    I think they sent me the same thing?

    From the advice you all I called Dorel and asked for a longer crotch belt for my Apex. They sent me a new one with the harness straps for free but it looks like the same size as the other one. I havnt taken the other one out yet but it is very short still. Do they not make a longer one?

    Re: I think they sent me the same thing?

    I thought the same thing when I took mine out of the package. I was what the... I took out the old strap and compared them and it was a little longer. I didn't have high hopes that it would help much, but it definately did. Might as well put it in and give it a chance!

    The radian difference is about .8 inch (what ever .8 of an inch is??).

    It does not look like much but there is a difference - They cannot make them too much longer because of the safety standards.

    Your best bet is to compare them off the seat, and if they are the same call them back.
