Don't forget to order pool noodles!
on July 12, 2015
When My daughter outgrew her first car seat, my wife and I started to search for a convertible type that can be rear-facing and switched to forward facing when she gets a little older. With 771 reviews and 4.5 starts we thought the Alpha Omega Elite was a good choice. My first red flag was when I read the installation manual. It recommends to place a paper towel role or pool noodle under the chair so it will be in the correct position. I included a photo of the page... With paper towel role in place I went ahead and finished the installation. My second and final red flag; The LATCH system works good in securing the system form moving side to side, but the path to route the LATCH is at the very front of the seat, leaving the rear of the seat free to pivot up and down. I promptly returned the item.
