The #1-rated Convertible Car Seat in America!
The NextFit® is engineered with innovative functionality to fit your vehicle and your child simply, accurately, and securely. NextFit® Zip also features a zip-off seat pad for machine washing.

Easiest to Install Correctly
NextFit® features a 9-position ReclineSure® leveling system and RideRight® bubble level-indicators to help achieve and verify proper angle in the vehicle seat. Premium LATCH connectors and a SuperCinch® force-multiplying tightener help achieve a secure installation with a fraction of the effort. (When it’s time to switch from rear-facing to forward-facing, the LATCH strap passes easily through the built-in slide path for proper repositioning.) NextFit® also has integrated belt lock-offs for alternate installation with the vehicle seat belt.

From Newborn through Preschool
NextFit® is built for growth with a removable infant insert and a six-position headrest. As the headrest is raised, the shoulder strap position also raises and widens to accommodate growing children without re-threading. The harness also features a one-pull tightener and removable, machine-washable shoulder pads. For easier in/out, NextFit® Zip is equipped with a padded ComfortFlex® harness management system that holds both sides of the waist belt out of the way until the child is ready to be buckled.

NextFit® has a steel-reinforced frame and is lined with EPS energy-absorbing foam for superior side-impact protection.

Product Manuals

NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat - Notte is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install. Easy to tighten straps Soooooo much easier to instal than your typical LATCH car seat. I literally have to sit and jump up and down and/or put my foot in the seat and push to get my daughters high back booster tight. What a pain!!!! This system is much easier. Tighten one side as much as you can and then pull down on the second strap. It’s like a pulley so it is half the effort and I get a snug fit every time. I’ve installed this seat in my parents maxima, my husbands F150 and my Odyssey forward facing and rear facing. As for the shoulder straps, start with them loose. Either loosen them every time you get the child out or loosen them before putting them in. Buckle all the buckles. Put your hand non tightening hand under the chest clip and raise it a little off the kids chest so you have some tension. THEN pull the tightening strap. Its much easier to tighten this way. Raising it off the chest gives it a clear path for the slack to go in above the shoulders. Relying solely on the tightening strap is so much more friction. I didn’t have trouble tightening straps even in rear facing. Be sure when installing in rear facing that you have the tail of the tightening strap in the car seat and it doesn’t get pinned between the car seat and the vehicle seat. Because once you cinch down on the LATCH straps that seat is so snug you won’t be able to get that tail out of there. It’s that snug. The zip feature is great for easy clean up! Genius. After the first couple times getting it on and off the seat is super easy. Fabric cleans up nice. Thanks for making a great seat Chicco. Looking at a MyFit for my oldest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my son life!!! Just got into bad car wreck last night, I literally turned around and my son acted like nothing happened. He didn’t see the truck coming that hit us from behind. but he’s alive and that’s all I care about.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality seat but doesn't work well rear-facing This carseat is a breeze to install, the fabric is heavy-duty, and I love how secure the seat gets. Right now I'm using the carseat in the rear-facing position. It is next to impossible to get the harness tightened from that angle. The seat is in the way, so you have to pull up on the strap instead of down and it's really hard to do. I went back to using her Chicco infant carrier as a carseat until I use this forward facing. I'm really disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great seat overall Love almost everything about this seat. I would even buy it again. My biggest complaint about the seat is that the zip feature makes it super easy to take out and wash, however the white plastic piping that runs around the seats edge is supposed to look like leather. Mine looks horrible after 2 years of washing it (not very often). It looks very worn. The white has worn off and is not very attractive anymore. The seat itself has a few stains, but other than that has stayed pretty stain free. I would recommend this seat on its ease of use rather than how it looks after 2 years. Had a Graco with my oldest son and it looks great still, however is not even close to being the caliber of seat this one is!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was given to my grandson as a gift from his Great Grandparents and my daughter LOVES it!!!! My Grandson is very comfortable in this seat!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended I've been using this car seat for a year, ever since my son was a newborn. It was the car seat we brought him home in from the hospital at 8 lbs. He's now 30 lbs and 31" at a year old and still rear-facing. Overall, the seats been amazing. The bubble level-indicators are great in ensuring the seat is properly level for your vehicle and the LATCH or seat belt installation options mean it can be installed in so many different vehicles. I was in a small accident where I was rear-ended and pushed into the vehicle in front of me so a double-impact accident. My son was in his car seat at the time and slept through the accident. I've never once felt my son was unsafe in his seat as it's very well-padded and, more importantly, very sturdy. Plenty of people thought I was crazy for opting out of an infant seat, but I never second-guessed my decision with the NextFit Zip. I've also washed it a couple of times since having it and it's a little tricky to get on and off the seat and the headrest cannot be washed, but being able to wash most of the material is a definite plus. When it comes time to purchase another seat for my second child, I will be purchasing another NextFit Zip, no questions asked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality! I bought this about a month ago and I love it. It for sure is heavy duty and I feel like it is great quality in the saftey aspect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safety first Love this car seat but I wish it was easier to adjust the straps in rear facing. Or reposition in rear facing

My husband was in a mild crash on a highway- he was rear ended and the person was going around 10 mph. There is minor bumper damage but that's it. Is it safe to still use our seat or does it need to be replaced?

Asked by: JoeandMaria
As stated in the product manual you must replace a Chicco car seat after any vehicle crash. We suggest that you contact your insurance company about replacement of your car seat.

I have leather seats in my car. Can the key fit convertible car seat be safely used with a car seat protector?

Asked by: SGlam1117
Chicco does not manufacture a seat protector nor do we recommend using any after-market seat protectors. Chicco does not allow the use of any accessories, pads, or products not included with the car seat.

Forgive my ignorance as I am a first time mom, but does this come with the base or is it attached to the carseat and comes as one? We have 2 different vehicles and two different sitters so I am trying to decide on what and how many I need to buy.

Asked by: carson8716
All NextFit convertible car seats come with the base attached. The base is not removable. Thank you for your inquiry.

In a rear facing position I can't get the latch system to tighten enough for the seat to be secure. Is that normal for some cars?  I drive a dodge mini van.
