About the Clek Foonf 2017 Convertible Car Seat
Clek is a name synonymous with safety. From the get-go, Clek car seats and booster seats have been designed with best-in-class safety features, easy installation, and gorgeous design that prioritizes kid comfort.
The Clek Foonf Convertible Car Seat 2017 model continues an already impressive track record of safety and comfort, putting it among the best convertible car seats on the market. The Clek Foonf 2017 includes a new cover for the crotch buckle, and updated product labeling.
The Clek Foonf 2017 boasts the dependable, top of the line safety features you’ve come to expect from Clek, including:
- All-around safety: The Clek Foonf convertible car seat 2017 has excellent side-impact protection, utilizing layers of foam on both the interior and exterior of the car seat, in addition to a padded, energy-absorbing headrest that connects to the seat frame via steel rods. The Clek Foonf also employs the REACT™ safety system (which stands for Rigid-Latch Energy Absorbing Crumple Technology) to aid in front and rear crash protection by using a “crumple zone” designed to essentially slow down the change in momentum from a crash, reducing the amount of force transferred to the child. The Clek Foonf is also NCAP tested, includes an anti-rebound bar to increase the car seat’s stability in a crash, and boasts a rigid steel and magnesium substructure.
- Extended rear facing: The Clek Foonf car seat 2017 has a higher weight limit for rear-facing use than many other convertible car seats, making it one of the best for extended rear facing. The Foonf can be used rear-facing up to 50 lb., aiding in following industry best-practices allowing children to sit rear-facing in a car seat up to 4 years of age.
- Easy installation: Even a car seat with ample safety features poses risks when not installed properly. The Clek Foonf 2017 is very easy to install both rear- and forward-facing, and features one of the easiest forward-facing installation processes in its class. And the narrow frame of the Clek Foonf (17” at its widest point, and 13” at its base) makes it possible to install 3 Foonf car seats across the back seat in many vehicles.
- Comfort and cleaning: The Clek Foonf 2017 reclines smoothly, resulting in a super comfy ride for napping kiddos, and the GREENGUARD Select Certified Crypton® Super fabrics are stain-resistant and very easy to clean, making sure your Clek Foonf convertible car seat stays fresh and clean for the long haul.
The Clek Infant-Thingy insert is a fabulous accessory (sold separately) designed for use by infants 5-22 lb., allowing the Clek Foonf Convertible Car Seat 2017 to be suitable for use from birth. Without the insert, the Foonf can be used beginning when your child can sit up, with a weight range of 14-50 lb. rear-facing, and 20-65 lb. forward-facing.
