  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 9/17/2012 – … This seat is so much easier to use than any other car seat. It is very easy to install with the easy LATCH straps. The shoulder straps are easy to adjust, you don’t even have to take your kid out of the seat…. The straps are also easy to tighten and loosen to get kids in and out. The cover comes off pretty easily to wash it, without even taking the seat out of the car….  The cup holder is completely useless but thats really not a big deal…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – 9/12/2012 – The car seat is huge and is hard to install rear facing, but great for forward facing children. Additionally my daughter did not have enough head support without additional accessories. Would not buy another because it’s bulky, but it will do for now…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 7/28/2011 – … I love that the head rest is adjustable up and down as your little one grows! Installation took less than three minutes, just snapping the connectors to the latch system and ensuring the seat was installed tightly. The shoulder straps adjust so easy, and allow me to adjust them every time my son gets in the seat…. (read more and buy it at Target.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 9/17/2012 – … Best of all this is so easy to use. The straps to connect to my car’s LATCH system are much easier than most. They just snap on and then you push the seat as tight as you can. You don’t have to pull on a strap to get it tight, it just tightens itself (think of how a regular seat belt just keeps getting tighter until you release it.)… The cover comes on and off to wash it pretty easily without taking the seat out of the car…. (read more and buy it at Walmart.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 5/23/2012 – The Symphony car seat costs a little more with SURELatch, but it’s definitely worth it! The Evenflo Triumph was my first choice and purchased in October for my child, however, found that it is very hard to install in any car using the LATCH system…. This seat can also serve as a booster as the child ages. A con for both seats is that both will need a rolled up towel to make it level when installing rear facing in a sedan backseat…. (read more and buy it at Diapers.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 1/7/2012 – I needed a car seat for that in between stage when my daughter grew out of her infant car seat but wasn’t at that 1 yr and 20 lbs mark yet to go forward facing in a 3-in-1 booster…. The installation took about 5 minutes. Even though it’s kind of heavy, who cares?!… It’s so comfortable….  (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
