👤We already own a Graco 4ever and purchased a second one. We are completely satisfied with this one and it is very similar to the other one. The 4ever has a few additional features, but I don't think they are better than the MySize. The MySize style would be more comfortable with these straps. I removed the comfortable head rest cushions on the sides because they seemed to push her head forward. I think the MySize might be a bit easier, though we haven't done it yet, because they both have strap slots on the sides to hold the straps. The people say the Buckle is not long enough. It is easy to adjust the seat in your vehicle if you rethreading the buckle on the bottom side. I believe people are only adjusting the position through the fabric slots, not the plastic of the seat. If you do it correctly, the entire buckle will remain the same length if you do it correctly. It is long if done correctly. I tried this seat in the store and thought it was hard to adjust the strap length when she was sitting in it, but the new one seems to be fine. I don't know what causes that. If it becomes an issue, I'll try to update. I thought the 4ever would feel better in the safety as well. This one is just as safe. The seat does not move around in the vehicle. I've heard people say that the top of their carseat can wiggle because the base is narrow, but this is not the case. The base is wide and the seat is low. If we were buying again, we would go with the MySize because the extra money doesn't seem to give you any valuable features and I think this one will be more comfortable for her. The shoulder strap covers under the chest buckle seem to fit better and can reach the cup holder.
👤This is a good size for a small car. This fits both front and rear of my car. It does not require that the front seats be pushed up too far or too close to the dash.
👤I have a carseat for my 1 and 2 year olds, which still uses it rear facing. The only complaint I had was that the buckle pinched their legs when I fastened their belts. Someone said there is a way to adjust the seat belt under the seat. The problem of leg pinching is solved by taking the seat out and adjusting it there. I tried it and both my boys are fine. I hope other parents will see this and it will help them. I thought you had to completely remove the car seat to adjust it. I was able to move it without removing the seat.
👤When our twins were 15 months old, we got these. We needed something that would fit in our small car. It works well in a small car with no sacrificing of leg room, which is important to me since I am tall. It was long lasting. We have used this for over 4 years because our twins are almost 6. We will probably change to boosters because they are easier for school to drop off. The fabric can be washed when needed. Pulling up on the handle can easily adjust the straps heights. There are small pockets on both sides of the seat that can be used to store the buckle. Being able to put one in the seat and easily put them up without having to use the straps is a lifesaver for me. The seat is comfortable and the fabric is soft, even after a lot of cleanings. Installation is easy. Can't think of anything else that would be better than an additional cup holder. My kids have used these items the longest. You can find good seats with bells and whistles, but why bother? These have been worth it. We were very pleased with our purchase.
You can use 4 in 1 car seat for 10 years if you change from rear facing harness car seat to forward facing harness car seat, high back belt positioning booster, or backless belt positioning booster.

👤Please read the manual. The first bad review I saw was of a sleeping baby girl with her neck in a bad position because her parents didn't install it correctly. She is small and should be in the rear facing position with the straps below her shoulders, which would mean the headrest would be lower so she wouldn't be in an awkward position. Also, tighten the straps. The installation is hard at the seatbelts. If your baby is 40 lbs or more, make sure to use the seatbelt and avoid LATCH because my son is close to 40 lbs. If you front face, please choose a position that is easy for my son to fall asleep in. When facing forward, make sure the straps are above the shoulders. The nextfit zip is easy to take off and wash, and it is easier to put a baby in the middle seat. The side protection ofChicco makes it a boat, but it doesn't have the bulkyness of Graco Trueshield. I bought 2 and will update my review as time goes on.
👤The baby is not comfortable to sleep in. I was expecting a good all in one car seat for my baby but this is one of the worst purchases I have ever made. I regret buying it because it might hurt my baby's neck. It is too expensive to just get rid of it.
👤The Bryant style was ordered by me. In all of the photos, it is grey, but it is burgundy. It is grey in a customer question. It is not grey.
