Graco® Contender™ 65 Convertible Car Seat - Brass

Graco's Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat, in Brass, holds a rear-facing infant from 5 to 40 lbs. (in baby car seat mode) and a forward-facing toddler in its five-point harness from 20 to 65 lbs. It easily grows with your child with the Simply Safe Adjust harness system, which automatically adjusts both the harness and headrest height. The included LATCH and easy-to-read level indicator offers you hassle-free installation. Contender 65 features a removable head and body support, machine-washable seat pad and two buckle positions to help keep your growing child snug and secure. This seat is Safe Seat Engineered which includes Side Impact Testing and features EPS foam, as do all Graco car seats. Some images below may depict an alternate color. Actual product is Brass.

Product Highlights

  • This Graco convertible car seat is designed to help protect your rear-facing infant from 5 to 40 lbs. (infant car seat) and your forward-facing toddler from 20 to 65 lbs.
  • This car seat comes with Graco's smart Simply Safe Adjust Harness System, one of mom's favorite features on convertible car seats. It's designed to make finding the proper fit for your child safe and simple. The system features a no-rethread harness that automatically adjusts. In fact, you can easily adjust the fit and height with just one hand.
  • Side-impact tested*
    *In addition to meeting or exceeding all applicable US safety standards, the Contender 65 car seat (like all Graco convertible car seats) has been side impact tested for occupant retention solely with the built-in five-point harness system
  • Engineered and crash tested to meet or exceed US standard FMVSS 213
  • One-hand, eight-position adjustable headrest easily adapts to your growing toddler's needs, helping to keep him or her secure in his or her travels
  • LATCH equipped, with an easy-to-read level indicator for hassle-free installation in the rear-facing position
  • EPS, energy-absorbing foam, for effective impact energy management
  • Five-point, front-adjust harness makes getting your little one in and out of the car seat a breeze
  • Conveniently placed cup holder keeps drinks within reach of little hands, so your tiny travel companion remains content
  • Removable head and body support keep baby comfy
  • The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children be rear-facing until age two or until they reach the maximum rear-facing height and weight rating for their seat and that the child stays harnessed as long as possible.
  • Brass fashion: Lightly textured gray and charcoal solids are highlighted with soft yellow accents, creating a sophisticated style that's more than ready for boys and girls on the go.
Infant Car Seat to Car Seat for Toddlers
The Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat goes from rear-facing baby car seat (for your child from 5 to 40 lbs.) to forward-facing toddler car seat (from 20 to 65 lbs.).
Easy-Adjust Convertible Car Seats
Like a number of Graco convertible car seats, the Contender 65 includes the Simply Safe Adjust Harness System, which allows you to adjust the harness and headrest height together, with no rethreading.
Car Seats with Smart Engineering
Graco car seats are designed to help keep your child safe on all of your journeys together. Safe Seat Engineering, EPS and more give parents peace of mind.
Easy-to-Use, Two-Position Recline
Rotate flip foot from front to back position to change recline when you're switching the convertible car seat from rear-facing to front-facing.

I bought the graco contender a couple weeks ago for my second child, he is growing so fast and I am expecting my third before he even turns 1. I figured it would be good to get him use to a new car seat. My other child is in an evenflo seat which he loves but it's bulky so I decided on the graco contender. It's not bulky has nice soft cushion to keep my baby comfortable has a cup holder but my son can't seem to reach his bottle in it yet (he is only 9 mo). It's easy to get him in and out of the car seat and was easy to install in the car. I only have one concern with the graco contender. It seems to slide alittle in the seat. I have it buckled in as tight as I can get it. And i can still wiggle it around. I will be taking it to the fire department to see if they can get it tighter and more secure other than that I think it's a good convertible car seat.

Loved this seat til today...

We bought this seat & have loved it! However I'm highly disappointed to learn there is not an option to order replacement straps for it! My daughter puked all over the place while in the car on Saturday. I have attempted to clean the straps per the owners manual guidelines, I can not get the vomit smell out! I called today to see what else I could do to clean the straps & my only option is to do what I've already done. The straps do not come out therefore can not be replaced. Not smart design when dealing with babies/kids!! So now, if I can't get the vomit smell out then I'm going to have to spend money to replace the seat :-( Overall we LOVE This seat & actually have 2 of them. My best friend also just bought one because we love ours. However this incident might change my mind if I have to replace the whole seat over some vomit on the straps!

    Comments about Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat - Brass:

    Just bought this carseat after the previous was in an accident. I have to say, I love this one and how reclined it is! My little ones head does go forward, she seems very comfortable in it, it was super easy to install and very easy to strap her in. And it fits perfectly in my ford focus! Unlike her other carseat I had to use a pool noodle, this one is just so perfect!

    Protected my son in serious accident

    By Shannen

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat - Brass:

    My 15 month old son and my father were in a head on collision. Both adults walked away without any serious injuries thanks to seatbelts, and my son walked away without a scratch thanks to his car seat! He is 30 lbs but was still able to be rear facing because of the Contender 65's 40lb RF weight limit. I just purchased 2 Extend2fit car seats so he can remain rear facing until 50 lbs now! Thank you, Graco, for making quality products at an affordable price! It gives me peace of mind now, more than ever, to know no matter who he is riding with he is properly restrained in a great car seat.

    Difficult to install and remove

    By KalaeGrandma

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat - Brass:

    Took a lot of force to tighten the belt to get the seat installed correctly. Removing the seat was even more difficult. Loosening the belt seemed impossible, but was finally accomplished by moving the belt millimeter by millimeter. It was a long process. The seat itself seems well-constructed and the children seem comfortable.

              Our 10 month old daughter loves her new seat! We got tired of using the infant car as she was starting to get heavy to carry. As soon as we put her in this Graco seat, she started kicking her feet and laughing. She sits up higher and can see out the windows now. The seat was very easy to install and the latch system is very easy to use. I feel like the belt is very easy to tighten and does not get too tight on our daughter's shoulders and chest.

                Its vary nice and seems roomy, the only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is the fact you can only change the way it tilts one way in rear facing and front facing not sure if this is a safety thing or just the way its made my son hates leaning back he wants to sit up but again you cant change the way it sits so 4 stars.
