Safety Innovation for your Child
One of the most effective innovations in automotive safety is the crumple zone, the area of the vehicle that is designed to deform and crumple in a collision. The crumple zone absorbs energy in an impact, preventing it from being transmitted to the occupants.
Much like the crumple zones that protect us in the cars we drive, the crumple zone system integrated into every Foonf child seat protects your child.
How It Works
In a collision, the vehicle comes to an abrupt stop, but the child continues to move at the same speed. The less time that it takes for the child to come to a complete stop, the higher the forces exerted on the child. The REACT Safety System allows that sudden change in momentum to happen over a longer period of time through a series of controlled events. Foonf is designed to ride down the collision crumpling the aluminum honeycomb and absorbing energy from the collision resulting in less force transferred to the child.
Structural Headrest with Deep Side Wings
Energy-absorbing foam-lined headrest connected to frame using steel rods provides maximum head protection in a side-impact collision.
Energy-Absorbing Foam Layers
Foam layers on both the inside and outside of the frame protect your child by absorbing energy in a side-impact collision, resulting in less force directly upon your child.
In rear-facing mode, Foonf’s anti-rebound bar improves stability by limiting rotation of the child seat, helping protect your child’s head from impact in the case of a collision
Foonf is reinforced by a steel and magnesium sub-structure.
AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) advises parents to keep their toddlers in rear-facing car seats until age 2, or until they reach the maximum height and weight for their seat.
Designed for Comfort and Convenience + Styled to Match Child’s Individuality
FEATURING CLEK’S SIGNATURE RIGID-LATCH INSTALLATION AND A NARROW WIDTH PROFILE,
FOONF ACTUALLY MAKES A PARENT’S JOB EASIER.
Rigid-LATCH Forward-Facing Installation
Over 80% of child seats in North America are not used properly. Hands down the easiest forward-facing installation in its class, Foonf’s Rigid-LATCH system makes proper forward-facing installation effortless.
Improved Rear-Facing Installation in Smaller Vehicles
Unique design improves rear-facing installation in smaller vehicles by taking up less fore-aft space.
ExtraPadded Seat Cushion
Additional layers of thick foam padding make for comfortable rides and protects against numb-bum syndrome!
Foonf includes an easy-to-engage, smooth recline function, making each ride more comfortable.
Crypton Super Fabrics
Permanent protection against stains, moisture and bacteria. The only thing this fabric doesn't resist is easy cleaning
Approved for use in Aircraft
Child Height, Weight and Age
*AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) advises parents to keep their toddlers in rear-facing car seats until age 2, or until they reach the maximum height and weight for their seat.
The Clek Foonf convertible child seat has undergone rigorous dynamic crash testing, including:
Compliance testing which is federally required and represents 98% of all real-world crashes
NCAP testing which simulates forces experienced in extreme crashes
Side-impact and other extensive due-care testing which tests conditions outside of compliance testing, such as structural integrity for maximum occupant weight and various installation positions, the effect of extreme temperatures, misuse conditions, etc.
The Federal Government has established dynamic performance (crash testing) criteria that all Child Restraint Systems are required to meet. These criteria are used to assess the probability of injury.

1. HEAD INJURY CRITERIA
Head Injury Criteria (HIC) is used to assess the probability of a head injury. HIC is determined using the resultant acceleration at the center of gravity of the head. The threshold limit is 1000.
2. CHEST ACCELERATION
Chest acceleration is measured in Gs and is used to assess the probability of a chest injury. The threshold limit is 60 Gs.