👤I'm really upset to write this. I like graco. I would caution you against using this car seat. My son is 4 years old and I have a car seat that is facing the other way. Every time he falls asleep, there is limited neck support and he is in pain the next day. Poor guy! The next thing is the safety lock. If the car seat is rear facing, the latch system can be used. The graco car seat can be front facing. I can use the system. Not using the latch system makes me very nervous. I would caution you on those two things. Both safety and comfort. Hope this helps!
👤She was outgrowing her infant seat when she moved out of her old car seat. It was easy to make the adjustments so she could wear it like a glove. The modifications they made to the DLX version are nice, but not necessary. The center strap/button is in a better place to ensure a snug fit and the cover is easier to remove. If your budget is tight, the non-DLX is equally secure and easy to manipulate, even if you have 2 DLX versions.
👤I bought this two weeks ago. It took me a long time to pick a car seat for my son. I read reviews on different car seats. My husband thought it was crazy to spend that much on a car seat. I really like this car seat, so I'm glad I argued. If it gets dirty, it's easy to remove the padding. Just a few clips and boom it off. You can adjust the harness straps by pushing a button and pulling up. Instead of having to take everything apart and put it back together again. I like the extra padding and the seat positions. It's easy to install but it's difficult to uninstall. Some people were complaining about weird noises, but I haven't heard them. I have noticed a few draw backs to this type of car seat since purchasing it. My son is 5 months old and needs a carrier while we're out. I can't put him in a shopping cart, so I'm looking for a small sling or carrier that I can keep in the car for when we're out. The second con I have noticed with this type of seat is that you can't take these out or they aren't supposed to be, unlike the infant carriers that you can carry with you anywhere. There are restaurants. I don't eat out much. I can't put my baby in a restaurant because the car seat is in the car. I have a carrier so I'm looking for a portable high chair for those situations. I couldn't eat until the family was done. Since he was strapped to my chest, I could eat since he wasn't in a sling.

👤I own the 4Ever Extend2fit but needed to upgrade my second child's infant car seat to a convertible one. I didn't need a second E2F as my rear-facing 4 year old was getting ready to transition into forward facing mode. I decided that the Grows4Me would make the most sense for my growing family after doing research on another E2F. The most basic of the 4Ever line is what I received after the G4M. The fabric of my E2F is different from the G4M. Some stitching is different from fabric. The G4M has less newborn inserts. The seat cover for the G4M is held together by a hook and loop setup. The G4M has one cup holder instead of two. It was a great budget buy because of the differences in comfort and safety. The 4Ever line has all the necessities and luxuries for a great price. The best part is that it fit in my car. Take that all you non-believers.
👤My daughter and I were t-boned by a garbage truck 10 days after we installed this car seat. She slept through my injury without a scratch on her head. I can't afford another one. I will be buying again when I can. It is worth every penny. 100 percent!
👤I couldn't use it for my baby so I didn't give a lot of stars. It's not for newborns. He was too small for it. He hasn't been switched to this car seat. He is four months old.
👤It may feel like a chore, but reading the manual will help you get the best fit for your child. I researched a lot to find the right carseat for my daughter. She is over 30 inches tall. Her seat was too tight for her height and she hadn't maxed out her weight capacity. I am a licensed social worker with a specialty in Child Welfare and have used SEVERAL carseats. This was one of the easiest ones I've installed and I found it to be easier to maneuver than her infant carseat was. I have "mother's wrists" as a result of my pregnancy which makes lifting heavy items very difficult for me. It was easy to lift and it did not cause any strain. My daughter's first car ride was in the photo. I noticed that she had more head support from this seat than she would've in her infant car seat, because she fell asleep.
👤The design has many features and is thick. The instructions are easy to understand in the manual. The position of the child on the bottom of the car seat base is correct. Sorry about the background noise in the video.
