Expensive but you don’t have a choice

Good quality item. It’s pricey, but if you went for a Chaperone carseat that’s your only option if you need a second base. It is original and fits perfect.

Must have accessory if you’ve got two cars.

What’s not to like? It’s exactly what it says it should be which is a second base for a car seat we received for our baby. Haven’t really put it to use yet but it was easy to install.

Very Safe and Convenient

We love this car seat and bought two bases for each of our cars. So far, very practical investment. Amazon’s prices cannot be beaten on these types of items, as I paid $60 for this on here after our registry discount. It costs $99 at Buy Buy Baby.

Easy click and go

Installation was somewhat difficult. Fit better in rear passenger position than center position because base is large. However, once installed properly, extremely easy to use. Smooth click in and out for the carseat.

I love this product. It is very easy to put the car seat in and out. The car seat itself, I think, is very heavy, but the base is great.

Excellent easy to use base!

I bought this as a 2nd base for our Britax system and it is stupid easy to use. I love how it easily snaps into a cars latch system using the anchors..Other pluses is the unit has a knob in the middle and a level on the side to help you adjust the seat height to level it out.Only downfall is the base is huge! Even have to slide the seat forward in my Jeep Grand Cherokee…

Great Accessory for Two Car Families!

Just picked up a 2nd Britax Chaperone Infant Car Seat Base for my car after successfully installing the one that came with our Britax ChaperoneBritax Chaperone Infant Carrier – Red — redin the wife’s car. Anyone who is in the market for this base knows that it’s probably one of the largest infant car seat bases on the market, but chances are you already own one of these already and understand the amount of room needed to ensure a properly fit in your vehicle.We’re able to successfully install this car seat base (and matching car seat) in a Saturn Vue and an Acura TSX in one of the rear passenger seats using LATCH.

bought 2 of these, no problems

We have been happy with the purchase of both of these based to go with our Britax Chaperone infant car seat. We bought one car seat, and one base for each car. Having both made it much easier to transfer baby from car to car. This was easy to instal in out 09 Tiguan, and our 01 4-Runner. One car uses the Latch system, the other does not and they fit snugly in both cars. The only thing that was a bit of a bother, was that you have to stand of sit on the base to get the straps tight enough. You have to push pretty hard to get the seat to fit tightly. This is a minor inconvenience to me, I would rather do that and feel that the base is tight enough. I felt that the base made the car seat fit in tighter than without it. It was easy to click the seat in and out of the base. We were never in an accident with either car, but the rebound bar makes sense, and gave me peace of mind.

Must have for a 2 (or more) car family!

If you are a two car family this is a must have! After recently traveling and using the seat belt with the car seat, I can really vouch for the difference the base makes. So fast, and much, much more safe and secure. We are a Britax family, and we are using this with our 5th Britax car seat.
