  • Patent number: 11370334
    Abstract: The present invention provides a rotatable safety seat includes a seat body, a seat base and a rotation component. The rotation component is slidably connected between the seat body and the seat base. The seat body is slid relative to the seat base via simultaneous shifting and rotation. The rotation component is slidably connected between the seat body and the seat base. During slid of the seat body, the seat body is shifted due to the slide, the seat body is shifted because of the slide, so as to move the seat body close to or away from the seat base; in the meantime, the seat body is rotated when being shifted, so that the infant or the child on the seat body is moved close to or away from the caretaker according to the actual demand. The present invention further provides a carrier with the rotatable safety seat.
