I just installed and tethered my Radian 65 RF in my 2007 Odyssey for my 11 month old (17ish pounds and 28.5ish inches). Does everything look okay (angle and tether)?

Looks good! It's reclined a lot for an 11 month old, but it's a hard seat to get upright, so I wouldn't fret over it in the least.

Looks great, as Wendy said, but how much room does the front passenger have when you put the seat back?
As long as the front passenger has adequate knee room, at least a few inches from the dash, the more the better(!), then the install should be just fine.

Oh, and someone has mentioned before that the air bag sensor on the front seat can be affected from the car seat pressing into the back of the vehicle seat, so just keep an eye out for that (basically, the airbag "off" light would come on on the dash.) It's ok to brace the seat against the vehicle seat, but having it press or be jammed up against it would not.


Good job :)

Leg room in the front passenger seat seems adequate for me and my husband is only an inch or two taller than me, so I think it will probably be fine for him as well. I have the front seat moved as far back as I can without it actually touching the Radian.

I don't know if you can tell from the pictures but the 2nd row captains chair (the one the Radian is installed in) is in the center position - I didn't even realize I could do that until I read the article in your siggy about RF tether points in an Odyssey. Talk about making my life easier! Thanks! :)
