Where can i get more strap covers? We lost them and the straps are digging into my child’s neck. I want to make sure we get yours so they are safe.
What are our customers saying?
I bought this so i didn’t have to transfer car seats weekly when i have my 2yo niece and also because i have a small vehicle and hated having a massive car seat taking up room in the back.
The cup holder being optional is so neat, i don’t know that it saves extra room having it slid in but the placement of them is a lot less wide than the previous seat i had. Its not as hard for her to reach her drinks now, i don’t know if this is just a specific issue for my tiny girl, but a definite plus for us.
The seat as a whole looks to be more comfortable for her to be in.
* installation literally takes minutes! I can’t begin to describe how grateful i am for the anchor straps that simply click in place. I loooathe having to fight with the hook kind to get them on/off. These you just have to push against the anchor, listen for the click, and pull to adjust your straps. Then to remove the seat all you have to do is push a button to release them! The straps are also soo much easier to grip in order to tighten. The car seat feels more secure and doesn’t budge as much as others i’ve used. The chest straps don’t seem to loosen and need adjusted as much when taking the seat in and out which is a big plus. The chest clip snaps together differently than i’ve saw before so she’s not able to push in the button and unclip herself like she did with the last seat!
If you’re like me and spend 8 years reading reviews before making the purchase, do yourself a favor and go ahead and buy this!
I bought two different car seats when they were on pre black friday sales. I decided on the graco slim fit because it is a lot slimmer and i can fit two baby seats with room for a 10-12 year old in the middle of my (sedan) car.
It’s plush and my granddaughter looks much more comfortable when she falls asleep in it.
I do like the features of the plush seat and head rest and how the back can adjust up and down. The straps by the shoulders have a nice cover so they don’t cut into her neck (i had to buy ones for her back facing car seat)
my daughter “put it together” under 10 minutes as she had purchased one for her car and it looked complicated – it would have taken me a lot longer! It is color coded for where to put the straps to secure the seat which i thought was a great idea.
We’ve enjoyed this car seat for a year and a half now. The straps have a quick release button in the seat part that can be easily tucked away. The shoulder straps can easily be raised up along with the head side protections, even with the child strapped into the seat so it can fit properly. The extra padding can be removed for washing or if your child no longer needs it. I personally keep the extra padding in, we spend a lot of time in the car visiting family and taking big sister here and there. We live kind of out of town, so takes us 10-15 minutes to get anywhere one way. That can be a lot of pressure on a bum, even with a diaper. I also recline the actual seat so when little one falls asleep, her head isn’t so far forward. She’s big enough that i’m able to do this. Once you know which hole the car seatbelt goes through in the back, it’s an easy install and transfer to another car. We only use the tether anchor that hooks onto the back of the seat, not the ones that go between the actual car seat cushions. But nice that they are there if we need them. A fun little feature is there’s a slot on the back of the child’s car seat that holds the manual. Because we all forget in time how to install or adjust the seat.
I love this seat! It’s so easy to instal, and adjust for my little one. She is 3 and still likes to rear face. We will eventually turn her around this next year as she grows out of the height or weight limit of rear facing. This seat is very slim, so it’s easy to install other seats around it if necessary. I also love the feature of how easy it is to take of some of the padding to wash it. I don’t even have to uninstall the seat, the cover snaps on and off. My 3 year old had an accident, and the bottom part snaps off and on! So brilliant! I definitely recommend getting this seat.
Purchased this for my daughter who will be 2 in december after her father started letting her ride in her 4 yo brother’s carseat much like this one. He felt she had outgrown her infant seat but tension started to erupt as she began claiming her brother’s seat. She happily, and immediately, claimed this one upon taking it out of the box. I’ve had no complaint from her riding rear facing. I love the slimmer dimensions than her brother’s, making it so much easier to remove and reinstall using the latch system. I even regularly take the whole seat out to bring the napping baby inside and she stays asleep for the duration of her nap. Very satisfied with this purchase.
I bought this for my daughter when she was around 8 months because she was getting too big for her infant carrier. My son has the 4in1 forever and i thought i’d get her the same but bought this on a whim and am sooo glad i did! It’s seems really comfy, has a lot of room, and i love how slim it is! She loves it and i’m planning to buy another one for my husbands car!
Perfect fit in back seat of a jeep not big and bulky. Can fit 3 kids back there no problem unlike with other car seats. Very comfortable! Worth every penny
Its seems to have enough leg room. I like the reclining effect for baby to feel comfortable. I did have to push the passenger’s seat forward so it can fit a bit better. I have a honda cvr. Its no big deal. But it does fit like like the infant car seat i had. I would recommend definitely especially if you have bigger babies. The release was a bit difficult to find. Its located inside the strap. Push down and it will release the straps to loosening up to your babies needs. I’m happy with the purchase thus far.
