    Baby Trend Flex-Loc $50 on Woot

    www.kids.woot.com has the Baby Trend Flex-Loc up today for $50 (+$5 shipping). The last time I bought a car seat from them, it had a reasonable DOM (within 6-8 months of current), especially for the price I got, but I don't know if that's typical of the seats they sell.

    Returning a registered seat?

    So um, hypothetically speaking :whistle: ... let's say you bought a new seat and immediately filled out the registration card and mailed it away like they tell you to do. THEN you tried to install the seat in your vehicle and decided that you may want to return it. Has anyone ever done this? Is...

    How upright is your CA?

    Okay, just got the CA, and I realize that the level-to-ground line on the side is intended to give a 45-degree angle. Since the seat is for my 34-lb 2.5 year-old, I certainly want it more upright. DJG insists that the seat is at 45-degrees while RF, which seems like utter nonsense (and...

    Car seat confessions

    So I've got a big :o face on right now. Here's my confession: I was strapping DS2 into his RF MA today and couldn't figure out why the heck one side of the harness seemed tighter than the other. I fiddled with it a bit, loosening and tightening and feeling to make sure the splitter plate...

    Booster recommendations for a REALLY big kid.

    Local Public Health office is requesting help locating a booster seat for a kid who is 110 lbs, 6 years old, 4'4." He is obviously quite overweight and the regular booster seats are too narrow for him. Booster seats are not my forte. What would you suggest trying?

    RF tethered MA - can the tether be vertical?

    A friend is installing her MA RF and wonders if the tether can run exactly vertical to the floor where she has her tether point. It does not go under the seat or backward at all, just straight down. Is that allowed? TIA!

    Anyone else watching Amazon Gold Box today?

    It looks like the next item up on Amazon Gold Box deals is a car seat of some sort. The description is: "Save big on a car seat for every size." Does that mean Alpha Omega or EB 3-in-1? I'm so curious! About an hour and a half left until we know!

    Minnesota mamas - donate expired seats!

    The high school in Rogers, MN is looking for old infant seats to be used for their Child Development classes so teens can transport their fake babies to and from school.

    Question Nautilus harness adjustment?

    I've not had the pleasure of playing with the Nautilus in person, but have been stalking it online for a while, preparing to recommend it to someone in need of a new seat. So my question is: Can you adjust the harness height without uninstalling the seat? The seat will likely be shared among a...
