- Aton Base 2 and Aton Base 2-fix
ISOFIX and belted base
Safe and easy installation for great comfort. The infant carrier is clicked directly onto the base, making the buckling-up process of the infant carrier a nuisance of the past.
The belted Aton Base is fixed to the car by means of a quick belt-tensioning device. The height-adjustable prop provides additional stability. Aton Base-fix is secured to the car with its ISOFIX connectors and prop, which offers great safety and stability. Alternatively, the base can be belted to the car seat when used in vehicles that do not have ISOFIX. Both bases are equipped with an indicator confirming the correct installation.

Is this the right seat for my car?
The installation of our products is extensively tested in the latest vehicles. However, we always recommend a test installation at a qualified retailer to confirm individual compatibility. Especially the length of the vehicle belts or ISOFIX (US: LATCH) anchorage points may vary, even during a production run of a car manufacturer.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- How to adjust the integrated foldaway canopy?
When not in use the baby seat´s integrated foldaway canopy is hidden behind a visor located at the back of the seat. By slightly lifting the visor the canopy may be adjusted to your liking. To bring back the canopy to its original position slightly lift the visor again in order to release and fold away the canopy.
- May the infant car seat be used on the passenger seat?
The infant car seat may be used on the passenger seat if the airbags are not activated. The use of an infant carrier on vehicle seats with activated air bags pose a high risk of injury and are prohibited by law. CYBEX always recommends using the infant carrier in the back of the car (if possible behind the passenger seat). Statistically, this is the least dangerous seat in the car. In the case of a front impact collision the back seat position offers more collapsible zone and no front airbags that might pose a safety hazard. If you should need to use the car seat on the passenger seat in the front we ask you to adjust the seat as far back as possible.
- May the child be transported facing forward?
No, only infant carriers that are installed facing the rear end of the car can protect the child´s sensitive head effectively during a front impact. The child´s musculature is too weak to handle the forces triggered in an accident.
- Is it ok to leave my child in the infant carrier e.g. at home?
CYBEX infant car seats have been engineered to offer the best possible protection for a baby during a car ride without affecting the child´s spine in a negative way. However, we do not recommend leaving the baby sleeping inside the infant car seat at home for long periods of time.
- With which CYBEX pushchairs can I use the CYBEX infant car seats?
The CYBEX infant car seats have specifically been engineered to be part of a travel system. An adaptor connects the CYBEX Aton with all fully reclining CYBEX pushchairs (Callisto, Topaz, Onyx). The CYBEX infant carriers are also compatible with other brands of strollers, including Bugaboo, Baby Jogger and Mamas & Papas etc.
- What do I do if my baby´s head falls forwards while driving, even though the Aton infant carrier is positioned in the vehicle horizontally as indicated by the marker?
The marker on the side of the infant carrier tells you whether the Aton is installed in the car horizontally. The line of reference used is the road level. If, for example, you have a small car, the angle of the rear seat may slope slightly, thus marginally differing from the level of the road. If the Aton is aligned to the slant of the rear seat, the infant carrier may be positioned in the car incorrectly and the baby´s head may fall forward. This is why it is necessary to align the Aton infant carrier to the level of the road.
- May I use the infant car seat together with the base even when the airbag is activated?
When using a rear-facing restraint system, it is imperative that the front airbag is deactivated. This does not apply to side airbags. However, please ensure you follow the advice and recommendations of your car manufacturer.
- Can I use the baby seat and the base when the side airbag is activated?
Yes, side airbags may remain activated when using the baby seat.
- What kind of clothing should my baby be wearing in the baby seat?
Thick clothing is bulky and prevents the harness from lying against the body properly. This incorrect usage means that the harness straps will slip off the shoulders. This is why your child should wear everyday clothing, whilst avoiding thick garments, such as jackets. Once your baby is safely secured in the seat, he/she can be kept warm with an additional blanket.
- How do I know when my child needs to change to a seat in the next group up?
We generally advise against switching from a rear-facing Group 0+ car seat (0-13kg, birth to approx. 18 months) to a forward-facing Group 1 seat (9-18 kg, approx. 9 months to 4 years) or to a combined Group 1/2/3 seat (9-36 kg, approx. 9 months to 12 years) prematurely. Even if your baby's feet protrude outside the car seat or your baby can already sit, your child has not necessarily grown out of the seat. However, if your baby's head is protruding above the top edge of the seat and your baby already weighs over 13kg, it is time to change the seat, as it no longer affords sufficient protection to the vulnerable neck and head area. After changing the seat, your baby’s head should be positioned within the protective area of the height-adjustable headrest of the Group 1 seat, enabling your child to see comfortably over the safety cushion and to use the cushion as a play area. If your child disappears behind the safety cushion, then he/she is definitely too small for a Group 1 seat.
- Is it ok to keep using a seat after an accident?
In an accident the plastic parts of the baby seat may sustain damages that are invisible to the eye yet extremely dangerous. Therefore, CYBEX always strongly advises to exchange the car seat if it has been involved in any type of accident.
- Can I use this child seat on an airplane?
No, this seat is not approved for use on an airplane.
- My car seat is faulty, how can I get it repaired?
Please contact the retailer who initially sold you your CYBEX product. They will organise the repair on your behalf.
