    Interesting Lap Belt

    My DH had a 1972 Ford Truck fixed up and we are replacing the original lap belts with lap/shoulder belts. (This was an option in 1972 on the truck, it has the mount for the shoulder belt to bolt on.) I took some pictures because I have never seen, or don't remember using any seat belt set up...

    Question Questions on selling a couple of Marathons

    This is the first time I've looked into selling seats. I have 2 Marathons I'm looking at selling to fund a couple of new Radians. (My little guy needs some leg room and he is not getting any shorter or lighter :rolleyes:.) A couple of months ago my SIL asked me to let her know if I decided to...

    It's been a good week in my car seat world!

    So I've been certified since April and I'd say 90% of the checks I have done were first time installs with expectant parents. Which I think is great, an early intervention/education, but a little boring for the car seat nerd in me. But, this week I have had a couple of big successes and you...

    Buy a new seat or not... That IS the question.

    So yesterday I took my not-so little guy to the doc for his 18 month check-up. He weighed in at 29 pounds (clothed) and was 35 inches tall, so above the 97th %tile for height and between 75th and 90th for weight. That's been his trend since birth. His seated shoulder height is about 13...

    Help... What seat does she have?

    We were on vacation this weekend and stopped to visit my SIL. She asked me to look at her girls' car seats. Of course I didn't have my tech stuff with me, so I just peeked in the car and told her I would try to find a local tech for her. The baby, 11 months, RF is using a handed down...

    Your thoughts on conversion vans...

    We are going on a trip with my parents and have been planning on flying then renting a car. But last night my mom suggested it would be cheaper to just drive the 8 hours in their van. They have a 1996 Ford full size conversion van. I have not had the chance to look at the seat belts in the...

    Motion sickness

    I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this... Last week we went on vacation, 2 flights on the way there, a rental car and 2 flights on the way home. I bought a Scenera to travel with so we didn't have to lug a Marathon through the airports. DS is 13 months, 23ish pounds and is...

    Anyone have advice on a RF Scenera install on a plane? I know in most vehicles I need a noodle to get a decent recline. Will I need it on the plane too? Any other tips? THANKS!!!

    My 1st little success story...

    I have spent hours researching and reading about car seats in the last year, yet I usually don't say much on the topic in fear of offending someone or looking like an over-protective 1st time mom. But, yesterday I was talking to some ladies and car seats came up. I mentioned that I'm a little...

    Sitter using an OLD T SHIELD

    When picking up my DS at the sitters this afternoon we were chit-chatting and she mentioned that she only had 3 kids the other day and took them grocery shopping. She had 2 brothers, about 9 mo and 2.5 yo and another child 3-4 yo and mentioned putting them in car seats. It all sounded fine...

    Vent RF Marathon and issues with passanger seat

    Hello! I am happy to have found this board as I have become a car seat nut since having my son almost a year ago. We have a marathon installed in DH's car, a 01 Nissan Altima. It was a struggle to get it to fit since DH is over 6' tall and drives with the seat all the way back and reclined...
