PRODUCT:  Britax B-DUAL Second Seat Unit (www.britax.co.uk) Britax B-DUAL

DESCRIPTION:  An additional seat unit to fit on the rear of the Britax B-Dual 4 Wheeler chassis to transport a second child. Includes removable hood, 5-point safety harness, multi-reclining backrest, 2 x extension adaptors and an infant carrier fabric guard. Available in Neon Black, Blue Atoll, Purple Rain, Denim, Venetian Red and Aurora Green. Suitable to use from birth to 15kg (approx. 3 years).

ASSEMBLY:  The second seat is easy to fit by simply hooking the ends of its tubular frame onto the frame tube of the B-DUAL chassis, and securing it into the lower supports. Removal is also easy using the release buttons as instructed.

GOOD POINTS:  The Britax second seat unit is a great addition to the Britax B-DUAL 4 Wheeler, which is very easy to attach (see above), and converts it from a pushchair into a versatile inline tandem that can be used for carrying two children, from birth through to toddler.

The seat cover is well padded for maximum comfort for your child, and the backrest can be reclined to a number of positions via a simple adjustment handle on the rear of the backrest...perfect for very young or very tired children! In addition, releasing the clips on the rear of the seat unit enables the backrest to recline fully to a lay-flat position which is ideally suitable for newborns.

Britax B-DUALThe seat comes with an adjustable 5-point harness with chest pads to keep your child securely strapped in, and also a detachable showerproof concertina-style hood to provide essential shelter from the sun (and light showers). The hood has a useful viewing window (accessed via a zip around the centre of the hood), which is a large mesh panel that enables you to easily check your child from above, and also extends the hood down further to provide additional protection from the outside world.

The seat unit also includes two extension adaptors (or spacers), which can be used to expand the distance between the seats when using an infant carrier at the same time as the second seat. These 'spacers' simply slot into the fixation slots on the chassis. In addition, an infant carrier fabric guard is included which zips onto the chassis tubing to prevent a child in the second seat from reaching round the infant carrier and accessing any release buttons.

Note that this second seat unit does not need to be removed before folding the B-DUAL 4 Wheeler. Also note that the wheel guards on the rear wheels of the B-DUAL chassis usefully help to stop children in the second seat getting their fingers caught into the wheels.

In our opinion, this is a durable and easy-to-fit seat, which instantly transforms your B-DUAL into a versatile tandem with many travel options to meet all the needs of your children.

BAD POINTS:  The second seat unit has no shoulder strap height options to cater for your childs age/size.

PRICE:  Approx. £89
