    BabyTrend Hybrid

    Tech here, I have someone asking for help with their BT Hybrid, and I've never seen or played with one before. I've heard many horror stories about the install, and I've looked at the manual online, but it's American - meaning it references different belt paths for use with or without TT.
    Does anyone have experience with this seat up here in Canada?? The mom said it wasn't hard to install at all, so either I'm scared for nothing, or I'll be completely redoing and re-teaching the install of the seat. I've asked her to get her manual ready for me, but I'd kinda like to know what I'm getting into before I get there.

    I haven't installed it personally yet, but it does still have a complicated seat belt install in Canada is my understanding. If you have the US Manual the long belt path one is the one for Canada if I am remembering correctly.

    Yes. "Front entry" only in Canada. Bahaha.

    I'll admit, I giggled when I read the front vs rear entry bit in the manual.

    So there's just the one seatbelt installation method then here in Canada? The long winding belt path one?
