Best Convertible Carseats for Extended Rear-Facing: the definitive guide for savvy shoppers!

ERF - Liam with phone and csb logoIf you’re in the market for a convertible carseat that will allow you to keep your child rear-facing for “as long as possible” – you’re in the right place! This guide will help you navigate many of the most popular options currently available in the U.S. market and help you to identify which seat(s) may in fact allow your child to stay rear-facing for as long as possible.

First, let’s define the term “Extended Rear-Facing” because that term is often thrown around loosely and to my knowledge there isn’t a general consensus in the Child Passenger Safety field of what that term means exactly. In its most basic sense, Extended Rear-Facing can be defined as use of a carseat in the rear-facing position beyond the bare minimums generally established and accepted by carseat manufacturers for forward-facing usage. Since many (but not all) convertible and combination carseats still allow toddlers as little as 12 months and 20/22 lbs. to use the seat forward-facing – you could define Extended Rear-Facing as anything beyond 12 months and 20/22 lbs.

ERF-foonf-side-viewHowever, that’s not what most parents and advocates think of when they hear the term. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends waiting until at least age 2 to turn a child forward while NHTSA and the CPS Technician Certification Curriculum define “Best Practice” as rear-facing to the limits of the carseat.

For the purposes of this guide, we will focus our attention on the convertible seats that have proven themselves to last longer than most of the seats on the market today, specifically in the rear-facing position. For the record, this isn’t meant to be an all-inclusive list so there are probably a few good ERF seats that weren’t included simply because I didn’t have access to them during the project period.

Convertible seat recommendations have been sorted into two groups. The first group is a list of seats that are most likely to be outgrown by weight (at 40 lbs.) rather than by height. The second group is a list of seats with very high weight limits that are more likely to be outgrown by height. It’s up to you to try to figure out which of those two categories will accommodate your child in the rear-facing position for as long as possible.

CDC growth chart boysIf you already have your child’s stats from a recent visit to the doctor – great. If not, use the links below to the CDC Growth Charts and plot your child’s height and weight on the graph.

Boys under 2 years oldBoys over 2 years old
Girls under 2 years oldGirls over 2 years old

Keep in mind that just because a baby might be 20 lbs. at 5 months old doesn’t mean he or she will be 40 lbs. by age 2. A baby’s weight gain almost always slows down – usually by 9-12 months old as they become more mobile. However, if mom is 5’9″ and dad is 6’3″ and built like a linebacker then it’s reasonable to assume that this child’s growth pattern may continue to be way above average.

  • If your child is above the 75th percentile for height but average or below average in weight then you want to look at convertible seats in the first group because these seats aren’t likely to be outgrown by height before your child reaches the maximum rear-facing weight limit of 40 lbs. The seats in this group are also a good choice for children who have a very long torso (for example: wear pants in 12 months size but need onesies that are 18 or 24 month size).
  • If your child is above the 75th percentile for weight but average or below average in height then you might want to focus on the seats in the second group that are rated beyond 40 lbs. in the rear-facing position. 
  • If your child’s weight and height are average, slightly above average or below average, and your child doesn’t have a very long torso, then ANY of the seats on this list will last your child a very long time in the rear-facing position and you should make your decision based on all the other factors.

In all the pictures below, my beautiful, gracious and very accommodating model is 40″ tall and 34 lbs. at 4 years old. She is average (around 50th percentile) in both height and weight for a 4-year-old.

*Please note: most of the pictures purposely depict misuse because I was attempting to show how much growing room she still had height-wise. In cases where the carseat had an adjustable head rest, I raised it to its maximum height to show how much growing room there could be for a taller child. The proper placement of harness straps on a rear-facing carseat is to have the straps coming from a point that is “at” or “slightly below” the child’s shoulder level.

Convertible seats that your child won’t outgrow by height before reaching the 40 lbs. RF weight limit:

Britax ClickTight Convertibles (Marathon CT, Boulevard CT & Advocate CT)

These new CT convertibles from Britax are so tall that there is no way any child could ever outgrow them by height before reaching the 40 lbs. RF weight maximum! The Marathon CT doesn’t adjust as tall as the Boulevard CT (pictured) and Advocate CT models but is still tall enough to be a true extended rear-facing seat. We have a complete review of the Boulevard CT here

ERF - Britax Boulevard CT ERF - Britax Boulevard CT ERF - Britax Boulevard CT

  • Specs: Rear-facing 5-40 lbs.; Forward-facing 20-65 lbs., up to 49″ tall
  • Features: ClickTight installation system, no-rethread harness with 14 height positions, base with 7 recline positions, allows RF tethering, optional anti-rebound bar (ARB) will be available in early 2015
  • Pros: Easiest convertibles to install with seatbelt using CT system; CT system acts as a lockoff device; rebound management features via RF tether or ARB; various energy-absorbing features built in; doesn’t take up a lot of room front-to-back when installed RF; well padded; fits newborns well; Made in USA
  • Cons: Heavy; designed for seatbelt installations so it’s not especially LATCH-friendly; Marathon model not as tall as Boulevard and Advocate models but still tall enough to be a true ERF seat.

