In your long and careful journey to finding the safest convertible car seat, you’ll run into Clek quite often. Their best-in-class safety features—paired with easy installation and modern design—make Clek Convertible Car Seats and Booster Seats some of the best in the biz. And the Clek Foonf Convertible Car Seat 2019 / 2020 is no different! Here’s what makes this safe, sleek, and peculiarly-named seat so buzzworthy.
All Foonf Convertible Car Seats are eligible for Clek’s all-new 1+2 Year Extended Warranty! Most convertible car seats on the market include a 2 year warranty from their manufacturer. Clek is offering an industry-leading 3 years with your purchase, and all you need to do is register your seat online. It’s a super simple process with a really awesome payoff.
What another impressive feature on the Foonf? The fabrics! The 2019 / 2020 Foonf features C Zero+ performance fabrics with a moisture barrier. This new fluorine-free solution for stain resistance continues to offer impermeability to liquids and spills, anti-microbial technology, and a GREENGUARD Gold certification, all while remaining free of chlorinated and brominated flame retardants.
- Best-in-class Safety: The Clek Foonf Convertible Car Seat 2019 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 Foonf has a higher weight limit for rear-facing use than many other convertible car seats. 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. And with the purchase of an Infant-Thingy Insert, teeny newborns 5-22 pounds in weight and 19-33 inches in height can ride safely and comfortably in their Foonf.
- Easy installation: The Clek Foonf Convertible Car Seat 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 Foonfs across the back seat of many vehicles.
Advanced fabrics: The Foonf features C Zero+ performance fabrics with a moisture barrier. This new fluorine-free solution for stain resistance continues to offer impermeability to liquids and spills, anti-microbial technology, and a GREENGUARD Gold certification, all while remaining free of chlorinated and brominated flame retardants.
- Comfort: It’s no secret that the Foonf boasts features to make your job as a parent just a bit easier. But sometimes the most convenient feature of all is a seat that keeps your child happy and cozy. The Clek Foonf reclines smoothly, resulting in a super comfy ride for napping kids.
And when your time with your Foonf is over, you can hand it over to the Clek Product Recycling Program. Clek has formed strategic partnerships in North America to manage the disassembly and recycling or reintroduction of the plastic, metal, foam, and fabric components into other products. It’s one of their many initiatives to keep the environment at the forefront of the daily decisions they make.
