Car seat links quick!

On another forum I frequent there is a mama that was talking about turning her 11 month old ff early because she gets fussy in the car. I sent her a quick note about how much safer rear facing is and she thanked me. But then she said she was planning on getting an Evenflo seat with the bar that comes down for her 6 month old when she outgrows her bucket. I know I've read and been told that these seats are dangerous but I don't have any info to back it up. Can someone post some links about these seats?

No links handy, but the technical term is "t-shield" so you may find some info by googling that term. Also try car-seat.org for lots and lots of info. I believe the t-shield seats are ffing only, she'll save money by getting a convertible without breaking the law.

Actually t-shields are no longer on the market. The ones with the bar are called tray shields or over-head shields.
