true fit?

can the top 2 slots be used for RF? I cant find a manual online. I know radian words theirs funny so people think you cant use the top ones for RF but the mean you cant use the lower ones for FF. If the top 2 cant be used RF WHY?

Going off the top of my head I believe the very top one is FF only.

I also think just the very top one cant be used RF, and it is due to the height of your child and the height limit of the seat for RF. If they need the top slot, they have passed the height limit for RFing.

Yeah, that top slot is pretty darn tall. My almost 7 year old has about 2 inches to go on that slot (FF of course). He's small, but still....

Re: true fit?

There is a sticker right on the side by the harness adjuster that tells you.


Going from bottom to top : #1 RF ONLY #2 RF or FF #3 RF or FF #4 FF ONLY

True, BUT many were stickered incorrectly. Mine says 1 & 2 RF only, 3 & 4 FF only, which isn't the case. The First Years has clarified that you can use the 3rd slot for RF but just going by the seat, it would be wrong

OP, here is the manual online. http://content.learningcurve.com/con...uctions_EN.pdf

Page 37 tells you about harness heights and rf/ff.

I don't have the seat a friend had posted that you couldnt use the last 2 rf which didnt make sense. I thought it was probably worded like the radians

Really? Hmm, people keep saying my 4 1/2 year old is tall, maybe she is, she's been on the top slot for awhile and pretty sure it is less than 2 inches to go She seems to have her height in her body!


Thanks for the comments about some being mislabeled, I didn't realize that and makes more sense if it comes up in conversation!
