hifold Fit-and-Fold Booster Seat
This is hifold: the world’s most adjustable high back booster. It’s perfect for families who want a car seat that is comfortable, portable, yet packed with safety features.
With over 243 individual settings in four adjustable zones across the head, torso, thighs and height, the hifold offers a highly customisable fit that provides optimum comfort for your growing child.
Weighing only 4.5kg, the lightweight design folds down to three times smaller than a normal high-back booster. The hifold is the perfect car seat solution for families who own their own car but do not want a bulky car seat permanently occupying a seat, grandparents who ferry their grandkids around, those who use car-sharing or ride-hailing services or taking along on vacation.
Takes under 10 seconds and relies on the existing three-point seatbelt to secure your child in, the hifold is safe and simple to use.

The hifold is the first-of-its-kind to carry certification for both European (ECE R44.04) and US ( FMVSS 213) safety standards with a patented design that optimises the seat belt fit of the lap belt and shoulder belt of a vehicle. Please note that this version of the hifold cannot be legally used or sold in Australia.
With a four-layer design and six impact protection zones located on either side of the hip, shoulder and head area, the hifold is made using advanced lightweight materials such as a polypropylene shell and EPE (expanded polyethylene) foam. EPE more energy absorbent, more elastic than other foams used in traditional booster seats and has strong cushioning and shock proofing qualities.
Here is the full 16 minute (!!!) version, but don't fret - we've called out the individual chapters below it also.

Preparing hifold for use:
Securing your child in a hifold:
From what age can my child use a hifold?
All children should continue to use a car seat with a five-point harness for as long as possible. Only when they have outgrown the height and weight limit of their current five-point harness car seat and when they can sit in the booster seat properly (without slouching under the lap belt, moving the shoulder belt under the arm or behind the back, leaning forward or sideways or moving out of position) so the vehicle belt remains properly positioned for the entire duration of each journey should caregivers consider moving children on to a hifold.
Taxi Baby Co. recommends children should remain in a harnessed car seat until at least four years old.
What height and weight range should my child be in to safely use the hifold?
The hifold fits a child of 15-45kg; 90cm to 150cm height who is also a minimum of four years old.
What colours are the hifold available in?
The hifold is available in two color combinations - Racing Red and Slate Grey.
Are the hifold seat covers removable and washable?
The hifold seat covers can be wiped down for spot cleaning and can be removed and machine washed if necessary.
What is the difference between a mifold and a hifold?
The hifold is a revolutionary, highly adjustable high-back booster seat with 243 individual setting to ensure optimal seat belt fit and comfort for every child as they grow. It offers the added support, comfort and protection that some parents are looking for in a highback booster plus it also folds down to solve storage and portability needs.
The mifold grab-and-go booster seat is a compact and portable child restraint that can be kept in a child’s school bag or glove compartment so that children can always be safe, no matter whose car they are in.
For those parents who use mifold as an occasional booster when their regular child restraint is not available, the hifold is a high-back booster option for those who have their own car but do not want a bulky car seat occupying a passenger spot, for grandparents who ferry their grandkids around, those who use car-sharing or ride-hailing services or take on vacation.
Is the hifold as comfortable as other high-back boosters?
The hifold has comfortable padded seats and with 243 individual settings, this means that the hifold can be adjusted to provide optimal belt fit and comfort.
Is the hifold difficult to set-up?
The revolutionary design of the hifold means that is can be set up in under 10 seconds, making it ideal for families on-the-go. It also folds down in five steps for storage.
Does the hifold recline?
While the hifold seat back is designed to adjust slightly to fit different vehicle seat back angles, the hifold seat itself does not have a recline feature.
What is the weight and dimensions of a hifold?
The hifold weighs 4.5kg. It folds down to a minimum width 344mm x height 250mm x length 344mm to fit in a small carry bag. When unfolded and expanded, it measures a maximum of 480mm x height 755mm x length 397mm.
Does the hifold use a LATCH or ISOfix system?
The hifold is a high-back booster seat that uses the vehicle installed adult seat belt to restrain the child and to hold the seat in place. It does not use a LATCH or Isofix systems.
Is this FAA compliant for airline travel?
The hifold is not suited for use on aircraft as it requires the use of a lap and shoulder seat belt system to hold your child and the hifold securely in place.
