I was just reading the Pilot Review (awesome btw... Carrie_R) and I see in there

(hope you don't mind I used your picture)

Totally stupid question: What is the red strap in middle used for... I have never seen this before (obviously don't own a Radian) and I always wondered what that hole in the middle was for when I look at pics of Radians online and have been meaning to ask or try to figure it out myself lol!

The red strap is for holding the seat closed when it is folded up for storage. Most people tuck it down through the slot in the cover when the seat is actually in use so you don't see it.

When the radian is folded the red strap holds it together in the folded position

You can also use it as a handle for hauling the Radian, that's one of the allowed carrying points designated in the manual.
