    Sure Ride has arrived at BRU Canada

    I'll post some pictures from my phone after I've typed this out. The important stuff: - 5-40lbs rf'ing, up to 40". - 22-65lbs ff'ing Recline stand is very different and to put the seat in to upright mode involves flexing part of the shell - I took pictures of the area that gets flexed and how...

    Peg Perego Convertible Recline stuck?

    The BRU that I work at has a Peg Convertible display from an online return a week ago, and it has gotten stuck in the full recline position. I've checked for debris, misrouting of straps - anything that could be interfering with the adjustment of the recline, and there's nothing visible - it...

    Question Airbag "off" switches not allows in the US anymore?

    I was reading a government document about changes to CMVSS standards after getting a question today, and came across this blurb: For those of you who follow the US regulations more closely than I do - can you give me more details? What do people who have a pick-up truck without a back seat do...

    It's been awhile since I've looked through the Transport Canada research testing and today I was looking through the ff'ing info. There is very specific discussion regarding lower anchor forces and whether they failed at different speeds and different weight dummies. Some of the tests were...

    Border policy for non-Canadian seats

    I met someone who works at customs the other day and was told that they have a formal policy to confiscate and destroy any seat that isn't CMVSS certified when it's being shipped or brought in to Canada. She said that they treat them exactly like baby walkers. I thought this was interesting to...

    EZ-on vest w/child who unbuckles seatbelt

    Is the EZ-on vest something that would work with a child who unbuckles the seatbelt? Child is too old/big for any harnesses available up here. My hope is that something like a buckle guard might be all it takes, but I don't have any hands-on experience with the vest so was hoping for some...

    Graco bases and backwards compatibility

    I followed up with Graco after the last post in the forum regarding using new bases with old seats and got some clarification. They have maintained backwards compatibility of the new bases with old seats on both the SR22 and the SR32/SR35. New seats cannot be used with old bases, but old seats...

    Ds outgrew the Nautilus

    It's a sad day... Ds has reached the point in the Nautilus where it was too hard to tell if he was even with the slots or a smidge over the top harness slots so I took it out of the car today and moved the Frontier from the truck to the car. He is about 1/4" away from moving to the top harness...

    Gen2/G3 Britax seats vs. Peg Convertible

    We just recently got the Peg seat in to Canada and I could use some info regarding how the 2 seats directly compare so far as fit of child goes. I'm aware of the headrest height rules regarding the Peg rf'ing. What I'm wondering, is which seat lasts longer rf'ing by height, and for those of...

    Use of Radian over top harness slots (Canadian specific.)

    The last I heard from Diono, it was NOT allowed to go over the top harness slots of the Radian line of seats in Canada. I just read a review on the TRU.ca website talking about how it was the only seat that allowed shoulders over top harness slots and I'm assuming from the review that it's...

    Ford 2013 Escape - anyone tried to fit a booster in one yet?

    I was trying to help a family at work this last Saturday who said their old boosters didn't fit without blocking the buckle stalk, so I went out to their vehicle with them to see exactly what was going on. They have a new 2013 Escape with leather interior. The seat I took out with me was a...
