Yup, twisting the female end is what finally worked for us too. What year is your Subie? Ours is a '95.

ps--I'm Megan too :
Cool! I drive a 96 Outback. I've been thinking about moving to a van (once I run out back and shake that money tree I'm growin' ) but yesterday I put three carseats in my back seat! Two forward facing Graco Cargo carseats (with harnesses, installed in the outboard positions) and a Roundabout in the middle. I got them all in rock-solid!!

Also, your 95 probably does have a place for a rear facing (check the carseat manual for suggestions) AND forward facing tether. Read the owners manual and then order the $20 kit from Subaru. The tethering helps with the big Britaxes.

I didn't know that!

Never, ever rent a carseat.


What sort of seat? If you are nervous about your convertible, a Cosco Scenera is cheap, light and easy to install in most cars.

Oh you have a BV? Those seats are EASY to install!