Chicco NextFit

Even tall, skinny kids will be able to rear-face in the NextFit until they reach the 40 lbs. weight limit. We have a complete review of the Chicco NextFit here.

ERF - Chicco NextFit ERF - Chicco NextFit ERF - Chicco NextFit

  • Specs: Rear-facing 5-40 lbs.; Forward-facing 20-65 lbs., up to 49″ tall
  • Features: SuperCinch LATCH system; no-rethread harness with 6 height positions; base with 9 recline positions; 2 position chest clip; lockoffs for seatbelt installation

  • Cons: Heavy and bulky; Can’t use SuperCinch to install with LATCH once child weighs more than 40 lbs. and is forward-facing

Evenflo SureRide (aka Titan 65)

This is the rare extended rear-facing seat available for less than $100! The model pictured is the Titan 65 model with SureSafe (has premium push-on lower anchor connectors) that is available exclusively at Walmart. Evenflo does limit the child’s height to 40″ tall which is very conservative because as you can see this 40″ tall child has a mile of growing room left above her head. Still, it’s a nice seat at a great price that will get most kids to age 3-4 rear-facing.

ERF - Evenflo SureRide/Titan 65 ERF - Evenflo SureRide/Titan 65 ERF - Evenflo SureRide/Titan 65

  • Specs: Rear-facing 5-40 lbs., 19-40″; Forward-facing 22-65 lbs., 28-54″

  • Cons: Large gap between harness slots 3 and 4; deep sides make loading and unloading RF child cumbersome; continuous harness; no lockoffs for seatbelt installation; 40″ standing height limit for rear-facing is limiting

Graco Size4Me/MySize/Headwise/Fit4Me

The Size4Me and its clones (MySize, Headwise and Fit4Me) are popular mid-price-point convertible seats that are impossible to outgrow by height before reaching the 40 lbs. weight limit. We have a complete review of the Graco Size4Me here.

ERF - Graco Size4Me ERF - Graco Size4Me ERF - Graco Size4Me

  • Specs: Rear-facing 4-40 lbs.; Forward-facing 20-65 lbs., 49″ or less
  • Features: No-rethread harnes with 8 height positions, separate lower LATCH anchor connector straps for both RF & FF belt paths, premium push-on LATCH connectors
  • Pros: Fits average-sized newborns well; no need to switch the LATCH connector strap from RF to FF belt paths because they give you a separate strap for each; can use LATCH rear-facing to the limit of 40 lbs.; doesn’t take up a lot of room front-to-back when installed RF
  • Cons: No lockoffs for seatbelt installation; sparsely padded; rated down to 4 lbs. but may not be a good fit for smaller newborns or preemies

Graco 4Ever All-in-One & Graco Milestone All-in-One

The Graco 4Ever All-in-One and Graco Milestone All-in-One are rear-facing/forward-facing/booster seats that work well in all modes. Both the 4Ever (pictured) and the Milestone are seats that just can’t be outgrown by height in the rear-facing position. Look how tall they are! We have a complete review of the Graco 4Ever here and a complete review of the Graco Milestone here.

ERF - Graco 4Ever  ERF - Graco 4Ever ERF - Graco 4Ever

  • Specs: Rear-facing 4-40 lbs., (Milestone starts at 5 lbs.); Forward-facing 20-65 lbs., 49″ or less

  • Cons: Heavy and bulky; No lockoffs for seatbelt installation

Maxi-Cosi Pria 70  (model without TinyFit)

Maxi-Cosi does limit the rear-facing child’s height to 40″ tall which is conservative because as you can see this 40″ tall child still has plenty of growing room left above her head. Still, it’s a nice seat with a ridiculous amount of padding that will get most kids to age 3-4 rear-facing. We have a full review of the Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 with TinyFit here.

ERF - Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 ERF - Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 ERF - Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 ERF - Maxi-Cosi Pria 70

Safety 1st Advance 70 Air +

Safety 1st does limit the rear-facing child’s height to 40″ tall which is very conservative because as you can see this 40″ tall child has a lot of growing room left above her head. Still, it’s a nice seat with a deep protective shell that will get most kids to age 3-4 rear-facing.

ERF - Safety 1st Advance SE 65 Air+ ERF - Safety 1st Advance SE 65 Air+ ERF - Safety 1st Advance SE 65 Air+

Convertible seats with RF weight limits beyond 40 lbs. (more likely to be outgrown by height than by weight):

Diono Radian RXT/R120/Olympia

These seats all have a rear-facing weight limit of 45 lbs. but they aren’t as tall as many of the models listed above. They are still very popular ERF seats and are especially well-suited for kids who are more heavy than tall. Olympia is part of the new Diono convertible line up but it has a 45 lbs. rear-facing weight limit like the Radian R120 (pictured) and Radian RXT. We have a complete review of the Radian RXT here.

