Adjustable Load Leg The Load Leg, a virtual standard in Europe, is now available on the Base 2. The Load Leg provides additional support between the child restraint and the vehicle, allowing the Aton to more effectively absorb and distribute crash energy. The Leg dramatically reduces forward pitching of the seat, keeping the child in the prescribed position during the entire crash event.This reduces the risk of spinal cord injury due to stretching, which can be caused if the infant seat pitches too far forward. Steel Chassis A solid steel spine running through the Base 2 creates metal to metal contact through the Load Leg, infant carrier, and the vehicle for added strength and properly managed crash forces. Dual Weight Ranges The dual weight ranges of the Base help to make sure your seat is reclined at the proper angle according to the weight of your child.One range accommodates children from 4?22 pounds and the other, 22?35 pounds. Dual Action Release A green safety button indicates a secure connection has been made between the carrier and the Base. This button is part of a two-step process needed to remove the Infant Carrier from the Base, preventing accidental release. Innovative Belt Tensioner The Base 2 uses a unique Belt Tensioning Plate for a quick, simple and secure installation when using either LATCH or vehicle belts.Simply remove the slack from the belts and close the plate for a super easy and tight install. Recline Foot A four-position, spring activated leveling foot makes reclining the Base 2 easy. The dual ranges level indicator makes sure your child is reclined at the proper angle.
