My sister has the Peg Perego Pilko Four Stroller, but she has the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4-35 car seat, it worries her that there is no clicking or snapping when you put the car seat in. It just sits there. According to the website Peg Perego Car seats don't need a car seat adapter for it's own strollers but for others yes they do. What can we do?

Thank you for all your help!

Hi there,

It is true, car seats don't need to have a base if belted into the car properly. The newer models usually offer an Isofix base option, however, it is not a problem not to have it - it serves more for making it easier to put in the car, eliminating errors of belting improperly, but if you belt the car seat in properly, it is completely alright and safe. So the only thing to do is to check the manual and belt the capsule as it should be.

If that worries you still, you might just need to get a newer car seat with a base.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
