    Radian install question

    Has anyone successfully installed a radian ff on the 3rd row bench of a 2005 montana (lap belt only) . I am considering purchasing one to make more room for the times I need 5 children in the van. To my understanding this seat performs well untethered?

    Also, It would be great if it would fit in the captain's chairs rf and ff too.
    THANKS

    I know there is a successful install thread..I am not very computer savy, but I wasn't able to come up with answers there

    Re: Radian install question

    I drive an 02 Chevy Venture which is very similar to your van. I got a great install ffing in the center of the third row. Tight to fit anything on the sides but a pw did fit - hard to buckle and I'm guessing a harmony backless would fit.

    It fit awesome on the modular seats in the middle row rfing outboard and center. I had my captain's chairs taken out so I didn't try them. I'm guessing they'd work with latch but not with a seatbelt because of how forward of the bight the buckles are - and they are ridgid and angled too (at least mine are)

    I find the older the car, the scarier the belt situation the better that the Radian does, lol. I have had no issues getting it installed FF with a lap belt only in any car I have tried.
