    Three Across Honda Odyssey

    Also ,double check store return policies, we have been hearing reports of some individual stores and chains that are not accepting returns on car seats due to COVID.

    Fitting 3 car seats in a 2006 Durango

    Hello and welcome, I don't have specific suggestions for your vehicle, as this is often trial and error. I can refer you to some general suggestions here: https://carseatblog.com/49714/3across/ Your oldest definitely needs a top-tether anchor for his forward-facing harness seat. He is old...

    Question Rear facing convertible seats-head falls forward when asleep

    Hi Opal, What is the brand/model of your car seat please and is it installed facing the front of the vehicle or facing backward? This sounds like it may be an installation problem, possibly inadequate recline. If you would like to register or visit our facebook group, you can also attach a...

    Will the Nuna Pipa fit in a 2013 Honda Civic?

    A PIPA will almost certainly fit in the outboard seats, though you will lose some room up front. This is going to be the case with any rear-facing seat in a compact vehicle. I have put one in a few Civics, though I'm not 100% sure there was one of your generation. Middle seats can be...

    Graco milestone reviews

    Also, the SlimFit is very similar to Milestone and may be easier to find. https://carseatblog.com/43628/graco-slimfit-all-in-one-review/

    Two diono rxt seats and a Solano booster

    Apologies for the delay. I am sorry to say this might be one best handled by a local technician or by contacting Diono directly to see if they can help you with a virtual appointment. Three across situations can be tricky even in person, so it can be very difficult to give guidance on a very...

    2012 Honda oddessey

    Hello and welcome. There is no fixed age, weight or height to determine this. Correct fit of an adult seatbelt varies a lot with child and vehicle and even among different seating positions in the same vehicle. 4 feet, 9 inches (57") is an older guideline that is no longer typically used...

    booster for larger kiddo

    Bummer, worth a try, though. At least free returns if you picked it up at Walmart!

    Dvd player

    Hi Lois, What rear-facing car seat do you have? If the video screen is very well secured and your car seat model has an anti-rebound feature, such as an anti-rebound bar, a rear-facing tether or a load leg, then any risk of attaching a hard object to the vehicle head restraint is probably...

    Chicco MyFit Harness + Booster in 2013 Toyota Camry

    Hi, I have merged your two threads. Chicco generally does not allow gaps like this, but you should verify in your manual if this applies to your model. At least on some versions of the Graco Nautilus, as one example, a small gap like in your photos may be acceptable in harness mode, but not...

    Tether anchor retrofit for our 1996 Chevy Caprice

    For a typical 6-year old at 75 lbs, you can also use a backless booster. You still need a vehicle seat with a lap AND shoulder belt, like any booster. As mentioned, you would not need lower anchors or top tether attachment with a booster seat, though some offer these attachments for...

    Chicco MyFit Harness + Booster in 2013 Toyota Camry

    Hi Nik, Fixed protruding head restraints can be an issue with many car seats and it's really hit or miss. With a Britax Grow With You, for one example, the top of the main shell fits just under the head restraint in some vehicles if you can really compress it into the seat cushion. Then the...
