Can the Fit2™ be installed on an aircraft?
The Fit2™ carrier can be installed in an aircraft seat the same way it is installed in a vehicle seat without a base when using a lap belt. For more information, please refer to page 85 and page 62 of the Fit2™ instruction manual.
Should my Fit2™ be replaced after vehicle crash?
Chicco recommends replacing a car seat after any crash. The base is included in this recommendation (if the base was in the vehicle when the crash occurred).

There is no way of knowing what, if any, damage has occurred that would affect the car seat’s performance in a crash. The only way to determine this would be to test the car seat. Therefore, Chicco cannot guarantee a car seat involved in a crash will perform the way it was designed in any subsequent crash. Chicco recommends contacting your insurance company about replacement of your car seat. For more information, please refer to page 13 of the Fit2™ instruction manual.
Are the fabrics on the Fit2™ machine-washable?
The fabrics on the Fit2™ may be spot-cleaned, hand- or machine-washed:

  • Hand wash using mild soap and water, or machine wash on delicate cycle using cold water and mild detergent. Hang to dry. (Do not put fabrics in the dryer.)
  • We recommend hand-washing the Fit2™ canopy specifically.
For more information, please refer to the instructional video for removing and replacing the Fit2™ fabrics.
When can I move my child to Stage 2 in the Fit2™ car seat?
Your child should be able to crawl or walk, be at least 9 months of age, and weigh at least 15 lbs. For more information, please refer to the instructional video for using the 2 stages and page 28 of the Fit2™ instruction manual.