ERF - Diono Radian R120 ERF - Diono Radian R120 ERF - Diono Radian R120

  • Specs: Rear-facing 5-45 lbs., up to 44″ tall and requires at least 1.5″ of shell above head; Forward-facing 20-80 lbs., less than 57″ tall
  • Features: 5 sets of harness slots, aluminum reinforced 12 position adjustable headrest, full steel frame, allows RF tethering, folds flat for travel or storage
  • Pros: Optional Angle Adjuster (not pictured, sold separately) allows the seat to be installed more upright for older kids who have complete head and neck control; rebound management features using RF tether; low sides make it convenient to load and unload child from seat; narrow
  • Cons: Heavy; takes up a lot of room front-to-back without optional Angle Adjuster; LATCH limit for rear-facing is 35 lbs.; lacks lockoff for seatbelt installation; finicky install in some vehicles, may not fit newborns well

Diono Rainier & Pacifica

These newest convertible models from Diono add depth for increased side-impact protect and are now rated to 50 lbs. rear-facing but they aren’t any taller than the previous Radian models. Like the Radian models, the Rainier and Pacifica are a great options for ERF, especially for kids who are more heavy than tall. We have a complete review of the Diono Rainier here.

Clek Foonf & Clek Fllo

The Foonf and similar Clek Fllo convertibles are highly regarded for their advanced safety features and high rear-facing weight limits. They aren’t as tall as many of the models listed above but since they are rated to 50 lbs. in the rear-facing position they are another great ERF option, especially for kids who are more heavy than tall. We have a complete review of the 2014 Clek Foonf here.

Carseat Check Events – The Pre-Check Meeting for CPS Technicians and Instructors

Carseat Check EventIt’s the day of the big carseat check event. The traffic cones are out, the updated recall lists have been printed and the LATCH Manuals are ready for action. But wait! Before those parents and caregivers begin to arrive – it’s time to gather your technicians for a quick briefing. This may be the most important 10 minutes of the whole event so don’t skip it. The pre-check meeting will outline expectations, procedures and protocols. In short, the pre-check meeting sets the tone for the entire event.

Each event coordinator has different expectations and pre-check meetings can vary widely. However, here is a general list of what I expect of the technicians who work events with me:

  • Always encourage best practice recommendations. If you don’t give the parents or caregivers the information then you’re essentially taking away their ability to make informed choices. However, don’t be judgmental and respect the parent or caregiver’s choices as long as they are legal.
  • Read the CR instruction manuals or look them up (online or DVD from Safety Belt Safe, USA)
  • Ask the parent “tell me what you know about this seat”. It’s a great place to start and they might teach you something you didn’t already know.
  • Look up every vehicle in the current edition of the LATCH Manual. It only takes 30 seconds and you’ll never know what you might find unless you actually look.
  • Teach parents how to secure the carseat with their vehicle seatbelt system even if the carseat is currently being installed with LATCH. It’s probably the only opportunity they’ll ever get to understand how the seatbelts in their vehicle lock for proper installation of a carseat.
  • Higher-weight harness seats – must check LATCH limits and note the info for parents.
  • Inform parents of the most appropriate “next step” for the child.
  • Don’t forget to ask “who else rides in this vehicle?”
  • Have parents do final install (or at least help).
  • Document EVERYTHING! Especially any “tough choices” made by parent/caregiver. Make sure you note in your paperwork that parent did final install, how the CR was secured in the vehicle and that education was provided.
  • No vehicle leaves without a second set of eyes (experienced) checking it over!

REMINDER – if the carseat or infant seat base has a lockoff device, you should use it for installations with seatbelt unless there is some compelling reason not to do so. Generally speaking, if using the lockoff – do NOT switch the retractor to locked (ALR) mode. Check carseat owner’s manual for details. Note: in these cases it is recommended that you show parents how the switchable retractor works anyway – in case their next carseat does not have a lockoff.

REMINDER – all vehicles made after 1996 have seatbelts that pre-crash lock in some way. Most lap/shoulder belts have switchable retractors but if you encounter a lap/shoulder belt in a vehicle made after 1996 that has an ELR retractor only (it doesn’t “switch”) then you probably have a locking latchplate. Locking latchplates aren’t always obvious and there are many different versions. Test the latchplate by buckling yourself in the seatbelt and pulling up on the lap belt portion of the belt. If it’s cinched and doesn’t loosen when you pull up on it – you have a locking latchplate.

