  • LOVE this car seat. We have one for our 2 year old that we received as a replacement from when I was rear ended in an accident. Because insurance paid for a new seat, we opted for this one…and I am so glad that we did! We could never afford this seat otherwise, but it is well worth the money. My toddler seems very comfortable in it, and I love that is reclines. It is SO easy to install. I was able to get it in and out of our car with no problem even while pregnant with #2. It is VERY heavy, but that is ok with me because I know it is sturdy. I absolutely LOVE this seat…and we need one for #2 that was born in March. To win this would be absolutely amazing and such a god send. Amazing product

  • Thank you for sharing such a informative blog with us…!
    Similar to an infant carseat design, the Smart Seat utilizes a unique, heavy-duty base that installs with either lower LATCH anchors or seatbelt. An extra base can also be purchased separately. The sturdy, built-in lockoff device is only used for seatbelt installations. The lower LATCH connectors are the hook-style but these aren’t the standard hook connectors that you normally see.
