Can I swap the crotch buckle?

between my sons Graco MyRide and my daughter's Graco Nautilus?

We just got DD a Graco Nautilus this year and the crotch buckle is different than the buckle on our 2 year old MyRide and our other 2 year old Nauti...anyway, DS2 has figured out how to unbuckle his crotch buckle (it's the 'press down here' one not the push in one) DD has a push in one.

She is 4 and smart enough to stay buckled while I'm driving, DS2 is only 2 and sorta naughty sometimes lol.

Anyway, can I swap the 2 crotch buckles out so DS2 can't get himself out anymore???

I don't know if they are interchangeable or not. Call or email Graco and ask.

I think you should be able to, but I'd ask, too.

ETA: and I'm pretty sure you'd have to switch the whole buckle assembly, not just the crotch strap.

And when I had a buckle issue they replaced the whole seat saying the harness was not replaceable? I dunno but I ended happy.

You would have to switch the buckle and tongs. I remember someone (non tech) saying she had called and they said you couldn't switch them even between the same seat. I don't see why not but I would call and find out for sure.

Okay...I'll call Graco and ask.

It's not a HUGE deal, it's just DS2 has escaped once and I know he'll do it again because he's super inventive like that LOL.

DS1 has a Nauti and the crotch buckle is the same as DS2s My Ride...they just changed it between 2011 when we got theirs and 2012 when we got DDs. Probably because kids were escaping LOL

Yay, graco is sending me a new crotch buckle, the press in version, free of charge. I can install that on DS2s seat...hopefully this will keep him contained, lol

Awesome. So whoever told me that the buckles weren't interchangeable was wrong. Good to hear.

Yeah, they can send a replacement I guess. They didn't want me switching them around though. Said they would send a replacement buckle for DS2s car seat since the style changed.

Either way, I've found a way to keep him half way contained...now just to find a way to keep the chest clip buckled LOL
