%REPLIES%. Answer . If the vehicle has two rows, the middle of the back seat. If the vehicle has 3 rows, the middle of the second seat.. Answer . And that just about says it all. Even with side impact protection, airbags, door beams etc, the safest place for any child seat is as far as pos…sible from the potential impact. The absolute middle fo the vehicle is ideal.. Answer . The above answers are correct. However, it is not always possible to put the seat in the center position. Some vehicles prohibit the use of the center position for a carseat (IE Chevy Blazer), so ALWAYS double check your vehical owners manual. Also sometimes the carseat won't fit well in the center position, so in such a case you would try it in the outboard positions. If it fits there better then in the center, it is better to have the seat in the outboard position. A great fit outboard is better then a poor fit center. \n. \nJen E AKA Carseatmom- Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician and mom to 3 in seats!. ( Full Answer )

What do you mean by "Tow", are you talking about tethering? If so, then the answer is "depends on the seat". There are a very small handful of seats that will allow you to tether rear-facing. Read your owners manual.. Jen E. - Ceritified Child Passenger Safety Technician of 6 years.
Hi, I have TWO children and I have had TWO pickup trucks.... So, ANY full size pickup with four doors will easily hold two forward facing car seats. Mid-size and smaller pickups with four doors MAY hold two seats but a trial fit would be required to be sure. Pickups with the smaller rear doo…rs (they are about 2/3 the size of a regular rear door) and fold up jump seat will not hold two rear facing car seats. I have a DODGE 2500 MegaCab. This pickup will easily hold three forward facing car seats. Mike ( Full Answer )

I have the Graco Safeseat. It has been wonderful. Our daughter is 16 months old now and still comfortably fits in her rear facing seat. I am currently searching for a forward facing. You can't be a very tall person and sit in front of the carseat. Not with any type. But it can be done...you just hav…e to sacrifice some leg room. ( Full Answer )
well there are 2 things that your bby must reach first 1) your baby must be at least a year old. 2) your baby should be at least 20 lbs. Also make sure you child safety seat is neither too big or too small for your baby. We are worried about the safety of your beautiful child so ensure the seat is p…roperly anchored. This is a bare minimum for turning around a reversible car seat (those that can be faced towards the rear or front, depending on the size/age of the child). INFANT car seats however (which often double as carriers and face the rear by default) come with clearly printed guidelines regarding infant weight and/or height not to be exceeded. Many babies exceed the height and/or weight limit long before they are one year of age. Both of my sons were too large for their infant car seat before they reached six months of age. It is plainly dangerous to continue to use this type of seat with a child who is too large for it. If such a seat is used and outgrown, the next stage and safest method is to graduate the child to a reversible car seat still in the rear facing position and to keep it anchored and facing the rear so long as your child does not exceed the rear facing height and/or weight limits for that model. Your child could be well over a year before approaching either. As well, be sure to keep all straps at an appropriate height and tension. This may vary by model, so always read the safety information that comes with your car seat. THEY NOW RECOMMEND THAT BABIES/TODDLERS REMAIN REAR FACING FOR AT LEAST 2 YEARS AND UP TO AGE 4.

the front seat will be like that of rear one, i.e it will not be 2separate seats in front.so it may afford more than 2 personcomfortably in front
\nIf the car is only a 2 seater you can put a FORWARD facing car seat on the passenger side, but I'm not sure about a rear facing car seat.
What do I do if I have purchased a rear facing baby seat but cannot turn my passengers front seat air bag off do I place him in the back where I can't see him?
The rear facing seat is meant to go in the backseat of the car facing backward meaning the baby would be turned away from you. You can purchase a mirror that allows you to see the baby - they sell them at Babies R Us.

