crotch buckle


New member
I just got and radian xtsl a week or so ago and was wondering if anyone has problems unbucking the buckle? it seems to just bee the right side that doesnt want to come out and I have no problems with the left side. is this just how this carseat is or does mine need replaced? if so it would be under warranty right?

I would say it probably is defective and you should call Diono. And yes, it should be under warranty.

At worst, you can buy a new buckle for around $8. But I bet they'll send you a new one.

ok thanks I was playing with it a lil more and it seems to be very picky where I press to unbuckle it. sometimes it will come out right away and sometimes I have to try a couple times but I will call for a replacement.
