    Will rigid latch on Clek Oobr work in a Ford Expedition 2017 EL?

    I had a rigid latch booster from Clek a while back that we could not get to fit into our Honda Pilot (I don't remember the exact problem - perhaps it did fit in one of the seats, but it was not the seat that that child needed to be in due to other kids' needs, etc....I can't recall). I returned...

    Need convertible seat for 1 year old - round 2

    Hello, So I bought a Clek Fllo for my 1 year old and went on a trip and he was so uncomfortable. :( He is right at the cutoff for the 'infant thingy' and also his head is a strange shape in that it is sort of bulbous in the back, and I think the way the headrest sits is just right where it...

    BMW 320i Xdrive versus audi A5 AWD 2013-ish

    Hello, My dh is looking for a new to him used car. He may be having a mid life crisis as he has determined he wants a luxury type car, sedan (due to gas mileage) and AWD because we live in SLC and he goes skiing a lot. He is looking at around 2013 because he can get that for the low 20s which...

    Can't install Clek Oobr in 3rd row of Pilot

    Ugh, I'm so sad about this! I ended up getting a Clek Oobr for my 6 year old that I found on sale - last one. It was still a lot of $$ though, way more than I should spend, but I got really hung up on the safe fire retardant thing and ordered it. But it really needs to go in the 3rd row...

    clek oobr - will the rigid latch work in my car?

    I am kind of interested in the Clek Oobr for my 6 year old. It would need to go in the third row of my pilot though - preferably on the passenger side. I am looking for measurements, etc. - but am a bit confused about the rigid latch and how I can know for sure if it will work there. I've...

    Silly to get a Nextfit for a 3.5 year old ?

    I was originally trying to decide between a few different Gracos for my 3.5 year old, 36", 33lb boy. But I saw a deal where I can get a Nextfit for $239 plus a $100 gift certificate comes with it (someone posted here about this - at BB&B). so after tax that is around $160. I'm tempted but...

    Chicco Kidfit - can you wash the whole cover?

    I am looking at this seat and my daughter really likes the pattern print of the zip cover - but can you remove the rest of the cover for washing, or just the zipped part? Thanks!

    Is there a safety difference when there is a large price difference?

    I'm debating a few car seat purchases right now. I got some great suggestions in another thread about needing to fit 4 into my pilot. I am looking at the britax frontier vs. graco nautilus for my 3 year old. Is there a safety difference in comparisons like this or just features, etc. ? I'm...

    hello, We have a britax marathon from 2011. it seems that all of the little clasps that hold the cover onto the seat are gone, except two. So the cover keeps sliding all around and coming out of place. Is this a safety issue? If so, are folks usually successful trying to just replace...
