    Question Frontier 90 manual question

    My fr90 is in contact with vehicle seat top to bottom... On pg 24 of the manual, it says to be sure the top of the seat does not rest against vehicle seat back while reclining. What does that mean? The top vs the back? Confused! Sent from my iPhone using Car-Seat.Org

    Foonf question, mostly...new seat decisions

    I love the pria, but hate that the harness adjuster and head rest are connected. I just can't love the way Big-headed, long-necked A fits. I have trouble telling if her shoulders are below the harness. Peg is same problem, maybe worse. A wouldn't sit in it, and I still preferred Pria overall...

    RN install clarifications

    We got a new car (Infiniti jx). When installing our RN  with LATCH, I was having trouble getting the three "touch points" to all touch with the boot in the seat (bight?). The seat was essentially floating but tight. Pull the boot out  and the seat bottom touches the seat, but the boot is pretty...

    Radian shoulder width

    I am noticing after a few weeks of use that my daughters shoulders at times seem too narrow for the RN. Sometimes it seems like it slips down over to the edge of her shoulder too far. I have resolved by inching the chest clip up a bit and tightening further (although passes pinch test before...

    Radian Install Questions

    So, I was reading up on the Superlatch issue. We currently have ours installed RF with latch, driver's side outboard in a 2005 Prius. I've check the latch since I read about this but not seeing any loosening. Is it still an issue in the newer Radians? Would you just go ahead and do a belt...

    Seeking opinions on rf

    Hello, I keep adjusting my rf goal on my husband, so I'm curious, what age do you think is reAsonable (I get the as long as possible thing, but trying to seek reasonableness from seasoned advocates!).

    Britax Boulevard in 2005 Prius

    Hi, I just ordered a Britax Boulevard and was wondering if rear-facing center install w/ LATCH is allowed in our '05 Prius? Also, just curious, would you keep a 5 month old in an infant seat as long as possible (she wouldn't probably outgrow till her first birthday) or would you install the...
