Securekid 300 regret

Ugh. THE BUCKLE. :mad:

My son can't unbuckle himself.

*I* can't unbuckle him without pain. I need both thumbs to depress it and one of those thumbs has a UCL tear.

I didn't look for buckle complaints before buying, just looked at reviews and dimension measurements and ordered one because kiddo wanted a red seat.

Guess it's time to call the company. I think it's crazy that a seat buckle doesn't work with one adult hand. (I can't handle the newer Graco buckles, either. It appears they use or did use the same buckle manufacturer?)

They're AmSafe buckles. Graco is now using IMMI buckles, as of a couple of months ago.

Try pushing at the top of the red button, not the middle. That will help a lot.

Thank you. I'll try that.

Oh, and the "newer" Graco buckles I have trouble with were last year's, not new-new.