Perfect car seat for my little one! Easy to install in the car and just a perfect fit when you have more than one car seat to fit in the car.
Easy to install. Compact but has all safety features of a larger one. Definitely happy with my purchase and would purchase it again if i needed another one. I love the cup holders that open and close! Easy to clean too!
We had a lot of difficulty adjusting the straps and tightening the buckles. Still can’t get the straps or the buckles tightened exactly how we want them but its tightened down enough. Still takes up a ton of room when rear facing. I need to figure out what my granddaughters old model # was as that one was really a slim design and allowed the person in front to not have to push their seat all the way forward in order to fit the rear facing car seat in behind it.
We got this carseat to fit better in a truck. I don’t particularly like it rear facing, the extend-to-fit carseat from graco is much more comfy for infants and rear facing. Forward facing it’s great. Nice and slender. Installs easily though it’s slender design does make it a little harder to get snug without anchor attachments. Removable cup holders are nice (and very easy to put on and off)
I have three at three and under to fit in a third row of my van. I bought a diono for my three year old and was not happy with how difficult it was to install so that it doesn’t move around. I cannot install the diono rear facing so that it wouldn’t budge, and so i bought two of these for my 18 month old twins who’ve outgrown their baby carseats.
Installation was easy and the level guage is very helpful. My kids seem comfy in these, and they just fit three across with one in the middle row middle seat of the honda odyssey. I was a little irritated that there is a width requirement for latch clips and mine seem to just barely be wide enough in that middle seat. The cupholder is a nice feature because you can either open or close them. My kids are too little to care now, but i’m sure they will appreciate later on.
I got these on prime day sale and that was the icing on the cake for me.
I took off one star because the harness buckle is kind of weird to undo, it’s hard to describe but the buckle isn’t standard from other carseats i’ve had and i have to work harder to unclip it.
Easy to install, nice feature to hold the harnesses while transporting the carseat, no tripping on the harness latches, because they clip under where the child’s feet go. The manual can be stored in the back of the carseat for future reference. It’s easy to adjust the buckle that attaches between the legs. It’s lighter weight incomparison to the model with the extended foot rest board.
I was expecting a bit more slimmer but otherwise pretty good seat other than the time it takes to install if you need to install front facing as you need to move the belt from front to back with removing a screw.
Put in a jeep wrangler. Fits well and works as described. Will consider buying another one.
I like graco products and i’m fine with this one, but the headpiece… Rattles! When baby is not in the seat and you’re just driving and hit a bump or are going down a rough road, it is so loose that it’s noisy.
Difficult to get a good install and a good fit.
I looked at a million reviews of car seats for my 13 month old. I decided to go with graco brand bc they seem to check most of the boxes. I really wanted the 4ever dxl (or whatever it’s called), but i didn’t have the money and had to buy one like yesterday. I will list the pros and cons of what i’ve found since i purchased this one.
Pros: most importantly, this model is among the car seats on the safety list. It’s very sturdy and great quality. The cushion is very soft and comfy. It’s very easy to install (husband and i watched a video and installed in less than 10 minutes.) i love you can adjust the harness with the headrest. With captain chairs and a single car seat, the width is not a problem, but it would help a little if i did while still being spacious and comfy for my baby. I love it has 2 cup holders that will hold my baby’s favorite sippy cup that’s pretty wide. (i saw reviews of another car seat that had square cup holders that wouldn’t hold normal sized cups.) i love this one converts to a booster seat so i don’t have to purchase a new one for a few years.
Cons: it only has 2 recline settings in rear facing position, and my baby seems to sit higher than i’d prefer especially when sleeping, though he doesn’t seem too uncomfortable. My baby is 31” long, and his feet are already touching the seat. I’m not sure how he’s supposed to be rear facing until 40” or 2 years old. I almost bought the extended rear facing seat, but it didn’t convert to a booster so i went with this one. Now, i wish i had. I have captain chairs in my small suv (buick enclave), and it doesn’t sit level, which is probably an issue with other brands as well. Even the booklet tells you to put a towel under it which makes me extremely uncomfortable. Also, we still have to keep our passenger seat pushed up a little bc it’s too wide. My husband is 6’ 3” so it’s more of a problem to him than me at 5 ft.
Overall, i really like this car seat and the pros outweigh the cons by far.
I use this carseat for my great-granddaughter and it seems to be a little too small for her. It fits well over her shoulders, but the safety items to be tucked in from the bottom are too tight. I can’t seem to figure out how to loosen them. Otherwise, she is comfortable with just the shoulder straps so i hope that is enough.
