Very safe but quite complicated to install

The amazing safety ratings on these car seats are what sold me on them. The space-saving narrow seat was a great bonus.
The issue is that they are heavy and difficult to install. My husband is the only one who can lift them, so he installed them every time and nearly lost his mind with frustration. The user’s manual is 93 pages of dense reading, so it’s not easy to troubleshoot if you run into and issue. Alarmingly, one of the straps for forward facing was detached on one of the seats and it doesn’t seem possible to reattach it. The folks at Clek sent us a new strap, which in no way solved the problem.
After two years of using them, finally replaced them with Nuna seats and couldn’t be happier.
- Incredibly safe and thoroughly tested by a team of engineers. Narrow width makes it easy to put three car seats in one row or squeeze an small adult between two of them.
- Only buy them if you plan to install them once and never take them out again.
- Incredibly heavy and impossible for a small person to lift.
- Very, very difficult to install and probably best to have an engineering degree to do so.

This is the safest seat. Comfy for kids. Easy to wash material.
on July 11, 2022
The most important things for us with car seats are safety and non-toxic, no flame retardants or stain repellents or any other chemicals and natural fabric (not polyester). This is the best seat available on the market that meets all these requirements. Wish it wasn't so extremely expensive but glad it can last 9 years. Also nice it is made in Canada.

One of the best seats on the market! So easy to install, great long life span. I had kids from ages 3 months-9 years old be comfortable in this seat. Long rear facing option with an anti-rebound bar. So many pluses for this seat!
on May 5, 2022
We love these seats! They have such a long life span. My youngest used it beginning at 3 months old with an infant insert and it fit her so much nicer than other infant seats. My oldest are almost 9 and have just reached the hight requirement. We also love that it allows for extended rear facing which was a must. The anti rebound bar gave me an additional peace of mind in the event of a crash. Another huge bonus is how slender the seat is. It allowed us to sit 3 across in both our Honda Odyssey and Honda Pilot. Super easy to install! The only concern is that it slid a bit on my leather seats so it was difficult to get a tight instal right away, but this seat allows for a thin towel underneath which fixed the issue right away!
Love our clek mammoth fllo
on April 30, 2022
We were originally sent the wrong seat, but Albeebaby corrected it and sent the right one immediately when I notified them. It was a quick easy process. As far as the Clek goes it makes fitting 3 across a breeze and the mammoth fabric is a big plus for me.
Good narrow seat, but a few issues
on April 28, 2022
Pros to this seat: it is quite narrow and I think overall comfortable for our toddler. It provides a lot of rear facing leg room and so even at 21 months, my ~70th percentile son isn’t looking remotely cramped rear facing.
Cons: the crotch strap must be on the inner slot when rear facing and even on the longest setting, the strap is short. This is already proving to be a fit and comfort issue for my son. I don’t know why the strap is so short. The harness straps also dig into his neck sometimes, leaving marks, with the shoulder pads or without.
Install was ok. Not as easy as the Nuna Rava we have in our other car, but not awful.
Overall I like the seat but prefer the Nuna Rava.

Very comfy, daughter loved it!
Great non-toxic car seat!
from Kansas City, MO
on February 24, 2022
I was searching for a long time for a car seat that was non toxic and this one is so great! I love the minimal design, and it doesn’t take up quite as much room as other car seats I’ve seen (which is a huge plus if you have a mid size sedan like me).
Excellent product, fast shipping
on February 22, 2022
This product was as described and we got a great deal! I was nervous about buying a car seat at such a discount, but it was manufactured the same year we bought it, so we got a quality product! It shipped as stated and we got up to date notifications as it was delivered. Would definitely buy another bigger ticket item from Albee again!
on February 7, 2022
The car seat is generally good, and I bought it for the great cash test figures. But the car seat is on the heavy side and the fact that it doesn't have a removable and washable cover knocks off a star.
- no removable and washable cover.

Love the look and function of this car seat. It was definitely not the easiest to install, but it’s built like a tank and feels very safe once it’s in!

solid, nice design, and high quality. We'll see how it holds up with kid number 5.

Love the size, style, and most importantly, the safety profile.

I like the seat compared to the Chicco my older kids have. My 1 year old likes it so far. Hopefully it lasts! Love the warranty that came with it.

We love this carseat because of how slim it is. We have two Clek carseats and they feel far less bulky than others.

