    Crash Test RF vs FF

    If you are considering turning your child FF before they reach the weight limit for RF please watch this video!
    This video makes me cringe! I am turning my DD's seat back to RF tomorrow! I almost regret ordering a Frontier for our other car.
    This is something all moms should see.

    I have seen those vids too. The difference in the head and neck movement is significant.

    I am lucky to live in Scandinavia where large RF seats are commonplace. The crashstested RF seat in those vids is one of those seats. It is called Britax Two-Way Elite (Norway, Finland and Denmark) and Two Way Plus in Sweden.

    Just for fun:
    Here is the user guide. It is in Swedish but is loaded with pictures.
