Just that really. No matter how taught I pull the arm straps, he's out of them in seconds. Generally turned round and grinning at me.

It cost £400 and was supposed to last until he's 4, and now a year later it looks like we're going to have to stop eating get another one.

Has anyone else experienced this problem with this car seat?

Check that the harness is sitting right on his shoulders. If they are to far down it gives the wriggle room to get out. Try moving it up one notch.

We have a Velcro thing that goes across the straps and my ds can't escape - not same car seat though. Can't remember where I got it - Amazon? You have to be really careful though as some devices sold for this alter the arrangement of the straps, which can reduce their effectiveness.

Buy a 5 point plus harness.
