From the seat facing side of the base, users can easily pull up a foot rest for the child inside. This will save the back of the car's seat from getting kicked and dirty. Also, once the child is old enough to keep the seat in the car full time vs. removing the seat with the child inside, simply move the handle all the way backwards to keep it out of your way for easy buckling and unbuckling. Finally, the latch system is on this seat and tucked into the compartment on the very front of the car seat's base.
This is such a wonderful innovation and I'd love to see it on EVERY car seat.
Since the seat is also made with a new, Click Connect system, there is a new stroller to go with it. The Click Connect system seems a lot more user friendly to me. I don't fight with getting the seat out of the base half as much as I do with my other Graco seat. The stroller is designed to work with the new Click Connect system as it "clicks" in 2 different places now, rather than just on the back of the seat, but the handle on the back of the seat is the same and people familiar with Graco SnugRide seats will feel comfortable using this new style.
