Not my first rodeo but...
Reviewed in the United States on June 23, 2018
I have installed at least 7 different car seats through the years (4 children ages 20 months-14) and this is the first car seat I found extremely difficult to install. I figured since I was not a first timer at this that I would be able to do it as understandably car seats can be confusing, but despite reading the instruction and feeling confident, I was unable to adjust the first two straps I was supposed to loosen (lower anchors & crotch strap). They wouldn’t budge, at all. My fingers hurt, my hand hurt. 5 minutes in I said out loud, “nope, nope, nope,” and put back in box and out on front porch. It’s as heavy as everyone who commented said it is.
I was initially comforted by how solid it’s made but what’s the point if it’s so difficult to install. I had planned on leaving it in one vehicle as suggested by some, but in the event that my husband or someone else had to move it I know they’d be unable to do it. My current Graco is super easy to install and move from one vehicle to another.
I had high hopes for the pricepoint but the car seat seems to need WD-40.
