radian questions...

What is the weight limit for the insert? I am thinking 30lbs( I know it's in the manual somewhere but not finding it).

When did you take it out? I can't decide if dd is more comfy with it or without it.

Also, the harness adjuster is fraying some. When does that become a concern? I can post pics soon, just right now. What would happen if it is too frayed? What would I or diono do (it is a sk btw)?

They get fuzzy but I've never seen them actually frayed. Doesn't mean it can't happen if course.

ok so I went out to take pics and you're right, it is more fuzzy than actual fraying. Will it hold up over time though? DD is only 22 mths, we plan to use this seat until at least when she turns...she is pretty small so that will be a a few yrs still.

And another question. The headwings tend to slowly work down. I got chewed out on fb because they were low and dd is on the second slot. I have heard of others making a parental choice to move them down even if the child is not on the 3rd slot yet. But they said that she would hit her temples on it and die. I decided to move them down instead of fighting with them to stay up. Is it truly a danger to have them down? If so, is there any tricks to keep them up? I just don't like looking back and realizing they are low again and having to remember to keep pushing them back up.

You can tighten the screws on the head wings.
