We normally use a Britax Decathlon, but sometimes travel with a Cosco Scenera (especially to my sister's house, because it is narrow enough to fit between her twins' seats).
This last trip that we took, he figured out how to do the chest clip on the Scenera. We've tried the velcro deterrent method, to no avail. I've tried pulling over every time he does it, no dice. Finally someone had to sit in the back with him and keep him from doing it, while he screamed about it. We were on a highway with NO shoulders and no exits for 20 miles at a time---I couldn't pull over.
I'm going to my sister's house again in a few weeks, and need to use this seat (or rent a car, $$$). Would it be unsafe to buy an extra Britax chest clip and install it on this seat? He can't get that one undone. I know that's not the clip it was tested with, yadda yadda yadda, but logically, doesn't it seem like it should still be a safe seat?
Just looking for an easy solution, I guess. What else have people tried that worked?
(quick rant: this clip is WAY too easy to open! He even managed to open it by accident when he was just a wee one---that should never happen!)
