I am a nanny and have been a nanny for 16 years and I also have a 4 1/2 year old girl. I install and remove car seats from my car very often and have been doing it for a longer than most. This car seat might be heavy, but it is incredibly easy to install and comes with all the things to make sure you are installing it as safe as you can! Have been seen the bones of this thing! Wow! Removal is a bit more tricky due to fitting 3 of these across in my smallish wagon. Note: these are the only car seats that fit 3 across in my car! So with the limited space it is a bit tough to take out a specific car seats. Since I have a range of ages in the car. I have to unbuckle two car seats due to buckles being towards the center of the car. To get to specific seats. When you have three car seats together it is difficult to stick your hand behind and in between seats due to the design of the sides... there isn't much room for my small hands to fit between car seats to get to the seat belt buckles to unhook. I cut my knuckles every time! With that being said! I still think these are the best car seats! If I didn't need to have 3 car seats in my car (all next to each other) installation and removal would be a breeze! I can't forget about Talking about washing. Washing is also super easy... Ever have a kid throw up in your car? Have an accident? A diaper explosion? After a couple, I finally bought Diono's seat protector. That thing has saved me from pulling the whole car seat apart and out so many times! Through potty training, illnesses and baby butts I love the seat protector! If you don 't have a protector right away, taking the cover off and pulling the straps out is pretty self explanatory and easy as well as putting itback together. One last thing, traveling with this car seat on a plane! OMG! It fits in the seat like a glove and doesn't crowed anyone else! My kid also as a bonus stays seated perfectly because she knows while being in the seat that's what she is suppose to do!

I bought this seat thinking it would be able to take my child from her last 5 pt car seat all the way to 57" tall and ready to move to a seatbelt. As a 5 pt car seat for younger children it is definitely a 5 star seat. However, Diono needs to be a bit more realistic when advertising it as a seat for children up to 57" and up to 120 lbs. Unless your child is built like an Oompha Loompha (in which case he wouldn't fit in the narrow frame) he has no hopes of using this seat until he nears the height or weight maximum. I had my older child, and several of her friends, all between 52" and 56" try to sit in the seat and there was no way they could get their shoulders underneath the headrest to lean back. Unless you were very thin, had an extremely short torso, and VERY long legs, you could not sit in this seat once you were over 51" tall (6 inches short of the recommended height for seatbelt only... And 6" short of what Diono advertises this seat can be used for). My older daughter has a BMI that places her in the 15th percentile (shaped like a model, tall and thin, has long legs, and is just shy of 54") she cannot lean back because, even when the headrest is raised to the highest point, the shoulders of the headrest are too low. I am really regretting this purchase for my Kindergartner. She is already over 48" and only has a few inches more to grow before she can no longer use as a 5 pt and wouldn't fit under the shoulders of the head rest to use as a booster. Give us a break, Diono... Advertise it as it should be used... A 5 pt and a booster mode realistically up to maybe 52" tall.

          This is my 2nd Radian RXT. The 1st one is occupied by my 2 year old, who absolutely loves his seat. My favorite thing about these seats is that I can fit 3 of them in a row in the back seat...in our Explorer! (The middle seat in the Explorer was not thought out to be able to hold car seats, in my opinion.)

          After buying several car seats, we've finally found this one to be our favorite. It is slender, and not nearly as bulky as our other carseats, which made a big difference in our smaller-size SUV. Also, we have two babies so we needed 2. This one seemed to accommodate our needs most closely without compromising safety. Highly recommend!!!

          Definitely a good quality car seat. I had originally bought my son a Graco car seat at birth but he hasn't been a fan of it (he's now 14 months). I recently decided to upgrade his seat to something more comfortable and safe and after reading reviews on the Diono Radian RXT I knew I couldn't go wrong. It's completely steel framed and has numerous other safety features. The fabric is very soft and the seat has memory foam if I'm not mistaken. I may end up buying one for myself later down the line :P I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to purchase a car seat for their child. I believe it supports newborns to 120 pound capacity.

          Comments about Diono Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat - Shadow:

          I purchased two (2) of the Radian RXT's approximately 3 years ago when both my children were still in the 5 point harness. I chose this model because it is advertised to last you through until booster seat age. This car seat was EXCELLENT when used as a car seat with the five point harness and well suited to babies and children 12 months to 4 years old.

          Once I removed the 5 point harness and converted (BOTH) my car seats to booster seats, I encountered the following problems:
          1) the headrest does NOT extend high enough for a 6 year old (40 pounds) to fit in.
          2) once the head rests on BOTH the booster seats were adjusted to the right height, they fall down and I have to fix them every single time I buckle my kids into their boosters.
          3) My kinds complain that they are uncomfortable all the time, due to the head rest dropping bellow their shoulders.

          They are an absolute nightmare, and very unsafe once the headrest falls during long drives and it ends up behind my kids shoulders.

          I did call customer service, however they suggested tightening the bolts behind the head rests, this did not work. They still fall.

          I am now looking to replace them urgently.

          These seats are great. Three fit across a Subaru Outback. We're traveled on planes with them and they are easy to use to. We've had kids a young as 6 months (rear facing) up through school age kids in them. Love them!
