My husband, 15 month old daughter, and I were just in a roll over accident. We were on the way to my parents house when our tire with great tread blew as we were going 75 miles an hour on the interstate. We rolled 4 to 5 times and ended up on the other side of the interstate. This is the exact car seat we had and she was the one that came out with least injuries. She only had a few seat belt burns. We are buying this exact one again. It saved my daughter's life which I am so grateful for. I do not know about how easy it is to change to different stage. Have not needed to do that yet.

Had an Evenflo booster car seat for my 3 year old. Everytime we went somewhere I worried about my daughters safety since the seat was flimsy and not very padded. I decided to spend more dollars to get this Graco Booster seat and I am so satisfied. It is one heavy solid well padded and protected car seat. My child looks comfortable and secure. Also the colors are fantastic. Now I wont worry when we take long car trips I just feel more comfortable about this booster and glad I spent money on Graco.

I purchased this car seat when my daughter was one year old and she is now three and a half. She is still able to use the five point harness since the weight limit goes up to 65 pounds before the straps have to be removed. We just had a wreck that involved our car flipping twice and her door being crushed in. This car seat saved my daughter's life. The only mark on her was from the belts that held her in as the car flipped. I am purchasing this car seat again. (You should never use a car seat that has already been through a wreck because they are only made to hold up in one wreck.)

I have been doing lots of reviews on car seats and I was debating between this one and the Britax Frontier 85. Since this one was much cheaper, we decided to try it out. We loved the colors and it seemed very sturdy and safe. It was a little difficult to adjust the height of the straps, but that wasn't a huge deal. The main thing we didn't like was that it was extremely hard to buckle and unbuckle the straps. Also, my daughter seemed hunched over in it and when she fell asleep her head kept going foward so it didn't seem like it would be comfortable for long trips. We really wanted to like it, but we ended up returning it and buying the Britax. We love it and you definitely do get what you pay for.

If the answer is no, then can someone recommend a carseat for lapbelts (for use in an RV). Thanks!
by an anonymous customer 6/18/2012

  • A. Yes, it can be used with a lapbelt only, provided the lapbelt does not have Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR), or do not use with a lapbelt that has a motorized shoulder belt, or do not use if the lapbelt is forward of the seat crease. This car seat comes with a LATCH belt (I use this system). You can check your vehicle owner's manual for installation requirements.

  • A. This car seat can be used with some lapbelts. I think it cannot be used with a lapbelt with a retractor (and I believe that is true of all car seats.)

  • A. The car seat can be installed with a lap belt only. However when being used as a booster seat it can not be used with a lap belt only. I have installed this seat in several different vehicles with lap belt only as well as with a standard shoulder/lap combination. It installs easily, but you may need a metal locking clip to install it which comes with the seat. Hope that helps!

  • A. I know the harness weight is for 64 lbs and the carseat itself with lap belt goes to 100 lbs. I'm sorry but I did not pay attention to the height. My daughter is on the short side so height has never been a real issue for me.

  • A. The weight limit for the harness is 65 lbs. The manual says that it can be used for kids up to 52" tall, but that is a rough estimate. The top harness slot height is around 18" tall (which is very high.) Once your kid's shoulders get to 18" or they hit 65 lbs, you have to switch to booster mode. My 41" high daughter still has tons of room in the harness (about 3-4 inches until she hits the top slots.)

  • A. 20-65lbs. Almost every child will outgrow it by height before weight, though. This is not a downside to the Nautilus, though. It's true for most every car seat Forward Facing. Please really consider not using this at 20lbs, though. That's way, way to small to forward face. If you're partial to Graco and have a child 3 or under (and below 40lbs), consider the Graco MyRide.
