I know just what you mean about the seatbelt thing, NN; you have it pulled just as tight as you can get it, which is just right, and then as a part of the locking mechanism, it seems to release just a click or two, which is just a click or two too much to keep the tight install.  Stbx found a car seat clinic and had it installed with the seatbelt there; it's a million times more secure, although it seems to still have a bit more give (especially front to back movement...
Can anyone weigh in on this?  I am looking over an application for the Employment Related Daycare Program (which is currently wait-listed indefinitely, anyway), and under the question asking if immunization records are up to date, it says, "You must agree to meet state immunization guidelines to get child care benefits."   Does anyone know if that's true?  And/or legal?  Or are they just being obtuse about signing a form, whether for exemption or participation, or am...
Thanks all.  Not to take this into Parents as Partners territory, but yes, he's missing a lot of things.  I'm hoping to have a chance to check things out today, and I really appreciate all the feedback (and wish I was in Michigan right now, I'd love a real, live second opinion so I wasn't the big, bad whatever).  I didn't realize that latch anchors could be anywhere but the fold in the seat--they definitely are in the truck.  If I can wrangle a Radian with the belt...
That's what I'm thinking, too.  It's been two months and I've tried to offer information, but I've been waiting for him to take some initiative/choose to deal with it like a responsible adult/parent.  Maybe the next time he has ds in the car, I can fool around with the Nautilus.  I suggested the Nautilus to him for the same reasons you list.   Are there other good online resources aside from/in addition to car-seat.org?  Maybe if I can get him to look at some online...
I believe it's been locked at the retractor the times I've checked, and I think it's just been a loose install, not sure; but the Nautilus comes with lock offs, right? or a locking clip could be used instead of locking the belt?  I've pointed those things out.  I don't know that he's experimented with the angles of recline on the seat or in the truck, either, and I was wondering if that might have to do with it.  The seat appears to be flush against the truck seat, but I...
Thanks!  It's a 2006 Mazda, and I found the tether anchor for it.  I'm really bothered by how easily I can wiggle the seat loose.  I've reiterated the 1" rule a few times.  In the car (2007 Nissan Versa), I've had a Graco Snugride, a Boulevard, and now the Radian, and when they've been installed, there's been little or no wiggle room, especially unless I'm using my whole body to try to shift those seats.  This Nautilus slides around so easily, I can't see how it could...
I sure seem to be posting here a lot, lately. I would really appreciate some feedback on an issue with a Nautilus. Actually, it's probably more of an issue with stbx... He drives a regular cab truck and got a Nautilus for ds to ride in.  Like I said, I think it's more to do with people than seats, but he hasn't managed to install it in a way that seems "correct" to me.  When he has it installed the way he thinks is correct and I test it, with one hand I can easily wiggle...
Many thanks (one locking mechanism)!
If I use a locking clip, I don't lock the seatbelt, right?  I have a Radian xtsl rf in the middle back of a 2007 Nissan Versa 5 door (belts lock at retractor), and I just got an angle adjuster and installed it.  The best install I've been able to get with the Radian rf always uses the locking clip, last time I had a tech help, and the belt was locked, as well as the locking clip applied--which is correct?  Can't find anything in the Radian manual to address it.
Thank you!  That's just what I needed.  We don't even have any lap only belts, but something about the way I was reading the instructions for the RSTV had me thinking that the tether was only to be used with a lap belt, and not with lap/shoulder.  Which really doesn't make any sense; sometimes I'm just too full of details and concerns and wanting to make sure I've got it right to the letter, and I over think, or forget to think critically.   Nautilus will now be...
