Any hangups on a Triumph LX for occasional use RF in a '01 Ford Escape

This is Grammy's car. She transports two grand-daughters (11 and 13 mos respectively) only occasionally. I thought the Triumph Advance would be a good seat (esp. current Albee promo at $114) because you can adjust the harness height without an uninstall. Does it install well RF in an '01 escape, preferably driver-side outboard? I'll be doing the install, so I can deal with either LATCH or seat-belt and I've used locking clips for other seats so that doesn't scare me.

Thx. I didn't appreciate the short shell issue until I read other posts of outgrown triumphs. I have two marathon 70s in service and while not the tallest they're still accommodating my 3.5 year old well. Is the triumph even shorter? The knob thing might be an issue for Grammy tho. If ease of install is not the main priority, might you suggest another seat that has an easy harness height adjustment, preferably in a midrange price?
