Summary: Installing the seat went smooth. Even adjusting the belts and removing the pad overlay was pretty smooth (after a youtube video showing how to remove the crotch belt to relocate it to a different slot). My only complaint as of now, is that once you put your child in the seat, you have to dig and fish out the strap clips to insert them into the crotch belt. The little clips tend to fall all the way down the straps into the seat of the chair.
Summary: We picked up a second one after our daughter demanded that both of her car seats have cup holders (how did we survive as kids without a single cup holder?). Easy to install, stays tight against the seat and child, and fits compact rear seats.
Summary: I got for the great reviews I read. I agree, I can see and feel that my toddler is more secure than other car seats we had in the past. I thought you can put it rear facing, I didn't find a way how. If you don't have a car for the harness ( my doesn"t), The seat belt has to front and across, making it uncomfortable the child (my opinion). Overall excellent product.
Summary: This carseat was perfect for our family. I wanted to find a safe carseat that would be the last one I had to buy. I had bought Graco baby gear in the past and never been disappointed. I was really impressed how easy it was to install, much easier than the previous rear facing seat. Only used it in 5 pt harness mode. Love the cupholder and hide away compartments. It is rather heavy so I would not recommend if you are taking in and out of car.
Summary: Maybe we have gotten used to terrible writing in general. I would have hoped for more from a big brand name manufacturer. There is a serious error in the description of shoulder strap height adjustment, i.e., the manual shows a diagram with 2 columns of 4 shoulder adjustment slots and describes how important it is to adjust the straps just above the shoulders, but there is only one set of slots for the shoulder height adjustment.
Summary: This car seat worked well for our eldest so now all of our kids have this car seat. This is a cute color. It fits all pocket items, sunglasses and water bottle. What kid could ask for more?! Only one complaint. The top buckle is harder to squeeze open than our other models. ?? Still, this is a great car seat.
Summary: This seat is highly rated for safety and converts to a booster seat, it is well made and comfortable (according to our two year old). However, the latch system which attaches the seat to the car is very difficult to use. There is no release button, you have to try to stick your whole hand down between the car's seat and back, find the latch where it is attached to the loop, squeeze the metal of the latch to open it, and while still squeezing, lift the latch to disengage...
