The #1-rated Infant Car Seat in America!
The KeyFit® is engineered with innovative features that make it the easiest infant car seat to install simply, accurately, and securely, every time. A ReclineSure® leveling foot and two RideRight® bubble level-indicators help achieve and verify proper angle in the vehicle seat.

For alternate installation with the vehicle seat belt, clear belt routing and integrated lock-offs make it easy to position, tighten and lock the belt into place.

KeyFit Infant Car Seat - Encore is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only car seat I’d ever purchase! I bought this for my daughter and it was the best choice! Extremely easy to install. Compact compared to other car seats so, they fit better in smaller cars. Great prints as well. I wouldn’t buy any other car seat. Absolutely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this carseat This was my 1st purchase of my researched for the baby list. I looked at every one on the market and the reviews all had this as the top rated seat. They were very right! My daughter loves this seat and it remained a staple with her until she outgrew it. I’ve had to use other seats while renting vehicles & this by far is the best one on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Grateful for This Carseat This is a review I never wanted to have experience to leave, but after enduring a devastating car accident that shattered windows on impact, deployed all air bags, and totalled my car with my 8 month old in it I can say this carseat does it's job. My daughter came out uninjured (thank God!), and has not even shown signs of soreness or being stiff. Added bonus to its incredible performance is ease of use and care, and attention to detail. We are Chicco customers for life now. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performed amazingly! The unthinkable happened. I had my two babies in the car. My 2 1/2 year old was forward facing in his chicco nextfit and my 6 month old in her chicco keyfit. A car came out of nowhere in front of us and we crashed into them. Our airbags deployed and our truck was totaled. Our babies however, were unscathed. Before, I bought chicco because they were soft and incredibly comfortable. I liked the ease of use with them and their excellent reviews. Now, I am buying two new chicco car seats because I know they will keep my children safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best infant car seat! I did lots of research before buying a car seat for our child, and this one was the best option! Our child is comfortable in it as well. We’ve had it a year and it still looks brand new, even after several trips to the park, airport, grocery store and many other places. Easy to install with the base, and easy to use without a base (although the base is SO convenient). No issues whatsoever. Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Car seat! We bought this car seat for my daughter in September 2017 when she was born and it is my favorite car seat to date! I purchased another (cheaper) Graco car seat for my husbands truck and we just ended up buying another base for this one because it was so much better than the other. It is a very comfy car seat and grows with the baby with the removable pads. It is very easy to wash and keep beautiful. The fabric is also very stain resistant. I would recommend this car seat to every one I meet! We are having another baby soon and I plan to keep using the car seat for him/her!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love !!! I owned my original keyfit for 4 years. I got it with my forst daughter and used it for my next 2. I only got rid of it because it expired, but this product is worth the cost and will last if taken care of. I washed and cleaned this careseat regularly. I bought the convertable chicco and love it just as much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Carseat so far! We have absolutely loved our Chicco! My in-laws purchased this seat for our son, and we were blown away at the ease of installation and transition from the car to the Keyfit Caddy stroller! I recommend it to all of my friends!

Do I have to remove the newborn insert and the head rest when my child reaches 11 lbs or do I just remove the newborn insert and keep the head rest in?

Asked by: Britt1102
The newborn body insert must be removed once the child reaches 11lbs.  You may continue to use the head insert.  The head insert must be fastened one slot above where the shoulder straps go through the back rest.   It cannot be fastened in the same slot as the harness straps. Once the harness straps are in the upper most slot you must discontinue using the head insert.

Is there any size or weight difference in the keyfit vs. the keyfit 30? Your site says the seat alone for the keyfit is 9lbs and the keyfit 30 is 9.6lbs but other sellers (amazon and target) show them as both 9lbs...

Asked by: USAFMomma
The Keyfit car seat weighs 9 lbs. This car seat holds a child up to 22 lbs or 30 inches (whichever one the child reaches first). The Keyfit 30 car seat weighs 9.6 lbs. This car seat holds a child up to 30 lbs or 30 inches (whichever one the child reaches first).
