    Has anybody called to see how many Britax chest clips one person can order at a time?

    Seriously! That $8 shipping for one $3.00 chest clip is ridiculous! I didn't pay much more than that for shipping for new harness straps and a new cover! If anyones tries it, I'll buy a couple from you!

    by playing around with their website, it looks like you can order up to 8 chest clips with an $8.50 shipping charge. Any more than that and the shipping bumps up to $10

    So if 8 people order, and split the shipping 8 ways, it will be $4.06 per chest clip...then actual shipping from the orderer to each person (probably around $1 each)

    I would be in for at least 2, possibly 3

    Anyone want to organize this?
    I would, but I don't have my paypal account hooked up to my bank account (so I still have sending and receiving limits)

    Sooooo, I wonder how many you can get for $10 shipping?

    Wow, I just tried it. It went up to 25 before changing to $15!

    Think someone could sell that many for $5 each including shipping?

    Sure beats $11!

    Re: Has anybody called to see how many Britax chest clips one person can order at a time?

    I'm in for 2, and would be willing to be the buy through person, provided their shipping is fairly quick (we're moving in a month) and people are willing to prepay for their order to my paypal.

    If you can get up to 25 for $10 shipping, that's only $.40 shipping, each, plus actual cost to ship to the ultimate owners. Someone help me on this one. I'm guessing they should be able to ship for around $1.00 a piece? So, if we get 25 orders, the "purchase price" would be $3.50 (added .10 for processing ) plus like $1.00 shipping for 1, and like $.50 for each additional.

    Would they be okay to just wrap in some packing foam stuff and put in a regular or business envelope and mail that way? Or is there a better/but still cheap way to do it?

    Why don't we start an actual count of who wants how many? Cut and paste and add your numbers:

    Number of clips: user name: total count:

    2 rearfacingadvocate 2 (add your #)

    has anyone bothered to call IMMI or recaro to ask their prices and shipping charges? they use the identical clip as the britax.

    Good thought. They very well could be cheaper.

    I guess it would seem strange if you didn't know what we are talking about! The Radian started out with a Britax like chest clip and then changed to one that many of us don't like as well. Russ, a CS rep at Radian's company said it was OK to use a Britax clip (Actually he said "diff clip").

    I'm placing an order for chest clips today, but I already need 4, and with my upcoming move, I don't have time to wait and/or ship a whole bunch out.

    Sorry.

    Re: Has anybody called to see how many Britax chest clips one person can order at a time?

    Okay, I contacted REcaro's cust service and here's what they said:

    "I can’t guarantee that the chest clip is the same as the Britax chest clip. The clip itself would be $2.50 per clip plus shipping which would probably be about $25.0 - $5.00 depending on where it is going."

    So, no gaurentees they are the exact same. But it's a pre-crash conditioner anyway, right? They are cheaper, and I'm guessing she meant $.25-$5.00, or maybe $2.50. I did ask about a group order, but she didn't answer that. However, even if you went for just 2, it would likely be around $10 total, instead of $14 through Britax. Plus, I'd rather mine doesn't say "britax" on it.

    Also, it hit me last night, that we're actually moving in only 2 1/2 weeks (time got away), so I can't be the order through. We're moving to Alaska for three months, so I refuse to ship in and out of there.
