Re: britax 85 vs radian r120

climbing all the way through with him trying to toss him over to fit in a very crowded back seat does not sound like that would be a good thing considering that is daily and several times a day. I think I would be staying home a lot especially with 3 kids that will need buckling. I can't picture putting him in through the back either that would be some manuvering lol. FF is safe for his age when babe comes and the best option for us. If they are in 5pt harness only mama buckles or teenage dd.

Alright. I would try the seats you have now in the back before buying another seat. The CA is fairly narrow also and the Britax you have may puzzle well next to it. I'm not positive as I have never owned either of them.

What's wrong with the length of the crotch strap?

You can contact Harmony for a new longer crotch strap if it is a problem (not all kids have had a problem with it) they will ship it to you free if you want it.
