    Where can I find te expiration date?

    On a Britax Marathon? The last post got me thinking about it. I ordered mine off Ebay and now I want to make sure I didnt get an older seat. Thanks!

    You have to find the manufacture date, and then it expires 6 years after that. It's on a sticker on the outside of the seat shell under the elastic of the cover up about where your kiddo's head goes (I forget which side, try left and right, lol)

    On my Marathon and Decathlon, it's on a white sticker on the left side where the head goes. You shouldn't have to lift up the cover or anything...I don't anyway!

    Maybe they got sick of wasting their customer service reps time answering that ridiculous question and moved the sticker so people could FIND it? Cuz on slightly older models, ya really gotta dig for it (mine was under the cover next to the harness adjuster strap... I mean, duh, not a good place... :P)

    ROFL!

    Mine is the same as this. I was surprised that it was so easy to find! My DOM is June 2006
