I'm not impressed with the CARES.  We debated getting one for the 6yo but she's too tall.  Instead she just sat in the lap belt and the fit was just ok, not great.  She's 37 lbs.

What do you mean about your vehicle seats being at an angle?  I didn't have a problem with a Complete Air in a Jetta a couple months ago at a seat check.

What is your budget? If a Britax Marathon 70 or Roundabout 55 is doable, I'd go with one if them. They take up little room RF and tether RF.

What about the Cosco Scenera or OnSide Air?  Those are lightweight and would be more travel-friendly than the Triumph.

The Radian actually works very well RF in the Focus.  I'd give that a try.  If nothing else you can put the Radian in her car and the Diplomat in yours.

You don't need to use locking clips :)  Your seat belts lock at the retractor, so to lock you just pull the belt all the way out and let it click back in.

Actually only a few seats require a tether.  They are always recommended but only a couple require it (like the Frontier over 50 lbs, etc).
