    Looking for new Safeguard Child Seat (not the Go)

    I know this seat was discontinued in 2008. My local shop has a tan one NIB for $279 and a grey floor sample. I really would like 2 matching seats for our boys and/or a crimson seat, but I was surprised to even find these two.

    So questions:
    Do you know anyone who has them in old stock?
    Would you buy a floor sample for a car seat? Presumably it has been tossed around a bit. What things should I check if I want it?

    They were made in 2008, so would expire 2015 when my older boy is 7 and younger one is 5. I am okay with that.

    TIA!!

    Although sometimes verrrrrrrry tempting, I do not buy floor models. Ever. You just never know what's been done to them over their time on the floor and damage/stress is rarely visible.

    There are certainly stores out there, specialty stores, who school their employees on proper handling and being available to customers. I know some people feel comfortable buying floor models from such places, but I can never be sure, so I...just don't.
