I think the other annoying thing about that seat is that no matter how tightly I installed it it always needed to be readjusted so that the angle was correct. That seat light to have a rubber bottom like the Britax seats (and harness comfort pads and head wings and multiple reclines... Hey, I just designed at $200 seat!)

We actually bought a luggage strap at Wal-Mart and looped it through the FF belt path to attach the car seat to the stroller. I just left the luggage strap looped in that belt path the duration of our trip. I didn't even bother unwrapping the LATCH strap or top tether since I figured it would be less complicated to just do seat belt install the entire time. This is sorry of ironic because all my "hard" install seats I install with seat belts and the Click Tight seats I've installed using LATCH.

Next time I've got to figure out how to take less. And do pre-check.

Sounds like you're a pro already!

My biggest gripe with the lightweight seats are the "tipping" and constantly having to readjust the seatbelt as well. I hate that.

The uneven straps have been an issue with Dorel seats for many many years. Drives me nuts.

I find the Evenflo harness designed a bit better, but not by much.
