    I'd definitely try & get another anchor put in and ask about a 2nd opinion somewhere. My parents have a pegasus, but it's a few years old. The biggest issue with it is it's size. It's really wide compared with our Hi-Liner. Fine if it's on the side with nothing in the middle, but not good if it's right next to another seat.

    All the best for your hunt ... ask about an anchor point on the roof if the floor doesn't work.

    I might see if there's any way at all to get another anchor (it's an 8 seater van and all anchors on the back row are in use, I thought we'd be able to get another anchor on the middle row but the installation man today said no but it might be worth a second opinion).

    I guess they all comply with australian standards etc but it's obviously nicer to feel you're taking the safest option.
    You probably checked, but can the anchor came from either the ceiling or floor, may give you another option.

    Subbing as Ive been looking for one too. The only one Ive found though is the infa secure travellor, though Im not really keen on a folding one as Id assume a non folding one would be stronger/safer during impact?

    My sis had anchor points fitted in the middle row. I'd def get another opinion!

    Is the infasecure unanchored? Looks like it's a hard one but folds up?

    Yes I would even get a 3rd opinion. Yes, it is obviously nicer to feel you are doing the safest option. Even my little DD#2 who just turned 9yrs is still in her booster. Cars are so dangerous even when you do all the right things. Happened to people we know recently .

    Thank you everyone! I'm going to get the infasecure traveller ASAP (after checking the other suggestions above) as it seems the safest of the limited options available I've been able to find and then at least we're covered immediately when baby arrives (I'm 39.5 weeks lol) and then keep trying to get another anchor point as I feel like its def worth pushing for it ... I hope it will be possible!!
