    Graco Extend2Fit drool/freak outs/whatever

    I had forgotten about that! :ROTFLMAO: Regarding the recline angle and space it takes up RF in the vehicle - I just want to point out how flat those vehicle seats are in the picture. The Ext2Fit base looks like it's level with the ground which is pretty unusual. In general, the flatter the...

    More info on Chicco KidFit Booster (re: buckling when unoccupied)

    Just fyi - according to my contacts at Chicco, the recommendation to buckle the KidFit booster when unoccupied even when LATCHed in (in highback mode) has to do with the fact that the back will rotate forward in a crash since it's a separate piece. The back portion isn't going to break off and...

    Best convertible carseat for 2013 Ram pickup w/4 dr crew cab

    Here are pictures of a Classic Roundabout 50 in a friend's 2011 Ram quad cab. He has the smaller cab so the rear-facing carseat really needed to go in the center otherwise the front passenger seat was unusable for most adults. I used a noodle in this case to increase recline because it was for a...

    Britax marathon click tight harness strap problem

    Re: Britax marathon click tight strap I added this picture to our Blvd CT Review so people know where to look. Britax also has videos that show how it should be attached properly to the hip anchors in both longer and shorter harness setting. Keep in mind that the shorter harness setting is...

    Have we noticed this pattern?

    Houndstooth with regular grey harness straps. There will be a Heathered Gray fashion too. Both will be sold exclusively through specialty stores in the US. ETA - We asked about the colored webbing we saw displayed the previous year's show and we were told that they decided against it. Not sure...

    Evenflo Buckle Recall Being Announced Today

    Just a heads-up that the recall for Evenflo convertible and combination seats with the "QT" buckle is being announced today. These are the same buckles that Graco was forced to recall recently so we've been expecting this. The recall "fix" will be a different buckle that will automatically be...

    Gracos at BRU....Finally back!

    They are not using IMMI buckles. Only the Symphony (which had an IMMI buckle to begin with - before they switched to the QT buckle) is going back to having an IMMI buckle. The new Evenflo buckles are a style that you are probably familiar with because they have used it on a lot of different...

    Anyone else's kid find the incognito too hard?

    DS2 (9 yrs., 54" tall, 90 lbs.) is the perfect size for this product and he tested it extensively in the first few weeks that we had it. He said that even though it's firm that his "butt forgot about it after a few minutes". I laughed about that comment but I totally understand it too. When you...

    RF seat for 03 Dodge Ram quad cab

    We used to have an '04 Quad Cab and we now have a 2012 Ram Crew Cab so I have lots of experience with these vehicles. Your problem (besides lack of front-to-back space) in the quad cab is that the center position in the Rams isn't as deep as the outboard positions. For some unknown reason - the...

    Eddie Bauer leather edition car seats

    Welcome! :) You received some great info so far but I just wanted to add that you should double check the date that the seat was made because I'm pretty sure those EB leather seats were discontinued a long time ago. One of the sticker labels should list the date of manufacture - if it was made...
