Perhaps you’ve seen members in our facebook group asking about a rear facing only (“infant”) seat be warned to “make sure it’s not rear adjust!” Or perhaps you yourself purchased a rear facing only seat, and you can’t find the adjuster strap to tighten the harness. What’s going on?
Our Facebook page and our Facebook group are home to many, many questions from caregivers. One of the most common questions is how to choose the right car seat. In many cases, the child in question is well over 2 years old and rides forward facing but is not yet ready for a booster. Sometimes a great deal on a convertible car seat seems too good to be true and our users don’t want to pass up what seems like a great deal. The catch is that the convertible or multimode car seat on sale might not be the best value for a child who is already forward facing. That very common scenario begs the question: what type of car seat — convertible, multimode, or combination is best for this kiddo?
Meet our little model. Her parents are putting her in the Graco SnugRide 35 Click Connect that her older brother used. They made sure that it hadn’t expired, they cleaned it according to the instructions in the manual, they verified that they had replaced the buckle in the Graco recall, and they moved the straps down to the lowest slot. But now when they tighten the harness around her, there’s some slack even when they pull it as tight as it can go. What went wrong?
