    There's the measurements database, which also includes info about no-rethread harnesses and lockoffs. There's some info in the comments, but you may need to fill in the gaps. And measurements don't tell the whole story WRT fit, either.

    Re: Comparison of convertible seats

    I was thinking of something more easy to view at a glance.

    Unrelated, but the other day I was thinking we should start a page like car seat data used to have regarding fit of different seats in different vehicles since theirs is no longer available.

    There is a caraway data spreadsheet here.

    I wrote one a couple years ago on my blog, but there have been a ton of new seats since then.
