I'm so glad I bought this car seat! It was so easy to install and it is very comfortable for my 2 year old daughter. I was a little hesitant about purchasing this due to some negative reviews on not being able to tighten or putting it together but no. It was easy to tighten and install!

I love this car seat! This is actually the 3rd one that I have purchased - 1 for my car, 1 for my fiance's truck and 1 for the grandparents. It is not super small or lightweight but it will fit in the back of a Ford Focus (rear facing). It is very easy to use and install. I love the height adjus...see moreof the reviewer's review

I purchased this seat. Ib February 2014. I loved it. It was easy to install, the cover came off easily to wash it and i loved the unisex cover. I took the seat out to wash the cover and clean the straps when the entire foam head piece came off with it. I've had this seat less than two years and i no...see moreof the reviewer's review

We bought this seat for my moms car for when she watches our son. This is IMPOSSIBLE to tighten. I have to literally sit in the seat and still can't tighten it. Using the latch system AND seatbelt together. Even had my mom try to tighten it while I sit in the seat. It's next to impossible to loosen ...see moreof the reviewer's review

I love the overall design other than the fact that my toddler can get his little fingers on the latch that keeps the straps tightened. All he has to do is pull the lever up and move his chest forward and it’s loose as can be. Loved it before this happened, now it’s just truly unsafe!!! I wish they m...see moreof the reviewer's review

Extremely difficult to tighten safety harness AND to secure car seat within vehicle. Maybe I got a defective unit, but my experience matches up with what other users have reported. First, there is no locking system to help tighten against the vehicle's seat. Some of the better car seats out there ha...see moreof the reviewer's review
