Angle check please!

Safety first Avenue install RF with seat belt in a 2010 Toyota Camry.
The first picture is from the first installation with a towel at 30 degrees. Because the techs here said it was too upright we made a second installation.
The second picture is from the second installation with the pyramid of pool noodles at 40 degrees. This was perfect for the baby, she was comfy and there was no head slump wile sleeping.

That looks good. Were you able to teach the parents how to install?

Re: Angle check please!

Yes, that looks like somewhere around 40 to me. Much better for sleeping for a 1 year old.

It was 40.2 with the ihandy level app, yes I told her what to do and she made the installation, the only thing I help was to check the movement, she is one of those parents that listen and want to do it right, the dad ask me when she was going to ride FF, he ask about the legs, I just show him the most recent picture of my DD in her Radian, and I put my DD in the Avenue to show him how she fits without any problems, so he says that he is on board to 2 y/o but he doesn't think he will like it after that, but just that is a big difference from yesterday that he was ready to turn her FF. I will print some information for him to read, hopefully he can be on board until 3?

I missed your response somehow. Isn't it a great feeling when parents take your advice and follow through?! I'm glad you were able to help them- I'm just waiting to be able to take the tech course too
