    Can I unstall a RF seat in front of an armrest?

    Is it ok to install a RF seat in the center of a backseat with one of those folddown armrest things?
    thanks

    Yes. *unless* the vehicle manual says it's not ok (I'm not aware of any that don't allow it, but it's always good to check for sure).

    (this was an old rule that Evenflo had for their RF seats, it's not been a rule for 5 years now, but it lives on in our collective memory...so I'm glad you asked!).
