It's in the manual and printed on the back of the seat. This seat is a fantastic option for parents who want to ERF and Extended harness but are in a budget.

It is in the manual for the 4th slot to be used rfing. My almost 4yo would just fit rfing if he wasn't way over the weight limit. He wears a 5t and normally rides in a fr85.

I bought one tonight, I had some store credit at Target and got them to price match as well. I just had to say that this seat is INSANELY EASY to install!! I mean no joke, middle position, 3rd row of my grand caravan with the weird middle seat belt and it was rock solid in less than a minute.

I am punishing DD1 for not sitting nice in her booster :D She's going to be verrrry surprised when she gets to the car tomorrow morning hehe.

Thanks to you, this thread, and your pics, my SureRide is ready for in-store pickup at BRU!! My DS has very similar stats to yours, so seeing your RF pics totally sealed the deal! :love:

This will be our new travel/backup seat (replacing a Tribute), but will be used as our main seat for the next couple mos, til I can check out the NextFit & the 2013 Peg.

Do you like it??
I installed it Sunday morning, so it's only been in use for a day :)

The install--what a breeze! Very straightforward & easy to get a super tight install. Like a matter of minutes! FWIW this is RF in the middle seat of a 2006 VW Passat. A world of difference compared to trying to get a BLVD in the same location.

My DS is 3y4m, 38-39" and 34 lbs. He is on the last RFing-only slot. When I tried him in the house, I had hope he could go on the either/or slot. But when I got him in the car--no way. It is miles above his shoulders. It truly seems impossible that he will get to move up a slot while RFing. I do wish there was another slot, as the one he has to use is significantly below his shoulders.

I had a little trouble with the crotch buckle at first. It is different from what's on our Tribute. It seems you have to have the buckle "prongs" at a very exact angle for them to slide in.

DS seems to like it. It certainly seems more comfy/cushy than the Tribute, which he's been in for a few mos. I don't think he even remembers his (crashed) Britax now. DH was impressed, he said something along the lines of "wow, they're making these (cheap) seats a lot nicer now" lol :) I think b/c he is comparing it to the Tribute, which is pretty bare bones. We are both impressed with how light it is--that combined with the easy install will make it a perfect travel seat for many years to come!

Oh, I thought it might be somehow related to the way they have to to test seats in Canada--something I know nothing about.
I think I am going to be kind to DH and not make him take the Foonf with us when we fly in May. So glad to have found a good travel seat that can keep DS RF for a while.

It very well could be that they can't test it the way they did here to make the change. I was just pointing out ours changed here.