👤It's a hassle to anchor them to the car with the clips. Getting them on is not too difficult. I was not aware that I was ordering this. The base doesn't come off. I had to be escorted by a nurse to show her the one I had before I left the hospital. Not a fan. I would have paid an extra 100$ for the other version if I had known it would be this bad. There are more heads up! This isn't compatible with any stroller. That's correct, not just. I need to find a Graco. No my parents friends. Any troll. The base did not come off. That means no stroller. Leave the car seat alone. I was going to give it a 3 star. It is.
The installation of SnugLock Technology is easy and compatible with all Graco Click Connect rear facing infant car seats. The In Right LATCH system has a one second attachment. Easy to read bubble level indicator helps eliminate installation confusion. You can store the manual in the easily accessible manual storage location if you want. Check your state and local laws for car seat usage. Check your state and local laws for car seat usage.
👤The base that came with our car seat was very difficult to remove. I had to ask my husband to help me do it. The button that you push to loosen the strap gets caught under the base and it's almost impossible to push down. All your body weight is required. I watched a lot of videos to see if there was a simpler way. After 45 minutes of fighting it, my husband was able to get the base out of his car. We gambled on this base and it is a little different. Both of us can get it in and out of this base much easier. It feels safe and can still tighten.
👤Click and Classic are not compatible. Even though both are Model 35, there is no distinction offered in the product description. "To Bad..." is what Graco just said. Classic is obsolete and not compatible.
👤I love that it punches the seat belt. Before you install the car seat, you need to lift up the grey lever, put the seatbelt through the slots, tighten the belt, and then push the grey lever down over the seatbelt. When you try wiggling, the car seat doesn't move when you push down. It is easy to remove the car seat.
👤I bought this base for my husband's car. The red pattern on the Click Connect car seat and stroller travel system is what we have here. The base that came with the package was easy to install. The base that was said to be the most accurate was this one. I got a stroller, carseat, and base for 120 bucks and I feel like it's a little pricey. The carseat clicks into this base. I used the LATCH system for both of our vehicles. The base is very sturdy and can't be pushed more than a little left or right. It seems like this base isn't tight enough. We have it installed correctly, and I can move the base quite a bit. The strap seems to tighten. It tightens up but then slacks. It's getting locked in place because you can't loosen the strap. It seems like it's not as safe. I wish we could have bought the grey one that came with the travel system.
👤We bought an extra base so that we don't have to change it. It was easy to get a base snug and buckled down, but it would be difficult to pull it out. It's worth it to be able to set the car seat in and go. We have one in my car, one in my husband's, so it makes things easier to coordinate with care takers. We might buy a third base for our daughter.
👤It's the same as the one that came with our car seat. It is easier to use now. The seat belt and hooked strap can be used for added protection. It was worth the money to have the car seat easy to use and not have to re- strap it to our vehicle. It's safer for the baby as there's less of a chance of something going wrong. The shipment was quicker than we expected.
You can enjoy 10 years of use with the 4-in-1 seat that grows with your child. It is easy to remove the seat cover without removing the harness.

👤The 4ever xtend2fit was advertised for a black friday sale. My wife and I got one of these for a good price from the babies and we are closing sales. We have a second baby on the way in April and thought we could use one in each car until we need both. The description was read by me. It has a tightlatch system. We have the same thing. The issue is here. I notice different colors and click through. The other "color" options were cheaper. I understand that manufacturers sell less popular colors for less. It happens all the time. If you change the color, you also change the product. The 4ever extend2fit is still said to be. It's not the same as the EZ Tight LATCH system. Their basic one is more difficult to tighten. To take it out. That is a large task. If this doesn't get resolved, I will be returning the product and buying a different brand. I don't like the idea of advertising and changing the product description to make it look different.
👤The car seat has grown with my child over the last 3 years. She is a tall girl and it has fit her perfectly. It is very easy to adjust to her needs and secure her car. I don't mind taking a few extra minutes to install her seat because I know she's safe. The quality and safety features of the car seat make up for the fact that it is a little heavy. Our car was totaled in the accident. The impact was so hard that we spun our car around in a circle and the tail light came out on the other side of my car. Her car door was split in half. My daughter walked away with a bruise on her forehead and a side impact cushion. She has had more injuries than this from falling. Her car seat didn't budge at all. Even though it was a hard impact, it was completely secured. After looking at photos, doctors at the ER were surprised that she had only a bruise. I am so thankful for this seat. We replaced her seat with the same one and didn't think twice.
