Can I use a MA cover on a DC ?


New member
I know this might be a crazy question, but I was wondering if it would work. I thought the shells where the same so it would be ok. Please reasure me it will work fine and doesn't go against the rules. They are both Britax covers. Thanks

Britax says no, as I recall. The shells are mostly the same, but not exact. The Decathlon has another crotch buckle position, it doesn't have the same harness adjuster, it doesn't have the black LATCH bars screwed into the sides. So it's remarkably similar, but not exact.

Your right, I just called Britax and they said you can not switch them. You should only switch the MA covers for MA's and the DC for DC covers. Thanks for your help..