- Very study and easy to install!
- Very little cushion. I would think this seat would be hard and uncomfortable on long car rides.
on November 25, 2021
We got this to primarily use in our RV as it fit into the narrow space easier than most other seats we looked at. It’s very good quality and seems comfortable.
Fire retardant free Convertible car seat!
from ADA, Michigan
on November 22, 2021
There are slowly more car seats coming out on the market without using unsafe fire retarded chemicals.. Wool is a naturally fire retardant material and is also great at regulating temperature. We love our clek fllo car seat and currently own 3. Only thing I wished was that it had a no rethread adjustment instead of manual adjustment.

We have purchased multiple cleks and are very happy,

Really enjoying the car seat. I know it's really comfortable because my son always falls asleep in it every time we head over to pick up my daughter from preschool.

Bought this one for my husbands small car and it fits great! I have the foonf in my car, we love both and so does baby! She has a great view, since she sits up high. Husbands car is so low and the other car seat was annoying but this one is perfect!

As a mom of 6 kids, I have had my fair share of car seats. We love our Clek Fllo. It’s simple, streamlined and looks great. So many baby items have so many accessories and features that just aren’t needed. My daughter is comfortable and I’m confident she is safe. Love all the fabric choices as well.
- Simple design
- Easy to clean
- Comfortable for baby
- Easy to install
- Slim design
- Airplane approved
- It?s a bit heavy, but most car seats are
Safety, comfort, coolness, and compact!!
from Dallas, TX
on August 8, 2021
This carseat is very comfortable for my son, even on longer road trips or just down the street. He has plenty of room in the seat at just under 2 years the stretch out, folks his legs, or hang them over the side. His keck doesn't look even the tiniest bit stiff when he falls asleep. He looks very safe and comfortable napping.
The material is super soft, it will get dirty and cleans fairly easily. The cushions and headrest seems almost pillow-like which is very cozy during car naps. Plush, yet, the temperature seems to stay cool; even in the Texas summer heat.
The size is narrow, but I have a tiny back seat area in my volvo v60 and it is a bit large still. Any carseat takes up too much space in my vehicle and this carseat has been the most compact.
Overall, I make it work for the tight space and love everything else!! My son seems to love it as well!!
I feel like my baby is so safe
on July 25, 2021
Let me just say I researched for weeks before deciding on this one. the only downfall is you can't wash the carseat cover but it has a eco friendly stain guard on it and def can be cleaned with a cloth. The baby loves it and just chills the whole time in the car seat. Such a difference from his infant. Let me tell you the seat is so secure it doesn't move at all if you shake it. Don't hesitate to buy. I feel like my baby is so safe in this seat.

Very stylish, great fabric, kid looks like he sits comfortably in there. Love it!

We use Clek Fllo’s in my husbands GMC Sierra and they are perfect for 3 across. Shipping was fast and easy.

Great seat. Very narrow so we can fit three car seats in a row. Easy to install. Many fabric options.

I love this seat, just ordered our third. This is the first time ordering the FR free fabric option, we have three different colors now. But it's easy to install, easy to clean, looks great in the car! I plan to buy one for every kid (if we have more)

This car seat is so nice! Our little guy loves it! It sits so high up he can see out the windows of our suv and loves looking out! It’s also so easy to get him in and out of it! It’s revolutionized our car rides!
Also the fabric is so soft and comfy!

Love our carseat, get lots of compliments on it. I love the safety feature of the anti rebound bar. Getting a second for our next child! Albee baby has been easy and great to order from!

Solid, high quality, and narrow
on July 5, 2021
I have 2 Nuna Ravas but decided to try the Clek after a friend recommended. So glad I did. Every bit as high quality as the Nuna, decently easy to install, and nice merino wool cover that meets OEKO-TEX standards, plus an anti-rebound bar AND its narrower than the Nuna. Trying to do 3-across now and wishing I’d just gone with the Clek from the start. Also, I think the rear-facing leg room beats Nuna’s. My kids are tall—we had to switch our daughter front facing earlier than I would have liked because she was so cramped-looking in her rear-facing Nuna Rava. Note: no strap holds but you can slide the metal part of the buckle between the plastic and cloth part of the outside seat to keep it from under your children’s bottoms when getting them in. Works just fine.