👤We had this seat for about 8 months and liked the idea of it being a one and done seat. We started potty training. One time the seat was soaked by our daughter. I took the seat out, cleaned it, and put it back in the car. The smell of urine was present in the car about 3 days later. The seat was the source. I took it out again and realized that it was impossible to get to the base because of the urine. I need to either buy a new seat or deal with the smell. It is hard to buy a new seat for the amount we paid, but the smell is overwhelming. If you decide to buy this seat, make sure to put down pee pads during potty training.
Your child's car seat can grow from a rear-facing harness to a forward-facing harness. Your child can safely ride rear-facing longer with the Extend2fit 4-position panel. Your child can ride rear-facing for up to 50 pounds. The Protect Plus is engineered by Graco. The plush head and body inserts help keep your baby comfortable. Simply Safe has a no-rethread harness and a no-rethread headrest. Simply Safe has a no-rethread harness and a no-rethread headrest.
👤This is our 8th car seat and 5th child. We have had several before this one. It's my favorite of all the car seats we've ever had, so I had to review it. It's seriously. The Diono is heavy and difficult to adjust to, the Britax is cumbersome, and the Evenflos are cheap and thin. None of them have covers that are easy to wash. The covers are easy to put back together. The metal parts you want to be safe and sturdy are latches, tether, etc. The adjusting pieces are large and easy to grasp. Oh! That is the other thing. I couldn't get my hand into any of the others in the way I needed to, not for adjusting, not for installing, and not for moving stuff around. I can get my paw through the appropriate areas. The harness adjustment feature is enough to give repeat business. I didn't say anything dirty while installing. Heeheehee
👤I couldn't ask for a better car seat when I bought it at Target. My daughter is 16 months old and still rear facing, she is very comfortable with the extended leg room. She was laughing and playing in the back seat of the car that was totaled in the accident, even though nothing happened. I just added it to my cart and will be buying it again for my new car.
👤I was frustrated with how hard it was to tighten the seatbelt. You need to have the strength of 10,000 people to tighten it. I figured it out. Pull the slack from around the child's hips once the chest clip and belt are buckled. The chest clip and shoulder strap covers should be lowered. The slack is above the chest clip. The strap needs to be tightened. It will be very easy. We shouldn't have to go through this, but once you know how to do it, it's not bad. It is easy to remove the cover, but it is not so easy to put it on. The seat cover is secured with small elastic loops. The loops need to be threaded through small holes to reach the hook. If you don't have a crochet hook, you will throw the seat away. With the crochet hook, I was able to thread the elastic loop through the small holes and over the fastening hooks with very little effort.
👤We don't plan ahead very well. We were worried when our kid was upgraded to a convertible car seat. We weren't sure if we would be able to find a small car that fit my wife's small car. We looked for a budget friendly car seat because we are already spending an arm and leg for diaper changing. We wanted something to keep him calm. We have three digit temperatures where we are located, which means we have something that could fit in a corolla and the passenger didn't have to move their seat to the point where they were kissing the dash. The fact that it grows with the child makes it a better investment than a budget friendly convertible seat. The fabric allows our son to breathe during the hot days. He gets a little sweat on his back but that is normal with all car seats. I know he doesn't mind the seat because he always passes out with each car ride. We were able to keep the front passenger and driver seat in the back of the car. I enjoy any little leg room I can get. This seat is perfect for your child.
A 4-position base helps ensure an accurate install and helps keep a baby comfortable as he or she grows. The easy-to-read level indicator makes it easy to know if it is installed correctly. Installation of a stay-in-car base is easy. A combination of the most rigorous crash tests that helps to protect your child in frontal, side, rear, and rollover crashes; additional testing based on the New Car Assessment Program and for extreme car interior temperatures is what the Protect Plus engineered is.

