    Booster headrest very near to SRS stamp Odyssey

    Hi, I'm doing the carseat shuffle with three kids in our 2017 Odyssey and have put my small almost-8yr old in his Monterey XL, in the back row, driver's side. He's only 49" tall (don't recall seated height) so his headrest isn't very high. I noticed that the top outside edge of the booster...

    Tallest harness height seat (or one coming soon)?

    Hi all, well my preemie 3lb-er is finally a big boy and I need some help. He's 5 yrs old, 48 lbs an 46" tall, and growing insanely fast. He is FF in an evenflo sureride and is moving to the highest harness slot today. Which will likely do him about a year-ish, give or take (he's gone from size 5...

    Odyssey seatbelt jamming on Frontier clicktight beltpath plastic

    I have two Frontier CTs in my 2017 Odyssey. They're new (accident replacements 6 mo ago). I had one in the middle, third row seat (alone back there), and the other in the driver side 2nd row. I noticed that the seatbelt buckle is getting caught on the plastic edge of the beltpath on the back...

    Post-collision replacement criteria?

    Hi, we were stopped in traffic today when we were rear ended by an SUV (a guy staring at his cell on his lap - so he didn't brake at all before impact) and pushed into the car in front of us. Our Odyssey has some damage to the front driver side, but the back bumper is split in several places...

    Help! 4 year old loosening his harness

    Hi, so my middle child is 4, 41lbs and 42", in a Britax Frontier CT. He's also a hard-headed, pain in the....carseat, who, once he finds a button, will not stop pressing it. We were doing 70km/h two days ago, when he proudly said "look! my carseat!" He'd loosened it to the point where his arms...

    Deepest HBB with narrow footprint?

    Hi, my 7 year old daughter is 55lb, 53" and is all arms and legs. She's harnessed in a Frontier, but it's time to move her to a booster. She could probably last a bit longer in the harness, but the straps are cutting into her neck on either side, she's also still not able to buckle/unbuckle the...

    New convertible for wide-shouldered baby

    Hi, my youngest is 6 months (16lbs, don't know how long, but in 6 month clothes). He's a preemie, born at 31 weeks, so although a nice size and with fairly good head control, he's nowhere near sitting up (not even rolling over yet). He's in a chicco keyfit 30, slightly above second harness...

    Ford Five Hundred with Radian RF?

    Hi, I recently posted, looking for advice on Ford Freestyle seating, but ended up buying a 2005 Ford Five Hundred. I have my almost-4yr old daughter FF in the center in her Frontier CT and my new son (6mos, 21lbs, 27") in her old Diplomat RF outboard driver's side. Both seatbelt installed...

    Question Ford Freestyle and Frontier CT

    Has anyone installed a Frontier in the center of the middle row bench seat in a Freestyle or Taurus X? We've just turned our almost-4 yr old daughter FF, so I'd like her in the middle. We also have a newly adopted son (5 months, enormous - wearing 12 month clothing, don't have his stats) who is...

    Nissan Versa LATCH/UAS limit?

    Hi, I have a 2008 Nissan Versa hatchback with Radian XT rearfacing outboard with AA on the passenger side. My daughter is 3 yrs old, 39" and around 37-38lbs.

    Question Radian XT RF center Nissan Versa Hatchback?

    We're selling our minivan and are moving our Radian back into our 2008 Versa hatchback. I can get a super solid install RF with AA and UAS/LATCH outboard, with lots of room for driver/passenger.

    I have a tall, skinny 2 year old (38", 28lbs, torso height 13.5") who's been using a SK Radian RF for about 6 months now. When we first bought it for travel a year ago, I noticed that the crotch buckle tips marked her abdomen...but she didn't have any complaints and used it rarely (I posted...

    Diono - amazing customer service

    Had a recent awesome experience with Diono. Bought a Radian XT two months ago for a trip we were taking. Took the trip at the end of Oct - installed FF fantastically in the plane. Installed well with UAS RF in center of rental 2011 Impala. When we uninstalled (at 4am in the morning) at the...
