    Tether Anchor Placement: Distance from Seat?

    It's common in trucks since straight down is kinda all there is. This was deemed acceptable by both manufacturers for using our 86Y in a F250 about 6 yrs ago. Sent from my iPhone using Car-Seat.Org ~ please disregard typos!

    Question Stroller comparison help

    It appears that both the Kolcraft Universal 2 & Baby Trend Snap-n-Go fit the Chicco Keyfit? The Kolcraft seems to be rated slightly higher, but costs a bit less so I'm leaning that way. Is there any big reason I might prefer the Snap-n-Go instead? :confused: We will most likely carry baby for...