Bendix style brakes (almost all cars and trucks), short shoe to the front.---- Lockheed style brakes, usually used on small scooters, mini bikes etc.(anchored at one end), short shoe to the rear.
We have a 2001 which i think has the same body as yours and tried this today. The graco snugride was too big. The chico keyfit 30 fit a little bit better. On the chico the handle is a little lower than the graco and could fit through the rear door better. The chico is also about an inch or two short…er so you can put the passanger seat back just a bit more. We got a bit more room by putting it in the center, but honestly that is a pain having to reach over that far for someone like me without much upper body / abdominal strength. Neither of them were ideal. We went to babies r us and they let us bring them all out to the parking lot to try. On the bright side, your huge trunk space ought to fit the travel system strollers if you want them! ( Full Answer )
Why is a backward facing car seat safer for an infant than a seat that faces forward during a collision or abrupt stop?
Its safer for the seat to be facing backwards, because during a collision or an abrupt stop the infant would not be able to slip out of the car seat, and also so the infant will not choke on the car seat's seat belt. It is also safer to have an infant/child to be sitting in the back seat and not in …the front passenger seat until the recommended age. ( Full Answer )
It is recommended by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety that all children should ride rear-facing in back seats until they are 2 years of age or until they reach the height and weight limit of their child restraints. When children reach the height and weight limits of their infant seats, …they should be moved to convertible seats, but should continue to ride rear-facing for as long as possible. Some convertible seats have rear-facing weight limits of 40 pounds or higher. When children reach the rear-facing height and weight limit of their child restraint, they should be turned forward-facing in a convertible or another forward-facing child restraint. They should remain in forward-facing child restraints in back seats for as long as possible. Some forward-facing seats have weight limits only up to 40 pounds but many forward facing seats now go up to 65 and even 80 pounds. When your child is AT LEAST 1 year and AT LEAST 20 pounds. Think of Newton's laws of motion... an object in motion will want to stay in motion. If you get into a car accident and your child's seat is facing forward, the 5 point harness will stop your child's body, but not the head! It can cause paralysis, or even death. If you get into a car accident and the seat is rear facing, your child will be pushed into the shell of the car seat and there is a higher chance of your child surviving the crash. ( Full Answer )
One year AND 20lbs!! Rear facing is the MOST safe for babies, so don't rush it!!

The impact of a deploying air bag striking a rear-facing child seat could result in severe injury or death to the child?
An air bag can severely injure of kill a young child if they arenot old or big enough to be sitting in the front seat. Car seatsafety varies by state, but once the child outgrows a booster seat,he or she is permitted to ride in the front seat with a seat beltaround the age of 13.
It really doesn't matter these days but mostly 6 yrs and up i guess. It's just more safer for little children under 10 to be in the backseat to me.
it really depends what state your in but it is just smarter to have it in the back seat
Conventional projection uses a projector in front of the screen, hence the term "front projection". It is also possible to project from the rear of a translucent screen, "rear projection". The problem with rear projection is that the image will be reversed left to right. Video projectors all have …a menu setting that allows the image to be reversed before it is projected so the resulting screen image will be seen the right way round. The question mentions movie projectors suggesting a film projector rather than a video projector. Because a film projector is fully optical there are no electronic methods to reverse the image but it can still be done. Most projectors allow alternative lenses to be fitted. Using a specialist reversing lens will correct the image orientation but they are expensive. The image can also be reversed using a mirror in the light path. The mirror needs to be a front silvered mirror, one that has the reflective coating on the front rather than the rear as this avoids double images. This is much the same process as a reversing lens which has a mirror or prism inside the lens housing. Front projection distances tend to be large, with the projector being at the rear of a room. Rear projection rooms or cabinets are generally much shorter so wide angle lenses are often used to produce a large image from a short distance. A movie projector should have a short focus lens to reduce the required projection distance if possible. However, by using a mirror, the projection distance can be extended as the effective distance is the sum of the distance from the projector to the mirror and the mirror to the screen. Careful positioning of the projector and mirror will be needed and this is not as simple as it first appears. It may well be worth looking at dedicated mirror mounts to get the right result.

Well obviously is the front of something in your face. What's with people and obvious questions these days? GOSH GIVE IT A REST.
Backward seats are proven to be less damaging to a person in an aircraft accident. Your forward momentum is reduced by, at the minimum, 26g. Standard airplanes don't have backward seats because the passengers want to be able to see what's ahead of them. Backward seats do actually save lives.

While there are rear facing seats in limousines and rear facing seats in some older 9 passenger station wagons (commonly referred to as the 'barf' seat) installing one in a Solara presents special challenges. The biggie, it's only a 2-door car so climbing in and out of the back is already a little d…icey for many adults. You'd need to remove the existing rear seat to provide legroom. All in all, not a practical modification. Now, if you're asking about installation of a 'baby' seat, the owner's manual both for the Solara and the seat should offer specific (and safe) procedures. Many police departments will also offer help including a demonstration. Cheers ( Full Answer )
this is a very ovious awnser, the seat is heated it you turn it on
