The First Years

best RFing installation By
May 24, 2010
I highly recommend this seat. Of the 5+ different models of car seats I've installed, this is the easiest to install RFing, and is therefor the safest. The seat belt lock-offs ACTUALLY WORK. It has foam under the padding all around for impact protection. The child sits deep in the seat so I feel like there is really good side-protection. The material is cozy soft, but not thick or sweaty. You can adjust the shoulder height in 2 seconds. It comes with shoulder covers on the harness (washable) so you will not rub his/her neck with the harness when tightening. I used mine from 13-23 months old with the first child and 7mo to present (now 16 months) with the second child [and the now 32 month old still likes to sit in it RFing on occasion]. We have not turned it forward yet, so it is still RFing. We bought another of this same model for our 2nd vehicle b/c we love it so much.

Worked great for a month and stopped..for the price this product needs to be recall until they can figure out how it can last longer.

Great gate - no problems By
January 1, 2004
We have had two of these gates (one at the bottom and one at the top of the stairs) for almost two years without any problems. Very easy to install. No knobs have broken. It was difficult for my oldest to open at first - he was 3yrs when we installed them for our youngest. It took almost a year for him to be able to open it by himself, which was just fine with me. I took them down about two weeks ago - we're getting ready to sell them in our yard sale.

Works great! By
February 16, 2007
I love this gate. I bought it this week and have had NO trouble with setup or use. I'm only 5'2", so stepping over one of those other gates was not an option. Especially with carrying my groceries in, I didn't want to have trouble with it. My husband is a big, clumsy guy, and he had no trouble figuring it out, either. It has an added bonus, it keeps my dog from running to my front door whenever the doorbell rings! :)

I'd highly recommend this.
cheap plastic By

Nice design, but these gates use low quality plastic locking parts. After 4 months 3 of our 5 gates internal parts have failed allowing the gates to become loose and slide open. Don't have the receipts for warranty.
