    Re: He likes his seat

    How does it fit next to the Radian?

    I'm wanting to get a Radian for Joshua, in hopes that it will fit right beside the Marathon and they'll puzzle perfectly together...so I can't wait to hear about it and see the pics!

    Re: He likes his seat

    It is very tight. the radian is in the middle and the BV and MA are outboard. It really is tight but i like it alot. I will take photos tomorrow. And i think i have to change the MA i think. It is a little more reclined than i like but it is not that bad. It is less than 45

    Would the radian be RF for you Sam. I am not sure how well that would work. And i need to take them both out and see if they fit FF as well. If they do not fit FF than i don't see the point in keeping them because they will not be RF forever. But i do really like it

    it might be too tight FF. But you might be able to get it to work. Definitely try it ASAP so you arent suprised down the road.

    Re: He likes his seat

    I am going to try it tomorrow. I might go out now though because there is a lot i have to do tomorrow.

    Edit:Well i turned the BV around. I want to weigh Manuel again before i put him RF. I don't think he is 33 pounds yet but i just want to make sure. I am going over to see them tomorrow. The BV fits better FF than RF because it fits right next to the radian like the base is up high enough that it just fits nicely. I had to take the headrest off because it pushed the seat forward. I will mess with the MA tomorrow when i get home and take photos many different ways. The seats don't match that much but it is not too bad. One black the other 2 brown/tan. I really am happy with the seats.

    Re: He likes his seat

    But night is colder.. But most of my seats i have put in at night. Or early morning before work. I love playing with the seats but i hate that it hurts my hands. But than i know that i have really gotten them in. O quick thing just to make sure i am not wrong. I have the locking seatbelts. I can use that and not the locking things on the seats if i want right? That is what i did. It is how i know to put seats in and i want to have daylight to try something new. the locking things are not a need to havee right just something nice?

    Re: He likes his seat

    correct, you do not need the lockoffs when you use your locking seatbelt.

    I forget that in places it is cold at night Down here it hardly is, so Im free to play with them without becoming a popsicle.

    Re: He likes his seat

    There is still snow on the ground. It is right now around 20 i guess. But it is a cold 20 so it gets to your bones. I at times am glad i dont have children because i can just mess with my seats whenever i am not at work or school. But that is very offen so that does not always work eather. And thanks for the answer.. that is what i thought but i always like to ask because i rather be corrected when wrong than wrong and never know it.

    Both seats would be rear-facing for me. I'm glad you like your seats and they're working well for you!

    Re: He likes his seat

    I dont really like the RF radian but other people don't mind it. I will say they do fit next to each other if that helps you. But i did not try the radian RF. Maybe that will be my next trail
