Group 1 seats!

“IS there a difference in testing and quality?”
A reblogg of a friend of mine’s exelent information post on Group 1 seats and the difference between ALL the testing that we do here in Europe. She also brilliantly explains why, in car seats as with a lot of other products, you really do get what you pay for, and cheap is not necessarily good. 🙂

Introduction

A group 1 car seat is designed to restrain a child in the event of an impact.  They normally have a 5-point harness and are designed to hold the child in the seat and spread the force through the shoulder straps, hip and crotch straps.  It is law for every child to be restrained in the car in a suitable child restraint and there are very few exceptions.

Exceptions:

Taxi

Emergency journey (not shops or school!)

In both cases the child must the wear the adult seat belt, if available.
