Cons

This seat has a portion of its disadvantages too. The LATCH straps are short and this may pose as a shortcoming in some vehicles. However, you can overcome this shortcoming by making use of the easy to install seat belt. Another con is that you may need to make use of additional rolled/noodles towel to arrive at an optimum recline. This may be the case if you are using carriers that lack bases. Also, the buckle can pose a big challenge when it comes to moving it from one position to another.

Conclusion

The new B-safe 35 seat is the real deal when it comes your child’s safety. You will love it for its easy to use features and the easy recline adjust ability. Its easy to install feature makes it among the best infant car seats around. The cons are far much minor compared to the pros and you can easily work them around. The fact that the slide lockoffs are in-built ensures that the seat belt is securely crabbed providing extra protection to the child. The use of lower LATCH connectors that are push-on is a commendable approach. The handle is comfortable making carrying easy.
