The Clek Foonf convertible car seat has brought a dynamic, fit-three-across car seat to most vehicles while carving out their own stylish design and not sacrificing, but rather improving, on safety. A “revolutionary tank” of a car seat, the Foonf comes with the Clek REACT energy management system, a steel anti-rebound bar, a system that uses a rigid LATCH connection for a super easy (no tightening) installation, well-engineered side-impact protection, and energy-absorbing foam layers. Not just that, but the Foonf has a narrow enough profile that it’s most likely that you can put three of these in your back seat comfortably. And kids love it. So it’s a win across the board, or should we say a win three-across the board?
The Foonf is the “big brother” of the Fllo, but in many ways they are the same. What the Foonf does that the Fllo doesn’t do (which costs more and weighs more than the Fllo) is provide rigid LATCH connections (the LATCH connectors are built into the base) and multiple recline angles (where the Fllo requires a repositioning of the car seat in order to adjust the recline).
The real reason to go for a Foonf over a Fllo is the tremendously awesome rigid LATCH system--which ensures a safe and secure installation every time and does not require you to climb and drop your weight into the car seat while pulling difficult-to-adjust-because-your-child-spilt-a-milkshake-on-them straps with all the might you can muster at 3 AM in the snow and cold. This just clicks right in every time.
The Foonf and the Fllo are very similar products. They both have relatively the same dimensions and weight/height limits. They are both very safe car seats--from the steel frame to the anti-rebound bar and side-impact protection. You can fit three across in the backseat of most vehicles. The fabrics are free of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants. You can take either one on an airplane, and the truth is that kids love both seats.
The Foonf is an award-winning stroller that’s changed the market since its arrival in 2014. The Foonf has won awards from both Consumer Reports (Top Pick) and Baby Gear Lab (Editors’ Choice). There are just a handful of car seats that can say that.
The Foonf is adored by parents, not just for how safe it is, but because getting that much safety in a narrow profile that fits three across the backseat means a lot. And the fact that kids love this, too? It’s a win, plain and simple.

Clek constantly uses the word “tank” to refer to their Foonf and Fllo car seats. And if that’s not enough, so does the rest of this world. These seats are heavy, strong, and well-built. They provide the comfort you want for long road trips, too. So peace of mind in a car seat that’s easy to install is worth a lot to us.
Our favorite part? As mentioned before, the rigid latch system on the Foonf. This makes the installation using LATCH so simple because there is no tightening involved. If you’ve ever been out in the snow pushing all of your weight down into the car seat while pulling straps that don’t want to move . . . you’ll understand why the rigid LATCH is so easy.
