    Car Seat Placememt

    Is there a website that I can type in my vehicle make and model and type of car seats to see where I can place them in my vehicle. I want to know if it’s safe to have them next to each other.

    Durango

    I have a 2017 Dodge Durango with a 60/40 bench seat in the middle. I have two graco slim fit car seats (one facing forward and one backwards). Is is safe to have them both on the bench seat next to each other on the 60% side?

    We can help. They can touch, but not overlap. We can also tell you how you can install them. Just please, let us know what seats you have, if they're rear or forward facing (if it's not obvious), what car you have, and how old everyone is?

    Re: Durango

    As long as they're installed independently of each other, and are not overlapping, they should be just fine.

    Re: Durango

    I merged your threads so you could get help all together.

    Is your forward facing SlimFit tethered? Did you install both with the seatbelt, or one with the lower anchors?
