Question lightweight, easy install 5 pt booster?




I am trying to find a good fit for my mom's car. My mother needs an easy to install and remove booster/carseat for my large 4 year old daughter. (46 inches and 44#). She recently start forward facing and in our cars in a Britax clicktight which we love. This is too large for my mom's car.

-easy install.
-lighter weight
-safety (no highway driving)
-prefer 5pt harness over seatbelt

I look forward to recs from you guys!

Hi! What you are looking for is called a combination seat. It is a seat with a harness that is later converted to a booster.

What car does your mom have? The best intersection I know of easy install, lightweight and a good fit in most vehicles would be The Evenflo SecureKid, but vehicle can matter a lot. In what way is the frontier too large?

Also consider Harmony Defender. It's very tall but not a lot wider than the Radian it replaced, other than the cup holder. We looked at the SecureKid but didn't like it much.

I struggle with the seatbelt install but I don't think it's any different than any other seat in that regard. I just got "spoiled" with the LUAS for 6 years. Also the US version might allow LUAS to higher than the Canadian 46# limit mine has.

Good luck,

The install on the Defender is, in my experience, very similar to the Radian forward facing install, which is notoriously one of the more difficult. I would not call it easy.