Carseat Check Road SignThere are other protocols in place regarding CR replacement, technician to vehicle ratios, verification of installs for tech recertification, etc., but those vary from check to check depending on the circumstances.  Safe Kids coalitions have specific protocols that must be followed at all events but for those CPS programs (like mine), that are not affiliated with Safe Kids - it’s really up to the person in charge to make sure that the necessary resources are available and the CPS Techs staffing the event are all on the same page.

As you can see the shape of the shell is different but overall the new ClickTight Boulevard isn’t wider than the current Boulevard G4 model.

Quick Comparison of G4, G4.1 and ClickTight Specs:

All Britax convertibles (G4, G4.1 and CT models) are rated from 5-40 lbs. rear-facing

G4 and G4.1 models are outgrown rear-facing by height once the child’s head is 1″ from the top of the shell (not the headwings)

All ClightTight models are outgrown rear-facing by height once the child’s head is 1″ from the top of the headwings (Note: Boulevard  CT and Advocate CT models are taller than the Marathon CT model)

All Britax convertibles (with the exception of Roundabout) are rated from 20-65 forward-facing and up to 49″ tall.

ClightTight models have taller top harness slots than G4 and G4.1 models.

Finally, an update to our earlier previews with a forward-facing ClickTight installation.  (Rear-facing install shown in our previews linked below)

Rear-Facing Space Comparison: Britax G4 Convertibles vs. New Britax ClickTight Convertibles

Today we wrapped up the 10th annual Kidz in Motion (KIM) Conference in beautiful, sunny, New Mexico. It was another great conference and a good time was had by all. While I was here I had the opportunity to do some comparison testing of the current G4 Britax convertible models and the brand new Britax ClickTight convertibles that now available for pre-order. I was particularly interested in seeing how the seats compared side-by-side when installed rear-facing.

The vehicle used for this comparison was a 2014 Dodge Charger. Both the driver seat and the front passenger seat were set in the same positions at the same recline angle in order to accurately compare how much room each seat took up while rear-facing. On one side we installed the Britax Boulevard G4, on the other side we installed the new Britax Boulevard ClickTight. Both seats were installed with seatbelt.

Britax Blvd G4 and Blvd CT

Since the new ClickTight convertible models have 7 recline positions that can be used to achieve an appropriate recline, I took several different measurements so you can have an idea of how these new seats will fit rear-facing in backseats as compared with the Britax G4 convertible models which have a reputation for fitting exceptionally well in tight spaces.

Installed at a recline angle appropriate for a newborn or young baby with the headrest in a low height setting- the Boulevard ClickTight model took up approximately 3/4 of an inch (.75″) more room than the G4 model did. That’s still better (space wise) than most other convertibles currently on the market.

Britax Blvd CT and Blvd G4  Blvd ClickTight - recline angle closeup

Installed at a angle that was more upright (which would be consistent with the overall comfort of a toddler or older rear-facing child) with the headrest fully extended, the ClickTight model took up slightly less room than the G4 model did. And I do mean slightly – the difference was only 1/4 of an inch (.25″).

Britax Blvd CT - installed RF upright  Britax CT convertible - more upright install angle 

Installed at an angle that was bolt upright – suitable for older children who really don’t need any recline at all (basically it’s how they would be seated if they were forward-facing). The ClickTight model took up a whopping 3″ LESS space than the G4 model did! I was really shocked by that because as I stated earlier, the G4 convertible models are already known for being great seats for tight spaces. In reality, most parents probably won’t install the CT models this upright rear-facing because it is VERY upright. But I asked the Britax engineer how he felt about it and we both agreed that there is no such thing as “too upright” for older RF kids who don’t have any special healthcare needs. If your older kid is comfortable sitting at 20 degrees from vertical – Britax has no issue with that.

Britax Blvd CT - max upright position  Britax CT - angle indicator max upright

The new ClickTight models offer a wide range of recline angles and these options create more potential for finding a suitable recline angle and taking up less space in the vehicle. Children under 6 months old generally need more recline but as they grow and gain good head and neck control – the seat can be installed more upright. The recline angle indicator on these new models is excellent and pretty self-explanatory. For rear-facing, the angle indicator should be in the light blue zone for younger babies and in the dark blue zone for older babies, toddlers and preschool age kids who still ride rear-facing.

I took a few pictures of the Blvd ClickTight forward-facing as well. I just set the seat in the vehicle – I didn’t bother to install it because we were short on time but this will give everyone a general idea of what the Blvd CT looks like forward-facing.

Last but not least – here are a few measurement pics since the ones I took of the Advocate model at the launch event in NYC weren’t 100% accurate because those seats were still prototypes. The top harness slots on the Blvd CT and Advocate CT models measure about 19″ tall and the overall internal height with the headrest fully extended is about 29″. The Marathon CT is a little shorter both in terms of overall height and top harness slots.
