Submarining is caused by the belt lifting and the child sliding under the lap belt in an impact. This can cause serious abdominal injuries. The anti-submarining design helps to prevent this with the arm-rest’s unique design. As a result, it holds the lap belt firm and secure across the child’s lap.
The Vario II also outperforms most other booster seats in Anti-Submarining tests performed by CREP. Additionally, this is without the use of additional crotch clips.
The easy-care Active Fabric covers on the Vario II are hard wearing, cool and breathable. The machine-washable, press-stud covers are easily removed for cleaning without having to uninstall the seat. Astra covers are as beautiful as they are practical and are available in three fresh colours.
