    What is this review talking about?

    # You can use LATCH, tether or SuperLock to install it.

    That's from http://celebritybabies.typepad.com/r...ne-kids-r.html

    The review was pretty good, IMO, though the "it's so easy to install" is worrisome.

    Your guess is as good a mine. I think maybe she was thinking about the safety stop feature and does not know what it really is.

    Okay, puke - some things just do not need to be shared.

    Apparently, the SuperLock is a locking clip by Radian???, um, that's not an installation method, as well as the tether is not an installation method.

    I guess she does not know the difference between a safety feature and a method of installing.

    Okay, what is the deal with the third comment? When I went on I only saw 2 comments. I left one, which would make me the third.

    It was rather vulgar, including a XXX reason as to why her child's carseat cover would need to be cleaned.

    Re: What is this review talking about?

    It's possible they installed it in a car like my Golf, though. If I'd only ever installed the Radian in my Golf, I'd be gushing about how easy it was, too. It fits like it was custom-made for that car!

    Re: What is this review talking about?

    Precisly why I didn't come right out and say that she had it installed incorrectly. Just said it was known for being a booger to install and to have it checked. And clarified that the tether and superlock are not means of installation.
