I used to have a Subaru Outback. I don't know if it's changed in the last few years, but it used to be 60lbs total (child's weight plus seat weight). Newer Subarus might have a higher weight limit,...

In a Chevy and most cars, the weight of the child seat + the child's weight cannot exceed 65lbs with a latch install. I don't know of any seats that weight 30lbs, so in all likelihood, yes, latch...

Yes, airbag off. And I doubt there are anchors, so seatbelt install. My biggest concern would be the lack of an upper tether anchor.

Yes, the ride safer travel vest passes the same tests and traditional car seats and boosters. The main thing it would be lacking is the hard shell, so side impact protection, which is not tested in...

He has outgrown the car seat since the straps are below his shoulders. If you absolutely cannot afford another seat, use the booster seat. The main concern is that he sit properly, so if you can...

IMO, no, only if he is not mature enough to sit properly in a booster. Most typically developing kids are capable of that around 6. There are no studies that show a harness is safer than a booster...

If he's 70lbs he's too heavy to ride in the nautilus harness (it goes to 65lbs). You need to stop using it RIGHT NOW as it is horribly unsafe to continue. Depending on the model of frontier, he may...

Your seat will be very recognizable as not being an EU seat simply by the fact that it has a chest clip. It would be very easy for any law enforcement officer who looks in the window of the vehicle...

Since Ireland is part of the EU, you have to use a car seat that is approved for use in the EU. You cannot bring your own and use it legally. Researched this recently because we are going to Europe...

Car seats contain toxins because they are required to meet flame retardant standards.  It sucks, but it's life.  My advice is to buy one now, wash the cover (NEVER the straps) with vinegar added to...

Most 6yos are mature enough for booster and they are a perfectly safe option at that point.  The only issue you might have is whether or not she can reach the buckle stalk with a radian installed...

If she is at the limit with clothes/shoes off, I'd see if you can get her under by taking off shoes, etc.  Otherwise, turn her until you can get the radian.

When we had an "old style" tv, we anchored the tv stand to the wall and then the tv to the stand (there were straps we bought that connected to the TV and then to the back of the stand).

The radian does not last long as a booster, so don't count on it for that.  It has a 50lb minimum weight for boostering, and most kids are too tall to use it as a booster by the time they meet the...

The shoulder belt should not easily disconnect.  I would see about having that repaired.  That would solve your problem.
