    Re: MR cover slipping off?

    Oh ya, when I took my MR out of the box the cover was already off and it won't go back on. The elastic acts like its 6 years old already. Graco definitely dropped the ball with the covers! But so far, the cover is my only complaint and I can live with it.

    are you allowed to add sticky velcro dots to try to keep a seat cover in place??

    Thank you for the responses, however, I already decided against the MR. My little guy, isn't really so little and I think I need the TF. Thanks again!

    I used them on my Flex Loc seats. The foot of the covers never stayed on & the velcro dots don't effect the use of the seats.
