So it's there, I just haven't found it yet.

This is like a game of where's waldo but I don't know what Waldo looks like! lol
If you look closely on the fromt there is a track with a pinhole(zooming it looks more like a screw) in the center. The track is smaller on the pioneer.

Is it just me, or does it look like the seat belt doesn't lay flush against the shell of the car seat? I'm pretty sure having a seat belt not laying flush would drive me and my kids nuts with it pushing into their back....

I was wondering the same thing as that's one of the reasons I didn't like the Prosport. Looks very similar.

It doesn't exactly lie flush, but it doesn't poke them in the back, either, at least in my limited experience. The cover pads it nicely.

I agree. That's my only issue with the ProSport!

So, the Pioneer has the part that opens like the click tight, but the belt doesn't go into that, it lies on the top instead? It just seems a bit strange to me.

DD (5.5 yo, 40 #, 44") in the center back of an '05 Silverado crew cab (will move outboard, passenger side soon):

She is even wiyh the third click from the top, so this is second from the top. The slots dont exactly match up/are a bit higher than the openings in the cover.

Growing room:


ETA: It seems reclined enough without using the carseat's recline feature, but I won't know for sure until DD falls asleep. Also, it seems cushy, but I guess DD will be the judge of that when we finally get around to driving somewhere. I am betting the big, poofy harness pads come off in the first five minutes, though.

The install wasn't terrible, but, if I'm being honest, was a bit confusing. The belt path wasn't intuitive to me, which was complicated by the unused (Click Tight leftover) flap. I think I got it figured out, but I'll probably post some pics in installation after the kids' bedtime.

One final thought: This is our first seat with an adjustable headrest. I dont know why, but I was taken aback by how loose it is. I was afraid I was going break it. I guess I'm just used to the beastly, solid TF, Radian, etc. ;)

ETA: We definitely ended up needing it in recline in that center position. Head slump city... :(

I moved the P70 outboard, and I like it a lot more there. It is so much more reclined that I didn't put the recline foot out. The seatbelt wasn't completely flat in the belt path, and the convenience loop is right in the middle of DD's back. We are going to test the Britax padding!
