    The diono might be heavy, but it’s pretty compact. You’ll have a hard time finding anything smaller, I’d imagine.

    I figured it was a question worth asking.

    It shocks me that there is no slimmer option than a convertible.

    Does anyone make a quality forward facing only ( non convertible ) harness car seat for young toddlers ( 20-30lb ).

    Serious question.

    Lots of forward only boosters. But finding a decent one that is a harness seems annoying.

    Trying to find something with less bulk to use forward only in my car.
    We have the Grow-With-You ClickTight car seats from Britax for our 4 year old. Its a harness seat that converts to a booster. They start at 25lbs based on the website.

    I bought a forward only one off Amazon. It's light and I'd recommend a seat cover. It's pretty big though, my 4 year old sits in it and has tons of room plus built in cupholders. I don't remember the brand but it's just one of those random cheaper brands. Think it was around $150 and works as our second seat in the car that she doesn't ride in daily.

    We use the Graco 4 Ever for my older son, and will buy another when the infant is out of his carrier.

    Size wise, a buddy of mine has the same chair in his S4, and I saw a Taycan with the same seat once haha.

    +1 Graco 4ever (purchased 2 as result of Beyonds strong recommendation in another thread). But that is a convertible rear/front seat. I don't think he wants that?

    Yea I have a 3QX diono convertible and a britax convertible (what a piece of junk compared to the diono btw).

    Just wondering if anyone knew of a forward only harness seat that is slimmer than the convertibles. Basically a seat for kids 2-4 years old only rather than this swath of seats that accommodate everything from a newborn to an 8 year old. I can only manage this accommodation adds bulk hence the curiosity.

    My thesis is these seats have gotten out of hand trying to be one size fits all.

    Can confirm. Trying to switch from our Uppababy infant car seat to a convertible seat... FML x 1,000,000. There are no less than a dozen stickers on the side. "Do this", "Must not do this!".... "Warning"!!!!

    Not sure what justifies convertible, we have a couple Clek's that apparently can fit 3 a across in a bunch of vehicles. They seem big to me still. Looking forward to getting the oldest into a booster this winter.

    Somehow, there is no actual legislation regarding booster seats in the province of Alberta.

    Coming from a guy who spend a lot of his childhood laying on a foam pad in the bed of a pickup I am not overly sympathetic to these regulations.

I can only manage this accommodation adds bulk hence the curiosity.

    My thesis is these seats have gotten out of hand trying to be one size fits all.

    Just wanting to offer some clarity here on convertible seats and combo harness/booster seats.

    Most convertible seats go to either 65lbs or 49". Thats a big kid, hence why they are wider than infant car seats (the one with the handle).

    The forward facing only seat that are combo harness than booster are usually even wider because in harness mode, they accommodate up to 65lbs and varying height restrictions depending on the brand. Britax for example, with their Pioneer/frontier/Pinnacle line (now Grow with you), go to 57" inches tall vs the 49" for a typical convertible seat.

    BUT, these seats also convert to a booster seat which then has a weight capacity of up to 120 lbs! They are wide. Booster seats are also wider because the arm rests are part of the safety system which holds the lap belt in place over the kids legs, rather than riding up over their abdomen.


    Many people fall for the marketing gimmick of '3 across'. Most cars cannot have 3 seats installed properly on the same row, even if they are narrow seats such as the Dionos or the Cleks. Its all bullshit.

    It gets even worse when you try to do 3 booster seats side by side or convertible seats next to booster seats because you cant access the vehicles latch plate to secure the seatbelt as there is no clearance.
