Mine is locking clip and belt shortening clip...

The momma can do what the baby can but baby can't momma can...

Does this make sense to you?

It makes sense, but I don't find it necessary, personally.

I haven't got any mnemonics or anything; I've never been big on them, personally (though I do still remember all the Central American countries' names in order north to south because of one we made up in sixth grade, lol. And Kings Play Cards on Fat Green Stools. And Please Excuse my Dumb-A** Sister. Ok, so I remember them, I just don't make them up...)

I have no idea what you're talking about, but if it works for you, awesome.

For me I have the four Ps when I'm doing a carseat check. Planes, pets, projectiles, puffy coats.

Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally...but I kind of like yours better, KQ :D

Yeah, otherwise, I don't really need to remember things. Though when pointing out a row of travel systems I often point out that the ones with the Triangle Handles have to handles down in the car and are the ones with the puzzle buckles (darn BRU Pioneer system has a flex loc, but a straight handle, so it ruins my rule of thumb :p). Oh, and 'if it has a handle, it rear faces, only'. So I guess I DO have to try to make things memorable for people who are spending about 5 seconds looking at which seat to buy...
