    Radian seatcovers make me hate the entire seat

    My son, who rides in the Radians, has developed a tendency for car sickness. BOTH seats have had those snaps on the inner side hip area break on the first attempt to ever remove the cover, and we were not wrangling the cover off but being careful. Those stupid plastic pegs on the outside hip region are stupid, too. After wrestling with them for wayyyyy too long this morning, I too some mini scissors and actually made little snips in the cover so I could slip the cover over those stupid little buttons.

    That seat cost way too much to be such a pain in the rear, and overall I like the seat for all the other reasons.

    The metal end of the safe guard thing is what I used to remove the plastic pegs. Made a perfect tool.

    I don't know if mine were just extra tight or what, but I used a butter knife, a screwdriver, a bottle opener, and a few other things trying to pry off the pegs, and they wouldn't budge.

    My diono doesn't have those hip peg snaps that my sunshine kids one has, the cover is easy to remove.

    Mine either... It is super simple to remove. If I didn't have to carry it up a flight of stairs I'd probably wash it way more often.

    I threw out the pegs years ago.

    Diono seats don't have them at all. Really easy cover to work with now.
