Graco SafeSeat question

Do any of the Graco SafeSeats come with strap covers? I am not seeing any on Graco's site but I see several SnugRides that DO, which seems odd

Re: Graco SafeSeat question

I don't even think there are any Snugrides that do. You can order some off the Graco website I know.

Re: Graco SafeSeat question

Re: Graco SafeSeat question

Lotus and Milan do in SnugRides, not sure which others do.

The pseudo aftermarket strap covers on their site say not for use with the SafeSeat

Just seems odd that they'd make them for higher end SnugRides, but not higher end SafeSeats. I can see a parent getting a Snugride over a SafeSeat just because of that.

Re: Graco SafeSeat question

Oh, you are right... look at those strap covers on the Snugrides: (It looks like it is Metropolitan, Lotus, and Milan)

I bought a set off of Gracobaby.com and it didn't say anything about not for use w/the SS1. Now, the combo set (head rest & strap covers) says that, but the strap covers alone did not. I know...I bought the combo set...ended up giving it to a friend, then saw the strap covers alone, and it did NOT say it. I read it several times to be sure (they aren't on there now). So I ordered them.

Oooh yeah those nice snugrides come with strap covers....I've removed dozens of sets of them (they really push the chest clip way too low on newborns, so I'd always take them off right away, stick them in the ziploc bag with the instructions, lol).

Dunno what's up with the nice SS1's not having them
