For many parents, buying a new child-safety seat involves a lot of research. It’s no different for Jennifer Geiger and me when we’re buying new car seats for our Car Seat Checks, though we did have some ideas about what we wanted in our three new car seats.
High on our list was a convertible seat that didn’t need to have its Latch belt threaded through two different seat belt paths as our Britax Roundabout did. It wasn’t difficult to switch the Latch belt from the forward- and rear-facing position paths, but it did lead to a lot of scraped knuckles. Couple that with installing the convertible in both positions in two to three cars during each Car Seat Check, and Jennifer and I were going through a lot of Band-Aids.
