    When is the Recaro Como shipping?

    I thought it was the first week of August?

    Re: When is the Recaro Como shipping?

    Good question!

    I know the date was moved from July to the first week of August. Has it been pushed back again?

    I haven't gotten a ship date yet, BUT they could have shipped to Retailers on Friday. So, that means we may be receiving them this week.

    I believe we will start shipping some Como seats by the end of this week.

    I've heard that the top slots are 19 inches and yes, I believe it can be tethered rear facing. Can't wait to see one.

    Re: When is the Recaro Como shipping?

    since we are a retailer store i was able to find out some information, Como Signo
    Seat Height 28" 28"-29"
    Interior Seat Back Height 25.5" 25.5"-26.5"
    interior Seat width 15" 15"
    Max child Height 59" 60"

    these are the seat dimensions, and "Neither seat is able to teather when rear facing. " which for my rear facing in any impact having it tethered seems the safest, why less head excusion, i like the seat as a ff seat, but not sure if its better then a marathon or boulevard rear facing, does anyone know about crash dynamics to give me input on how important the tether is rear facing?

    Re: When is the Recaro Como shipping?

    Hmmm, most posters who have checked directly with Recaro or vendors who offer Recaro pre-orders were told the new convertibles can be top tethered rear facing.

    Here's a great explanation of rear facing tethering from the Safety Belt Safe USA technical encyclopedia (worth bookmarking ): http://www.carseat.org/Technical/tec...tm#toptetherRF

    This is incorrect. You CAN tether while rear-facing, but it will not be coming with a D-ring extender strap like the Britax's have.

    The Como's will be shipping on Friday.

    If it doesn't have a D-ring, how would you tether it RF?

    they may expect you to thread the connector around a seat leg and then back onto itself (i.e, tether the connector right to the strap). or they expect you to have some sort of anchor or hook to use. i do think that without a d-ring that it will make it a lot less feasible in some cars.

    Re: When is the Recaro Como shipping?

    I am so excited I can't wait to get one.
    I just want to hear about some good, easy installs, I want to read the manual online, and then all I need to do is wait for my little boy to get closer to the limits on his SS1 and I'm good to go!

    I think a lot of the online dealers are getting them sooner the the brick and mortar stores.
