Attaching a Radian to a Magna Cart

Does this look good to you? We'll be flying one way and taking Amtrak home in a few weeks. I need to be able to haul my Radian around easily.

It seems stable, and I was able to run my daughter in the seat up and down the driveway a few times without issues, and it is simpler than running a bungee through the belt path. But I don't want any funny surprises.

You only have it hooked on by the top tether? I wouldn't be comfortable with it like that since the bottom could slip off.

Yeah, I know it doesn't look like much, does it? But it is actually pretty darn stable. I tried to make it slip off and I couldn't. Probably because it's so heavy!

I'd just be concerned that mid-trip your having to rig some other way to make it stay. Very inconvenient time to be dealing with that if you can just run a bungee through and be done with it right now.

True. But with a bungee through the FF belt path I can't fold the seat up all the way.

I'm going to have to play with it some more to see what else I can come up with.

I used the latch belt and attached to the cart when I used it. But I didn't have superlatch, just the old awesome latch.

I have thought about running a "salvage" non-premium LATCH strap through the RF belt path to attach the bottom of the seat to the cart.

I bought a steel ring at the hardware store to use as a cheap alternative to the traveling toddler. I bet that would work in this application as well. Attach the SL anchors and the tether to it and go.

I did a bungee cord in the crevice where it folds and hooked the ends onto the bars of the cart. I also had one up under the headwings to stabilize the top but you seem to have that covered. That way you could still fold it up. I carted DS around airports and down aisles of planes strapped in and it worked awesome!
