Is this seat OK to use in the front passenger seat?

Mother's Choice

Hi Mica, thank you for reaching out. The booster seat must be collected to an anchor point which would not be on the back of a front seat so this booster would not be suitable for use in the front seat. Kind Regards, Fi - Customer Care Team

I am looking to purchase a car seat for my almost 6 month old for when he is ready to come out of the capsule. I was looking at this one as it seems to be compact enough to still give my other kids room for long trips and will be convenient not to shop for another when he reaches 4. Just wondering if this seat reclines as most booster seats for older kids don’t. I want him to be able to comfortably sleep without his head falling forward all of the time do recline is a must

Hi Nicole, Thanks for reaching out to us. The Mothers Choice Tempo is a great seat and has a fitment recline. We recommend keeping your child rearward facing as long as possible. Feel free to reach out to our consumer care team customerservice@dorel.com.au who can talk you through features and benefits and fitment, and help you choose a seat which will best suit your needs. Regards, Claire

I bought this seat today for my almost 5 yo. She’s still in the harness as her shoulders are below the height marker. Which is great, that’s what I wanted. However the crotch buckle straps are very long and the buckle sits against her stomach instead of low with the straps over her thighs. Is this adjustable at all as it doesn’t look like it would be safe in an accident. Might cause abdominal injury? Or is this buckle placement fine??

Hi emmakwyatt Thanks for your question.
If you can take photos of your daughter in the seat and send these to customerservice@dorel.com.au our Customer Service team will be able to assess this for you and advise further for you.

Kind regards

Would you please advise the max weight limit for the harness use on the Tempo Booster seat? Thank you!

Mother's Choice
Mother's Choice   DM   

HI NMK, Thank you for your question as per the Australian standards there is no weight limit anymore. Usability of the seat is measured by height markers on the seat, hope this helps. Feel free to contact us on 1300 809 526 and our customer service team can answer any further questions that you may have, Kind Regards, Mother's Choice Team.

I need a splitter plate for my baby car seat. Where Can I buy one please?

Mother's Choice
Mother's Choice   DM   

Hi Nina, Thanks for your question. These are not available to purchase as they are stitched to the adjuster strap. We are not sure if the tightening strap has been pulled too far through and this is stuck underneath the seat. Or if the part is lost. Either way this needs to be installed by a licensed fitter as it is a safety item. Can I suggest giving our customer service team a call on 1300 809 526 and they should be able to talk you though this.

Kind regards, Fiona

Hi, trying to fit the seat and it's doing my head in. I've never had a seat so hard. It says after clicking in belt, pull the sash part to the front of the seat. In the diagram it shows sash somehow magically going to the middle of the seat and then up. In reality sash goes across harness straps on an angle, right where the child sits. This can't be safe or comfortable. Most seats have sash going behind but they say that's incorrect. PLEASE can someone tell me how they've put the sash in a comfortable way for the child?

Does the tether have to be used or can it just sit on top of the normal car seat

Richard

Oh mate! The installation was a nightmare. Even after ringing the manufacturer, who was helpful, reading the stupid instructions, I could not work it out. Somehow and I don’t know how I got the thing in. I’ll sell the car with the seat if I need to change cars as I’ll buy any other seat rather than try and fit it in again.

Thanks. Thats actually good to know as I am wanting "spare" car seats that can go between our small car and 3rd row of the Kluger (with no anchor point).

Hi,
We have been using this seat for our four (now five) year old grandson and now need to convert it from a booster seat which used the car's lap-sash seat belt to reverting it to the harness for one of our three year old grand daughters. I can't see how to secure the harness at the opposite end to the splitter plate. So I have the two straps threaded correctly into the spitter late but where does the other end of the belt go to secure the harness.
There's probably a very simple answer but I'm not seeing it in the instruction manual.
Hope you can help?
Thank you from Louise Jacob.

Can this seat recline for when the child falls asleep?

You can adjust the angle to account for different cars' seats when installing it, but I don't believe it is intended to be reclined whilst a child is in it. The harness tends to hold them upright anyway.

Is this car seat suitable for 6month old?

SarahH
SarahH  

I would not be putting a 6 month old forward facing.. The car seat is advertised to suit approx 6m - 8yr, but I doubt any 6mo th old is tall enough to go into it unless they are giant! New laws go by child shoulder height not age or weight. My now 18 month old is very tall, she's in the top percentile for height and her torso is very long. She wasn't tall enough to move to forward facing until around 14 months old. Rear facing is the safest option for as long as you possibly can, even though it's less convenient, it's a ridiculous amount safer than forward facing. hope this helps.

Is this model ISOFix compatible?

I don't think so.

No, but the design of seatbelt lacing reduces lateral movement greatly compared to other seats.
