Chicco Keyfit 30 Base – Overview
The Chicco Keyfit 30 Base is suitable for use with the Chicco Keyfit and Chicco Keyfit 30 infant car seats.
It comes fitted with easy push-on style LATCH connectors, but can also be installed using the adult seat belt.
Quick and correct installation is achieved using a combination of the spring-assisted level foot, two precision bubble level indicators and the centre-pull LATCH adjustment mechanism.
This base is used to secure your Chicco Keyfit 30 car seat in a rear-facing position to ensure maximum collision protection for your baby. The American Academy of Paediatrics recommends that children remain in rear-facing car seats until they are at least 2 years of age.

Peace of Mind
This base is extremely easy to install and you can be confident that your baby’s seat is rigidly fixed into place. It is a sturdy and solidly constructed product and it emits a clearly audible click to confirm correct installation of the seat into the base. The orange buttons on the side of the base make it very easy to adjust its height to a suitable and safe level (as indicated by the precision bubble level indicators).

This seat base is significantly more expensive than the Maxi Cosi Mico base, but it is on a par with its main competitor (the Britax B-Safe base).
If you need the flexibility of being able to install your baby’s Chicco Keyfit 30 infant car seat into multiple vehicles, this base is a must have item. Whilst it would be technically possible to continuously remove and re-install the original base into different vehicles, this would be very time-consuming and inconvenient.
