New to Growing Up- Clek car seats!

New to Growing Up- Clek car seats!

We are very excited to now be carrying Clek car seats! Clek is a company born from a major auto maker that is known for its innovation in design and safety. 

The Foonf

is referred to as the "mother of all car seats" and is Clek’s no-compromise convertible child seat – introducing revolutionary safety technology, innovative convenience features, and is recyclable. It offers extended rear facing- until the child's 4th birthday, advanced side impact protection- with foam layers on the inside and outside of the frame, a rigid steel sub structure, and an anti-rebound bar that limits rotation of the seat to protect your child's head in a collision.

 

 

The Fllo

is Clek's compact convertible car seat. It offers extended rear facing- up to 50 pounds, advanced side impact protection- with foam layers on the inside and outside of the frame, an adjustable head rest with deep side wings, a rigid steel sub structure, and an anti-rebound bar that limits rotation of the seat to protect your child's head in a collision. Fllo boasts a best-in-class narrow width under 17 in. at its widest. The improved compact design sits lower in vehicle for improved visibility and ingress/egress. There is an integrated flip foot for rear-facing installation. The base of child seat measures 13 in. wide for improved installation in difficult vehicle seating positions, like deep bucket seats and center seating positions. The anti-rebound bar nests into flat part of vehicle seat back ensuring a snug installation with ease (and is removable for a more upright installation for extended rear-facing).

The Foonf and Fllo are very similar, with identical weight limits. The main differences are the recline mechanism, the height in the vehicle, the lower anchor, and the recline positions. To sort out the differences, visit this post from the blog Car Seats for the Littles: http://csftl.org/foonf-fllo-comparison/.
