    US Chicco Keyfit Base OK to use in Canada?


    I realize that I must purchase my Chicco Keyfit carseat from Canada in order to use in Canada. But can I purchase an extra base from the US and use it in Canada?

    When the carseat is purchased in Canada, it comes with a base and seat. The seat has a Transport Canada sticker but the base does not. Does that mean that the base does not require a Transport Canada sticker and can I purchase an additional base from the US?

    Thanks for your input.

    Hi . If you want an extra base, you must purchase it in Canada as well. I suspect that a stand alone base would have a National Safety Mark (the maple leaf sticker) even if the one that comes with the seat doesn't, although I'm not 100% on that.
