A safety issue with the Kiddy Guardianfix Pro and a simple method to rectify this.
Dear Kiddy Customers,
It has come to our attention that a testing house in Germany, ADAC, has recently had a poor result in one out of sixteen advanced crash tests with the Kiddy Guardianfix Pro. We would like to clarify that in the other fifteen tests, using a variety of dummy sizes, and the isofix fittings, the seat passed with very good results. However when tested with the 3 year old dummy, without the isofix fittings, but using the baby insert cushion folded over, it failed. This has led to a report that suggests the seat is unsafe when used specifically with these one-off criteria.
The problem is easily rectified by removing one half of the foam in the baby insert cushion. This is very simple to do. We have put a demonstration on youtube as well as on the website where you will find a video showing how it’s done.
The test in question was repeated by Kiddy, at the same testing house, on the 29th May with the adapted insert cushion in situ. We are pleased to announce that it passed convincingly.
Therefore, we can say, categorically that the Kiddy Guardianfix Pro has excellent safety standards when used in conjunction with the isofix fittings, and is entirely safe for use without isofix providing the baby insert cushion has been adapted as advised.
We apologise for any concerns that you may have and please be assured that Kiddy take the safety of your children very seriously. If you have any questions, please post below and include your contact details.
