    Does anyone know the top slots measurement on these?

    I am going to be transporting 3 kids this fall to/from Preschool. I'm going to need some decent/cheap seats for these kids. They will all be FFing.

    Do these have at least 16" top slots???

    TIA

    If that's a Cosco, no. Barely 15, if that. Evenflo Chase and Graco Cargo are ~17 inches, though.

    It looks like a Cosco. Pretty low slots. Chase or Cargo would be a much better, longer lasting option for you to try.

    No front harness adjuster, either, from looking at the pic.

    It does have a front adjust, the strap on that one just isn't sticking out. I have one of these that I bought at cost just so I could give it to someone who is desperately in need of a car seat. Not a bad seat but definitely the lowest top slots I've seen in a combo... I measured 14".

    That would be the Cosco HighBack Booster(that's really the name). It has beyond low harness slots. It can't be used for under one year olds(duh), but by the time a child can use it, they are usually way over the bottom slot. Umm, hello? What were they thinking? Anyway, it does have a front harness adjuster and it does install in pretty much anything.

    I was afraid it would have a low harness....shoot! Ok...back to square one. Guess I'd better find something else.

    The Evenflo Chase is in the same price range (about $60) and does have decent top slots.

    Re: Does anyone know the top slots measurement on these?

    I think I'm going to use the 2 triumph advances and 1 radian we have...it will just mean that the boys can't ride with daddy too often b/c we'll have to play musical seats.

    I'm going to do ff ta/ff radian/ff ta. That's the only way they'll fit in the middle row of my van. And ds1 and ds2 will have to be in the very back.

    So this means that ds2 will have to have another seat! It works out perfectly...I've been itching to get him a new one!
