    RideSafer Vest? Any User Reports?

    A little late to the game, but I use the RSTV on a fairly regular basis. My 7 year old prefers it to a booster because it allows her to use the seat warmers in my back seat. :ROFLMAO:

    1990 Ford with rear bench seat and lap belts

    In the short run, you should be able to install the one car seat with the center lap belt. Those side belts are what we need to evaluate more closely. I know you said they don’t lock, and it’s entirely possible this is the case, but often these seat belts can be deceiving so humor us a little...

    1990 Ford with rear bench seat and lap belts

    Hi, Janelle!! I’ll answer the easiest part of the question first: There is no way to safely add a LATCH system to your vehicle. While there are aftermarket products available that claim to serve this function, they are extremely unsafe. Before I dive in to the rest of the questions, can we...

    ISO Coccoro Sets

    So, I don't log on here that often. But I think I've still got it downstairs. The seat is long gone, but I think I've still got the cover. I'll try to find it tomorrow.

    Will this car seat work with my Honda Element

    The problem with this is that very few children will fit in a removable carrier-style car seat until they are old enough for forward facing. We do have a few new swivel options on the market that might work. But if those are out of budget or not a good fit for the vehicle, the earlier...

    Car-Seat.Org Email Issues

    Hey, Darren. I logged in due to Facebook being down (LOL) and I've lost access to, like, everything. There was a message in my CSO inbox about not being able to reach me via my email address (which has not changed). I updated a little profile info but I'm still not able to get to the community...

    Safety 1st onBoard™35 LT infant car seat p

    The Onboard is actually one of my favorite seats. I miss the higher-end versions they used to make (the one I had for my girls 10 years ago had a lock-off on the base and a really easy to use height adjustment system; but it did cost more). But I work with the current models on a regular basis...

    Four kids in a Yukon XL or something similar?

    I was able to get a Britax Boulevard ClickTight rear facing in the back of a 2000 Suburban, but it was really tight and I had to remove the head rest in the 2nd row to make it fit (which was OK because I had another car seat there). I've been able to get a Graco 4Ever Platinum rear facing in...

    Whiz Rider?

    Same. There are some glaring issues that might not affect safety, but many of us believe would affect legality. Their design is similar to one that the Ride Safer Travel Vest used for their "Version 3" tetherless vest a few years ago - but they admitted that this version of the vest was not...

    Harmony Folding Booster

    No, it's been vaporware for YEARS. Long before COVID reared its ugly head. I've been watching for its retail release since about 2015.

    Harmony Folding Booster

    Yeah, Aeryn actually never rode in it!! She was still in a harness about the same time that mine was expiring, and even if it hadn't expired she probably would have been at or near the height limit at that time. Alexandra would use one if I had it though, as she is MUCH smaller - only about 44"...

    Harmony Folding Booster

    Can I just say how sad I am that the Harmony World Traveler booster is vaporware? I have an expired Harmony Folding Booster in my basement that I need to destroy. Not just for the folding capabilities, but for how narrow it is, I really want to replace it with another one just like it. It's...

    Convertible Car Seat for 2-Door Honda Civic?

    I can't promise it will fit well, but if budget truly is VERY flexible, you might see if anyplace in your area carries the Cybex Sirona S that you could check for fit. If it fits, the rotating feature might be really useful for you in your 2 door vehicle. Check Buy Buy Baby if you have one, or a...

    Vehicle/seat recommendations

    I agree that for 6 children you really want something that has at least 4 rows and can accommodate more than 8. You never know when that 6th kid turns out to be twins or something. NV Passenger, Ford Transit, or a small used preschool bus (which I've seen recently for a large family and worked...

    It looks like 2016-2017 Ford Transit Passenger vans are available in your general price range. I think I'd start my search there.

    Vehicle/seat recommendations

    Since she is rear facing her 38 lb. 3 year old, I think it's safe to say yes, she's probably familiar with the benefits of extended rear facing. Let me poke around and see what kinds of cars I can find in that price range. :)

    Vehicle/seat recommendations

    What is your budget for a vehicle? Comfortably fitting six car-seat aged children in any one vehicle is a tall order, but it can be done. It would help to know what your "ceiling" is. The new Kia Telluride and its cousin the Hyundai Palisade look very promising for large families, but as these...

    Car seat in classic car

    Without seeing the car, it's hard to be sure. Most lap/shoulder seat belts are fine with boosters, and they don't have to be equipped with a pre-crash locking mechanism. But the belts DO need to be able to lock on impact in a crash, and if the classic car was retrofitted with aftermarket...

    Truck safety for carseat

    The situation really depends. How old is the truck? Does it have air bags? Does it have top tethers? Is the seat rear or forward facing? Does the air bag turn off with a key or switch? What does the truck manual say? There isn't a one-size fits all answer to this question. Some situations may...
