    Cheapest back-up seat with built-in lock-offs?

    I'm looking for a back-up seat for the 1 year-old. But if I've learned anything about my preferences and putting car seats in my van it's that built-in lockoffs make installing rear-facing in the 3rd row loads easier. (plus my dad's SUV is older and has ELR only) What's the least expensive convertible that comes with built-in lockoffs?

    I'm pretty sure the cheapest option with lockoffs is the Roundabout.

    Or maybe a Truefit. I had both the Truefit and Roundabout and liked the TF better.

    Definitely the true fit. You can get them on sale for pretty cheap.
