    Tether extender?

    I am looking for a top tether extender. Does such a thing exist? I am thinking of a short webbing strap with a tether hook on one end and a D ring on the other. The captains chairs in my van have horrible tether anchors. Every time I install or remove a seat I need to flip the vehicle seat...

    Dora child seat

    I'm glad to see designs that will make kids want to use a car seat but Dora is kind of creeping me out. It might be the angle of the photo but it looks like she is standing in the seat, with very short legs, extremely long arms, and her head in a vise...

    Am I going crazy?

    well of course I am, but really... Walmart previously had the new Evenflo infant seat available on their website. I think. I was so sure that I saw it there before. Now I went to grab the link for someone and all that I can find is the old model which should have been removed from inventory...

    Holy cheap Nautilus, batman!

    I was just in the parking lot at our local mall, near Zellers. I noticed a couple beside me loading a Nautilus box in to the back seat of their truck. They looked to me like they would be young grandparents so I said hi and gave them my card in case they need install help. The lady was instantly...

    Local newspaper story

    I had no idea which direction she was taking the story, so I can't really say if my expectations were met or not. She mentions the benefits of rear-facing and that parents shouldn't rush moving to the next stage. :thumbsup: I don't see any huge errors after a quick read so I guess that is all I...

    Winter coat testing pictures

    I hadn't done a winter coat test in a while, so I thought I would put a mannequin to good use and snap a few shots while the kiddo is sleeping. Let me know if I've missed anything that should be added to the...

    I need travel help and ideas

    We are taking the boys to Disneyland in a couple weeks and I need to sort out what to do as far as seats go. James is easy, we will just bring the Apramo or Harmony and if he doesn't fit a belt we'll use it. Lightweight and easy. Now, what to do for Nick? He is 4 and about 35 pounds. We have a...

    Old Snugride and newer Snugride...

    Square peg in a round hole? ;) Does anyone know if 2008 and 2006 model snugride seats would be compatible as far as swapping bases? They are different model numbers but don't indicate 32 or 35, just the basic snugride for both. I'll call graco in the morning but thought I would check here...

    Drastic change in belt fit

    James has been using the SK Monterey for about a year and a half now. The belt fit has always been good but since he came back from his 2 week holiday I have noticed that the lap belt seems too high on his abdomen; it isn't sitting down on his hips like it used to. He is my first child in a...

    Built-in harness seats

    I have been asked about built-in seats and how safe they are in comparison to the seats that we can go out and buy. I really know nothing about these so I would like to hear what you know. The vehicle in question this time is a 2006 Chevy Venture (In Canada, eh) and the child is 5 years old and...

    Complete Air Centre UAS/LATCH rules?

    If the vehicle manual says to defer to the car seat manual for centre UAS usage, can the Complete Air be used with UAS? The UAS anchors are 400mm apart. I am trying to help someone out via the internet and her infant seat states a distance amount that is allowed, but the CA manual does not say...

    Infant seat for 2010 Ford Escape?

    A friend (fellow tech) just came by with a friend of hers to help wrangle a car seat in to a 2010 Escape. The seat was a Cosco, part of a travel system and is not overly compatible with her vehicle plus the seat would not lock in to the base. She is going to return the system but is now in need...