👤Click connect to fit with my graco snugride. The extra base is good.
👤I got this for my van because I was tired of fooling with a seat without a base. Some reviewers said it was easy to install, others said it was hard to install. Just went with it. Most of the time, installing all bases is not very fun, but it's not a big deal. The base that came with the car seat is more difficult to install than this one. The seat belt clip feels impossible to thread through.
👤You want to make sure it fits, and shopping for this stuff can be confusing. It becomes clear that the confusion is shared by many when you look at the questions section. There is a The car seat has a sticker that says it works with Grace Click Connect. I had doubts when buying items that weren't related to Graco. I went ahead and placed the order after I saw the return policy. It fit perfectly on the car seat. The car seat is compatible with this base.
👤It's hard to take out. The belt part will not loosen if you move it or take it out. Time and money are wasted. The older versions of this base worked better for me.
👤The seat base is screwed. The belt won't pull enough to tighten it using the latch system, no matter what I do and how many times I try. The belt locks at random points. The base is still several inches of give. I clipped it and tried to adjust it. Adjusting it with a button pushed and unpushed. It shouldn't be difficult to tighten this with a belt. The company I am entrusting my child's safety to can't even get the simple stuff right.
👤It was easy to install the lap belt in the center back seat of the 2008 Camry. My husband and I bought a combo. We have 2 cars and it only came with one base. This works perfectly in my car, and is much easier than putting the car seat in every time I have to go somewhere. Just put the infant seat on the base.
👤The base will not get tight. The belt that tightens it glides along the base. There was no grip or movement. We bought this for our first child and will not spend more money on this company. Two bases were bought by us. The other base has no level indicator. It's shocking that they won't spend the extra couple of dollars to include a level on all bases because it's life and death with the baby sitting at it. They only include it if you spend more than that. I don't respect this company and will return everything GRACO we have.
👤It was very easy to use. When the car seat is removed, it catches on one side. It's not a big deal. It's a bit harder to get the car seat out.
👤The base original, buenos materiales...
Two seats are in a booster seat. The booster seat converts from a forward-facing harness to a highback belt-positioning seat. The Simply Safe Adjust Harness System allows the head and harness to adjust in one motion. In belt-positioning booster mode, the integrated harness storage compartment stores unused harness straps. Your child's headrest grows with you. There are two recline positions and 10 head rest positions in a car seat. Keep your child's drink close with integrated, dual cup holders. The belt guides help position the seat belt.
👤One of the most important products for toddlers is a car seat. Consumer Reports recently finished testing on toddler-boosters and said parts of five popular toddler-booster car seats broke. What they found and what parents can do about it are included in this. Toddler-booster seats are forward facing and can be used initially with a five point harness and then they can be used as a booster with the car's own seat belts. All seats must meet federal safety crash test requirements in order to be sold, but Consumer Reports' crash evaluations are more rigorous. The Britax Frontier ClickTight, Britax Pioneer, Cosco Finale, Graco Atlas 65, and the Harmony Defender 360 booster seats were found to break when tested with dummies whose weight is close to the seat's limits. "If the harness or top tether breaks, it can compromise the seats' ability to protect the child in a subsequent crash event," said Consumer Reports. It may allow the child to move further forward, if the harness disengages completely, the seat is no longer restraining the child. There were no injuries related to the structural failures revealed in Consumer Reports crash tests. What should you do if you own one of these seats? CR says that you should not stop using the seat if you don't have a replacement. A basic margin of safety is provided by any car seat, and it is better than no seat at all. If your child is less than 40 pounds, you can use this seat with the five-point harness. If your child weighs more than 40 pounds, you should use the seats in booster mode. CR says you should replace your car seat if it's too small for it to fit the booster and vehicle seat belts correctly. Britax, Cosco, Graco, and Harmony all stated that their seats meet federal standards and that CR's testing differed from the government's. Consumer Reports says that the best way to replace a child's car seat is with a new one.
