Not worth the money
February 6, 2015
I find that this seat is not very user friendly. It is a heavy seat, which I am sure helps it to be safe but the tether straps are hard to undo once they are in place, the seat cover is very complicated to take off, you have to use a screwdriver to losen it around the clicktight latch, and it comes off in several pieces, not something you can whip off and throw in the washer if it gets soiled. Also using the seat belt was a nuisance, the shoulder strap stayed in the way so baby's legs always hit it either going in or out of the seat. Once the seat is installed it is hard to reach the lever to use the reclining positions, so why have them if you can't adjust once seat is installed? Also the strap does not tighten evenly on my GD, one side is always looser than the other and it never feels snug enough to be safe. After using it for a few weeks trying to get used to it we decided this is not the seat for us, too many problems with the design of the seat, GD will be potty training soon, I do not want to go through what you have to go through every time she has an accident just to wash the seat cover. Do people who design these chairs ever actually use them? I often wonder. We are ordering the chicco next fit, which is what I was going to go with in the first place, should have trusted my instincts!
ConsSeat cover is not one piece, needs a screwdriver to take off, screw fell inside the car seat when I tried to take it off. Seatbelt gets in way in rear facing posiition, straps do not tighten evenly on each side and one side is always loose. All others already mentioned also. It does not come with premium tethers, tethers are hard to remove from car once seat installed rear facing.
