Question Clek Foonf part found on floorboard...


New member
I recently traded out car seats, removing the Foonf. Tonight as I was cleaning out my car I found a part on the floorboard- I do not know what it is- never seen it and I am very familiar with the seat's parts (having gone through the removal of the cover last year...) Can someone please help me identify and solve this mystery? I figured I would try here first tonight since I won't be able to talk to anyone at Clek until tomorrow.

The part is black and exactly the same size as a wooden clothes pin. The underside does have a number "2" printed on the opposite side of the pin/fin.

Thank you in advance...I can always count on finding reliable and helpful information here!

Hi- it's a locking pin that holds the anti rebound bar on. Seats made after 10/2013 don't have them. Clek has instructions on their site to put it back in, just be sure to choose the one for the pre-10/2013 seats :)

Actually, it's the tool that's used for removing the headrest, and I believe it also plays a part in removing the cover (but it's been a long time since I've done that). It attaches to the plate that covers the harness on the back of the seat, so it's no wonder you haven't seen it before because it's kind of hidden.

Oh gosh, sorry! It looks just like the pins for the older seats. I had a foonf and I never knew a tool like that was there. Guess you're not the only one.
