Installation process

The steel anti-rebound bar comes into use when installing the seat in rear facing mode and is optional. When a crush occurs, it prevents rotation into the seat’s back in seconds. Manufacturers like Britax, Combi and Diono use rear facing tethers to achieve anti-rebound but Clek chose ARB to provide the same. In Canada, the idea of using rear facing tethers is against and that is the reason Clek, a Canadian origin uses ARB. The ARB feature increases the front to back space that you would be needing for your rear facing installation by about one and half inch. The base will conveniently fit on the flat surface of the seat so you need not worry about the kind of seat you have.
