    Re: Brace a Radian?

    You mean just have the seat touching the radian?
    My Radian is in the center and the top of the seat kind of sits between the 2 front seats, and it's ok. The center is the only place where my radian can fit RFing in my car.

    Re: Brace a Radian?

    I haven't heard or read anything from Sunshine Kids to indicate that you can't brace the Radian. Your vehicle also has to allow it, too, though. Some vehicles with advanced front airbags have a warning in the owner's manual stating not to allow a child restraint to touch the front seatbacks, because doing so can interfere with the airbag sensors. Any warning against touching/bracing would likely be in the airbag and/or child restraint section of the car's owner's manual.

    Ah, thanks! I'll check the manual for my car. Too bad my rental car right now doesn't have a manual.
