    Radian Carry Straps?

    Does anyone know where to find them? When I google them I come with lots of Radians. Elite Car Seats has them backordered. I think I want two so that I can wear it like a backpack if I want to. Thanks!

    Re: Radian Carry Straps?

    What I want to know is, are these glorified luggage straps? I have straps from defunct duffle bags hanging around, I'd use them instead of buying a set, if they'll work.

    Target has them ans Sunshine Kids has them.

    I'd also love to know if luggage straps will work. I have a bunch of them.

    Playing both ends toward the middle here,

    A. I imagine luggage straps would work just fine if they are pretty well padded.

    B. I would still buy the SK ones. If they break, and your very expensive car seat goes splat, you can probably get SK to replace it if you are using their straps, but propbably not if you are using any old randon straps.

    I can't find them on either website. I only find the carry bag.
    Anyone better at finding things online than me? I'll try the other link, but I've never heard of them so I'm a bit hesitant.

    How strange...I thought this (http://sunshinekidsbaby.comfortfirst...ccessories.asp) was the skjp website but the strap isn't on their website although tons of other sk accessories are.
    It is on the skjp website.
    Thanks!

    Re: Radian Carry Straps?

    I wanted to get one too, but for the life of me I can't figure out where it would hook to. Am I missing something?! I have one of the first Radians made so maybe you couldn't use straps then?

    Re: Radian Carry Straps?

    Does your Radian have two small black fabric loops (similar to harness fabric) on the outside of the shell? That's where the carry strap would clip on. I know there are loops on the same side as the DOM label on our Radian 65 (DOM 10/06), and there might be another set on the other side, too. I just can't take a look right now to see if the loops are on both sides.

    Nope, no loops so I guess it's something they added to the original design (I think our seat is 11/05). I guess that means I'm getting the carry bag, lol. I need to get on that if I want it before our trip!

    I used a luggage strap, off a defunct lap-top bag. It worked just fine... Though I didn't do much carrying of it..It is very heavy.. I carried it until I could throw it into the stroller or onto a luggage cart.
