    Minor accident: do I need to replace my clek fllo's?

    I was recently rear ended at low speed, no children were in the car, airbags did not deploy, there was minor damage to my rear bumper. I have two clek fllo's that were forward facing in the second row, do I need to replace them? I seem to have misplaced my manuals, I have been using them for 3 years at this point so I rarely need to pull them out anymore. On that note, I was also wondering if I need to switch to a seatbelt install when my twins reach a certain weight. Thank you!

    (PS my signature line is about 7 years old at this point, so completely inaccurate)

    Re: Minor accident: do I need to replace my clek fllo's?

    The downloadable manual for the 2016 Fllo says on page 9 to not use with the lower anchors after 40 pounds, and on page 10 to replace after a crash of any kind. The stickers on the side will also tell you the weight limit to switch to the seatbelt, as do all seats made after 2/27/14.
