Radian or Britax...help! - Page 3

Well, I'm definitely not following that rule when I'm driving or I'd never be able to reach the peddles comfortably...

When you say one more click, do you mean on the seat?  Sorry for sounding ignorant.

Are you quite petite?   You should look into pedal extenders if the problem is that bad, because sitting closer than 10" to the airbag is really not safe.  

 

Yes...click up the seatback as upright as you can tolerate it :-)

Would we be better off just disabling the air bags?

TMama, I think Maezde means "clicking" the driver's seat so it is less reclined and more upright.  Generally, the more upright the seat is, the farther back on the track it can sit without interfering with rear-facing carseats.

 

Sosurreal, you cannot legally disable front passenger airbags in a sedan or SUV or minivan or anything but a two-seater truck.

One more question  now that we have DS1 FF in the Radian.  His straps are above his shoulders and on the highest setting.  The setting lower than that one would be slightly behind him.  The problem is the straps are uncomfortable for him and digging into his neck because they are high...i know I can put the cover things on them but he is still complaining since they aren't flush against his body...

 

Also, with the infant support pillow on DS2's Radian...he was still slumped when he slept...oh well...

 

DS1 is mad about his Radian being lower and he "can't see the ground now" shrug.gif  His Marathon was higher and he's not happy...

It sounds like it's just an adjustment phase.  I'd acknowledge his annoyance, put the strap covers on him, and otherwise not encourage the complaints unless he's actually, genuinely in pain, which is unlikely.
