Product review

Well sadly and excitedly, we purchased a new car seat for Chase today. He actually still fits in his infant carrier, but with me traveling to TN this weekend, we decided now was the time for a "big boy" seat. We found this seat and really liked the cutting edge technology. It's Safety 1st's Air Protect. Have you heard of it? used it? What do you think?

I will be very sad to tuck Chase's seat away in a closet but hopefully we will be taking it out soon for another little one!

(Chase's is black with red trim and also has a cup holder and snack holder)


What is Air Protect™ Technology?

Air Protect™ Technology is the most innovative safety feature ever offered in a car seat. It is a technology that protects our children at their most vulnerable – the head.

How does Air Protect™ work?

Through the precise release of air, Air Protect™ shields children from side impact intrusion and immediately reduces crash forces at the most critical spot: around a child’s head. Air Protect™ does this by extending ride-down, the amount of time it takes to slow a child’s movement in a crash.

How is Air Protect™ different?

1. Primary Focus on Head Protection

Air Protect™ Technology has been designed to defend against the biggest threat to children on the road today; side impact collisions. Side impact are by far the deadliest type of collision for children, accounting for one in three child fatalities; nearly all of which are caused by head trauma. The placement of Air Protect™ Technology on the car seat diverts crash forces away from a child’s head, the most vulnerable place in a side impact crash.

2. Superior Testing Methodology

The Complete Air™ Convertible Car Seat is tested with an intruding door technique, which best replicates an actual side impact crash. Dorel Juvenile Group (DJG) collaborated with Kettering University’s renowned Crash Safety Center to develop a new standard for side impact testing. This new testing method is so significant that DJG and Kettering University have shared their findings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), supporting NHTSA’s efforts to provide more comprehensive regulations for side impact crash testing.
