards must be clearly visible as a test seal on the child seat.

Since 2008, children up to the age of twelve may only be transported in child seats certified with test seals. Otherwise, a warning fine may be levied.

In addition to the R44 standard, the i-Size standard has been in effect for several years. i-Size is primarily concerned with rearward-facing driving with children up to 15 months of age. The i-Size test seal is now mandatory for reboarders. Important: The new i-Size standard is not based on weight, but on the size of the child. The decisive factor here is the size range that the manufacturer himself defines for his seat. As a rule, children up to a height of about 105 centimeters can be transported against the direction of travel.

Which child seat group fits my child?

Which child seats are allowed?

Ordering a child seat

In the interests of road safety, children in Germany may only be transported in child seats that have been tested and awarded a corresponding test seal. In the event of a traffic accident, the strictly monitored safety package of the seats saves the little ones from serious injuries. Child seats must absorb the immense forces of a collision as well as possible and dissipate them via the material.

For the above reasons, parents should look for the test seal with the following information when buying a child seat.

  1. European child seat test standard (for example ECE-R44)
  2. Approved use: Vehicle-specific or universal
  3. body weight (for example 9-18 kg)
  4. European mark- E1 stands for “Approved in Germany”
  5. Test number (for example 04 30 10 27)
  6. Manufacturer of the child seat

What should I look for when buying a child seat??

You should pay attention to this

The fastening system: As a rule, child seats can be fixed in the car with the 3-point harness system integrated in the car or the Isofix system, which is now widespread. Some models also offer both options and can therefore be placed and secured both in Isofix-capable cars and in older cars that are not prepared for this click system. You can tell whether your car is compatible with the Isofix system by the two metal eyelets hidden between the seat and backrest. Some models have small plastic caps on the eyelets.

Weight: The weight of a child seat initially says little about the quality of a child seat. Group 1/2/3 seats are usually significantly heavier than a follow-on group 2/3 seat, which usually only consist of a backrest and a seat cushion. It is obvious that these can be more conveniently built from the parents’ car to the grandparents’ car. In some cases they weigh less than 5 kilograms, while seats that grow with the child can weigh up to 12 kilograms.

Comfort: Comfort also plays an important role when buying a child seat. If the child doesn’t feel comfortable in the new seat, parents won’t have much fun, especially on long car trips. The backrest, headrest, and harnesses should be able to be adjusted individually to fit the child’s size. In the best case, all moving parts can be reached and adjusted with just one hand and from the front passenger seat. Sometimes the ventilation system also plays a role in the child seat, so that the child sits comfortably and does not sweat too much.

Cleaning: Child seats don’t have it easy: cookie crumbs, greasy chocolate hands, sweat and apple spritzer are just a few things that make life difficult for the covers. Crumbs can still be easily shaken off or removed with a small suction cup. In the vast majority of cases, the covers of child seats can be removed. Depending on the manufacturer, the washing machine can be used at 30 degrees Celsius. In some cases hand washing is recommended.

The accessories: Most manufacturers of child seats have useful accessories in their range, which are available separately. These include the following parts, among others:

  • Seat belt pad
  • Headrest and neck support to protect the neck muscles
  • Sun protection for the window or a sun canopy
  • Protective mat for the back seat
  • Seat reducer
  • Cup or snack holder

How to adjust the child seat correctly?

Adjusting the child seat correctly

No matter how long the tour is: Before it starts, the child seat must be installed correctly and adapted to the size of the child. Take the time you need for this and take a look at the instruction manual if you are unsure. If the child seat is permanently installed in the car- Often green symbols indicate this the movable elements must be adjusted. Depending on the model are:

  • Headrest
  • Backrest
  • Seat
  • Safety belt

What are well-known brands and manufacturers of child seats?

In Germany alone, specialist retailers offer child seats from well over 20 manufacturers Including large and popular, but also small, less well-known brands. Some of these are:

  • Britax Romer- known especially for its Dualfix and Kidfix models
  • Cybex
  • Maxi-Cosi
  • BeSafe
  • Chicco
  • ABC Design
  • Safety 1st
  • Child power
  • Stork Mill

In addition to those mentioned, there are numerous other brands that offer tested and safe child seats. As already mentioned several times, design and brand should take a back seat to comfort and safety when buying a child seat.

Where to buy a child seat?

Advantages

Child seats are available in baby stores and department stores. From time to time, individual models are also offered as promotional items in large supermarkets. In the specialist store, parents can touch the seats of various manufacturers, test them in the car and let the child try them out once. For reasons of space alone, however, the selection on the market is limited. The range of products on offer on the Internet is much more varied, and space is not a factor here. Here reviews of other buyers can be helpful with questions or doubts. In addition, online stores for many models can offer sometimes significantly lower prices.

