We need to fit 3 across our Tarago and I'm trying to work out what will pizzle together the best. It needs to be 1 booster and 2 5pt harnesses. The twins are currently in BabyLove Preludes which are quite narrow but the height of them next to DS2's InfaSecure booster makes it impossible to get your hand between them todo up the seatbelt. I'm happy to try and combination and replacing any of the seats.

SnS Compaq (new one ) is the only seat that sat high enough to get our hands down to do up booster seats. They hav really tall height markers and will suit to approx 120 cm in height.

Just wondering if a Hi-Liner would be easier to do up than the InfaSecure? It looks like the Hi-Liner has very short armrests compared to the Infa and that's the bit that is making it difficult to get my hand down to do up the seat...

I've been to Baby Bunting and they just told me to talk to their carseat installation guy who's only suggestion was a seatbelt extender. When I queried it changing the triangulation of the belt on the child's body he just said that if it does that we won't be able to use it. Big thumbs up for helpfulness there  huh.gif

Just wanted to update that we've ended up going for the new Maxi Rider easy adjust AHR. It fits nicely and the way it puzzles with the preludes means there is enough room to get our hand down to do up the seatbelt. But we've put the 4yo in it in harness mode because there is still LOADS of room left which I was very impressed by as he's 90th percentile for height. There's at least 15-20cms between his shoulders and the switch to seatbelt marker.
