    Cosco Easy Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat

    Has anyone seen this car seat? I think it's sold at Walmart. I'd be interested in stats- specifically top harness height and seat width. Thanks

    I had one come in to a check event. I can't give you stats but can say it was very easy to install properly in the car it came in with.

    Re: Cosco Easy Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat

    I found the following review:
    http://csftl.org/cosco-easy-elite-multimode-review/
    It looks like it's pretty narrow (18") and might be good for 3 across situations.
    The top harness heights are only 16.75". At around what age would a child usually outgrow that?
    I was originally looking at a grcao tranzitions for a narrow car seat, but this is much cheaper. Any thoughts?

    Cosco Easy Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat

    This review might be helpful: http://csftl.org/cosco-easy-elite-multimode-review/

    It lists the highest harness height as 16.75" and the width as 18".

    A Tranzitions would probably get you about an extra year to 18 months in a harness (by shoulder height, potentially more for heavier kids who outgrow the Cosco harness by weight first) and about the same timeframe (an extra year-ish) in high back booster mode. The Tranzitions also can be used as a backless booster.

    The Tranzitions also comes with harness pads, which is of variable importance to parents and kids.

    You might also look at the Harmony Defender. It's about $10 cheaper than the Tranzitions right now.

    Looks like we both were on the same track! Your post hadn't cleared moderation yet when I wrote mine so I didn't see that you'd found that article already.

    Just to make sure, what is the age, height, and weight of the child? The Graco Tranzitions does not rear-face and the Easy Elite does not become a backless booster, so they serve different purposes in that regard.

    As far as the 16.75" harness height, I think it is about the same as the non-ClickTight Britax convertibles, and I think I have read on here that those are usually outgrown around age 5-6.

    You might also want to look at the Evenflo Maestro. It also harnesses to 50 pounds and can be used as a high back booster. It doesn't rear face (similar to the Tranzitions) but has 18" top slots and is a recommended seat. It's less expensive than the Easy Elite.
