Hi do the maxi cosi mico APs in NZ come with the strap to top tether? My car doesnt have isofix so I have to use seat belt and locking clip but I feel like that isn't safe enough without the tether strap

Hi there, My partner and I are moving to Ireland from Australia at the end of this year and we're wondering if this particular capsule will meet the safety standards in Ireland or if we would have to purchase an alternative one when we get there?
Thanks

Good question! I have no idea... maybe look up maxi cosi website and contact them direct, they should have an email or something to send a enquiry.
Maybe even call a baby bunting or shop you can buy it from here in Australia and ask them to find out for you

Irish here too. Specifically I haven't got official info on your question, you'll need to talk to maxi cosy. Generally though, it won't have the stamp, not that anyone will ever check. One thing to note is the Australian standards are actually tougher than UK and Ireland. That means you'll have to contend a top tether, which is a pita. best to rent for a few months and buy your gear back in Europe. Same applies to any towbar related accessories.

Hello, I have recently purchased a 2nd hand uppa baby vista pram that came with adapters, I am trying to work out if there is a certain capsule that the adapters belong with? I asked the lady who I brought it off and she couldn't remember. Is there any way I can find out or do all the capsules use the same adapters?

Thanks

It’s probably best to ask at a baby store that sells prams and capsules. They will be able to advise of the correct fitting capsule

I am wondering if anyone else has come across this? I was looking at the safety testing for this capsule model and the ISOFIX model, on https://www.childcarseats.com.au and the ISOFIX model has 1/5 stars while the non ISOFIX model has 3/5 stars... I was just wondering if anyone may know WHY this would be? Thanks

I found the same thing when I was researching them, I'm not sure of the exact reason why but you can see on www.childcarseats.com.au the exact areas it got the lower star scores on. I went with the non ISOFIX model even though my car has ISOFIX because the safety rating was so much better.

Hi

We have moved from Australia to Ireland with our Maci Cosi Mico AP model : MAP 2013 and have realised that we can't find our tether strap. Can this be purchased in Europe? Also is this unit compatible with any Isofix bases that can be purchased in Europe?

Kind regards

Steven

You will need to contact the Australian Dorel office (Maxi Cosi's parent company), and request a new tether strap be sent to you. You may also need to look up local laws and regulations as it may not be legal to use your capsule there.

It should fit any pram that takes Maxi Cosi adapters.

isabelasked

is the maxi cost mico adequately restrained using just the seat belt through the base? I am reluctant to use the extra anchorage point in the rear odf the vehicle, a hatchback, as it will severely restrict putting the pram into that area.

1 answer

The top tether (rear anchor point) must be used. It is not tested for use without the top tether, and could result in severe injuries to your child in the the event of a car accident.

What prams can it be clipped into?

Kura A.Maxi-Cosi

Hi Matt,
Lovely to hear from you.
The Mico is compatible with most prams on the market. You will need to check with your pram manufacturer if they stock adaptors for the Mico AP.
Some companies that we know 100% are, Joolz, Uppa BABY, Bugaboo, City Select, Safety 1st, Silver Cross, and plenty others.
Hope this helps.

Hi I purchased a maxi cosi mico Ap isofix however the bottom connector strap (for the isofix) seems to be missing? Is this something that is supposed to come with the car seat or is it something you have to purchase separately?

Hi I am wanting to purchase a maxi cosi ap isofix capsule but I have a 2008 Nissan dualis that doesn't look like its on the list of compatible cars. Can it still be installed or is this capsule not suitable ?

All isofix capsules and car seats can also be installed with a seatbelt (as an alternative method of installation to isofix). The top tether will still need to be used.

Hi!
I have a maxi cosi mico ap 2010 model but I am having a lot of trouble clicking the capsule into the base. Are there any tricks/tips to this? Also, is my 2010 capsule compatible with the newer model base?
Thanks!

Kura A.Maxi-Cosi

Hi Shellew,
Thank you for your question. A couple of tips is to make sure that the top tether strap and the harness straps are away from the base at all times as this will make it harder to snap in place. Unfortunately the newer base isn't compatible with the 2010 model.
If you have any questions or would like some to take you through the tips please call the customer service number on Phone: 1300 809 526 (toll free within Australia).
Thank you

Pull the lever outwards, ensuring that the red line is not visible. The capsule should then click into the base. This is a common fault with Maxi Cosi capsules of this age, just ensure that the release isn't stuck, and always give the capsule a gently tug to ensure it has clicked into the base prior to travel.

Do all maxi cosi capsules fit into the same base? I have been given a 2010 maxi cosi air in excellent condition for use in grandparents car.. What base is required for this capsule? Do all capsules fit into the same base?

1 answer
l0ves_ch0c0late
l0ves_ch0c0late

No. Your capsule uses the older style base attachment system. The newer Maxi cosi capsule bases won't fit. If the capsule doesn't have a base it can't be used.
Maybe look at getting a 0-4 car seat for the grandparents car if there is no base?

Hi there,

I purchased the maxi cosi mico AP isofix and had it anstalled by a professional today. When I asked him why he was not connecting it with the isofix connections he explained that the straps were made a little too long and wasn't as secure as the normal way of installing it. Once he showed me both ways of installing I did see a difference in the amount of movement in the bottom fixed part of the capsul so decided to not connect via isofix connection and just connect normally.. I do feel a little frustrated as we did spend $50 more to get the isofix version due to it being advertised as safer and easier however it did not look safer when seeing the amount of movement the capsule had compared to using the belt system. The guy that installed mentioned that maxi cosi does know about the issue with the isofix connections being too long. i just wanted to get a response if I may.

Many thanks

This is a known issue across a number of vehicles. Some vehicles are just not compatible with the isofix attachments on this capsule.

Hi, my 4-week-old gets very distressed in the capsule and constantly gets a bit of sick come up every time she's in that position for even a short car trip and she never falls asleep in the car due to discomfort in the capsule. Is there something I can do to help give her a bit more support in the seat so she's not so slumped forward putting pressure on her tummy?

Kura A.Maxi-Cosi

Hi Mrs M,
Thank you for your message. We haven't heard of this problem before but all bubbas are different. Does your Mico AP have it's infant insert in? This will help position your baby in the correct position. If you are unsure please contact our customer service line on Phone: 1300 809 526 (toll free within Australia).
Thank you
