Watch how to install the Graco Extend2Fit convertible car seat in a front-facing position.
Children who meet the proper age and weight requirements should sit in a car seat that is in the front-facing position in order to remain safe. The Graco Extend2Fit car seat lists the weight of 22-65 pounds as the acceptable weight to ride in a front-facing position. It is best to have your car seat installation checked by a certified or trained installer. It is common for local police departments to have someone on staff who is trained in not only reviewing a car seat installation, but also performing the installation at no charge.
The Graco Extend2Fit convertible car seat includes an extension panel with four positions, allowing for up to five inches of additional leg room. This is a key feature when front facing, as there tends to be more open space in front of the child since passenger seats can be moved forward, allowing for more room. There are three recline positions on this car seat that can be used when riding in a front-facing position. The headrest adjusts to ten different positions. The seat cushions are machine-washable.
Overall, there are collectively really good reviews of the Graco Extend2Fit Convertible Car Seat. I have used the car seat in both the rear-facing and front-facing positions and am happy with the ease of installation and comfort of the seat cushion and headrest padding. The extension panel is the feature I like the most because it allows for my child’s feet to keep from dangling, which is key when your child is trying to sleep.
