ATLANTA, Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Graco is helping parents usher in a rite of passage – the end of the summer family road trip – with the new Extend2Fit 3-in-1 Car Seat. The newest addition to the award-winning Graco car seat line features a three-position extension panel that provides five inches of extra legroom, allowing children to ride rear-facing more comfortably for a longer period of time.
Currently, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children ride rear-facing until two years of age or until they have reached either the maximum height or weight limit of their rear-facing car seats.* In fact, many parents transition children to forward-facing car seats early because their legs hit the back of the seat and they appear less comfortable. The new Graco Extend2Fit 3-in-1 Car Seat is intended to grow with a child. In addition to five extra inches of legroom, this product is really three car seats in one: rear-facing with harness from 4 - 50 lbs., forward-facing with harness from 22 - 65 lbs., and high-back belt-positioning booster from 30 - 100 lbs.
"One of the most common requests we receive from consumers is to help make kids more comfortable in the rear-facing position as they grow taller," said Erin Varano, Brand Marketing Director, Graco. "Designed with both safety and comfort in mind, the Extend2Fit 3-in-1 Car Seat features an innovative three-position extension panel that adjusts to provide five inches of additional leg room allowing your child to ride safely rear-facing longer."
Additional safety and ease-of-use design elements include:
- 10-position adjustable headrest and a 6-position recline accommodates growing children
- Steel reinforced frame provides strength and durability for up to 10 years of use
- Fuss-free harness storage which holds the buckle out of the way for easy in and out
- SimplySafe™ Adjust harness system helps parents easily adjust the height of the harness and headrest together
- Easy-to-read level indicator eliminates installation guesswork
- InRight™ LATCH system for a one-second LATCH attachment
- Machine washable seat cover makes clean up easy for parents
