The normal seat belt extension is just a male to female connection, and shops selling baby seats won't stock these anymore as they say these can come undone as they sit behind the seat.


Agreed yes

Here's the fella:

PostPosted: Wed Nov 05, 2008 12:18 pm    Post subject: child car seats Reply with quote

I went through this having bought a 993 Targa & had 1 yr & 3 yr old kids to fit in & thus prove to my wife it was really a family car. I was also advised to go for a M&P Protec and for an older child, a MaxiCosi Rodi.

I also went to SBS in stanmore for help/ proper extension belt. Both seats have worked pretty well - I will try & post a picture of a Protec fitting which was sent to me by SBS while I was working out what to do.

FWIW, I have now moved on to booster seats now the kids are bigger & need a bit more space, so do in fact have the Protec/Rodi sitting unused at home.....

Hello rossh, welcome.

Is it the current model of Protec seat that you have, like these?

http://www.mamasandpapas.co.uk/search/?query=protec&category=All

Or maybe an older design?

Thanks!

I'd be interested to see how you got the M&P Protec to fit, as I tried it but it didn't fit well at all Confused

seat bought Feb 07. This is the pic from sbs, not in my car. I didnt have high expectations, so was partly just pleased to get it in, but it was sufficiently stable to get past the maternal scrutiny. The height of the seat made it feel like a swquash, but our youngerone loved the ability to look out, & would get lots of positive responses from passers by.

Hi rossh

How much did you lengethen the seat belt by? When I speak to SBS, it'd help to be able to quantify. How much did they charge?

You'd recommend the M&P Protec?

While the Protec fits, it doesn't fit as well as a Sicuro or Porsche Prince.

The legroom is also non-existant with a Protec.

According to SBS, the belt would need to be extended by 18'' and your existing buckle replace with shorter one. From memory c. £150 for everything incl fitting.

Agree on the leg-room point for the Pro-Tec, but since this was for a baby it wasnt too much of a problem - when she was bigger we did adjust the front seat rake more. It wouldnt be ideal for an every day drive. We have now moved onto booster seats which are much easier.

The Maxi Cosi Rodi seems to do the trick, but if youve got the "old" seat belt buckle you will need to replace this with the smaller ones to avoid buckle crunch. This seat is for 15kg onwards as it doesnt have its own harness. But more than the weight of baby, the height is important, so the seatbelt doesnt rub etc. It fits the back seats nicely and offers good support for children 15kg or about 2'8" in height. Biggest drawback is Baby wants to be in the front seat, not the back!

Not sure if this is the right place to mention it - the for sale bit only seems to want cars - but as baby has now outgrown the Porsche Prince seat
we went with first, Im going to put it on Ebay unless anyone here is interested.

Cheers
Ol

PostPosted: Wed Jan 05, 2011 1:26 pm    Post subject: 993 child seats & rear seat belts? Reply with quote

Tried putting my child car seat in the 993 and the seat seemed to fit but the seatbelt wasn't long enough to stretch round the seat.

Is there a way of to lengthen the seatbelts or is it just a case of having longer seatbelts installed.

Anyone have any experience of this?

Cheers Thumb

There is a standard Porsche seatbelt with longer webbing just for this reason. I bought mine from my Indy for about £80 IIRC.

Easy to swap over.

A belt extender is about a tenner and will do the same job if you're feeling a bit price sensitive. That's how I've fitted mine and it works a treat.

you can also remove your existing belt, and send it to QBS in London where they will remove the webbing and replace it with a longer piece, however much longer you ask for - I am told this is the safest method.

http://www.quickfitsbs.com/

It takes about a week, and costs £32.81p with the VAT That is what i did on one side of mine and it's perfect.

Quickfit SBS are a great outfit. The safest (but by far most expensive) method is to have them fit a static system for you. I had this done by QSBS on my previous 993. Renders the seat totally unmoveable. But costs around £300!!

Surprised Surprised Surprised

£300 quid?

What do they do / fit for that much dosh?

Does it depends on which child seat you have?

In my case, it's the Porsche Prince, so you just need the slightly longer belt to get an easier fit.

Thanks Simon - Can you recommend somewhere to purchase these extenders?

This also sounds very promising as my seat is just a seat belt fix solution too. It’s purely the length of the belt that is stopping me from fitting the seat. I have emailed sbs so thanks thumbsup
