I often have to take this horrid seat apart to get it in and out of my mini-van. I cannot lift it when it is all one piece. It is way too heavy. When I take it apart, it feels as though the chair weighs fifty pounds, and the stroller base weighs twenty pounds. The seat is heavier than my son.
I took this chair out of my trunk and assembled it for the 50th time probably. I hate this seat and I curse it every time I have to put it together. I thought Andy's seat was locked in place. I pushed him down the driveway to get on his school bus, nothing seemed off.
I get a phone call from the transportation office saying, "Your son's seat became detached, and you need to get to the next bus stop right away". They couldn't answer if he had been hurt they didn't know. I get there to find blood all over my son's face, and a horrible gash on his head. When the bus driver came to a stop, he and his seat went flying off the base, which was secure to the floor. It is so heavy, the seat belt going across his chest wasn't enough to keep them from slamming to the floor.
We went to the ER for facial X-rays and 6 stitches.
