    Cool.

    So does anyone make a simple forward facing only, namely does not convert to rear facing, harness car seat that is designed to accommodate a 2-4 year old. That isn’t 30 inches wide with a relatively slim back.

    I am getting the sense that the answer is no. But it seems people are very confused by my question.

    my sister has 3, rode home from a wedding with them saturday, it was chaos. My wife keeps asking if we can try for a third so we get a boy.. haha passsssssss.
    I think I'd have a stroke.

    Adopt a 14 year old. Nice and quiet and give them money and they will leave you alone.

    Ok maybe not "nice".

    Our travel seat and the one I have in my car is the Evenflo Titan 65. Its light and slim back and my daughter doesn't mind being in it even for long drives. I just measured it and its ~22" wide.

    Our main seat is the Graco 4 Ever, ... a fukin' beast.

    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.
    Good info. I was just using it as in "they are narrower than others"

    I answered your question. Our 4 year old is in it with a full harness

    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’ll take a look at that. We have a Britax convertible and it’s terrible but maybe this is better.

    We bought one to see if we liked it and after a couple weeks bought a second one for the other vehicle. With the click tight installation is super easy and it fits my kid great. Seems solid. The fabric isn't as plush as what we had in the Clek but its also way easier to clean when he barfed in it.

    What do you not like about your britax convertible? Is it a clicktight (white plastic hull) or the classic style (Black plastic hull)? I sold thousands of those things

    Id recommend the britax grow with me seats as they are the newer version of the pioneer/frontier. Theyre wide though....

    It’s a click tight convertible.

    It’s extremely difficult to tighten and loosen the harness, 100x worse than my diono.

    We have basically just resorted to leaving the harness in fully tightened position at all times because it’s so hit or miss whether you will be able to get it tight again after you loosen.

    Have removed it and taken it apart several times to ensure the belt paths are all without tangles etc. always clear. The seat just sucks.

    Very hesitant to buy another.

    Hate to say it but theres something going on with your seat. Im very familiar with the platform and that harness should be flowing very easily.


    One thing I found happened somewhat often was that the foam of cushions could drift downwards. This would cause excessive friction on the webbing of the harness. Other issues includes food or debris getting caught in the webbing lock, or improperly fed webbing through the various paths.

    I dunno if you live down south but Id be more than happy to take a look at it for ya.

    Also, if youre kiddo is forward facing, make sure the webbing is going straight into teh back of the seat or slightly above the shoulder line. If its going below the shoulder, your headrest is set far too low and that will increase the difficulty in tightening the harness.

    She is still rear facing for now, so path below shoulders still.

    Will review the paths again. But it’s been very frustrating to say the least.

    Is she 12 yet?

    Lol if you think car seats are a headache, good luck with a teenage girl.

    My girl is 4, and I’m perfectly happy to deal with the challenges she gives us now haha.

    This is what I have. Looks like it is 20" wide.

    Haven't had the same issues that you've had. But if you do buy this, be aware the base versions foam isn't the same as the click tight and it can be squeaky as shit.

    Since we are talking g about kids seats and such, we are about to move 1 kid to a booster....hopefully before family vacation. What is the diferance between booster with a back and with out? With back offers some added safety? Or what? Anyone have some forst world experience?

    Small kids need the "belt positioning booster" to keep the belt from decapitating them. Get the basic graco from Walmart and don't worry.
