TFP Over-rotating in Ody


New member
DS is almost 2 years old and is RF in a TFP, which is in the passenger side captain's chair of our 2007 Odyssey. Just this week I noticed his seat had fallen back to about a 45 degree angle, when it's usually about 38 degrees. So I reinstalled it (using latch) and within a day it had fallen back to about 45 degrees.

This isn't the first seat I've had over-rotation problems with in the Ody's captain's chair. About a year ago, we got a Radian, and it would fall PAST 45 degrees within minutes of installing it, using both latch and seatbelt. So, we got rid of it and got the TFP. This is the first problem I've had with the TFP, and I'm guessing it's because he's grown quite a bit lately.

I intend to get a new seat for him within the next couple months, but until then, any suggestions?

I have an 06 and my TFP installed very upright. Never had any trouble with it changing position either. My DD was at most 24lbs when she was in it though.

No experience with the TF but the angle of the seat back makes a difference in my installs in our Ody. I try to really push seats into the seat back.