👤The part that protects his brain broke and fell off. When I went to clean the pads, I found out. Take the pads off if you have one. I have four of these. I want to replace them all.
👤Absolutely love it! I don't need a car seat anymore. I think it's the total package. My car looks great again, and I'm confident that my son is safe. The last car seat was green and covered in stains within a month. There are a few features that I like. There will never be a stain that I can't remove. My son falls asleep in the car a lot, so no more bobbing head. My son's head is kept straight while he sleeps. My son can't escape the easy buckle. TheRemovable cover is easy to keep clean. There are more features, but the ones listed were most important to me.
👤I ordered two car seats at the same time and they both arrived a year ago. They only have 6 years left. If you are buying a new product, it should be within a month or two of the manufacture date. If you have a smaller SUV that allows for reclining back seats, you can recline the seats in my ford f350. The recline option makes it easier for the kids to sleep. The shoulder heigh adjustment is very easy to do. It's a big plus that cheaper options make you rethread. The seat is light and made of plastic which the higher end GRACO's have a steel core. The push to click seat belt style found on higher end car seats is not the same as the simple metal clasps under the seat. The materials are plastic and the fabric is not the most durable, but I'm very happy with my purchase, it was a year old when we received them. If life span is important to you, you might want to check with the vendor before ordering. Thanks!
Leave the other hand free as you adjust the handle. Silent shade canopy is easy to adjust without disturbing a baby. The In Right LATCH system has an attachment. Do not bleach. The base is 4 position and can be adjusted to fit your vehicle. Easy to read indicator helps eliminate installation confusion. Easy to read indicator helps eliminate installation confusion.
👤My 11 year old was in a car accident and the car was totaled, but he was completely safe. After the crash, I ordered another one. Highly recommended!
👤Our one week old baby survived this horrible accident with no known injuries. This car seat is very good. Thank you for an excellent product. His old seat will be replaced with the same model.
👤I am very impressed with this seat. I bought a Cosi car seat a month ago that was more expensive than this one. I don't like it. I only used it 5 times and it was terrible, I wish I could return it and get this graco car seat from the beginning. The canopy is not loud. The one click handle makes it easy to take a car seat in and out. The seat is soft and comfortable, unlike many others that use cheap camping material fabric. The base is easy to open and the car seat is easy to close. I feel it is very safe and sturdy and is light enough to carry around. I am very happy with this car seat.
👤I wish I had this infant seat for my first child. If you purchase a car seat with an Amazon Prime registry discount, you will be hard pressed to find a better one. We used the seat and base that came with our stroller travel system, and it was a pain to use. We had to use a pool noodle because the base did not adjust. We had to manually adjust the straps in the back when we put our son in and out of the seat. The infant insert was useless and we used blankets around his head. Both hands had to adjust the handle. It was annoying when we upgraded to a convertible seat, but we still used it. I wanted to get something nicer. The seat is different from all those things. The handle requires one hand to raise and lower, the straps loosen and tighten with ease, the fabric is comfortable and supportive, and the base is adjusted to get the seat perfectly level. The canopy makes this seat look high end. It works with our old stroller, which is a plus. I don't know what we were missing out on. I looked at a lot of infant seats before I bought this one, and I am very happy with the price point, and it is a fantastic choice.
👤The seat is very nice and easy to use, one button handle makes it easy to get on and off the base. I felt it was easy to adjust to my little lady's small frame because she is 6 lbs 1 oz. My daughter is at about ten pounds.
👤I have had a car seat for almost a week. I don't like car seats that aren't sturdy or bulky and I have returned a few online because they didn't feel right. I don't want a sleek design. I want to be safe. I had watched a few videos on the reviews for this car seat and found the true shield side impact protection to be intriguing. When it arrived, it felt nice and sturdy, and I was pleasantly surprised. Extra padding on the sides makes them a little bulky. It was easy to set up and install in the car. It's nice to have a feature where you can adjust the base. The button for the handle can get stuck in place at times and you have to push it to get it to move. I am very happy with this seat. Love the products from Graco. The graco car seats are awesome. The only downside is that there is no basket to carry the baby in.
