I am a nanny and have been a nanny for 16 years and I also have a 4 1/2 year old girl. I install and remove car seats from my car very often and have been doing it for a longer than most. This car seat might be heavy, but it is incredibly easy to install and comes with all the things to make sure you are installing it as safe as you can! Have been seen the bones of this thing! Wow! Removal is a bit more tricky due to fitting 3 of these across in my smallish wagon. Note: these are the only car seats that fit 3 across in my car! So with the limited space it is a bit tough to take out a specific car seats. Since I have a range of ages in the car. I have to unbuckle two car seats due to buckles being towards the center of the car. To get to specific seats. When you have three car seats together it is difficult to stick your hand behind and in between seats due to the design of the sides... there isn't much room for my small hands to fit between car seats to get to the seat belt buckles to unhook. I cut my knuckles every time! With that being said! I still think these are the best car seats! If I didn't need to have 3 car seats in my car (all next to each other) installation and removal would be a breeze! I can't forget about Talking about washing. Washing is also super easy... Ever have a kid throw up in your car? Have an accident? A diaper explosion? After a couple, I finally bought Diono's seat protector. That thing has saved me from pulling the whole car seat apart and out so many times! Through potty training, illnesses and baby butts I love the seat protector! If you don 't have a protector right away, taking the cover off and pulling the straps out is pretty self explanatory and easy as well as putting itback together. One last thing, traveling with this car seat on a plane! OMG! It fits in the seat like a glove and doesn't crowed anyone else! My kid also as a bonus stays seated perfectly because she knows while being in the seat that's what she is suppose to do!

I bought this seat thinking it would be able to take my child from her last 5 pt car seat all the way to 57" tall and ready to move to a seatbelt. As a 5 pt car seat for younger children it is definitely a 5 star seat. However, Diono needs to be a bit more realistic when advertising it as a seat for children up to 57" and up to 120 lbs. Unless your child is built like an Oompha Loompha (in which case he wouldn't fit in the narrow frame) he has no hopes of using this seat until he nears the height or weight maximum. I had my older child, and several of her friends, all between 52" and 56" try to sit in the seat and there was no way they could get their shoulders underneath the headrest to lean back. Unless you were very thin, had an extremely short torso, and VERY long legs, you could not sit in this seat once you were over 51" tall (6 inches short of the recommended height for seatbelt only... And 6" short of what Diono advertises this seat can be used for). My older daughter has a BMI that places her in the 15th percentile (shaped like a model, tall and thin, has long legs, and is just shy of 54") she cannot lean back because, even when the headrest is raised to the highest point, the shoulders of the headrest are too low. I am really regretting this purchase for my Kindergartner. She is already over 48" and only has a few inches more to grow before she can no longer use as a 5 pt and wouldn't fit under the shoulders of the head rest to use as a booster. Give us a break, Diono... Advertise it as it should be used... A 5 pt and a booster mode realistically up to maybe 52" tall.

Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Black Mist):

Yes this car seat is heavy. The weight of the car seats means nothing to me, safety is everything. I'm purchasing a second one to put in my husband's car because I believe in this car seat. You cant put a price tag on your child's life and I believe this seat is well worth the money. I was researching less expensive seats but ended up spending the extra to buy this one. I am very impressed.

    Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Black Mist):

    I bought this product with the understanding it could be used rear facing. When my daughter outgrew the infant seat I bought, we switched her to this. (The infant car seat is the best for infants because they are portable- this one can not be easily taken out if the infant goes to sleep in it.) It is so tall and bulky when it is rear facing, I can not recline or move my seat back to a comfortable position and I am only 5'5". My husband can't even have the seat behind him in. We can only use it in the cross over suv (Qx60), I can't fit it into my Passatt rear facing. Also, my daughter is average size for 1 years old (3x birth weight) at 1 years old- so she is 20lbs. We just noticed when we installed this- on the side there is a sticker that says rear facing maximum weight is 20lbs. Online it says upto 45 lbs. I don't know what's safe or not- but in California toddlers by law must be rear facing up to 2 years old- so basically I wasted my money on this. I am so disappointed. I am going to try return it- but unfortunately this was something I got for the baby shower over a year ago. I am sure this is a great option for front facing 2+ years old... but infant and toddler upto 2 years old is not good in my opinion.

    Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Black Mist):

    I have to admit .. i have browsed through a lot of these comments and i cant believe how much people are crying about these car seats . especially the weight . ITS A STEEL FRAME !!!!!! its not this cheap all plastic design from other manufactures .. they are designed to be heavy and durable .. GROW UP .. and installing these car seats is a breeze ..i just believe a lot of people give these car seats bad ratings because they lack patience and true common sense .. but any who .. i own 6 of these things .. 3 in the back of a 2014 Chevy Malibu & 3 in the back of a Chevy equinox .. i have a 2 1/2 year old and 13 month old twins .. from opening the boxes to having them 100% installed in the vehicles 15 minutes for the Malibu.. 20 minutes for the equinox ONLY because removing the head rest in that vehicle is a PAIN ...but i personally love them .. easy to put the kids in . easy to install , easy to remove .. ( even though they are not meant to be constantly moved) just do me a favor . before a majority of you give something a bad review . look in the mirror and see if you the problem VS the product ... 95% of the time , the customer is NOT always right .... geez

        Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Black Mist):

        My wife purchased two of the Diono RXT car seats at the same time. We have had them for a couple months now. We are giving them away. I'd feel guilty taking someone's money for these car seats. They are a extreme pain to move from one vehicle to another. I can't ever seem to get them real tight. Overall I don't even like looking at the clumsy pieces of junk because I absolutely hate them at this point. We have had the best of luck with the new car seats we bought. The new car seats are Britex tight click. They are super user friendly.
