For many years, the Graco line of SnugRide rear facing only car seats has been a well-fitting, easy to install and use mainstay of the car seat market.
With this long history of awesomeness in our pockets, we were excited to learn that Graco was releasing a new line of seats with an updated, easy to install base: the SnugLock line. This review covers the not-very-base-at-all base model, the SnugRide SnugLock 35.
Key Features of the primary SnugRide SnugLock models (other variations may be available):
The SnugRide SnugLock 35 featured in this review has 4 harness slots and standard j-hook lower anchor connectors on the base. It does not have a no rethread harness.
There are two other SnugRise SnugLock models that are slightly different. The SnugRide SnugLock 35 DLX has 4 harness slots on the infant carrier portion of the seat larger SnugLock arm and premium lower anchor connectors.
The SnugRide SnugLock Platinum has a no rethread harness on the infant carrier portion of the seat, the larger SnugLock arm, and premium lower anchor connectors.
This review covers the SnugRide SnugLock 35, but most of the analysis applies to the other two models as well.
