Love this seat, it doesn't deserve all the bad reviews
September 9, 2019
I read all the reviews before purchasing two of these for my twins. I do not understand all the bad reviews about tightening the seat and straps. My straps aren't fraying yet, I will watch for it just in case it happens but so far this is an amazing seat. My boys are MUCH more comfortable and have stopped fussing in their seats and I love all the safety features.
This seat was NOT hard to install, despite people saying even their husbands have a hard time. I'm a single mother, I took the seat out of the box, read the manual, played with loosening and tightening the straps and looked at the seat belt path and the click anchors. Since I'm currently using this rear facing I'm using the tethers. I took it out into the car, clipped on the tethers and pulled the tether belt tight, then got up in the car and put my weight in the seat and gave it another good tug and this seat isn't going anywhere, its super secure and doesn't budge at all. It took a whole 3 minutes.... again NOT HARD
Next I put one of my twins in and did a test fit with the harness, loosened it quite a bit, put him in and tightened it with the strap between the legs, it was NOT HARD, again it was super easy to get him in securely, he wasn't too loose or too tight and he seemed to really enjoy the seat (and now that I'm using them full time its very clear to me that they love these seats). Unless all these people somehow got faulty seats they must be doing something wrong.
My boys also no longer get too hot, they used to sweat terribly in their old seats and come out all wet, since being in these seats, even on hot days they are dry and don't feel over hot. The fabric is much softer and breathes better than other car seat fabrics, plus its machine washable and dryable! that's HUGE.
I do wish it had a bubble level on the rear facing level line, it would be much easier to check level than trying to hold my level up to it, which is too big to get in the right spot.