What does a good child seat cost??

The more versatile a child seat can be used, the more expensive it usually is. No-name manufacturers offer their seats of the group 1/2/3 partly for less than 100 euros. With seats of well-known marks up to 250 euro and more become due. Important: Not the price, but the test seal and the comfort should be the important purchase arguments. If in doubt, test reports, guides and reviews from parents who have already found the right seat will also help.

May I buy a child seat used?

Many children outgrow their newly purchased infant carriers or group 1 child seats after only a few months of use. From the parents such seats are then gladly used offered to other families. If you are looking for a used child seat, you should make sure that it bears one of the three relevant test seals. To this end, it should be closely examined for signs of wear, cracks and other damage before the deal is made perfect. Find out from the previous owner whether the child seat has been accident-free and what the situation is with the side protection. If this can not be clarified with certainty, you should keep your hands off the second-hand seat.

Is there a child seat test by Stiftung Warentest??

Question mark

In May 2021, the experts from Stiftung Warentest last put child car seats under the microscope. As you can see here in detail, 26 new child seats and infant carriers were tested and evaluated this time. You will also discover the test winner in the child seat test under the link. In recent years, a total of 349 child seats have passed through the experienced hands of Stiftung Warentest’s testers. According to Stiftung Warentest, 239 of these models are available. The test, which focuses primarily on accident safety and pollutants, is updated on an ongoing basis.

As the biggest disadvantage compared to the other models, the product testers criticize the partly bulky body of child seats of the group 1/2/3 that grow with the child. This leads to problems with haptics. In addition, many shells turned out to be very bulky during installation. However, the all-rounders hardly received any deductions for this. For the smallest ones Stiftung Warentest recommends the handy and practical baby seats. They have a carrying handle and can be carried comfortably from the home to the car and back again, together with the baby.

The testers rated positively the service of some manufacturers who offer free repair under warranty. According to Stiftung Warentest, whether the child seat is equipped with Isofix or not did not play a role in the overall evaluation. The testers paid the most attention when looking for the test winner:

  • Safety
  • Stability
  • Exposure to harmful substances
  • User comfort

Who is the test winner in the child seat test byoko-Test?

Child seat comparison

The last child car seat test byoko-Test is from 2018. The eco-testers initially recommended placing the children in the middle of the back seat, if possible. Reason: Here they are farthest away from a possible point of impact. However, this is often not possible because only a few cars are equipped with Isofix or a 3-point belt at this point. This is probably one of the reasons why the ADAC advises fitting the child seat behind the front passenger. Statistically, the driver’s side is more often affected in accidents. In addition, children can get in and out of the seat on the side facing away from the road, independently of traffic.

Three child seats were awarded the rating “good” by the eco-testers From. In the overall assessment, the test winner trio was particularly convincing in the areas of safety and ergonomics. There were deductions here only with the practicability.

As problematic judged oko test with some models the contents materials of the processed materials. An area to which the experienced experts attach particular importance. This time, they also found procyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, or PAHs for short, in individual components and recommend washing the new covers before they are used.

Is there a child seat test by the ADAC??

Child seat comparison

For many years, one of the most important guides and points of reference for greater safety on our roads has been the Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobilclub, or ADAC for short.

In their tests, the professionals at the ADAC don’t just examine the processed materials. Their main focus is on how safe and resilient the child seats are. In elaborate crash tests, the ADAC tests, among other things, side impact protection and all-round protection.

The ADAC provides information about the latest child seat tests on its topic pages. Accordingly, 23 models were put to the test in 2018. The ADAC awarded 17 seats the grade “Good”, two seats were rated “Satisfactory”, one was rated “Poor” and two were rated “Unsatisfactory”. According to ADAC experts, this was the first time a seat with an airbag system had been tested.

Those who want to see the rating of current child seat models in detail can search the ADAC website by year of release or test year. Additional search criteria can also be filtered, such as impact shields, rear-facing child seats, reclining and resting positions, or attached two-point harnesses.

Another child seat test by the ADAC dates from November 2019. The experts put a total of 18 different models to the test. Twelve child seats scored “good”- ADAC rated six of them as “satisfactory. Two seats with too high a pollutant load failed the test.

The latest ADAC child seat test dates from October 2021. The testers took 26 models under the microscope. Pleasing result: 17 child seats went with the predicate “good” by the goal. But one model also failed. The detailed test results can be found at this link.
