what is safeguard ? â„˘
safeguard is a passive and safe alternative to the 5-point harness. It slides easily into havenâ€™s armrests acting as the guardian to lock the child into place in the seat.
5 -point harness
safeguard offers maximum safety, evenly absorbing the impact force over a larger area of the body. This significantly reduces the stress to the head, neck and shoulder area.
A 5-point harness holds the child back at the shoulders on impact force, creating concentrated pressure on the shoulders and neck. This results in extreme head and neck movement.

What parents are saying about the haven with safeguard “My wife has always been set on extended rear facing for our girls but talking her through the safety features of the haven with safeguard, she was convinced to try it with our girls. My 18 month old daughter loved being forward facing and was clearly very comfortable and safe behind the safeguard. Our elder daughter loved having an ‘adult’ seat belt rather than the ‘five point harness’ that she is used to. By far, the most important thing was that we felt that both children were in a very safe seat - this is always the number one thing that we look for. We’re thrilled with the experience and would definitely recommend this to family and friends. My wife has given me the go ahead to buy a haven for each of our girls, she is that convinced of its safety” John, dad to Lexie and Megan. “Initially I was nervous of no 5-point harness, purely because it is what I have always known but the concept of the safeguard made sense to me so I decided to give it a go. I am totally convinced by the result. My two year old son looked snug and
well protected much more so than in his 5-point harness. The safeguard, combined with the well padded sides cocooned him in a way that made him look well protected from all angles. He was very comfortable and relaxed with his arms resting on the safeguard. After seeing him in this car seat, I know understand why this style of car seat is considered to be such an exceptionally safe option”. Vik, dad to two year old Zack. “With a busy two and a half year old, getting her into our usual harnessed car seat can sometimes be a struggle. However the great thing about the haven was the minute she sat in it she was super happy to be there and enjoyed me putting the safeguard on her ‘big girl’ car seat. Even though to her she felt like it was a step up age wise, she was just as safe and restrained as in her harnessed seat. My husband was intrigued at first and a little unsure but when her saw her in it and safely tucked in, he was completely convinced” Allanah, mum to 2 year old Blake