It was designed to help protect your rear facing child from 5-40 pounds. Simply Safe Harness System adjusts the harness and headrest height with one easy motion. A combination of the most rigorous crash tests that helps to protect your child in frontal, side, rear, and rollover crashes; additional testing based on the New Car Assessment Program and for extreme car interior temperatures is what the Protect Plus engineered is. The headrest is easy to adjust using one hand. Installation in the rear-facing position using LATCH and an easy to read level indicator was painless. Installation in the rear-facing position using LATCH and an easy to read level indicator was painless.
👤I wish I could give this seat a 3.5 star rating, but that option doesn't exist, so I went up to a four instead of a three. This car seat has been with us since February of 2016 It's been about 8 months since I wrote this, and it's been one year. When we purchased this car seat for my son, he was just one year old. He is an average sized child. We were in a passenger side impact car accident on the freeway last week and need to replace this car seat because my son was in it when it was side swiped. As I was thinking about what I would like in the next car seat, I thought about some things I don't like about this car seat, as well as some things I like. I thought it would be helpful for people to see my list of pros and cons after using the Condender 65 for over a year and a half. I kept my son safe in the car accident. The five point harness system was still installed tightly and there were no visible signs of damage. It's really affordable. It was cheap, but not cheap quality-wise. I didn't want to spend $300 on a Britax car seat if I could get away with it. I never considered the cup holder when buying a car seat because my son was barely a year old, but it has been great for holding toys, drinks, and snacks. It's easy to clean. The Britax and Chicco convertible models don't have cup holders built in which is a big problem for me. The ones that clip on seem flimsy and I've read a lot of mixed reviews that make those kinds of cupholders seem more an "afterthought" and don't really feel like a part of the seat. My son knows that he would pull them off and throw them on the floor. I read a review where a mom said her child did this for $30 to sit on the floor of their car. It's fairly light without feeling flimsy. It is 15.2 lbs, which sounds right to me. My niece has a Britax Pioneer car seat that is 26 lbs. The "Simply Safe Adjust" harness system at the top of the car seat is very convenient. It's nice to be able to press a button and pull it as your child grows, instead of having to re-thread the straps. It's easy to rethread the buckle. There is no "recline" button, but this could be a pro or con. If you are using the seat for forward or rear facing, you just flip the little wedge at the base of the seat. I never had an issue with it. We used it for both forward and rear facing. The little ball that indicates proper positioning was in the perfect place each time, without any adjustments or boosting in my Honda Pilot. Black straps! They hide the stains and clean them easily. All of the cons are personal preference and convenience issues. I have no doubt that this car seat is safe. It is difficult to move this seat from one car to another. The cheaper 'hook' style of straps are the ones that are used in cars, not the nicer ones that have a button like a seatbelt. They're a problem to get out of. It's a pain and a half to get in and out of my parents' BMW 5 series and my husband's Honda Civic, so I've transferred this from my Honda Pilot to my husband's Honda Civic. I end up sweaty and swearing. It is not helpful that the strap you use to adjust the seat is only on one side, so you have to climb into your vehicle or mess with it. We had to change it twice. When it came out of the box, my son was in the back of the car, and the adjuster was on the left side of the seat. It's more convenient to have the strap on the side of the door. You have to thread the belt through the seat because you can't just pull it out. When my son switched to forward facing, we had to adjust it again. These are the little things that you don't want to waste time on as a parent. If you could adjust the slack/tightness from both sides, it would be much more convenient. The little bar clip with a button that allows you to adjust the latch belt on the one side is very frustrating to use. It does nothing when you press it half the time. It is supposed to let go of its grip on the belt so you can get slack in the belt to remove the latch from the car or tighten it. My friend's car seat has an issue with the latch button. I am not a bad person, but I