    2010 Dodge Ram Sport Top Tether

    Holy confusing!! We've never had to do 3 across in this vehicle before. But had to this weekend. For sure I needed 2 top tethers. I rear faced the third. Gotta said we had a ton of room to spare with the seats we had. Roomy! Anyways, can someone help explain the tethering situation to me? The...

    2010 Caravan top tethers

    any part numbers floating around out there to get a retrofit? Previous threads on this vehicle+year have confused me. One said that it was not possible to get a retrofit on this vehicle because it already has 3 and thats all that is required, and that retrofitting is "not allowed" and will void...

    Choosing an Infant seat

    If you had to choose one today, which would you pick and why? I am so out of the loop with infant seats. I usually end up doing installs on convertibles, so I don't see a lot of infant seats. Bonus points if you can also tell me if the seat you'd pick comes in a travel system or if a converter...

    TFP Refresher please

    What cover options are available in Canada?? Can the seat touch/brace the front seats (if the vehicle allows for either of course) and has anybody by chance installed one in a 2011 Dodge Ram Sport??

    MR or RN on westjet

    We have to take a last minute (as in I might get an hours notice, if I'm lucky) trip. I want to figure out now which seat I'm taking so that I don't have to figure that out during crunch time. Ideally I'll have DD rf'ing on the plane, because she doesn't know ff'ing exists and I'd like to keep...

    New Radian, Harness Replacement Pictures (lots)

    As promised I took pictures of me replacing the harness of my 2010 XT (xt-sl for you americans). How all my parts came. I did not order a crotch strap, that was about the only piece of my seat that did not get puked on. That foam piece is in the pic because in a previous thread a user had been...

    headrest clarification

    Is it only boosters that sometimes require headrests (dorel seats for sure i think?), and not ever harnesses? or is there some harnessed seats that require the vehicle to have a headrest as well? what about 3 in 1's or ff'ing combos? can you use a combo in harness mode without a headrest? The...

    Multi Tech vs Hi-way

    Im looking into purchasing one of these seats. While looking online I noticed the MT says it starts at 20lbs rf'ing. Now would that be somewhat like our seats where sure they say a 5lb infant fits but they really dont? Or does 20lbs mean 20lbs? DD is 22lbs, about 33-34 inches tall, no clue...

    Im just wondering if there are any bad reviews on this seat? Especially people feeling its not a good seat for a small baby. I have somebody on another site saying her small infants head is/was dangling in the seat, to which I said the install is/was too upright. She says she had it checked...

    twisting male/female ends

    Can somebody explain to me why this is safe? I know that the belt cannot be twisted in the actual seat path, but why is it ok to twist it at all? In my head the dynamics of it would put more strain on the belt in the event of a crash, but obviously thats not the case and I cant find anywhere...

    My car (2008 G6) allows for borrowing, the LUAS is set up like A BC DE F E-F being behind the driver. it says i can use E and C for a middle installation point. however, when you do this the latch directly interferes with the drivers side rear seat belt buckle (so point E...

    Where would one go to get some up to date car seat safety pamphlets? in Canada I've seen a few people online now say they give out pamphlets instead of notes, and I like that idea. But have no idea where to go about getting some. As well as possibly handing them out to the doctors offices...
