    Installing Britax Boulevard with 1 lock off or 2 for lap/shoulder belt?

    We just turned my daughter's seat around FFing and the instructions in the manual said to use the lock off closest to the buckle, so we did. It didn't say anything about the other one. Then I watched a few videos to make sure we did it right, and there were some videos that said to use both lock off's. Now I'm confused. Is either way ok? Or should I change it and use both lock off's with the lap/shoulder belt? Thanks!

    Is it a new Boulevard, or a classic one? The classic ones used the one further from the buckle and that was it. The new ones use the one closer to the buckle, and ideally that's it. Though Britax wouldn't get upset if both were used. But with the classics it's impossible to use both.

    How old and heavy is your daughter?

    Oops, forgot to mention it's the Boulevard 70. She is 39 lbs and will be 4 in April.
