"Disappointed with strap mechanisms.…"
I have twins and bought two of these car seats at great expense as we were told that they were the best rear-facing car seats. Although the seat itself is sturdy and is easy to fit, there is one major flaw in the build quality of this car seat. Shortly after purchase one of the seats belt straps started to fray due to catching in the mechanism. When the manufacturer were contacted they tried to put the blame onto us for pulling the strap towards us rather than straight. If this was the case, the belt would have been frayed on the opposite side. Finally the manufacturer agreed to provide a replacement belt. This did not fix the problem and the shop we bought the seat from gave us a replacement. The new seat belt does not pull tight with one side often being loose. This means that my son is able to pull his arms out of the belt fully. Our other chair also does the same but not quite so badly. This fault contradicts the safety reason for purchasing this seat. This design/technical fault severely lets this seat down and the manufacturer could learn a lot from maxi cosi in it's belt mechanism with which we never had any trouble.
