    Which seat is easier to install?

    My husband uses his car for hauling things for his job, so he takes the car seat in and out often (and sometimes forgets to put them back in, so he has to walk home from daycare with our son -- even though it's "only" 2 blocks!). Which seat is easier to install and remove -- the Truefit or the My ride? We will be using it RF for now but obviously will switch to FF at some point...

    Re: Which seat is easier to install?

    Depends on your vehicle, but I would say the MyRide is easier in most vehicles. Can you go try out the installs before you purchase either? Most Babies R Us stores will let you.

    Re: Which seat is easier to install?

    He's getting a company car in Feb or March and we don't know what he's getting. However, we need a new car sear now.

    I can't decide between these 2 seats so I thought that this might be the tipping point. DS is short and light for his age, so it's not a tall and thin vs. short and thick sort of thing. I might just buy whichever one is more affordable since they both seem so highly regarded!

    I can't speak for the TF, but we have a MR in my MIL's Hyundai Santa Fe which I installed (LATCH passenger outboard), and it was a very easy install.
