    Seat belt buckle cover?

    Thanks for this; glad to hear the side movement shouldn't be any extra distance. Switching sides still puts the buckle on the dog side. My oldest is 11 now, and for 11 years, I've wondered why automakers can't ensure the buckles are toward to outsides of the car seats, between the passenger and...

    Seat belt buckle cover?

    Hi, we are getting a puppy who will be about a 50lb adult dog. The plan is for him to travel in the third row (passenger side) in our Odyssey, restrained in a sleepypod harness. But my youngest is travelling in a Grow with You on the driver's side...the seat belt buckle is on the dog side of the...

    HBB in 3rd Row of 2015 Honda Odyssey

    I've got a Monterey XT in the third row of my 2017 Odyssey (it's too wide for the middle seat but fits outboard). The Odyssey headrests in those seats pull up and then move back to align with the seatback so they don't push the booster forward at all...in that regard, a great fit (they fit in...

    Booster headrest very near to SRS stamp Odyssey

    Hi, I'm doing the carseat shuffle with three kids in our 2017 Odyssey and have put my small almost-8yr old in his Monterey XL, in the back row, driver's side. He's only 49" tall (don't recall seated height) so his headrest isn't very high. I noticed that the top outside edge of the booster...

    Tallest harness height seat (or one coming soon)?

    Thank you for your reply! I wondered about the standing height limits...if the child fits by harness height and weight, the standing height limit seems to add little. Good to hear that they're not as important. Thank you.

    Tallest harness height seat (or one coming soon)?

    Hi, thanks for those replies. I think we're going to go ahead with the MyFit (he's tall and while torso is longish, legs are very long, so I think MyFit will harness him longer than Grow With Me - 54" vs 49" standing height). I've scoured this site and the internet in general and can't find any...

    Tallest harness height seat (or one coming soon)?

    Thank you! The harness heights go an inch and a half higher than the sureride?! That would definitely buy me a year or two-ish more. Redesigned after the consumer reports debacle? Are manufacturers attempting to replicate that testing to ensure they don't face that scenario again? Thanks again...

    Tallest harness height seat (or one coming soon)?

    Hi all, well my preemie 3lb-er is finally a big boy and I need some help. He's 5 yrs old, 48 lbs an 46" tall, and growing insanely fast. He is FF in an evenflo sureride and is moving to the highest harness slot today. Which will likely do him about a year-ish, give or take (he's gone from size 5...

    Odyssey seatbelt jamming on Frontier clicktight beltpath plastic

    I have two Frontier CTs in my 2017 Odyssey. They're new (accident replacements 6 mo ago). I had one in the middle, third row seat (alone back there), and the other in the driver side 2nd row. I noticed that the seatbelt buckle is getting caught on the plastic edge of the beltpath on the back...

    Post-collision replacement criteria?

    Hi, we were stopped in traffic today when we were rear ended by an SUV (a guy staring at his cell on his lap - so he didn't brake at all before impact) and pushed into the car in front of us. Our Odyssey has some damage to the front driver side, but the back bumper is split in several places...

    Help! 4 year old loosening his harness

    Hi, so my middle child is 4, 41lbs and 42", in a Britax Frontier CT. He's also a hard-headed, pain in the....carseat, who, once he finds a button, will not stop pressing it. We were doing 70km/h two days ago, when he proudly said "look! my carseat!" He'd loosened it to the point where his arms...

    Deepest HBB with narrow footprint?

    Hi, my 7 year old daughter is 55lb, 53" and is all arms and legs. She's harnessed in a Frontier, but it's time to move her to a booster. She could probably last a bit longer in the harness, but the straps are cutting into her neck on either side, she's also still not able to buckle/unbuckle the...

    New car for three across

    Love this forum, I've been coming here for help since my 7 year old was a tiny baby! I have three kids: 22 months (28lbs, 33", delayed, deaf, nonverbal, RF Fllo ), almost 4 (39lbs, 39.5", FF in a Britax Boulevard CT) and 7 year old (50lbs, 51", FF in Britax Frontier CT). They are in our 2007 Kia...

    New convertible for wide-shouldered baby

    Hi, my youngest is 6 months (16lbs, don't know how long, but in 6 month clothes). He's a preemie, born at 31 weeks, so although a nice size and with fairly good head control, he's nowhere near sitting up (not even rolling over yet). He's in a chicco keyfit 30, slightly above second harness...
