Yep it's the buckling that's the pain and why we kept him in the radian at this point. Well that and the fact that it fit! I wish he could stay in it longer. At this point I would be comfortable with him in a booster otherwise.
I was wondering about puzzling them together. My husband is the one who installs them (I have zero patience for it-and we get them checked) so I am actually kind of clueless about the fits. I just do the research.
My other boys are 5 years old and just about 3 years old. I would put my (45lb? ) 5yo boy in a booster if it puzzled in a better way. My almost 3 year old just went forward facing in his radian. We have a britax marathon we could potentially use again for him. We actually had that rear-facing in the middle and it fit *better* than the radian due to the puzzling, but he surpassed the rear-facing weight limit and then it wouldn't fit ffing. Maybe it would with the booster? I think my dh would die if I bought another carseat.
What do all the 3-across people do when the kids grow into a booster?
Thanks for your response. Also- do you happen to know if it's OK if his shoulders are at or very slightly above the top slot, if his ears are well below the top of the shell? I thought the head height trumped the other factors, but I'm not sure. He's 52 in. (limit 53 per manual). I tried to call Radian but haven't reached yet.
check your manual, but it used to be that Radian was one of the few seats that you could go have the shoulders over the top slot and still use it, as long as the ears are below the top of the shell...not sure if that has changed since I bought my first one.....
In mine, it's in the back of the manual where it talks about proper harness height and adjusting the harness height.
