Parkway belt guide required?


New member
Does anyone know off the top of their head if the belt guide on the Parkway is required to be used? I'll call Britax in the morning, but if anyone can save me a call that would be great.

I am working on three across a GMC Envoy with a Radian, a Parkway, and a Chicco infant seat. I would prefer to put the Parkway in the middle so I can use latch for the Radian, but the GMC has a funky shoulderbelt in the middle that lies flat on the seat, and doesn't want to go sideways through the Parkway's belt guide. The fit is fine without the belt guide, and I didn't see anything in the manual, but I wanted confirmation.

Yep, you are correct, both the Parkway and Star Riser shoulder belt guides are required.

Back to the drawing board, I'll start a new thread about that center seating position.

I have an Envoy XL (same but with a 3rd row) and 2 of the seats you are working with. In my second row I can put a Radian on the drivers side (installed via LATCH), a safeseat w/base in the middle, and a Parkway out board passenger side.

My baby is 19 mo and I have no problem removing the carrier from the center, or securing her in the harness. I find it is easier to reach over the Parkaway to get it her or the carrier in and out.I have tried reaching over the Radian and I find it easier to get to from the passenger side. Infact I put a Regent in the Parkway's place yesterday, still easy in and out. Hope that helps!:)

Have you tried the Radian in the center with the belt yet? Unfortunately the vehicle is grandma's, so lifting the baby into the middle is a no go :( And I have an ape armed 4 year old who likes to figure out how things work....I'm afraid even harnessed in so tight she turns colors she'll still be able to reach the baby's feet, hands, etc. :(

Check the other post for details :)
