Great baby car seat

published

Easy, light and great for taking my baby out of the car and straight into the pram without waking them up. Recommended this product to all new parents. Good job Steelcraft!

Purchased in December 2018 for $40.00.

Lightweight, easy to use

published

I use this daily. I love it. I originally had a 0-8 years car seat but I didn’t like the way my daughter looked in it when she was newborn, she looked very uncomfortable as it didn’t recline much.

So when she was a few weeks old I started researching capsules and found that steelcraft made one that is compatible with my steelcraft pram. Very convenient, lightweight and easy to use.

She looks very comfy in it and will sleep in it long after we get home. My baby girl runs hot just like her dad so when she could support her neck (around 3 months) I took out the support as when I would take her out she would be dripping in sweat. I love that it’s easy to remove and wash.

I can’t recommend this enough.

Purchased in May 2019 at Baby Bunting Physical store for $299.00.

Makes Life With Bub Easy

published

We received a steelcraft stroller for our baby shower, so purchased this for the first few months. It makes getting out of the house so easy as it just clips right in! Also great for when she has sleepovers with Granny as the base is super easy to move between cars and takes about a minute to install!

Purchased in February 2019.

Makes life so much easier

published

My daughter loves the capsule. If I am trying to get ready and out the door when she's tired and cranky I can put her in the capsule and she will often fall asleep before we are even in the car. The capsule makes it very easy if they are asleep to move between places. I used it for short trips for nearly a year with my son (and he was big) due to the convenience. The attachment to my pram was very easy also. The only thing is it is quite heavy once baby is in there, however I'd rather it be safe and heavy than light and flimsy!

Lifesaver!

published

Absolutely loved the strider capsule, perfect for when bubs falls asleep and a quick stop in at the shops. Clips so easily from car to pram. My bub didn’t out grow till about nine months, so we got good use out of it. Certainly saved our sanity for those short trips.

Perfect!

This is a great capsule that is easy to carry and to fix in the car. It is compatible with a steelcraft pram. It was a breeze to install into our car. Baby found it very comfortable to sit into this capsule without feeling uncomfortable. I would recommend this to anyone.

This product is as good as it gets

published

Now when it comes to capsules, you don't want to skimp.
The most common brands are MaxiCosi, Britax and Steelcraft.
Seeing as Britax and Steelcraft are the same company, I can't see the difference.
We chose Steelcraft based on price and that it came with the Steelcraft pram (brackets included).
The carrier is easy to carry with a very secure locking handle (3 positions: flat/stand, locked in pram and carry mode).
We had it installed by an RACV certified fitter who taught us how to detach and reattach it.
Very secure and deliberate 'click' sounds when locks are engaged.
Our child looked quite cosy in it and very secure and padded.
Overall, we are pleased with our purchase with no regrets. Aim for under $300 (written @ January 2018).

Perfect for Newborn

published

Wasn’t going to use a capsule to begin with, however was swayed by my sister in law. I borrowed the capsule from her and so glad I did. So easy to use and carry. We have a smaller car and it fits in but the passenger seat has to be quite forward so wouldn’t be ideal if you have a tall passenger. But in a big car you would have no issone es like that. Capsule fits into requisite pram. Overall very happy with product.

Capsule

published

This capsule is not easy to carry especially when you have just had a baby. I couldn't carry it and had to give it away. The sunshade always falls down too. Baby did not fit very securely in capsule he was flopping around and did not look safe at all.

Cost a lot of money and is crap

published

It’s awkward to carry handle is too large. Very difficult to install in the car took it to the red cross who install all types and they had problems. Child fits in the capsule quite well. Has the potential to improve once baby grows and car seat can be changed to a sitting up mode.

Small make

published

I find that the capsule is easy to carry for the first month or so until baby starts to grow. I found it super confusing as a first time Mum to install it so I paid a professional to do it. I love that it is compatible with my pram for shopping trips. I find that it get enough airflow through it as my baby gets a super sweaty back on hot days.


Easy to use and stylish

published

I am using this capsule with the stroller for my first baby and he is two months old now. This is very convenient as I don't have to wake bub up to transfer him from the car to the pram. sometimes I take just the capsule if I go into a cafe or a restaurant and keep the baby in there next to me. The downside is it gets hot with the material. And as my baby gets a bit chubbier, I feel that the capsule won't fit him for long. also the capsule is a bit heavy to carry but baby is very safe in there.

Can't live without it!!!

published

This is a godsend, so easy to use and maintain.
I absolutely love that I can get the capsule in and out the car and connect it straight to my prom without waking baby up. Makes school pickups so much more easy that I'm not transferring my baby in and out the car waking him up.
Easy to clean and wash and easy to install in the car. Highly recommend!!

Safe and almost perfect!

published

Easy to carry, nice and compact.
Easy to put into base, but tricky to get out of base.
Very safe and secure.
But annoying to get bubs in and out of seat whilst it's attached to the base due to the belt that wraps around the capsule - you have to move the handle to the centre which jolts the capsule whilst making a loud click noise when it locks in, then you have to detach the belt from the capsule, really is a lot of fiddling and disrupting for bubs.

Amazing!!

We purchased the steelcraft capsule to fit into our steelcraft strider pram so we could go from car to pram with ease and it’s definitely delivered. The capsule is easy to carry, easy to install, bub fits perfectly in the capsule and the newborn adjustable insert allows room for our fast growing little one. Very happy!

Fan of Steelcraft since 2011

published

We have been using Steelcraft prams since 2011 and had been using the same baby capsule since then for our first two children. However with our newborn last year we needed a new one and didn't think twice about purchasing another one of these. The capsule is so handy for getting in and out of the car and into the buggy, it really is a great help. It is only really now at 9 months old that we are starting to feel like it may be getting a bit on the small side, and I'm sure we will be buying more Steelcraft products as our child gets older.

Couldn't have lived without it!

published

My child loved the capsule and I loved it too. It was lightweight to carry and clicked into my steelcraft strider pram. It was so convenient and easy to transfer baby from car to pram, especially if she'd fallen asleep. There are 3 different strap height settings, to keep baby comfortable and secure. My daughter is small and fit perfectly in the capsule for 7 months.

Good capsule but gets a bit hot and sometimes sticky seatbelt

published

The capsule is overall good but a bit hot and a bit of a sticky seatbelt sometimes at the back.
Looks great and feel very confident in the safety of it and it also works perfect as it fits in with our Steelcraft pram which means when bub is sleeping, no need to wake him up to transfer from one to the other.
