Does anyone know if this issue was ever resolved?  We have a Radian XTSL that we bought when they first came out with the higher rf limit in order to keep ds rf longer.  I tried a ff latch install when we had trouble getting the seat rf with a seat belt (until I could get to a tech to help with the rf seat belt install) and found the latch didn't lock or hold the seat tightly, it wiggled out with use.  It's possible that a latch install could be useful in the near future and I'm wondering if there is an option for correcting the latch problem.  I'm going to contact Diono and see what they have to say, but I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this issue?

We had the same problem and contacted sunshine kids (back in February) and they sent me a new latch strap free of charge.

I had the same problem (worked fine RF, but FF it would wiggle loose quickly) and they sent me a new strap, no charge.  The new strap has some kind of locking mechanism.  Haven't had a problem since!

Thanks so much for the replies.  This has been off my radar for a while, since we've been using a seatbelt install and don't move the car seat; I'm glad to know that the replacement straps seem to have solved the problem.  I'll be making a phone call this week.
