The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children ride rear-facing until at least two years of age. Extend2Fit features a three-position extension panel that provides five inches of extra legroom allowing your child to ride safely rear-facing longer. The seat can be used rear-facing from 4-50 lbs. and forward-facing from 22-65 lbs. The seat features Simply Safe Adjust which allows you to adjust the height of the harness and headrest as your child grows, InRight LATCH for a one-second LATCH attachment and Fuss Free harness storage which holds the buckle out of the way, so it's easy to get baby in and out.
Excellent Car seat with a capacity of 50lb RF
Let me list the main features of the car seat to begin with.
1.It can accommodate Rear-facing 4-50 lbs., up to 45″ tall and Forward-facing 22-65 lbs., up to 49″ in height.
2. Headset can be adjusted to 10-position
3. Car seat can be reclined to 6 positions 2 for Rear Facing and 3 for Forward Facing.
4. There is a new feature in the car seat which is 4-position extension panel which provides up to 5” of extra legroom.
5. 2 Cup holders.
6. 10 years lifespan from the date of manufacturer.
All of know that the Rear facing is always better till the times the child can sit we should make them sit RF. So 50 lbs of weight limit is really awesome and for tall kids the extension panel works out perfect. That's really a cool feature.
Car seat can be used from a newborn baby to an older child weighing 65 lbs. I wish it also had a booster seat conversion like Graco forever. My toddler is 18 months so I removed the newborn cushions.
Recline option works v smoothly. There is an easy indication on which recline option to be chosen as the weight and age of the child.
I used the vehicle seat belts to install the car seat and it was pretty simple. Not too heavy. Its one of the best car seats I have got and would definitely recommend.atomanu2
Big and Safe!
I have a 2 year old foster daughter that my husband and I adopted last week. She has been with us since she was 6 days old. Our first 2 car seats were Graco's. My husband and I have been jockeying the same car seat between his truck and my car and decided to get another car seat so we could stop the time consuming task of switching back and forth.
This car seat is BIG but safer than the other car seat we have. It does not fit in my husband's 2 door extended cab trucks back seat. If you have a compact car or other people/kids riding with you measure the seat and your back seat.
The head rest is tight against her ears. When she falls asleep in it the head rest keeps her head up straight. (I love that.) It has 2 cup holders. We use one for her sippy cup and the other for snacks or a small toy.
I've got to be honest….I had a hard time figuring out how to lengthen the straps. The button is under the seat cover and a little hard to get to. The manual does describe how to do it but to me it was not clear. And another thing I don't like is that it looks like the seat cover will be hard to remove to wash it. That's important to me. But again the manual shows step by step instructions so it should not be too hard.cocovette
5+stars for superior comfort and safety
I'm very excited to see the new technology Graco has built into this car seat. This technology fills a much needed void in safety which is a car seat capable of holding up to 50 pounds in a rear facing position and this does it well. As a nanny I have much experience in car seats and can say this car seat is also super easy to use and has new great features making it even safer.
It's been proven the safest position for a baby/toddler in a car seat is rear facing up to age 2 or as long as the seat allows which is the problem. Most children are too large to fit in the seat in a rear facing position. this seat solves that problem with an extender for extra leg room. The extender is a hard plastic type platform for the legs to lie on. It easily slides with a push of a button from the bottom of the seat area and can be extended in increments up to 5 inches in length.
This car seat is a convertible car seat which means it can go from infant to toddler to child. this seat can potentially be used for up to 10 years so it could possibly be the only car seat you will ever need making money sense. The seat allows for rear facing up to 50 pounds and forward facing 22-65 pounds with it's solid construction including a steel reinforced frame.
Several great features are built into the seat such as a level indicator which clearly shows if the seat is properly level when it's installed. It can then be reclined in 6 positions. It also has 10 head rest positions as well along with 2 cupholders. My favorite feature though is the new harnass adjustment which allows the height of the harnass to raise or lower by simply squeezing a handle on the top of the seat. No more tedious rethreading from the back required!
Stylish colors of gender neutral black with a subtle grey with teal accents adds to the beauty in design of this exceptional product.JAD12
