    Question Why does the seatbelt keep locking on our monterey?

    My seven year old is in a Diono Monterey. The seatbelt kept locking on him so I removed the high back portion. Now he can buckle it easily. Is this a known issue with the Monterey? We do not have the same problem with the parkway sgl but I buckle that one for my 5 year old.

    When to start booster training?

    DS2 is turning 5 in a couple of weeks. He currently rides in a Frontier in our primary car and a Roundabout in our secondary car. His shoulders are almost to the top harness level in the Roundabout. Would you wait until he outgrows the Roundabout or start booster training him now? If you'd...

    Frontier as Booster - Questions

    I converted DS's Frontier to a booster and am not that pleased with it. The seat belt is sticky, it is very hard to buckle the seatbelt because the Frontier is so high and the fit seems to be off compared to his Monterey (especially on top of his thighs). We also have an evenflo amp booster...

    When would you be comfortable letting your child ride in a booster full time?

    My older DS is 6 (48 inches tall and 48 pounds) and he is currently riding in a Frontier 85 in my car (harnessed) and a new Diono Monterey in DH's car which is only used locally (he has been booster training for about 6 months - Diono just replaced the Monterey and the new one has the new belt...

    Which Diono Monterrey Seats have the redesigned belt guide?

    I have a 2/12 one and the seat belt was falling out of the belt guide. Called Diono and they sent me a 6/12 one but the belt guides look exactly the same to me.

    Why can't I see my thread under new posts?

    I have not been here in some time and I posted a thread about my monterey before the year end. For some reason, I have to go to my user profile to find it as it does not show in new posts for me. Anyone know why this is happening? ETA: It's happening with this one too! Is there something...

    How do I loosen LATCH straps on my Diono Monterey?

    I have read the directions and cannot for the life of me figure this out and the seat will not budge. Any tips? The directions mention a cam lock lever but I cannot even get to it since the seat is installed a bit too well I guess!

    Should I replace my Radian XTSL?

    I have a Radian XTSL for my 2 yo. It is installed with a seatbelt. However, I am now really uncomfortable using this seat given the company's appalling response regarding the LATCH loosening complaints. In addition to that, I have always hated the harness. I always find it extremly difficult...

    Question HELP: How do I remove bottom part of the cover of a Radian XTSL?

    My younger kiddo vomited all over his XTSL. Everything was easy to remove except the two snaps that can be found on the outside part of the cover on the bottom of the seat. When I pull the fabric, I do not see a metal snap, I see a rubbery-type strap going into the seat. I do not want to pull...

    Do you think infant car seats are overused?

    I most definitely think so. In fact, if had another baby :ROTFLMAO:, I would skip it entirely. I hate how I see them at the grocery store, at Target, Walgreens, the park, etc, etc.

    Can SK please make the Radian harness adjuster easier to use???!!!

    OMG. I swear every time I have to adjust that stupid harness. I love the seat otherwise, but seriously, mine is impossible to adjust when RFing (and no, it is not stuck)! We should send a petition to SK......

    Is there anything one can do to make adjusting a Radian harness easier?

    I always have a heck of a time adjusting the harness in the XTSL. I normally have to pull the harness from the back and then pull it in the front. The pulling in the front (by the adjuster) is very hard and seems to move a tiny little bit so I have to do this numerous times to get it adjusted...
