Stand Out Features of this Car Seat

European baseless routing

This seat can be installed baseless with European or American/Standard belt routing. You can find a video showing both of those methods here. The European routing method is preferred! European belt routing means the shoulder belt portion of the seat belt is routed behind the shell of the rear-facing seat, limiting its ability to rotate down in a frontal crash. This routing functions similarly to a load leg. Pretty cool, huh?!

Railroad and Mammoth fabric options are flame-retardant free

If having a seat with flame-retardant-free fabric is important to you, check out the Railroad and Mammoth fabric options!

Lower Anchors On the Infant Seat

The Clek Liingo is one of a handful of infant seats that has the option to utilize a lower anchor installation without the base. They are attached to the seat via a storage compartment.  This piece can be removed if you prefer to do a seat belt installation. 

Seat is good for you if 

hearts-suit

You are expecting/have a small baby or preemie.

If you’re expecting a possible preemie, multiples, or a baby with IUGR, the Clek Liingo is a great option! The lowest harness setting is only 4″ high. And the Liing’s newborn insert promotes excellent head positioning. Meaning, the Liingo will fit even the tiniest of new additions perfectly from that first ride home. We love it so much that it makes our list of best preemie car seats! For parents shopping for a premium car seat to fit their small newborn, the Liingo is the clear winner!

hearts-suit

You have a small backseat.

This is one of the most compact infant seats you can find. It’s likely your best option if you have a smaller back seat and/or very tall front passengers.

hearts-suit

You need to fit 3 car seats across in the back seat.

This is a very good option for 3 across. You will likely need to do a seat belt installation if you need to fit 3 across.

You travel often with a car seat.

As we have mentioned, this infant seat is one of very few that has lower anchors attached to the carrier portion of the seat. This makes it a particularly good option if you are traveling internationally to a country that has lower anchors in the vehicles, so you could skip bringing along the locking clip to do a seat belt installation. 

Use caution if

c-warning

You would prefer a lightweight infant seat.

While the Clek Liingo is not the heaviest seat on the market, at almost 12 pounds, it’s still on the heavy side. If you remove the inserts and the lower anchor storage bin, it gets closer to 9 pounds.

Quirks to be aware of

c-question

Weight of the car seat

The Clek Liingo car seat is slightly heavier in comparison to other infant seats, weighing around 12 pounds when the inserts and lower anchor storage bin are in use. It’s important to consider your individual needs and lifestyle to determine if the weight of the Clek Liingo is manageable for you. While the additional weight may be a consideration for some parents, it’s important to note that the Clek Liingo offers exceptional features and functionality that can outweigh the slight increase in weight.

Airplane Use

The Clek Liingo is a recommended seat for both domestic and international travel as it is FAA-approved. When traveling within the United States and Canada, getting a secure installation without a base is a breeze, as the seat belts in these countries have locking mechanisms that ensure a secure fit. For international travel, you may be able to do a lower anchor installation if the vehicles are equipped with lower anchor points. If you are not sure, you will need to contact the manufacturer for a locking clip and learn how to use it before you travel.
