    Buckle bopper thingy for chest clip?

    Does something like this exist? My mom has the worst time with them. She likes the chest clip on the radian, which won't work ff where we want it. Or are there any other convertible or combination seats with the Diono-style chest clip?

    Re: Buckle bopper thingy for chest clip?

    Is it the type with a button on the front she's struggling with? The Dionos have the side-release style from what I see. Britax, Graco and Chicco appear to use a side-release style. It looks like Evenflo and Dorel (Cosco, Safety 1st, Maxi-Cosi) generally use the button style. The exceptions are some Maxi-Cosi seats with the magnetic chest clip.

    She can't do the kind with the button front, but she also has trouble with the side releases that have plastic behind the part you press because it forces her to use the tips of her fingers. On the Diono she can wrap her hand all the way around and use the part of her finger closer to her palm to push the release.

    Britax and I’m pretty sure Chicco have the kind you are looking for. Graco may be the one with the part that blocks her from using that technique. Target carries both Britax and Chicco, so that might be a good place to see the chest clips in person.
