    Default Car seat installed and loose...

    I recently had my mothers choice car seat installed by QLD ambulance. The top tether is pretty loose and the top of the seat can move side to side. The installer said that was ok and it's good to absorb some of the impact in a crash. This just seems strange and dangerous to me so I was hoping to hear what other people think!

    I have 2 different mothers choice seats. One is a looser fit than the other when rear facing. Forward facing they are fine. I found the difference was the shape and width of each seat and the way my cars seats are made. I just did them up as securely and firmly as I could and they had an acceptable amount of movement.
