    Tech in Louisiana.. trouble with Radian.

    I need to find a tech in Louisiana. I am having major trouble getting the radian secure in my 2003 Odyssey. We can no longer use latch. Anyone want to give me pointers on getting the thing secure until I can get to a tech?

    What install troubles are you having? Is your Radian FFing or RFing? Age/weight of the child?

    I have it latched FF and it is a perfect install. I need to change it to a seat belt install and I can not get it tight... at all.

    In the 2011 Odyssey third row outboard the seatbelt did not give me a great install FF. Every trick in the book!

    Just sharing b/c some seating positions are just not meant to be.

    If you are ever in the New Orleans area, the state troopers have a check every Wednesday at the Kenner substation. I believe it's from 2-4. There are other CPSTs there as well, not just the trained officers. I had a CPST student check mine (he was from Kenner police), and there were 3 instructors who were observing him and all that jazz.
