Graco SnugRide Infant Car Seat Base Review

If you have more than one car, it's so convenient having more than one car seat base. This extra SnugRide Infant Car Seat Base lets your SnugRide Infant Car Seat easily and quickly click in to Dad's or Grandma's vehicle, so you can keep your other base permanently installed in Mom's car. This way, Baby gets more than one chauffer, and you get hassle-free infant transit.

Great Seat--Hints on How to Install
I got the Graco Snugride in Glen Plaid as a baby gift and bought two silver bases to go with it--one for my car (which doesn't have latch) and one for my husband's car (which has latch). His was very easy to install. I had a shoulder belt system in my car and used that with my base. Everything seemed fine, but it seemed as if every time I went over a bump, the carseat would become loose. I couldn't understand, because my seatbelt locks in place. Someone reminded me that the base comes with a locking clip. (If you look, the directions on how to install it are actually in the owner's manual for the car seat (and not in the base's manual)--mine was on page 25). This was the key! Now my base is completely snug.

Also, for people who have trouble with the base tilting--it takes a bit of strength, but if you put your knee in the middle of the base while you thread/tighten the seatbelt, it will stay down--of course, this was a challenge with my bony knees! (I learned from a carseat checkpoint, in order to get the base as snug as possible, don't allow the seatbelt to lock until you have it buckled and the lap part of the belt is snug. Then you can lock the belt and allow it to tighten. You can get it to tighten by pulling down on the shoulder belt part).

This is a very snug seat/base, and my son seems to do very well in it. If you need help, go to a childseat inspection checkpoint (you can go to the NHTSA--National Highway Traffic Safety Administration--site and click on Child Seat Inspections. You can search by zipcode or state).

Hope this information helps!
