you guys will probably be disappointed. here's a pic that should narrow down the guesses. if tre sees this one he should be able to guess it.

Its a car seat holder for my daughter. She should be here in early september and the Mrs. isnt too wild about riding in the back while the baby is up front. This "baby cage" holds the sear very snugly and has two tie down points to be used with the strap that comes with the seat. There was a thread a while ago that Gumby made just like this but all his pics didnt work since it was so old.

Its very sturdy and to get it in and out you have to lift the front end up then pull it all out. basically, it wont come out if you just pull the whole thing straight up. I would bet my life that a car seat strapped in this "holder thing" is way more secure and safe than just belting the seat to a bench seat.

I liked the bed / bench seat idea... that would be nice for me since I commute to school and have 2-3 hour breaks sometimes...

Ehh I dunno bout this... I wouldn't trust it with my babies life, but that's just me... Don't take your truck to pick them up, because if the hospital has to do a car seat check before you leave, they will most likely to tell you "NOPE" as that's not an approved carseat holder.... Nice idea, and execution, just wouldn't trust my kid in it!

When we left the hospital, they didn't really even check anything. I know they saw the carseat, but the didn't mess with it. They just let us load up and go home lol.

Dude, are you saying that it just sits in there and isn't strapped down? That is horrible, it needs to be strapped in atleast. Any impact (say a small car t-bones you) is going to have upward and sideways momentum and easily throw that thing out of it's carrier. Not to mention the legality of the whole thing. You get in a wreck, something happens, child services will be all over your *** for not having it properly secured.
Just my thoughts...
