    Extend2Fit Install

    Ok, so I usually ise this seat with my 8.5 month old RFing but I'm transporting a 3.5 year old, 35 pound little girl tomorrow. I know she FF in her parents car so I'm installing it that way for her. I read since she is under 40 pounds I need to use recline 4. Does this look right? There is a really large gap between the back of the seat and the car seat. I took my vehicle head rest off which helped a little.

    Do you have the vehicle seat reclined as well? What vehicle is this?

    I called Graco with the same concern. They expressed that as long as the base was on the seat within the allowable area that it is ok.

    Thanks so much. That will be helpful once my DD is ready to FF but that will be a few years.

    I'm constantly swapping seats around depending on what kids I have and who needs to fit where and how etc. so I try to know what I can about my seats.
