    I have a dear friend who is completely car seat illiterate! I did get her to buy her ds a MA. I installed it for her (ff), and showed her how to do it. Initally I installed it in the center of her Explorer, but she ended up moving it to the passenger side because she could get her son into the center (she was very pregnant). So I reinstalled it for her and showed her how to get it in correctly. She mentioned moving it the other day, and I thought Uh Oh...wonder how it's installed. So today I stopped by and sure enough, it was installed sooo bad. I'm not even sure how/why she thought it went this way! First thing I noticed was the seat was not in tight. Second, the seat belt was twisted. So I reached over, and unbuckled. Then undid the lock off. But the seat belt wouldn't come out. I finally figured out why...somehow she managed to route it through BOTH lock offs!!!!! So I undid the seat, and reinstalled it.

    I really do not understand why people can not get their seats installed at least half way correct! It's not complicated. Oh well, at least for the time being, his seat is in right...till she takes it out again.
