The PAD+ and SIP+ are together available as an accessory package for the iZi Flex S FIX and can be purchased at BeSafe retailers.
When children are buckled up with the vehicle seat belt, they often feel that the shoulder belt is ‘uncomfortable’, leading to a risk of positioning the shoulder belt incorrectly to avoid discomfort, e.g. by placing it underneath their arm. To avoid this risk of misuse and to increase comfort, the PAD+ softens the edge of the vehicle seat belt, padding it. Additionally, it also actively increases safety by acting as a cushioning bumper between the child’s chin and chest.
This new generation of SIP+ has a newly designed fitting mechanism that makes attaching and detaching the SIP+ easier.
The additional side impact protection SIP+ can be placed onto the side of the iZi Flex FIX i-Size facing the vehicle door to further enhance the side impact protection, yet the iZi Flex FIX i-Size has already passed the demanding crash test criteria of the UN R129-02 regulation without the SIP+. Its main function is to reduce the distance between the seat and the vehicle door, thereby enabling an earlier contact in a side impact that leads to less movement.
