  2. Maximum safety - the Stretch has a new and innovative exo frame, the construction connects with the car belts and floor to bear the forces in the case of a frontal crash. The rigid seat shell spine transfers the child's energy onto the exo frame, keeping the child in a stable position in an impact. Allowing children to travel 5 x safer for longer.
  3. Flexible and easy installation - the seat is belt mounted (no isofix) making it possible to install in any car and any seat, giving you maximum flexibility. Retracting lower tethers and an easy lock-off and tensioning mechanism make for intuitive and sturdy installation. The Stretch is one of the easiest seats to install on the market.

Okke van Mourik,director of Research and Development at BeSafe quotes:


"At BeSafe we are dedicated to developing the safest possible car seats for children of all ages and pride ourselves on our innovation and design.


As a brand we recommend all children stay rear facing for as long as possible when travelling by car for several reasons. Currently in the UK the age limit to stay rear facing is 15 months old, however we advise you keep your child rear facing for longer. 


Firstly rear facing gives a very substantial reduction of forces on a child's neck in the event of a front or side impact. In a collision a rear facing seat acts as a protective shell around the child, completely supporting the body and head. For example, if the child was forward facing their head is far more vulnerable, with forces pushing them forward and colliding with the hard parts of the vehicle's interior.


Secondly, with the use of mirrors adults in the front can have a perfect view of the child, which is not the case with forward facing seats.


We have designed the Stretch to have available space within the frame of the seat and for the legs, supporting the child as they grow in the utmost comfort.In all crash situations the Stretch is that protective shell you want around the child."
