    Australian Britax seat and vehicle support?

    'do not use if the top of the restraint is higher than the top of the cars seat or headrest'

    This is what is printed on the side of the seat. So, this large Britax convertible is requiring the seat back behind it, right? And no tips of ears rule? The child restraint must not go above the vehicle headrest, right?

    That's what it sounds like to me.

    Sorry, I found the manual online and yep, they can't use it. Crazy, huh? I told her to call Britax to confirm it.

    Here it is. It looks like a Frontier with a smooth-as-butter-Roundabout-style-harness-adjuster! Perfection!

    Hey, Britax, I want that adjuster on the Frontier. Pretty please.

    My Frontier adjuster *IS* smooth-as-butter. It's not the RA style, but it is a pure pleasure to use. I've taken to buckling my almost 7 yo, who has been buckling herself for a couple of years now, just to enjoy the smooth pull.
