Safety 1st Jive 2-in-1 Convertible Car Seat Review
The Jive Convertible Car Seat has two seats in one, keeping your child safe from 5 to 65 pounds. It can be installed rear-facing up to 40 pounds or forward-facing up to 65 pounds. It also has a reversible harness for easier installation and removal.
Rear-facing installation using vehicle seat belts
When installing a rear-facing child safety seat, make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions. The lap belt should be installed low across the child’s upper thighs and the shoulder belt should be installed across the shoulder and chest but not across the child’s neck or face. The child’s back and hips should rest against the back of the seat and their feet should be flat on the floor. Rear-facing safety seats are recommended for children until age 12 years.
While many cars have the ability to install rear-facing child restraints using lower anchors, most vehicles do not have this feature in the center position. In such cases, a seat belt installation is still a safe option. The lower anchor limit for most cars is 55 lbs for vehicles before 2008 and 65 lbs for vehicles after 2008. Keep in mind that the weight limit for your child is also the weight of the car seat and the child in it.