We love the fllo and have bought these for all 3 of our children. They are well made and not heavy to carry. They also have a slim profile which is absolutely required if you have more than 2 car seats installed. We also love tokidoki, so a win-win for us.

We needed a narrow carseat for my husband's car, and the Clek is great! Very sturdy, easy to get our toddler in/out, and I appreciate the lack of harmful chemicals and flame retardants. Highly recommend!
on June 6, 2021
This is my third Clek Fllo car seat. They fit three across which I need for my grandchildren. Spills wipe off easily. The children seem comfortable while riding in them. They are a bit more difficult to adjust than other car seats I have owned which is the only reason I only gave them 4 stars. Overall they are a great product.

This seat is built like a tank! We feel so safe with our son in it. We have a CR-V which it fits well in with the anti rebound bound bar in place. We also bought one for our Civic and the install with the anti-rebound bar was really tight. Our son will be 22lbs soon so we can sit it up a bit more vertically soon and hopefully that will give us a bit more room.

I needed 2 slim convertible car seats for the back of my car, and these did just the trick. Slim, yet sturdy and safe. I love them!
- Slim, safety features, extended rear facing.
- Heavy, no rethread harness.
Narrow and no Fire Retardant substances
on April 18, 2021
I have purchased the Clek Fllo (Mammoth Wool) to be able to carry my kids around in my Lotus Evora GT. The Car has a small back seat area fitted with all the provisions to attach a car seat. The problem is finding a narrow and short height seat. The Clek fits perfectly. I am 5'11" and can still drive the car with the seat installed right behind the drivers seat. My 25lb child can fit there and neither of us has compromises in regards to leg room. Although, I would not recommend for a long driving period of time, it gets the job done for local drives with the entire family.
The Mammoth Wool material feels soft and has no off gassing smells. I feel comfortable leaving the car seat in my car at all times, and not worry to find an invisible toxic cloud of fire retardant substances. The seat looks great and feels secure. I've had prior experiences with the Nuna Rava that's fitted in our SUV. The Clek Fllo is just narrower, but it does feel as secure.
- Fits on tighter spaces.
- No off gassing (Mammoth Wool).
- Premium Material feel.

I love the compactness of this car seat! Fits rear facing in my 2017 Ford Taurus behind the passenger seat or in the middle and forward facing behind the driver as well. Graco infant car seat fits right next to it so still plenty of room for another passenger. Haven’t taken it apart to clean it but the fabric is very wipe able. I use the harness straps to secure it which are very easy to use. Haven’t tried using the seat belt method.

Got another Fllo for my daughter to match my son’s. The chrome color is beautiful and the fabric is soft. I wish it wasn’t so heavy but safety is worth it! Great price on Albee!
on April 9, 2021
As always we love our seat and the quality. We’ve purchased 3 seats in total from Albee baby and they’ve always been very quick with shipping and never any damage to the product. Albee baby also always has the best pricing !!

My second Fllo car seat purchase- they are sturdy, flame retardant free, and have a narrow base so they easily fit in small cars or 3 in a row. Love it! A bit hard to install but not a problem if you won’t be moving it around much. Also my 3rd carseat purchase from Albee and they are great! Fast fast shipping, quality products, good prices and great customer service.

I'm ashamed to admit the number of different car seats we have used over the years. We've had car seats gifted from baby registries and we've purchased a few ourselves. This is the first car seat that we absolutely loved. Actually, I'm pretty bummed that they discontinued the style that we purchased just last year because we would like 2 more of the same ones for my husband's vehicle. We love the easy of securing the 5 point harness as well as how easy it is to remove the harness.
- Ease of use, easy to secure to vehicle with latch system
- Difficult to secure to car with lap seat belt, has to be completely uninstalled from car to adjust to child's size

We loved this car seat , first for all security reviews we saw on internet, the design also it’s nice , my son like more that the one he used to have , it’s higher so he feel like a big boy seeing everything by the window , it’s the second product we have from this brand and for sure we will still buying for our little one too.
- Heavy than others convertibles cars seats

I love the car seat. My son constantly cried in his infant car seat but is much more happy now in his Clek because he can see out the window and is a little bit more upright. I love the all black because it goes with my car and is sleek looking. I love that it’s also narrow so it gives more space in the back seat. Definitely will get a clek again if I have more kids!
- Required a lot of steps to adjust and install and was a bit tricky
