I know it sounds weird, but I need to buy a carseat that's easier for my preschooler to unbuckle.  With baby#3 on the way, I'm going to need to move my 5 yr old to the 3rd row.  However, she'll need to be able to unbuckle herself from her car seat to get out at school/carpool.   She's currently in a Britax Marathon and she simply cannot get out by herself.  She's an AVID rule-follower, so I know for a fact that she will not unbuckle when she's not supposed to.

 

I've been looking at the Britax Frontier, but I don't know how hard those are to unbuckle.  I would assume they might be as difficult as the marathon.

 

thoughts??

We have an Evenflo Maestro which neither of my DDs can unbuckle.  Both can, however, unbuckle our Radians.

My daughter sits in a harnessed Frontier in my car and has been able to buckle/tighten and unbuckle since she was an older 4/younger 5.  For some reason the straps are a breeze for her.

Same here ... my 4yo can fully buckle himself in the Radian, and fully unbuckle. However the Maestro, he can only do up the chest buckle, I need to do the lower buckle, and he cannot undo any of it.