have lost patience trying and sometimes I have to ask my husband to mess with it. Stains. I have always been too lazy to take the entire cover off and wash it, even though I was positive I could remove the seat after the accident, because I didn't think I could do it. I have never been able to get the stains out of the seat insert with bleach. I wish they were easier to clean because it looks filthy, unfortunately, with a toddler it's unavoidable. I couldn't get the stains out of this seat, so I gave up. We had a seat in Glacier. The gray is shown in a photo. If you remove the lighter gray seat pad, the stains won't show. The little pad has always been left in for comfort. My friend with the same car seat has said that they washed the seat after their daughter had an accident and it took quite some time to dry. She didn't think the fabric would hold up to multiple machine washings. The five point harness that goes over the child is very difficult to use. I had a lot of issues with them not adjusting equally, which is unsafe. The straps seem prone to twisting and making the buckle backwards. The pull strap at the base of the seat can be difficult to pull tight enough. I felt like I would be pulling and yanking and it wouldn't be tight enough, so it drove me crazy. There is no recline handle to adjust the seat's incline. This could be considered a pro or con depending on how you look at it. The most important thing about the Contender 65 is that it kept my son safe in an accident, even though I didn't care for it much. We decided on the 4Ever car seat from Graco because I have faith in them. It fixes most of the "cons" on this list and has all of the features I loved about the Contender 65. I paid $238 for it on Amazon, but the price has fluctuated, and I've seen it as low as $199 on Amazon.
A harness booster helps protect your child. They have increased the weight minimum from 30 to 40 pounds to continue to meet industry standards. The harness system allows the head and harness to adjust in one motion. Do not bleach. Busy, active parents will love the lightweight, portable seat. Your child's headrest grows with you. 2 cup holders keep drinks and snacks close to hand. The belt guides help position the seat belt.
👤Highly recommend! My son is 4 years old. 2.5 months ago, we got into a horrible car accident. I hit a pole, my car was totaled, and my son had minor whiplash and was released from the hospital the same day. I broke my nose, left ankle, right knee and was 800-273-3217 I have to give credit to this seat for his injuries being so minimal. I bought him another one last week because my car caught on fire in the accident and the seat did as well.
👤I don't usually write reviews. This car seat in the high back booster mode saved my five year olds life this Christmas Eve. Her grandmother was with her. The car flipped onto its side. The side of the car. She was in the driver's seat. We left the church service with her and our little boy. Daddy. We rode home. She does not have a scratch. I am amazed. Our guardian angels in heaven were watching over her tonight and she was safe and secure thanks to the car seat. The family with young children in the other car were safe as well. I have always purchased graco. I will continue to do that. Their customer service is excellent.
👤This is the second seat I've bought, so I'm going to write a review. The seat held up well in a crash. The seat was installed on the side. My husband and daughter came home safely that evening thanks to Ford and Graco. There is no higher praise for a car seat. This is the seat I recommend to everyone with forward facing kids and those with multiple kids. It's perfect for 3 situations. It is easy to install and second to none in my experience. I keep this in our second car so that I can adjust it between my three daughters with ease. They all say it's comfortable. I've had experience with a lot of different car seats and seat combinations with three young children and two cars. The seat is simple and has been my go-to seat recently. It's not fancy, it's not expensive, but it kept my daughter alive, and that's all I could ask for.
👤I thought I could help someone out by writing a review. I almost returned it the night I got it. I researched online for tips to get a good install. I tried tolatch first, but theadjuster kept getting in the way. I couldn't get the seat belt tight enough after locking it. The trick is to leave enough slack in the seat belt to pull as hard as you can until the seat belt is absolutely tight, then lock the retractor and put the excess in. Without pulling the belt horizontally, it wiggled 3 or more inches. It's not safe for a crash. I'm glad for forums online and tips for a tight install. Hope this helps.
